CryptoCurrency : Bitcoin.com removing providers that do not support BCH


Here at [bity.com](https://bity.com) , this is what we receive from [bitcoin.com](https://bitcoin.com)

>Hello,
>
>I am reaching out to you directly in regards to your exchange listing on our website [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com). At this time, we currently have you listed on our exchanges page here: [Bitcoin.com/buy-bitcoin](https://Bitcoin.com/buy-bitcoin)
>
>I am writing to let you know we have noted at this time your exchange currently does not offer Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and only offers customers the option to buy Bitcoin Core (BTC). We are making a change on our exchange listing requirements that all listed exchanges must offer Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in order to remain listed on our website. We wanted to reach out to you and let you know this so that you can start to offer Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to your customers.
>
>For exchanges that we currently list who do not meet this requirement, they will be removed from the exchange listings page and won’t be offered as an option moving forward unless this requirement is met. If we don’t see any changes that reflect the addition of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on your exchange within the next 30 days then your listing will be removed from [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com).
>
>Please note that [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com) is one of the top most viewed websites in the cryptocurrency space with millions of views per month. You can see some of our statistics here: [Bitcoin.com/advertise](https://Bitcoin.com/advertise)
>
>If you have any questions or need more information, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly. I will be happy to assist.
>
>Best regards,

This is our answer to them:

>Bity was notified on 12th July 2018 by [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com) that if we do not offer Bitcoin Cash (BCH) for sale on our platform then we would be removed from their exchange listings page.
>
> As a response to this request, we believe we owe an explanation to our users and the broader community about why we do not currently offer, and have no immediate plans to offer, BCH on our cryptocurrency brokerage platform.
>
>We are a Swiss cryptocurrency services provider in addition to providing brokerage services. In Switzerland there is currently no economy that we are aware of which uses BCH. There are no cases of businesses being built around the direct use of BCH, unlike with Ethereum (ETH) or Bitcoin (BTC). There are also no salaries being paid in BCH, or companies being created to service the BCH community.
>
>Bity, as a regulated financial intermediary, currently focuses on cryptocurrencies with an actual or potential strong economy behind them. We have not seen any real use cases in Switzerland or with our user base of BCH that shows potential to be integrated in the future financial system.
>
>We acknowledge [Bitcoin.com](https://Bitcoin.com)’s new exchange listing requirements and we accept that [Bity.com](https://Bity.com) will be removed from this list as we will not be offering BCH in the near future.
>
>We would also like to share that we are crypto agnostic and we understand that things can change in the future. If we see a change in market behaviour towards BCH then we would reconsider offering it on our platform.
>
>Thank you for your kind attention.
