Two major cryptocurrency exchanges joined the XRP trading suspension campaign in the wake of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) lawsuit filed against Ripple Labs on December 22, 2020.

Two Major Crypto Exchanges to Suspend XRP Trading in January 2021

The last week of 2020 started with the announcement of Okcoin, one of the oldest crypto exchanges in the industry. They’ve decided to halt XRP trading and deposits on the platform effective on January 4, 2021.

According to the firm, users who have borrowed from the XRP/USD margin pair, including borrowing XRP and USD, are required to return the borrowed value before January 3, 2021, 7:00 PM (PST time). On January 4, 2021, spot trading, margin trading, and deposits will be suspended starting 7:00 PM (PST time) “till further notice.â€

However, Okcoin pointed out that Ripple’s situation with the U.S. SEC “will take time to reach a resolution,†warning users to keep an eye on the developments about the turmoil.

Coinbase to Fully Suspend XRP Trading on January 19, 2021

On the other hand, U.S.-based crypto exchange Coinbase also made official its decision to suspend the XRP trading pairs on the platform, whose trading will be fully suspended on January 19, 2021, at 10 AM (PST time). Paul Grewal, chief legal officer of Coinbase, commented on the measure:

After Okcoin’s decision, Ripple’s token plummeted across the board over 6% below the $0.28 level, but then it managed to trim some losses. However, the sell-off continued to take the XRP reins, making it to dip below the $0.2 psychological area, also fueled by Coinbase’s announcement.

As of press time, according to markets.Bitcoin.com data, XRP is quoting at $0.183 (-36%).
