Bitcoin.com – the source of news about cryptocurrency, mining and wallets – is not for sale, according to the founder and owner of the site, Roger Ver.
On Monday, Bitcoin.com became a “premium domain” available from GoDaddy, the world’s largest domain registrar, for at least $ 100 million.

Ver contacted GoDaddy on Twitter and demanded that the list be removed immediately, saying:
“Remove this fake news that harms my true brand.”

Ver, who has been an avid cryptocurrency investor since early 2011, assured Cointelegraph that the domain list is “fake news, perhaps even just another example of a dirty attack on BCH by BTC extremists. Bitcoin. “.Com spam that continues to this day.”
BCH stands for the Bitcoin Cash ticker symbol, a fork of Bitcoin that users believe exactly matches the origin suggested in Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper. Bitcoin Cash rose 11.3% to $ 624 on Monday, according to CoinGecko.
At the time of writing, it looks like GoDaddy has completely removed the list, although no further explanation has been provided.
