The crypto market is currently witnessing the fall of the Luna token, whose value has gone down by 99% and is currently trading at $0.02295, at the time of writing, according to CoinMarketCap. 

Amidst this scenario, crypto exchanges have started delisting the token from their platform. After Binance and Crypto.com, the cryptocurrency exchange, Bybit has also delisted the LUNAUSD Inverse Contract on May 12 at 8 AM UTC. The announcement came from their official site.
