Charlie Taylor

On Friday 01/01, exchange Bittrex announced the removal of several privacy-oriented cryptocurrencies, including Dash. However, according to the profile of @Dashpay and several members of the community, the cryptocurrency should not be listed as private.
“From a technical point of view, Dash's privacy functionality is no greater than that of Bitcoin, making the name“ privacy coin ”a misnomer for Dash.”, Said the official profile of DashPay.

The user Red Pill Finance went straight to the question: "Isn't that a fraud?"
