Roger Ver, a famous Bitcoin (BTC) investor and CEO of Bitcoin.com demanded that GoDaddy remove Bitcoin.com from its sales listing. A few hours later, it appears to have already been cleared.
On Monday, Bitcoin.com appeared as a “premium domain” available for purchase on GoDaddy, the world’s largest domain registrar, for a minimum price of $100 million.
Ver contacted GoDaddy on Twitter and demanded that the listing be removed immediately, stating:
“Please remove this fake news that is damaging my real brand.”
Ver, who has been an avid cryptocurrency investor since early 2011, also confirmed that the domain listing is “fake news, and perhaps even just another example of a dirty attack on BCH by BTC maximalists. Just like the time they flooded every Bitcoin.com email address with spam that has been going on to this very day.”
BCH is the ticker symbol for Bitcoin Cash — a fork of Bitcoin that its users consider more closely aligns with the asset envisioned in Satoshi Nakamoto’s original white paper. Bitcoin Cash was up 11.3% on Monday to trade at $624, according to CoinGecko.
GoDaddy appears to have removed the listing entirely at the time of writing, though the said firm provided no further explanation.
