SEC chairman Gary Gensler targeted stablecoin holders Coinbase (Circle – USDC), Bitfinex (Tether) and Binance (BUSD).

Binance CEO made critical statements for ETH and LUNA
As we mentioned in the news of Kriptokoin.com, Binance suspended withdrawals in Terra (LUNA) and UST coins due to the volatility in prices. Saying that the transactions will hang for a while, CZ shares that the teams are working hard to fix the problem:
Today, the system and Blockchain are quite busy. There was a server issue with Binance P2P transactions and is currently in maintenance mode. Our team is working on it. The problem can be fixed in 30-60 minutes. All other systems (spot and futures) are fine.
CZ is also the network of some users of the exchange Binance (BNB). To share that he can see Ethereum (ETH) and Terra (LUNA) transfers from the congestion, he also said on Twitter:
Deposits and withdrawals due to some Blockchain congestion and node synchronization issues with Ethereum (ETH) and Terra (LUNA) Processing may take longer than usual. All other networks are working fine. Our teams are following closely
Exchanges are delisting some altcoin projects
The largest centralized cryptocurrency exchanges often stop trading during periods of increased market activity. For example, Coinbase was unavailable during the meme coin boom in Q4 2021. To avoid such problems, some exchanges have started delisting Terra (LUNA), which has lost more than 98% in value in recent days. The crypto Twitter community is reporting that major Korean exchanges are considering removing Terra from their trading toolkit.
Also, derivatives trading platform PrimeXBT, new positions on LUNA/USD banned from opening and closed existing positions. You can find other delisted altcoin projects here.
