Binance US will delist $HNT on March 21 as Helium is set to move to Solana on March 27.
Helium ‘Disappointed’ by Decision
Centralized exchange Binance US will delist the HNT token on March 21 ahead of the migration of Helium Network to Solana on March 27.
The Helium Foundation said they were “disappointed” by the exchange’s decision but understand their position.
“Helium’s migration to Solana is significant, and a first for the industry — on par with Ethereum’s transition from proof of work to proof of stake,” according to a Medium post.
Helium recommended that Binance US customers take their $HNT off the exchange and either put the tokens in the Helium Wallet or in another exchange that supports $HNT trading pairs.
In its delisting announcement, Binance US said upon review $HNT was deemed to no longer meet the exchange’s “high standards” and/or was affected by changed “industry circumstances.”

What Is Helium Network:
According to CoinMarketCap, Helium (HNT) is a decentralized blockchain-powered network for the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Launched in July 2019, the Helium mainnet allows low-powered wireless devices to communicate with each other and send data across its network of nodes. Nodes come in the form of so-called Hotspots, a combination of a wireless gateway and a blockchain mining device. Users who operate nodes thus mine and earn rewards in Helium’s native cryptocurrency token, HNT. Helium aims to prepare IoT communication for the future, identifying inadequacies in current infrastructure from its birth in 2013.
