Kraken Going to Delist Bitcoin SV?
Earlier today, Binance had posted a press release which stated that Bitcoin SV no longer meets the standards of the exchange and thus the coin shall be delisted from the platform on 22nd April 2019. This led to a massive crash in the price of BSV which is down by more than 9% in the last 24 hours, while other top cryptocurrencies are showing gains. Just a few hours back, Kraken (cryptocurrency exchange) posted a poll on Twitter asking for the advice of the community for delisting of Bitcoin SV from Kraken. Almost all of the votes are against BSV with people voting for “Yes, it’s toxic”.

Two days back, Anthony Pompliano, the co-founder of Morgan Creek Digital posted a tweet asking all cryptocurrency exchanges to delist BSV on 1st May 2019 in a sign of solidarity behind the only Bitcoin that ever mattered.
Every exchange should delist BSV simultaneously on May 1st in a sign of solidarity behind the only Bitcoin that ever mattered.
This community is the responsibility of the people. Sometimes we must do the hard thing, not because it is easy, but because it is right.#DelistBSV
