Dear Binance Team,
I used your spot api for half a year now and everything works perfectly fine.
On the latest delisting however, I encountered a little ‘problem’.
Symbol status can at the moment only be “TRADING”, when currency pair can be traded or it is in the delisted state, when you can’t trade it anymore.
The last delisting (this is the support article: https://www.binance.com/en/support/articles/24e25a86a7c44ac49f4a7efb3c28d56a-Binance-Will-Delist-ARN-FUEL-and-LUN-on-2020-07-20) was posted on 2020.07.13 exactly one week before the actual delisting.
My problem is, that symbol status for the affected currency pairs will be “TRADING” until the day of 2020.07.20, where they get delisted, so in the api there is no symbol status like for example “Will be delisted”, which should work the following way according to the above mentioned delisting:
before 2020.07.13 --> “TRADING”
after posting article about delisting (2020.07.13) - 2020.07.19 --> “Will be delisted”
from delisting date --> currency is actually delisted
Having an additional symbol status like that would help in these delisting cases, because making market sell order can be executed automatically, if the affected currencies are in the portfolio and if symbol state is “Will be delisted” the bot can be programmed to not even buy those currencies.
It would be very useful, if this status would be implemented in the future.
Thank you in advance for your answer.
