Monero [XMR] Hits a 6-Month Low as Major Exchanges Gear to Delist Privacy Coins

coingape

8mon ago

Monero [XMR], on Oct 14, fell to a 6-month low at $52.85 continuing with a downtrend which began almost a month ago. This downtrend, initiated by the news of XMR’s delisting from major crypto exchanges after the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) announced the “travel rule” for crypto exchanges, has resulted in a 35% dip in XMR’s price in less than a month.

The news of the implementation of FATF’s travel rule seems to have hit XMR rather gravely as OKEx announced its plan of delisting XMR on September 10. XMR, which was at nearly $76 plunged and closed at $72.23. However, buying resumed the next day and XMR jumped back to $74.41 after hitting a low of $70.16. It continued to climb up the charts till Sept 19, hitting $81.76. However, it could not sustain above the $80 mark for long and came crashing down to $72.92 on September 20. The downtrend which began on Sept 20 has pushed XMR price to the present $50 zone.

The FATF is an intergovernmental organization, comprising of 39 member countries, whose aim is to develop policies to combat money laundering. The FATF’s travel rule dictates cryptocurrency exchanges, some digital wallet providers and other firms to share customer data such as names and account numbers with institutions involved in receiving fund transfers. In other words, the rule demands virtual currency companies to behave like banks that share customer information with each other for wire transfers.

OKEx was among the first major exchanges which announced that that it will delist privacy coins – Monero (XMR), Dash (DASH), Zcash (ZEC), Horizen (ZEN) and Super Bitcoin (SBTC) from its platform. The design of these privacy coins makes it impossible for OKEx to verify the identities of the senders and receivers, resulting in non-compliance with FATF’s travel rule. OKEx was supposed to withdraw transaction support for these coins on the 10th of October, and stop withdrawal services on the 10th of December 2020. At the moment, all the coins except for SBTC are available on OKEx for spot trading.

South Korean exchange Upbit is another exchange that announced its plans of delisting privacy coins including Monero (XMR), Dash (DASH), Zcash (ZEC), Haven (XHV), Bittube (TUBE), and PIVX (PIVX).

In August, Coinbase also revealed that it is dropping support for Zcash.

ZEC has also been on a downtrend since the end of June. On 30th June, ZEC stood at $114. It began Q2 2019 by plunging to $96.69. The downtrend has continued and ZEC is now trading at $37, reducing to almost a third of its value at the beginning of Q2.

DASH had witnessed similar price movement. From peaking at $187.54 on June 26, it began Q2 on a bearish note at $156.42. In the time between the beginning of Q3 2019 and Q2 2019, it plunged further, losing over 50% of value to trade around the $70 mark. The coin is presently trading around at $71 at the time of writing this article.

Is this the end of Monero? Will FATF’s travel rule lead to all crypto exchanges delisting privacy coins? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
