BL3P, a European exchange platform has successfully removed Bitcoin Cash from its platform. On the 15th of May, the removal happened after the announcement of the BCH hard fork.

BL3P exchange platform was established in the Netherlands in 2013. The company has fine relationships with local banks and is the only exchange to be licensed from Dutch Central Bank [DNB]. The exchange charges 0.25% fees for trading.

The company had earlier informed its users that it would be removing BCH from the platform. It was stated that the company maintains a strict protocol for altcoins and Bitcoin Cash has failed to meet the requirements hence they are delisting it. The company will officially stop trading and provide services for BCH from the 15th May.

As the website suggests they had given time for withdrawals till the 14th of May. In the limited time frame, consumers were allowed to transfer the BCH into other wallets. Users were warned and suggested with methods to safely transfer the token but the company makes no recommendations.

As reported earlier by AMBcrypto, the hard-fork for BCH shall take place on the 15th of May 2018. The upgrades will include the increase in block size from 8 to 32 and changes will be made to adopt smart contracts.

BCH is ranked number 4 on CoinMarketCap with a market capitalization worth $24 billion. Currently, at the time of writing, the price is staked at $1,416 with a circulating supply worth $1 billion. Since the whole crypto-market was running bear and the prices had dropped by 11% in the last one-week marker.

In the last 24 hour period, the price has seen no significant fluctuations as it has only increased by 0.5%. On the contrary, in the last 1 hour period, the price has increased by 1.3%.

Pranav, a Twitterati says:

“BCH is going to revolutionize the crypto-industry as it always updates and upgrades it system/network. After the hard-fork also the net value will just increase.”

A Redditor says:

“The price is going to shoot up. Investors get ready the time is ripe where you can make hell lot of money.”

Bitcoin [BTC] has often been reprimanded by the Bitcoin fork coin maximalist due to its scalability, block size, and mining fees, among other things. The debate surrounding the digital coins at the joint edition of CC Forum and Malta AI & Blockchain Summit witnessed an argument between BCH’s Roger Ver and Bitcoin maximalist Tone Vays.

The fork coin enthusiast and the CEO of, Roger Ver, argued that the transaction fee in case of BTC was $3, which made it extremely expensive. However, Tone Vays, a Bitcoin core personality, said that he used the king coin frequently and had never paid more than $1 as fees to settle payments. This led to the CEO asking Vays to pull out his wallet and send him $5 worth of BTC. Subsequently, Ver placed a bet of $10,000 for any charity of Vays’s choice if the latter was able to send $5 with a transaction fee of 5 cents in 24 hours.

Tone made a transaction on-stage and later posted a victory tweet:

Responding to the above tweet, the CEO accused Vays of cheating and losing the bet in a new video. Firstly, Ver noted that the transaction did not clear within the day and added that it took ten hours to get included in the block. Secondly, he explained that Tone’s transaction was the “highest priority” [higher the transaction fee, higher the priority] in the entire ecosystem and was prompted by Slush Pool’s insertion. He said,

“I don’t know if Tone asked Slush, I don’t know if somebody else asked Slush, I don’t know if Slush did on its own. Maybe slush has a transaction accelerator thing where you can pay with a credit card to include your Bitcoin transactions in the block but anyhow Tone is the highest priority transaction in the entire block.”
