US crypto exchange Coinbase (COIN) follows through on its promise and suspends trading of Binance USD (BUSD), after the US Securities and Exchange Commission imposed regulatory measures on its issuer, Paxos. In fact, the announcement had been made at the end of February, when he specified that he would stop trading on March 13.
However, the Coinbase exchange clarifies that Binance USD withdrawals will remain open.
