The usual simmering scandal around Roger Ver's Bitcoin.com portal just got a lot more complicated. Now more than six hundred people have already gathered under the flag of a lawsuit against Ver's questionable actions.

First of all, Bitcoin.com, strangely enough, is owned by a Bitcoin Cash activist Roger Ver. And the whole layout and content of the site is, it seems, aimed at misleading people new to the crypto world, that Bitcoin Cash is, in fact “real Bitcoin” - from the placement of Bitcoin Cash above Bitcoin, to the non-existent monikers or color differentioation of BCH and BTC respectfully on the “Buy Bitcoin” page. But the most glaring insult to the community is that on the aforementioned page of Ver's site BTC somehow became “Bitcoin Core”, which is, in fact, just the name of the client app, not the currency itself. And Bitcoin.com is the only site to refer to BTC like that.

Oh, and let's not forget the most recent development – now the site presents BCH as Bitcoin. Throughout the site this change is the most prominent in the block explorer, which now has options of Bitcoin (BCH) and Bitcoin Core (BTC).

All of the above amounts to a serious case of fraud in the eyes of the community. So affected users have gathered in a Telegram group chat and are now planning to file a lawsuit against Bitcoin.com and Roger Ver. Already over 600 people have joined the group, including some notable personalities, such as Charlie Shrem, Richard Heart and Ibrea.org founder Ragnar Lifthrasir, who's long talked about reporting Bitcoin.com's wallet for being a fraud.

Right now the group doesn't disclose what legal steps will be made, just that the talks are on with the lawyers from Caribbean island of St. Kitts, where Bitcoin.com company is registered. The exact steps to be taken are purposefully omitted from the public discussion, because several people directly tied to the site in question have been banned from the chatroom.

Also, a website bitcoincomlawsuit.info was launched today so that all the people who've lost money due to the scheme can join in the lawsuit.

The Japanese exchange SBI Virtual Currencies will delist Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in June Cointelegraph reports.

It is noteworthy that SBI won't delist Bitcoin SV, which will be delisted by Binance and ShapeShift.

Among the main reasons for the delisting of the exchange called the decline in market capitalization of Bitcoin Cash. Also, representatives of the marketplace are convinced that BCH has recently become more at risk of an “attack of 51%.”

SBI

In addition, AMB Crypto reports that SBI is dissatisfied with the consequences of hard forks, as a result of which the BSV asset appeared, and Bitcoin Cash cryptocurrency itself has lost a significant part of its value in a short time.

Some users of social networks have expressed the opinion that the true reason for delisting Bitcoin Cash lies in the partnership of the management of the exchange with the company nChain, where Craig Wright, who supports Bitcoin SV, works.

Large exchange OKEx decided not to delist Bitcoin SV too. Moreover, until April 19, the launch of the FloatSV cryptocurrency exchange, created in partnership with OKEx, is expected to be launched, the main asset of which will be Bitcoin SV.
