The decision of Bitstamp comes around 2 months after its rivals Coinbase and Binance were sued by the SEC in the US for offering securities. In its complaints, the regulator qualifies a number of cryptocurrencies, including MATIC and other tokens issued by Bitstamp, as such.
Bistamp follows in the footsteps of broker eToro, which also opted to withdraw MATIC, ALGO, MANA and DASH from its US offering last June.
Earlier this week, the Luxembourg-based trading platform announced that it was in the process of raising funds. It plans to launch new products in Europe in 2024.
