Mithril’s ($MITH, @mithdotio) final tweet was in January 2021 (!!!). The group simply deserted the challenge and is now requiring itemizing charges again from #Binance . LOL.

Many others questioned whether or not it was truthful for the change to ask for safety insurance coverage in Binance’s native token to get listed. One other person questioned whether or not Binance’s deal with delisting primarily based on the worth of the token is the fitting strategy, given “if the worth has such an enormous weightage it will push tasks to pump/dump or artificially inflate costs each time it goes beneath set off worth?”
Binance didn’t reply to Cointelegraph’s query on the press time.
