According to OKCoin CEO, Hong Fang, the exchange is not against hard forks, however, it cannot ignore the malicious misinformation war that is driven by Craig Wright and other members of these communities.
"Should the BSV and BCH communities listen to the broader market and choose to rebrand away from Bitcoin in pursuit of their own path, we would be very happy to revisit our decision and change our stance on these assets," Fang said.
The exchange will suspend all BCH and BSV trading pairs from March 1, 2021. Fang highlights OKCoin feels very disturbed by the copyright claim and "threat of legal actions that Craig Wright is waging against the open-source community."
In February 2020, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao called Craig S Wright, the main supporter of BSV, a "fraud." CZ's response came shortly after CSW recommended Binance users to withdraw assets as soon as possible over risks in hodling assets on the exchange.
