Major cryptocurrency exchange Binance to remove pairs from Sereum as FTX crash continues
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance will delist three Serum (SRM) trading pairs as fallout from the FTX crash continues. According to an announcement published on Friday.
The exchange will end trading the SRM/BNB, SRM/BTC, and SRM/USDT trading pairs on November 28.
Serum is a decentralized exchange protocol based on Solana that was championed by FTX since its inception. And the defunct exchange awarded SRM tokens to traders in the form of a weekly airdrop.
On November 14, the Solana Foundation said it had 134.54 million SRM in FTX, raising concerns about the future of the project.
The community forked the project the next day to protect against an attack that took place on FTX. The token subsequently rallied by more than 250%.
Most of SRM’s trading volume takes place on Binance, according to CoinMarketCap, though the token is still listed on Kraken, Kucoin, and Gate.io.

The bankruptcy proceedings of cryptocurrency exchange FTX have revealed many new aspects of its unethical practices. The latest revelation surrounding his stake in one of America’s smallest banks in rural Washington has raised new concerns about its operations and the alleged misuse of banking loopholes.
Farmington State Bank of Washington State, now renamed Moonstone, is the 26th smallest bank in the United States, with a single branch and three employees.
FTX invested in the rural bank through its sister company Alameda. Now bankrupt, with a $11.5 million investment in its parent company FBH as of March 2022. Alameda’s investment was more than double the bank’s value of $5.7 million, The New York Times reported.
FTX’s ownership of Moonstone is seen as a move to circumvent US banking license requirements, which many say is a rather complex task.
