Bittrex Delists Bitcoin Gold Amid Lack of Compensation Over 51% Attack139.19

Bittrex, one of the planet’s largest cryptocurrency operators, has delisted BTG from its exchange after the Bitcoin Gold Organization declined to pay 12,372 BTG (about $265,000) to remain listed.

The Seattle-based exchange required a compensation from the BTG team for negligence over the 51% attack in May that allowed hackers to steal more than 388,000 BTG. This was approximately $18 million at the time of the hack, from a number of operators, including HitBTC, Bithumb, Binance, Bitinka, Bitfinex, and Bittrex.
