Polygon Is Discontinuing MATIC BEP-2: What Does This Mean?

Ethereum scaling solution, Polygon, has announced the discontinuation of its BEP-2 tokens. Polygon launched the MATIC BEP-2 token in 2019, after its MATIC listing and integration with the Binance DEX and its main chain (not the Binance Smart Chain). 

BEP-2 is a standard for tokens created by Binance to allow customers to send assets faster. The MATIC BEP-2 token was launched to provide added liquidity, autonomy, more trading pairs, and security for MATIC Holders.

Holders of the MATIC BEP-2 tokens will be required to transfer them to Binance and withdraw them as MATIC on Ethereum, Polygon, or BSC.

Polygon clarified that all BEP2 MATIC will burn when all users are swapping, wiping them from existence.
