Kraken Lists Cosmos (ATOM) Following BSV Controversy

US-based cryptocurrency exchange Kraken has made the decision to begin offering support for Cosmos (ATOM), a Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency based on the Tendermint consensus protocol. Trading will begin today, April 22nd, and will be offered in five pairs: ATOM/USD, ATOM/EUR, ATOM/CAD, ATOM/BTC, and ATOM/ETH.

It seemed that the fact that Wright’s proclamations were not taken very seriously by most people in the cryptosphere really started to get under his skin last week because he made the decision to begin taking legal action against individuals who denied that he is Satoshi.

As a result of the legal actions and threats that Wright has made, several cryptocurrency exchanges de-listed BSV, including Kraken. Kraken also took a Twitter poll that found that users think BSV is ‘toxic,’ although it’s not clear what that means on a practical level. The de-listings caused a major price crash for BSV.
