- Poloniex delisting
BURST was one of several coins to be delisted from Poloniex on May 17. Poloniex users have until June 17 to withdraw their holdings. We encourage users to use the Phoenix wallet to easily setup a new BURST account and transfer them over. Remember to secure your new account by making an outgoing transaction! In response, the Burst Alliance issued a statement on the issue.
