#delistbsv: Kraken Joins ShapeShift, Binance and Others Saying Goodbye to Bitcoin SV

Coinspeaker #delistbsv: Kraken Joins ShapeShift, Binance and Others Saying Goodbye to Bitcoin SVThe US-based crypto exchange Kraken has announced that they are delisting Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (Bitcoin SV), a full-node implementation for Bitcoin Cash. In this move, Kraken follows Binance and ShapeShift that have already done the same.On April 15, Kraken asked the community’s opinion on whether BSV should be delisted. The results of the poll are as follows:Should Kraken delist Bitcoin SV (BSV)? #delistbsv— Kraken Exchange (@krakenfx) April 15, 2019On April 17, Kraken has announced delisting BSV based on the public opinion. Kraken will disable BSV deposits on April 22, trading will be stopped on all trading pairs on April 29 and, finally, withdrawals will stop on May 31.The people have spoken. Kraken is delisting BitcoinSV: https://t.co/8lSUfEYUYr#delistBSV— Kraken Exchange (@krakenfx) April 16, 2019Kraken explained:“Over the last few months, the team behind Bitcoin SV have engaged in behaviour completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for. It started with fraudulent claims, escalating to threats and legal action, with the BSV team suing a number of people speaking out against them. The threats made last week to individual members of the community were the last straw. ”The exchange added:“This aggression will not stand. Alongside other upstanding members of the community, and in consultation with more than 70,000 Kraken users, we have decided to delist Bitcoin SV.”It is notable that Binance and ShapeShift have also taken this decision due to the inappropriate behavior of Craig Wright, the outstanding proponent of Bitcoin SV, who ostracized himself from the crypto community several times by claiming he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto and threatening to sue everybody who claims he isn’t.As we have reported, Binance will also stop trading BSV on April 22. Earlier, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao had warned Craig Wright that if he continued to behave in an aggressive manner, Binance would delist BSV.Kraken’s CEO Jesse Powell admitted that the exchange was not a ‘big fan of the project’, but decided to support trading BSV because of customer demand. However, Powell noted that the coin didn’t necessarily meet Kraken’s listing standards.The exchange said:“Cryptocurrency is about creating a better world. At Kraken, we take this mission seriously. Our focus is on delivering the freedom digital currencies offer. Freedom from centralized systems, financial freedom and critically, freedom from oppression. Our vision of the future doesn’t work unless it works for everyone.”Kraken added:“A secure, sustainable and trustworthy ecosystem is only possible if community members live by these values. Crypto’s future is bright. There is no room for bad actors. We appreciate the community’s support as we work together to create the world we want to see.”Earlier, two other tokens were delisted by Kraken. Support for Namecoin was stopped because of its low volume and the necessity to support a technically onerous upgrade at some point. The other token, Iconomi, was delisted after its protocol was changed by the creators.OKEx Keeps Bitcoin SV, SBI Holdings Delists Bitcoin CashWhile some exchanges deal with unethical behavior of Craig Wright and stop supporting Bitcoin SV, others do not see any reason for joining the movement. OKEx, the leading global Bitcoin exchange, was considering delisting BSV, but after a rigorous review, it was decided to keep the currency.OKEx explained:“According to the OKEx Token Delisting and Hiding Guideline, BSV currently does not meet our delisting criteria. As such, OKEx has no intention to delist BSV for the time being. As a neutral platform, OKEx respects the efforts of all dedicated teams in advancing the technology of Bitcoin and has no inclination to certain technical directions.”A no less strange decision has been made by Japanese SBI Holdings. The exchange has started delisting Bitcoin Cash, explaining it by low market performance. By the end of April, support for Bitcoin Cash will be fully ceased. Until the end of June, customers will have to withdraw their BCH from SBI’s VC Trade platform.#delistbsv: Kraken Joins ShapeShift, Binance and Others Saying Goodbye to Bitcoin SV

Kraken is Delisting BSV Too. Joins an “AntiBSV” Trend Started by Binance and Followed by Shapeshift, BitTrue and Blockchain.com

