As a result of voting among its users, the Kraken Exchange decided to delist the Bitcoin SV (BSV) cryptocurrency, the creator of which Craig Wright was involved in a new confrontation with the Bitcoin community.
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 poll, which aimed to find out the users' opinion about the possible delisting of BSV, Kraken launched on Monday. According to its results, such a move was supported by 71% of more than 70,000 respondents who agreed with the opinion that BSV is a “toxic” asset.
BSV trading on Kraken will be stopped on May 1. Users are given time until May 15 for the withdrawal of assets.
Earlier, Binance and ShapeShift exchange platform reported on Bitcoin SV delisting. At the same time, OKEx said it would not take such a step.
