Calls to Delist Bitcoin SV (BSV) Intensify

The overall cryptocurrency community’s feeling toward Craig Wright (sometimes called ‘Faketoshi’) has continued to intensify this week after the computer scientist filed lawsuits against some individuals denying that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. This overall negative response to Wright’s current shenanigans has led to a widespread desire to see his coin, Bitcoin SV (BSV), delisted by exchanges on May 1.

The coin is already something of a pariah, with Ethereum (ETH) founder Vitalik Buterin calling it a ‘pure dumpster fire.’ 

Delist the Demons

The call to delist is not new. Binance founder Changpeng Zhao (CZ) has already threatened to delist the coin, should Wright not drop the Satoshi charade.

However, there appears to have been no change in the overall sentiment of Wright and his supporters.

The non-BSV community has largely rallied around the call to delist the coin.

However, dissenting voices are also arising.

While not supporting Wright’s claims or actions, some suggest that delisting Bitcoin SV is not the answer.

Let The Market Speak?

Such an argument instead relies on the community to reject BSV not so much on the basis of moral grounds but through the free market. If the coin is what most think it is, user numbers will steadily decline and delisting will occur organically.

However, if the charges are untrue and BSV has real value, no amount of public ire against Wright will ultimately achieve its ends. Instead, the free market will ultimately drive users back to the coin — whether delisted or not.

Do you think Bitcoin SV (BSV) should be delisted, or should the community allow the market to judge? Let us know in the comments below!
