The popular crypto exchange OKCoin has made a somewhat controversial decision to delist two Bitcoin forks – Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin SV (BSV). According to the platform’s CEO, the company is doing what’s in the best interest of Bitcoin’s ecosystem while trying to act against Craig Wright’s recent lawsuit urging various websites to remove the BTC whitepaper.
OKCoin Delists BSV and BTC
The exchange announced earlier today that it will suspend trading and altogether remove the two Bitcoin hard forks as of March 1st, 2021. Later on, Hong Fang, the CEO of OKCoin, published a detailed post to shed some light on the decision.
She reasoned that the exchange is frequently exploring which coins it should keep and which it should remove as part of its developing system. However, the BCH and BSV removals come with more “unique history and context.”
