Cryptocurrency is about creating a better world. At Kraken, we take this mission seriously. Our focus is on delivering the freedom digital currencies offer. Freedom from centralized systems, financial freedom and critically, freedom from oppression. Our vision of the future doesn’t work unless it works…
RT @krakenfx: Bitcoin SV (BSV) deposits are now disabled. Deposits currently pending will be credited shortly. If you send funds in now, you may not be credited until after trading is disabled on April 29th. Please withdraw all BSV by May 31st, 2019. https://t.co/ejPSSJfhjb
Looking for a short term pop in $BCH now.
Even if that happens I think the safer play is waiting for a clear break of daily resistance around .065. That would give me nice conviction that it can make a good sized swing higher. Until then price is at resistance. https://t.co/gCaGSsacPE
Never-mind what you think about the coin. If people lose them after the 30th of April, that is completely unacceptable. I think this is one of the many reasons that this space doesn't look professional. How often have you heard about banks/brokers saying: "Oh yeah you had British pounds by us but we decided on no longer dealing with them and since you didn't react within 2 weeks we get to keep them."
SimpleSwap supports Bitcoin SV for exchanges in the normal mode. Primarily, SimpleSwap is created for the convenience of customers. We see that there is still a need to make BSV exchanges. If we delist BSV, we will let our customers down. Our service can not allow this!
When I chose an exchange some years ago, I considered two variables:
Never ever make business with anything that gets you involved with the US IRS (if you are not already in their grasp)! Avoid all US based exchanges like plague. You do NOT want to mess with the IRS, if you live outside the US.
Try to find an exchange that has both expertise in the area AND a moral sense.
I'm a happy client to Kraken and their decision to delist Craig Wright seems good to me.
As I understand it, BTC-SV still has no replay protection. Its developers said they would provide it but I don't believe they have yet. If so, lack of replay protection strikes me as a technically sound reason to delist or not list in the first place.
"If you see fraud and do not say fraud, you are a fraud."
I believe and practice this philosophy in my life. It can create friction at times but I see it as a responsibility of all of society to behave this way in order to root out malfeasence.
All exchanges should practice this. This is good self-regulation. Fuck the market, the market is filled with morons who buy/endorse/scam shitcoins. If we know beyond a reasonable doubt that something absolutely is a scam, then it is our responsibility as a society to self-regulate. Those who disagree like to do so by covering up their ideologies with rosy sounding ideological philosophy, but ultimately this comes down to "lack of empathy" which is pretty much the only proper definition for "evil".
oh man. was a close call for me. I saw yesterday that they were thinking about it after binance delisted it. and literally stopped working to make a kraken account and sell it before I would be screwed. this is ultimately a good thing though
**Kraken is not bankrupt and we did not stop all withdrawals.** There was a known (temporary) issue with our funding services.
**Our engineers have now resolved the issue.**
We continue to monitor performance closely and will provide an update [here](https://status.kraken.com/) if anything changes.
Your unstable software is not your biggest problem.

Binance has decided to delist BSV, also Shapeshift has decided the same. Although, Kraken was considering about it. But in an official press release, Kraken said that BSV had “engaged in behavior completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for", which eventually led to delisting of the cryptocurrency.
