GUSD, Gemini-Backed Stablecoin Delisted On OKX

Crypto and derivatives exchange OKX recently declared the official delisting of the U.S-backed stablecoin Gemini Dollar (GUSD) alongside a February 1 move by digital asset trading platform Ouyi to exclude the GUSD flash exchange services.  

Ouyi Platform’s move to exclude the product followed online projects conducted by Ouyi’s risk control department based on the “Ouyi Rules on Hiding TOKEN and Offline Trading Pairs” to maintain “a healthy digital asset environment in the blockchain industry.” This is expected to optimize projects’ liquidity while at the same time dispensing users with a “good trading experience.”

Following the official announcement by Ouyi Platform, Wu blockchain said that flash swaps would no longer back the GUSD asset exchange.

According to the official announcement, the GUSD flash exchange service “touched the offline rules”, runs on “high risk”, and as such, would be processed “offline”. It is worth mentioning, therefore, that the declaration to delist was arrived at following a thorough market monitoring, including integrating the progress tracking with complains and feedback from the most of the project’s users.

Ouyi also articulated that they would implement the rules and keep providing attention to the enlisted projects, as stipulated on the “Ouyi Rules on Hiding TOKEN and Offline Trading Pairs.” This comes because the service foundation of the Ouyi platform hinges upon “safeguarding the rights and interests of all users on the platform.”

Moreover, the Ouyi platform expects to receive the majority of user support and cooperation, which explains why they have taken the initiative to remind users to strictly evaluate the “investment capabilities” as well as the risk tolerance bearing in mind that digital assets are a highly risky investment product.
