Although the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hardfork hash war isn't officially over, Huobi has called it for the apparent victors, BCH ABC. The leading exchange will be listing the ABC chain as the official BCH token.
The official statement about Huobi's decision says that Bitcoin Cash's ABC fork will retain the BCH designation, while the SV chain will be listed with the symbol BSV. Deposits will open on November 19 for both tokens, and BCH tokens will be redistributed 1:1 to holders of BSV. Observers were mostly supportive of the decision, although some pointed out that Roger Ver's project doesn't have much more credibility than that of Craig S. Wright.

This time the good guys won. Kudos to @rogerkver and all the people of the REAL Bitcoin Cash community for winning.
Now let's get back on track bringing economic freedom to the entire World!
Pretty terrible of huobi to pick a side in a battle between scammers. Thanks for letting us know which idiots you guys are in bed with.— Jimmy Pistachio (@poopert_tweets) November 18, 2018
Kraken was the first major exchange to take a stand on the chain split. It officially declared that it would be supporting BCH ABC as the official BCH token before the hardfork and hash war even went ahead.
Meanwhile, Binance will be remaining relatively neutral on the future of Bitcoin Cash. CEO CZ has made some relatively dismissive comments about hardforks on his Twitter, and the exchange has taken the step of supporting both the BCH ABC and BCH SV chains without declaring either to be the 'real' Bitcoin Cash. The tokens will be listed as BCHABC and BCHSV.
