Over the course of April 20-22 EmpoEX.com has reduced all non BTC trading pairs by over half and put delisting banners on the majority of BTC markets. Markets set for delisting need to have 1BTC of volume by May 8 or they will be removed. XEMP is now open to trade across all pairings and will see further developments at a later date.
The reduction in pairs and minimum volume requirements to avoid delisting are meant to sort out what coins still have strong communities so that EmpoEX can be a strong exchange. Future new coin adds will focus on unique markets mixed with a few high demand new launch coins. If your project dares to break the ordinary contact the exchange to submit a proposal.
