CoinMarketCap Quietly Removes BCH-Promoting Bitcoin.com From Its BTC Page


Major Cryptocurrency price tracking site CoinMarketCap (CMC) has removed the website Bitcoin.com from its Bitcoin (BTC) page as of today, May 6. Though there was no official announcement from CMC, the price tracker removed Bitcoin.com as BTC’s secondary website evidently in the wake of recent allegations that Bitcoin.com was misleading customers into buying Bitcoin Cash (BCH) instead of Bitcoin.

According to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, Bitcoin.com still appeared on CMC as Bitcoin’s “Website 2” on May 2.

At press time, CMC refers to Bitcoin.org as the single website listed for Bitcoin.

The crypto wallet and media service Bitcoin.com was started by crypto investor and major BTC-turned-BCH-proponent Roger Ver. After the Bitcoin blockchain was hard-forked to create Bitcoin Cash in August 2017, Bitcoin.com launched a crypto wallet that automatically creates both BTC and BCH accounts, with Bitcoin Cash appearing first as the default option.
