Robinhood emailed a statement to all its users stating it has decided to end support for Bitcoin SV (BSV). The trading platform said it made the decision following a periodic review of the cryptocurrencies the platform offers.

Robinhood recommended its customers sell or, if possible, transfer their BSV by the cutoff date of January 25. After the deadline, the trading platform said it would sell any remaining BSV at market value and credit customers’ accounts.
