Crypto-crime exchange Binance\u2019s highly public delisting of BSV may have been more performative than constative, at least, if one affiliate marketer\u2019s site is any indication. This past weekend, Veribit CEO Roy Murphy tweeted a curious phenomenon he\u2019d observed on Coincodex, a crypto data site that tracks cryptocurrencies trading across hundreds of exchanges. Among the site\u2019s top tokens by market cap is BSV, which, when one hovers one\u2019s cursor over the \u2018buy\u2019 button, displays the helpful pop-up \u2018Available on Binance.\u2019 https:\/\/twitter.com\/murphsicles\/status\/1444289125067206659 However, a check of Binance.com shows no BSV among the tokens available for trading. So, either the coders at Coincodex goofed or the average Binance customer lacks the secret handshake required to access the hidden wonders of BSV-based trading on the world\u2019s biggest crypto bazaar. Binance famously announced its decision to delist BSV in April 2019, following Binance owner Changpeng \u2018CZ\u2019 Zhao tweeting his annoyance with Craig Stephen Wright over the latter\u2019s audacity in using the courts to protect his legal claim to Bitcoin\u2019s legacy. But CZ has repeatedly demonstrated that (a) his public pronouncements don\u2019t necessarily mirror his private actions, and (b) he\u2019s not averse to doing an about-face when his ass is on the line. Examples of the former include Binance.com\u2019s public assurance that U.S. citizens were no longer welcome at the exchange, a claim that was exposed as beyond hollow this summer. In 2020, Binance was found to have been lying about a similar prohibition on customers from mainland China. Examples of CZ\u2019s ability to make a defensive 180-degree turn include Binance\u2019s recent unveiling of a plan to establish a number of regional headquarters, which followed years of CZ declaring that Binance was effectively a phantom and that whatever safe house he was occupying at the moment was the company\u2019s HQ. That flip-flop was driven by CZ\u2019s growing realization that his casual dismissal of traditional business models and middle-fingering of regulatory obligations wasn\u2019t earning him any favors with authorities who\u2019d never approved Binance operating within their borders. As more and more of these regulators put Binance on notice this summer, CZ could well imagine a future in which clearing customs became a major sweat over the sudden appearance of an Interpol Red Notice. So, getting back to Binance\u2019s \u2018did they or didn\u2019t they\u2019 delisting of BSV\u2026 One can\u2019t help but notice that the clock is rapidly counting down to the Florida court faceoff between Ira Kleiman and Dr. Craig Wright. While that trial doesn\u2019t explicitly hinge on Wright\u2019s identity as Bitcoin white paper author Satoshi Nakamoto, a Kleiman win would all but certify Wright\u2019s claim on Satoshi\u2019s stash of 1.1 million BTC, half of which could then be ordered transferred to Kleiman\u2019s control. Kleiman\u2019s ensuing dump of hundreds of thousands of BTC tokens onto the market could cause the BTC-reliant elements of cryptoville to resemble an anthill that some teenage tyrant just kicked over for sport. Further evidence of Wright\u2019s claim to the Satoshi mantle could also cause a surge in BSV interest by both rank-and-file and institutional investors. So, CZ could just be proactively readying BSV contingency plans to protect Binance\u2019s bottom line. After all, he\u2019s been spouting faux homages to something called \u2018proactive compliance\u2019 for a while now. Only this time his precautions might not just be for show.
