Bitcoin Cash ABC has now gained the BCH ticker on most major exchanges, including Coinbase, and was even added as the fifth digital asset available on the Gemini platform with USD, BTC, ETH, LTC and ZEC pairs.
Notably, both Coinbase and Gemini have been hesitant to list BSV, citing concerns over the safety of investor funds. However, OKEx does not share this sentiment and trading services of both BCH and BSV are expected to resume on Dec 13 at 07:00 (UTC +1).
Interestingly, Bitcoin Cash was briefly passed by Bitcoin SV in market cap last week, leaving the “winner” of the fork very much in question. Over that period, BSV also saw significantly higher trading volume but has since fallen below BCH.
While gaining the BCH ticker is a clear win for the ABC community, the damage to the Bitcoin Cash brand from the recent fork could ultimately prove to be the lasting outcome.
