In a recent thread on Bitcointalk for Sprouts, Bittrex was accused of asking for 3 Bitcoin (Approximately $840) to list new coins on their exchange. 247CryptoNews investigated.
After first rejecting our request for an interview, Richie from Bittrex obliged.
The following Question and Answer session ensued:
247CN: “You’ve been accused of asking for 3 BTC in order to be listed on your exchange, what is your official response to this accusation?”
Richie: “Bullshit. We require 10,000 BTC to be listed….why would I ask for 3?”
247CN:“So you are a pay to play exchange?”
Richie: “No. What isn’t explained in this Bitcointalk thread is that I am also a Gigolo.”
247CN:“So it’s 10,000 BTC for a b***?”
Richie: “Yep. How else can I serve a global market?”
There you have it folks. Richie’s handlers ended our interview quickly citing “bronchitis” and an inability to further speak.
