- Binance warns BitcoinSV holders on its exchange to withdraw them before April 22 to avoid losing their investment
- By fraudulently insisting he’s the real Satoshi Nakamoto, Craig Wright loses BitcoinSV being listed on the top cryptocurrency exchange in the world
- Craig Wright threatens to sue Vitalik Buterin among others over statements that he is not Satoshi
Binance, the most popularly known and used cryptocurrency exchange today announced that it will cease support for Bitcoin Cash Satoshi’s Vision (BCHSV) on its crypto exchange as 22nd April 2019; one week out. This is coming after a warning was issued by Binance’s CEO to Craig Wright that if he continued to claim he was the real “Satoshi Nakamoto.” BitcoinSV holders on the Binance platform are given till April 22 to get their BitcoinSV assets out of the exchange to avoid losing their investments.
Binance quits on BitcoinSV
The ongoing battle gets even tougher as Binance, one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world announces it is no longer supporting the BitcoinSV cryptocurrency. Prior to this, Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of the crypto exchange had in a tweet warned, Craig Wright of BitcoinSV to desist from trying to prove himself as “The Real Satoshi Nakamoto”:
Craig Wright is not Satoshi.
Anymore of this sh!t, we delist! https://t.co/hrnt3fDACq

Craig Wright for his part part had threatened to sue some big players in the cryptocurrency industry, including Ethereum’s founder, Vitalik Buterin, and Peter McCormack, famous for his podcast channel where in interviews the Who is Who in the crypto industry among others, as revealed by Calvin Ayre:
“Craig has started filing against those falsely denying he is Satoshi….they can all have a day in court to try to prove their fake case but the judge will rule that Craig invented Bitcoin because he did and he can prove it.”
Seems Binance is going ahead to delist the coin after all as mentioned above. The leading crypto exchange has in an announcement earlier today clearly withdrawn from supporting the cryptocurrency, the BitcoinSV. Reasons for this as revealed by the announcement includes an evidence of unethical / fraudulent conduct by the project team, unhealthy contribution to the crypto ecosystem, among others.
Binance therefore gives those who hold BitcoinSV tokens on the platform the grace up until the 22nd of April 2019 to move their coins out to avoid losing them completely. Also, trading activities related to BitcoinSV will halt on the exchange as well. Those who have trade orders on BSV will also find their orders deleted.
On the other side
Reportedly, a U.S. based company, BitKey Bank plans to launch a hardware wallet – the Keevo – which will support the BitcoinSV cryptocurrency. Though there is no specific date for the launch, it’s said to be sometime in May.