A few hours ago, Kraken Exchange announced its decision to delist the BSV token of its platform, joining a movement promoted in the ecosystem to stop the toxic actions that Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre, main sponsors and financiers of the project have been doing during the last days. In a post shared on its official blog, the Exchange explains that the BSV team has manifested a series of unethical behaviors that threaten the philosophy of the community. Fraud, bullying, threats and confusion are some of the inappropriate behaviors that both Wright and Ayre have been doing for months: Over the last few months, the team behind Bitcoin SV have engaged in behaviour completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for. It started with fraudulent claims, escalating to threats and legal action, with the BSV team suing a number of people speaking out against them. The threats made last week to individual members of the community were the last straw. Kraken’s decision is not isolated, other important platforms have also got rid of any association with the token. The most important ones so far are: Binance, Shapeshift, Blockchain.com, BitForex and LiteBit. To preserve our integrity & community trust, we will delist $BCHSV before it causes trouble and destroys more confidence in the crypto space! $BCHSV will be delisted within 24hrs. Withdrawals will be kept open @BitrueOfficial . @cz_binance @ErikVoorhees @Curis_Wang https://t.co/BqxhMZBN3w— Bitrue (@BitrueOfficial) April 16, 2019 We appreciate the opinion of our LiteBit customers and the crypto community at large. So we would like to ask your opinion about the Bitcoin SV, should we follow the example of other major exchanges and delist Bitcoin SV? What do you think?https://t.co/EuDUVXiaCR#delistbsv— LiteBit.eu (@litebiteu) April 16, 2019 Should BitForex delist the $BSV token? #delistBSV— BitForex (@bitforexcom) April 16, 2019 Read more on our decision to discontinue support for #BSV by May 15th in our latest blog post: https://t.co/LzBPnTclxW https://t.co/rXtiRgxSaQ— Blockchain (@blockchain) April 15, 2019 We stand with @binance and CZ's sentiments. We’ve decided to delist Bitcoin SV #BSV from @ShapeShift_io within 48 hrs.— Erik Voorhees (@ErikVoorhees) April 15, 2019 Other important players have also spoken out against BSV. Tyler Winklevoss of Gemini Exchange jokingly commented that Gemini has never supported Craig Wright’s token. In a similar vein, Lolli.com “regretted” not being able to delist BSV, but reminded its users never to “list” shitcoins. Kraken’s team did not make this decision deliberately, A survey involving more than 70k respodents revealed that more than 70% of users consider BSV to be a toxic currency and should be delisted from the Exchange. Should Kraken delist Bitcoin SV (BSV)? #delistbsv— Kraken Exchange (@krakenfx) April 15, 2019 Kraken will disable BSV support in a staggered manner. In a first stage will disable deposits from April 22, then in the second stage they will eliminate any type of trading with this altcoin from April 29 Finally, users will be able to withdraw their tokens until May 31 to continue trading in some other exchange.

Kraken shows the door to Bitcoin SV [BSV]; joins Binance and Shapeshift to delist coin

Kraken the American cryptocurrency exchange has officially tossed Bitcoin SV out of its platform. Following the likes of Binance and Shapeshift, the San Francisco exchange announced the delisting of BSV on April 17. Kraken tweeted: “The people have spoken. Kraken is delisting BitcoinSV” As the Binance and Shapeshift decision collectively rocked the BSV market, Jesse Powell’s Kraken did not immediately join the delisting brigade. The exchange decided to gauge public opinion of a decision that could send shockwaves through the market. On April 15, Kraken put out a pool, which saw over 65,000 respondents on the BSV-delisting issue. An overwhelming majority of over 72 percent backed the delisting option, stating that the coin is “toxic” to the community. Only a mere 7 percent did not want the coin to be delisted while the rest didn’t bother too much with the issue. In a blog, Kraken also explained their motivation behind this move: “Over the last few months, the team behind Bitcoin SV have engaged in behaviour completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for. It started with fraudulent claims, escalating to threats and legal action, with the BSV team suing a number of people speaking out against them. This aggression will not stand. Alongside other upstanding members of the community, and in consultation with more than 70,000 Kraken users, we have decided to delist Bitcoin SV. Deposits will be disabled April 22. Trading will cease on all trading pairs April 29. Withdrawals will continue until May 31.” Unlike Binance that jumped the gun, due to the prominent support for the delisting approach, Kraken took a more measured path. It should be noted that Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance did float the possibility of a delisting days before the actual announcement. Several influencers backed delisting, not only from Binance but from a host of exchanges. The delisting cry comes after the two spearheads of the project Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre have been launching legal notices to those who contest Wright’s claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto and call him a “fraud.” Peter McCormack and Hodlonaut are two prominent crypto-influencers that have been subjected to this legal charge from the BSV camp.
