After the attack, the exchange has compensated its customers a portion of the lost funds, and then demanded from the developers of the Bitcoin Gold to pay them 12 372 BTG ($265 000) to cover the loss. The developers have not fulfilled the requirement of the exchange, then Bittrex has reduced the required amount to 6000 BTG.
However, this time the team Bitcoin Gold refused to pay, explaining that their organization is not commercial, and all the profit goes to the miners. The result Bittrex has decided to remove from listing the coin.
However, the team Bitcoin Gold is not much upset of this event. According to them, the Playground was not for coins an important source of liquidity and delisting will have no effect on the coin.
