Bittrex, the world’s third largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume behind Bitfinex and Bithumb, officially announced that it will not list Bitcoin Gold (BCG) trading upon its hard fork in November.
Bittrex Concerned With the Bitcoin Gold Codebase
On Sunday October 22, the Bittrex team released a statement on Bitcoin Gold and emphasized that the Bittrex development team will not be integrating Bitcoin Gold trading due to its lack of code testing, auditing, and replay protection.
“.At this time, the information and codebase presented by the Bitcoin Gold team is not in a functional state and Bittrex will not commit to opening a Bitcoin Gold trading market. When considering adding tokens to Bittrex exchange we look at the risks involved. Bitcoin Gold does not satisfy our criteria for safety for our users.”
