Stocks discussed: (TYO:4755) (TYO:8473)
The majority of the top 100 coins listed by market cap are in the green at press time, according to data from CoinMarketCap. Bitcoin (BTC) leads, as usual, with a $92 billion USD market cap and a trading price of about $5220. And ranking second and third are Ether (ETH) and XRP, with market caps of $17.5 billion and $13.9 billion, respectively.
Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten (TYO:4755) has announced that account registrations are now open for its new cryptocurrency exchange service, Rakuten Wallet. The service is currently available to customers who already have an account with Rakuten Bank. An excerpt from the press release describes an AI-powered customer support service and an upcoming mobile app for Rakuten Wallet:
"In addition, we have enhanced support for customers by introducing an automatic response chat service that employs AI technology that responds to customer inquiries 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, we plan to provide a smartphone app so that you can deposit and withdraw from the crypto asset trading account and trade in crypto assets (virtual currency) regardless of location."
U.S. crypto exchange Kraken has decided to follow Binance and ShapeShift in delisting Bitcoin SV (BSV). The decision was made following a Twitter poll, in which 71 percent of respondents voted "Yes" on the question: "Should Kraken delist Bitcoin SV (BSV)?"
Over the last few months, the team behind Bitcoin SV have engaged in behaviour completely antithetical to everything we at Kraken and the wider crypto community stands for. It started with fraudulent claims, escalating to threats and legal action, with the BSV team suing a number of people speaking out against them. The threats made last week to individual members of the community were the last straw.
Yoshitaka Kitao, CEO and representative director of SBI Holdings, has previously criticized bitcoin cash's hard fork, which took place in November 2018. As Cointelegraph reported, Kitao apparently has a connection with the BSV founder, with Wright having revealed their close relationship in a tweet in January, demonstrating that he and Kitao spent time together, and claiming that he treats Kitao as "a friend and man I respect a lot."
