Obviously, digital currencies that are still striving for prominence, especially those ones that are below the top 20 largest cryptocurrencies, face more challenges with crypto exchanges. This goes in line with the proposal of delisting Digibyte (DGB), recently announced by Poloniex exchange, which has since been trailed with reactions within the cryptocurrency sphere.
Poloniex Moves to Delist Digibyte (DGB)
A few hours ago, Poloniex, a San Francisco based cryptocurrency exchange aired its move to delist the digital token Digibyte (DGB) from its list of trading options.
The exchange made this known on its official Twitter handle. The major reason behind the proposed action was made discrete. The exchange only came out with the fact that DGB’s quality does not meet its listing standard any longer after a careful review conducted.
Poloniex Shared thus, “After a careful review, we decided DigiByte is not qualified per our listing standard. We will delist DGB soon. Details to be announced.”

Digibyte (DGB) Responds to the Proposed Delisting
About 2 hours later, the affected digital currency, Digibyte took to twitter to respond to the announced delisting proposal made by Poloniex exchange against its digital coin DGB.
In the response, Digibyte displayed its dissatisfaction with the displeasing and discreet measure taken against its token DGB. It pointed at the number of years they have mutually related in terms of crypto trading without rancor, but progress and great innovations.
