Kraken to delist Monero for UK customers by the end of November By Cointelegraph




In an email quoted by Reddit users, Kraken, the world’s eighth-largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, announced it would be delisting privacy coin Monero (XMR) in compliance with regulations in the United Kingdom. The platform will cease all XMR trading activities, set XMR wallets to withdraw-only, and force-liquidate any existing XMR margin positions after Nov. 26.

Through advanced cryptography, privacy coins like Monero obscure participants’ public wallet addresses and payment amounts when their transactions appear on the blockchain, making it improbable, in the context of current technology, for forensic entities such as Chainalytics to digitally trace the identities of the transacting parties.
