The reason for the adoption of radical measures

Officially declaring the exclusion of BSV from its platform, starting next week, Binance explained these actions by saying that she came to this decision only after a thorough analysis, noting that “we believe this best protects all of our users”.

This step comes just a few days after Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, tweeted a warning that the exchange may exclude a coin BSV in response to the behavior of its Creator, Craig Wright, and his threats against those who call him a fraud.

Wright has appointed a reward of BSV in the amount of $5,000 for information regarding the disclosure of the identity of Hodlonaut that negatively reacted cryptologist on Twitter, creating the hashtag #WeAreAllHodlonaut to support the user.

Not all users of the delisting BSV found support. One commenter said that “these actions are similar to what PayPal at the time did with Wikileaks. As a maximalist BTC I don’t like it. It goes against what BTC means freedom”. As you know, in 2010 payment company PayPal has frozen the account of WikiLeaks, stating that it violates the TOS of PayPal.
