Polymath (POLY) to be Dropped by KuCoin

Announcement

In a recent announcement, KuCoin has informed its user base that it will be delisting various tokens from its platform. Among those being delisted are POLY. These are tokens native to digital security platform, Polymath.

Users of KuCoin have been informed that trading activity supporting these tokens will cease on February 3rd. For those that find themselves with coins being stored on the platform, KuCoin will facilitate withdrawals until May 3, 2019.

If you are reading this, and you have POLY tokens on KuCoin, remove your tokens while you still can.

Special Treatment Rule

The decision to delist POLY, along with various other tokens, comes after each was put on a type of probation. Otherwise known as the ‘Special Treatment Rule’. KuCoin lists 11 reasons why a token may find themselves put on probation, with the threat of being delisted. Here is an excerpt from their explanation of the Special Treatment Rule.

  1. Low liquidity for a certain period of time
  2. The project ceases or is likely to cease its operation or business activities for 3 months
  3. The project fails to inform KuCoin of its material change(s)
  4. Fails to cooperate with KuCoin for regular routine inspection
  5. There is a security issue about the project’s technology
  6. The project development is not carried out according to the roadmap planned in
    the white paper, and there is no announcement of the progress on the project’s official website
  7. The project’s information disclosure is incomplete, misleading or untrue
  8. The project is insolvent or a step, order or proceeding for liquidation,
    bankruptcy, insolvency or similar is taken, made or commenced against or in
    relation to it or any material part of its assets
  9. The project or its team member (including but not limited to founders and
    consultants) is under investigation for a suspected breach of, or is convicted for
    an actual breach of, any applicable laws, statutes and regulations
  10. The project carries out market misconduct such as wash trading, market
    manipulation or insider trading
  11. Any other situation KuCoin may deem risky for its users or platform.

While it is unclear which of these situations Polymath found themselves in, they find themselves getting delisted nevertheless.
