OKEx is presently ranked at the ‘1st position‘ on CoinMarketCap’s list of exchanges by daily adjusted trading volume, observing over $1.3 Bln volumes in past 24 hours.
According to the announcement, the exchange verified that BSV presently doesn’t meet the OKEx delisting and concealment criteria after reviewing its technology development, liquidity and compliance. The last tweet additionally explains the declared reason behind the decision as:
“As a neutral platform, OKEx respects the efforts of all dedicated groups in assisting the technology of Bitcoin [BTC] and has no inclination to certain technical directions.”
As ‘reported‘ earlier, Binance exchange has officially declared that it’ll delist BSV beginning next week.
However, some ‘users‘ have ‘recommended‘ that OKEx’s call to still keep listing BSV might have been influenced by the recent ‘announcement‘ of OKEx’ collaboration with Jack C. Liu, founder of cryptocurrency wallet named RelayX, to launch a BSV-based exchange.
The Twitter comments on OKEx’ post are divided between ‘users‘ claiming that neutrality is welcome on the exchange’s behalf, while there are some other users also who ‘insist‘ that BSV should be delisted from the platform.
Binance’s original delisting call comes after Craig Wright, the altcoin’s creator, set a $5,000 USD bounty in BSV for the info relating to the identity of Hodlnaut, the Twitter user behind the ‘Lightning Torch‘ initiative. Wright was supposedly ‘motivated‘ by the unknown Twitter user mentioning him a fraud and blamed him as ‘faux‘, claiming to be the mysterious creator of Bitcoin [BTC]- ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’.
However at the reporting time, Binance chief executive officer ‘CZ’ warned that he would ‘delist‘ the altcoin if Wright doesn’t change his behaviour, and acknowledged that he believes Hodlnaut’s statement: “Craig Wright isn’t Satoshi Nakamoto.”
Following Binance’s delisting, another cryptocurrency exchange ShapeShift also ‘decided‘ to remove the cryptocurrency, along with Kraken considering plans to follow the suit.
At the reporting time, BSV is presently trading at a price around ‘$56.08 USD‘, which is 18.45% lower within the red zone.
