Bitcoin Cash BCH/USD, Ethereum Classic ETC/USD, Litecoin LTC/USD and Solana SOL/USD are all falling sharply Wednesday afternoon. Shares of several altcoins are trading lower during Wednesday’s session following a CoinDesk report suggesting Binance is leaning toward scrapping the FTX acquisition.
Our Benzinga team on Wednesday reported that, after less than a day of assessing the company, cryptocurrency exchange Binance is reportedly “very unlikely” to proceed with its proposed acquisition of struggling rival FTX.
Due diligence was a condition of Binance’s non-binding letter of intent for the acquisition, which was made public on Tuesday as FTX’s financial situation appeared to be spiraling out of hand.
