“Above all, we are disappointed to take this step,” an eToro representative said. “eToro will continue to be active supporters of the crypto ecosystem.” Cardano, which was founded in 2015 by ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson, has surged this year but struggled in recent months. Ada rocketed from 18 cents at the start of 2021 to an all-time high of $3.10 in early September, but has since collapsed to $1.70. It is still the sixth-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, according to the data provider CoinMarketCap.
The news came as a surprise to the crypto community, particularly after Luxembourg exchange BitStamp announced it would list cardano last week. Hoskinson downplayed concerns.
The Israeli exchange cited regulatory concerns as the reason for its decision to delist the two cryptocurrencies. From Boxing Day, US-based users will no longer be able to buy ada or tron, while staking for those assets will end on December 31. eToro has surprised crypto investors by announcing it will delist cardano’s ada token and the TRON Foundation’s tron token for US customers from December 26.
“The regulatory landscape for crypto is evolving rapidly,” an eToro spokesperson told Insider. “As a result, we will be limiting the ability for US users to open new positions in, or earn staking rewards for, ADA and TRX.”
eToro has surprised the crypto community by delisting cardano’s ada token.
By the end of 2021, investors will be unable to buy ada on the exchange platform.
eToro cited regulatory issues, but cardano founder Charles Hoskinson brushed off concerns.
eToro also announced it will delist tron, the native token for Chinese-American entrepreneur Justin Sun’s TRON Foundation. Tron’s price has risen from 3 cents to 10 cents this year, and it is currently the 30th-largest cryptocurrency by market value on CoinMarketCap. “We didn’t even get delisted,” he tweeted, in response to a comment about the BitStamp listing. “Ada is still on etoro and non-US customers can freely trade.”
