While BSV delisting FUD continues on social media with hashtag ‘DelistBSV’, a Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange, OKEx is reportedly launching BSV based exchange.
OKEx To Launch BSV-Centric Exchange
Announced on April 11, 2019, by Jack C. Liu who is the founder of RelayX, a crypto-based startup. Liu claims himself as the current advisor of OK Group, the parent company of OKEx exchange and notes that he has partnered with OKEx to launch new BSV-centric exchange called Float SV. The blog reads that the new Float SV is built on top of ‘OKNodes Program’, a technology of OKEx trading platform.
Although the launch announcement of new exchange in association with OKEx crypto exchange looks pretty cool, it didn’t receive a positive welcome from the crypto community.
BSV Delisting Campaign on Rise
The report comes in a wake of increasing controversies around Dr. Craig Wright, head of Bitcoin SV or BSV cryptocurrency who self-define himself as Satoshi Nakamoto. Following Craig’s consistent emphasis on accepting him as Satoshi Nakamoto has become the hot topic these days – which urged famous crypto figures including Binance’s CZ, Bitmain’s Jihan Wu, TRON’s Justin Sun, Morgan Creek Digital’s Anthony Pompliano and many others to disagree and response with aggression.
As such, Binance CZ warns that Binance will delist BSV if such ‘shit’ continues’.
As such, Anthony Pompliano who counts among the leading figures of the Crypto industry took to Twitter and aggressively begin #DelistBSV campaign. With this, he asked exchanges to delist BSV on May 1st. The tweet gathered the attention of Twitterati and at present, it shows 1.5k retweets and 5.3 likes with people continuously commenting and tweeting about Bitcoin SV as well as Craig Wright with #DelistBSV hashtag.
Pomp said in a tweet;
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

Coming back to OKEx’s BSV-Centric exchange Float, it will reportedly ‘share liquidity, user pool and technical infrastructure with OKEx’. Float SV founder, Jack C.Liu addressing the aspects that he learned from Star Xu, Founder, and CEO, OK Group says that;
It is great to be back leveraging OK’s trusted and scalable exchange infrastructure with which I am very familiar with. Float SV can count on OK’s track record of being a neutral technology platform.
