By CCN: Ethereum wunderkind Vitalik Buterin maintained his hardline stance on Bitcoin SV in a recent interview, calling Craig Wright’s cryptocurrency a “complete scam.”
Speaking with YouTuber Hardcore Crypto, Buterin left little room for interpretation regarding his thoughts on BSV. The Ethereum co-founder also gave his thoughts on decentralized exchanges and the worryingly centralized accumulation of power by Binance.

Just in case there was any doubt remaining about Buterin’s thoughts on Bitcoin SV, he told Hardcore Crypto:
“Obviously BSV is a complete scam, but the delisting from Binance – that was interesting. There’s arguments in favour of it, but then there’s also an argument that this is a centralized exchange that’s wielding a lot of power.”
Those thoughts regarding Binance’s delisting of Bitcoin SV were echoed in an article of my own from the same time – one which wasn’t received positively by a majority of commenters.
