US judge rules Coinbase must face negligence lawsuit over B-Cash launch

posted 11 days ago
Coinbase must face a negligence lawsuit for allegedly botching the launch of the digital currency bitcoin cash, (BCH), through apparent “incompetence born of haste,” a judge ruled.

US District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco ruled buyers of bitcoin cash -- not sellers -- can move forward with the suit. The judge ruled the complaint lays out a “plausible account that Coinbase breached its duty to maintain a functional market.”
