The largest derivatives exchange by trading volume has already taken a decision to delist binance coin (BNB), the exchange's native token, from Binance Uganda.
"At Binance.co.ug, we periodically review the trading volume and liquidity of the assets we list to make sure our high level of standard is met. Unfortunately, when this trading standard is not met, their performance is subject to review and may result in the delisting of the coin or token," the trading platform wrote in an official press release.
Binance will reportedly delist and cease trading on all trading pairs for the following token at 10:00AM EAT 2020/09/17.
Zhao claims the delisting is "a standard sunsetting process for Uganda exchange."
"All trading pairs are being taken down, one by one," Zhao added.

The Sandbox recently completed a token sale in which it raised around $3 million through Binance Launchpad, an exclusive token sales platform, Binance representatives told iHodl.
