The company’s CEO cites three issues with the asset

In his update on Twitter, Youseff buttressed three points as the reason why the second digital asset was booted off the exchange. However, the CEO also claimed that the main reason the decision was taken was that the platform promises to maintain integrity. He also claimed that the platform is also trying to fight economic differences that has been a thing worldwide.

Youseff claims that this issue was first started by the several systems operating worldwide. He also said he is rooting for Bitcoin to free that held hostage by the system. The CEO mentioned that the switch earlier in the year was the first trigger that pushed for the decision. Finally, he claimed that using a PoW system means that the money is made honestly, while a PoS is like another digital fiat money.

Paxful CEO also mentioned that the lack of decentralization on the part of the digital asset was another driver. Youseff claims that the recent tokenization could create a field for scams and fraud to thrive across the crypto space. He mentioned that most tokens that have been respawned on Ethereum had been scams, resulting in people losing their hard-earned funds. Youseff also said that Ethereum has been able to undo the hard work that Bitcoin had done over the years by stealing away some of its momentum.

The Paxful boss has been a voice for Bitcoin over the last few years. After FTX saga, he has also called on traders to explore several self-custody methods of safekeeping their digital assets. Paxful also echoed the same sentiment shared by its CEO after its announcement regarding the issue with FTX.
