After crypto exchange Binance's decision to delist Bitcoin SV, anonymous exchange ShapeShift has also decided to drop the cryptocurrency, with Kraken considering to follow suit. Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken is also ostensibly considering to delist BSV, having posted a poll asking whether to drop the coin, or keep it for the sake of price discovery. Earlier today, Binance officially announced that it will delist BSV starting next week.
The move comes just a few days after Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, also known in the industry as CZ, tweeted a warning that the exchange could delist BSV in response to its creator's behavior Craig Wright. CZ's statement is presumably a reaction to Wright's - infamous in the industry for making multiple claims to be Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto - recent action against Hodlnaut, the Twitter user behind the Lightning Torch initiative. BSV is the result of a Bitcoin Cash update last November, when the coin's blockchain was split into two during the hard fork.
The protocol upgrade had divided the BCH community in two camps as there were two dominating proposals for the implementation of the BCH network in the form of Bitcoin ABC, represented by Roger Ver, and Bitcoin SV, which was led by Wright.
