Bitcoin Cash [BCH]’s recent bullish surge had laid the foundation for the cryptocurrency’s hard fork month, with the November 15 event considered as a landmark for BCH by a lot of enthusiasts and fans.

Speaking to Ran NeuNer, Roger Ver, the Chief Executive Officer of Bitcoin.com and a popular Bitcoin Cash proponent, touched upon the reasons for the conflicts within the blockchain as well as upcoming changes. According to Ver, one side of the argument is led by Jihan Wu while the other side is in the hands of nChain’s Craig Wright and Calvin Ayres.

Ver also stated that there are a few technological disparities between the two parties, with the implementation of the 128 MB blockchain and a few OP codes being the main focus. He stated:

“Most of the arguments on the network are about operation aspects rather than fundamental differences. Apart from the disagreement on the blockchain size implementation, almost everyone agrees that BCH should be used as the world’s currency.”

Neuner also asked Ver about the chance of an agreement between the two hard fork parties to which the Bitcoin.com chief replied that it will be like the “Y2K panic”, where there is a big hype which leads to no major consequences. He even added that there might possibly be another code chain on GitHub which is something that a majority of the cryptocurrency’s user base wants. He emphasized the statement that Bitcoin Cash has to be used as money because of its transaction speed and seamlessness.



Ver went on to say that in terms of the hard fork, he was siding with Jihan Wu, who wants the BCH blockchain to be increased to 128MB in May 2019. He was also candid enough to admit that society needs the financial freedom that Bitcoin Cash provides, claiming it to be “worldwide money”.

The hard fork’s political games have only picked up in November, with major players in the cryptoverse teaming up against Craig Wright. This was evidenced when Jihan Wu, the CEO of Bitmain, stated:

“The whole BCH community is working together to kick Fake Satoshi out. The resistance against cult leader proves the inner strength and sophistication of the BCH ecosystem!”
