Swipe Wallet, Bittrex and Ziglu will be delisting XRP, Wirex will not include XRP in a US version of the app
Swipe Wallet will be delisting XRP in response to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission taking legal action against Ripple.
According to Twitter, the Wallet said:
“Swipe Wallet will be delisting $XRP for our USA users on January 5th 00:00 UTC. At this time, deposits and exchanging of $XRP will be disabled. Users will be able to withdraw their $XRP out by January 12th 00:00 UTC Thereafter, the $XRP Wallet will be disabled for USA users.”
Swipe was acquired by Binance in July for an undisclosed sum. Swipe is already available in 31 countries, mostly in the European Union, and currently supports transactions in major fiat currencies, including the U.S. dollar, euros and pound sterling.
As The Block reported today, Wirex will not include XRP in a US version of the app when it launches in January and Ziglu has decided to suspend XRP trading as of January 12.
Since news of the SEC charges broke, the price of XRP has fallen more than 66% as some exchanges have announced they will halt trading for the token, including Coinbase, OKCoin, 21Shares, OSL, Beaxy, and CrossTower. Bitstamp is also planning to suspend XRP trading for US customers.
Update: Bittrex became the latest exchange to cut ties with XRP.
The $XRP markets will be removed on Friday, January 15th at 4:00PM PST.
