Its been days since we first got to know that Poloniex, a popular cryptocurrency exchange, has recently said it will remove DigiByte (DGB) from its platform. It was reported that the exchange responded to a tweet by the founder of DigiByte, Jared Tate who publicly criticized Poloniex and TRON. The latter, the cryptocurrency platform of Justin Sun, is said to have invested in the Poloniex exchange.
Poloniex announced in an official message that DigiByte will soon be removed from the platform. In the message, the exchange announced that it would delist DigiByte because the cryptocurrency did not meet the requirements; which is striking because the message follows after Tate’s statements. For the community the incident is clear and the removal of DigiByte has to do with the statements of Tate.
Days after, I went to the platform and found out that DGB is still trading on the platform. Poloniex is yet to tell us when it will delist DGB but we hope they sort out their differences before it affects the users.
Below is the tweet from Jared Tate
“1/8 Im disgusted by all these #TRON trolls/bots attacking me & hyping a 100% premined & completely centralized network like its the most decentralized gift from god. Now #Poloniex has turned into a $TRX shill factory after making off w/ US customers sensitive data. Fact time:
& doing a survey of existing #blockchain protocols it became painfully clear how much this tech has been perverted & hijacked by extremely misleading platforms like #TRON masquerading under the flag of #decentralization.
sold #Poloniex to Sun.
