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%.”

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.

In the coming days, Binance Exchange will launch a series of BEP2-tokens, tied to different cryptocurrency rates, on its own Binance Chain blockchain. The first token of this type will be BTCB - its rate is tied to Bitcoin.

BTCB is backed with bitcoins located in Binance reserves. The address for storing bitcoins has already been made publicly available, so that users can verify that the token has the necessary support.

In the future, the BTCB / BTC trading pair will be launched on Binance.com. With its help, users will be able to convert the original cryptocurrency into the Binance Chain token. The price spread in this case will be about 0.1%.

According to Binance, in this way it can transfer cryptocurrencies based on its own blockchains to its ecosystem and currently not represented in the Binance Chain. The company expects the launch of new tools to increase liquidity and trading volumes at Binance DEX.

While this approach is more centralized than atomic swaps, we believe it provides a higher degree of ease-of-use to most traders. And most traders are already trusting Binance.com to hold their funds anyway.

To date, Binance has independently reserved 9,001 BTC and released 9,001 BTCB. The BTCB / BTC trading pair on Binance.com will tentatively appear within a day, and an asset will be added to Binance DEX after approval of the relevant offer.
