Binance and ShapeShift cryptocurrency exchanges announced that they would delist the controversial Bitcoin SV, supported by Craig "False Satoshi" Wright. Other crypto services are likely to follow them and stop supporting Bitcoin SV.

Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, announced that it would Bitcoin SV, which appeared as a result of a hard fork in the Bitcoin Cash network last year. BSV will be delisted on 22 April at 10:00 AM UTC.

Binance explained that it periodically re-evaluates every digital asset traded on the exchange in order to ensure that it meets Binance's high standards and requirements for listed cryptocurrencies. Such standards include the team’s commitment to the project, the level and quality of the project development, network and smart contract stability, level of public communication, responsiveness to our periodic due diligence requests, evidence of unethical or fraudulent conduct, contribution to a healthy and sustainable crypto ecosystem. Binance did not specify what requirements Bitcoin SV does not meet.

The withdrawal of funds in Bitcoin SV will be available to users until 22 July 2019.
