Dash objects to ShapeShift culling of privacy coins

Cryptocurrency exchange ShapeShift recently delisted three privacy coins: , Zcash (ZEC) and Monero (XMR). This was an unexpected move to say the least, given the exchange’s historic commitment to privacy.

As a noncustodial platform, Shapeshift did not impose user identification requirements on traders in its early days, although this began to change with the gradual introduction of a mandatory membership model, compliant with Know Your Customer rules, as of 2018.
