A Chinese bitcoin investor sued OKCoin, a local cryptocurrency exchange for not letting him get Bitcoin Cash post-Bitcoin Fork, according to the local news agency, Weekly Cool. This should be the first legal action in China in which bitcoin’s last year’s fork was involved.
Investors, under the pseudonym Feng Bin sued OKCoin, accusing the exchange for barring him from receiving 38,748 BCH, which was due he had to get along the hard fork in August 2017.
Feng Bin process said that he tried to sell Bitcoin Cash when the digital currency reached a record level to $4,000 in December 2017. However, when an investor attempted to pull out the BCH post the fork, he reported that the button to extract was no longer present on the platform.
On the allegations and complaint filed on customer support platform, OKCoin said, “Feng Bin failed to extract Bitcoin Cash term owing to the expiration of forked crypto claiming.”
Investor, in response to the same, stated that the platform never made an official announcement of the deadline for submitting an application for Bitcoin Cash.
“I checked all the announcement of the launches of OKCoin currency, and in all announcement, there is no point related to the deadline to receive the statement and removal of the program.”
OKCoin, allegedly questioned Feng Bin’s claim, referring to the discrepancy between his allegations and the report of his accounts.
Bitcoin Cash has been the subject of a number of disputes for a year. One of the key promoters of a BCH, Roger Ver said, “Bitcoin Cash is an actual Bitcoin, in November 2017. Ver also said that Bitcoin Cash, in future, will have a large trading volume, market capitalization, and user base.”
And if this projection is practically believed than it might have a historic impact on the global cryptocurrency market.
