Today's #cryptonews• OKCoin suspends Bitcoin Cash. • Bitcoin SV trading • New ETFs.
  • Fiat-to-crypto exchange OKCoin said it will suspend bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin SV (BSV) trading on March 1 because of the platform's "commitment to protect Bitcoin." OKCoin CEO Hong Fang said that the company feels "very disturbed by the copyright claim and threat of legal actions that Craig Wright is waging against the open-source community." "If we continue to allow trading of BSV on our platform, we run the risk of implicitly supporting such an attack on the open-source nature of Bitcoin, which is highly destructive to the Bitcoin ecosystem (and the crypto ecosystem as a whole)," Fang said. As for BCH, she only said that "some may feel tricked or confused by the branding ambiguity between these assets and Bitcoin." "Should the BSV and BCH communities listen to the broader market and choose to rebrand away from Bitcoin in pursuit of their own path, we would be very happy to revisit our decision and change our stance on these assets," the CEO concluded. OKCoin is owned by OKGroup, the owner of the major crypto-to-crypto exchange OKEx.
