Binance to discontinue XRP and TUSD as margin assets

Binance has made a formal declaration that it will be severing its ties with XRP, creating ripples in the market. Despite this, XRP managed to raise its price.

This decision of Binance also brings TUSD (TrueUSD) into the picture. The company’s view-point is that it will not accept XRP and TUSD as margin assets pertaining to its multi-asset mode. The formalities will take place on 28th May 2024. Besides this, from 14th May onwards, users will lose the option of shifting XRP and TUSD for purposes related to futures trading. Following May 28, all remaining amounts will, by default, transform into USDT (Tether). 

Before the transformation, Binance advises users to be careful and not take initiative for fresh futures positioning at the time of the makeover to steer clear of loss-making situations. Another factor is that the transformation will not instantly be visible in the user’s transaction history; therefore, they need to prepare themselves for it. 

All of this is taking place at a time when the lawsuit filed by the SEC against Ripple is drawing close to closure. On 13th May, Ripple filed omnibus letter motions for closing crucial aspects. This has the backing of CFO Jonathan Bilich for safeguarding critical financial data. 

Lawyer James K. Filan stressed that expunging Ripple’s financial data, contract conditions, and internal plans for protecting restricted information is extremely significant. 

The intention behind all these changes for Binance is to narrow down its functions and cope with market shifts. 

Presently, the pricing of XRP has risen by 0.51%, with a trading value of $0,5059. The volume of trade increased by 4.46%, reaching $815.87 million. XRP has been lowered to $0.4977, with a rise of $0.5117 during the past twenty-four hours.
