Bitcoin Cash [BCH] has had a tumultuous time over the past few weeks from sliding on the price charts to become one of the biggest gainers right now. BCH’s biggest proponent has been Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver, who has advocated for the cryptocurrency since its inception in 2017.

In a recent interview with Dash’s Joel Valenzuela, Ver touched upon the situation of the bear market and the reasons for the Bitcoin Cash hash war that took place last November. The CEO agreed that 2018 was a big downer and that in some way, the developments had contributed to some success.

He said that it is somewhere in the middle of success and failure but in the end, the price of cryptocurrencies is not the perfect metric to gauge a coin. In his words:



“The price is the least interesting thing about cryptocurrencies, we need to look at what the digital currency actually does instead. If a coin or a network can bring economic freedom for all, then we will be able to say that the field is a success. Last year, the hype of 2017 died down but that is a pattern seen before and will be seen again in the future too.”

The discussion then moved onto the effects of the bear market and pointed out the massive layoffs that occurred in Shapeshift. Ver admitted that the current market behavior had made Bitcoin.com rethink the hiring situation too because budgeting for the future is important. He mentioned that his organization is not a group filled with Bitcoin Cash maximalists but rather will choose anything that will help make payments faster and simpler. Ver added:

“ We like anything that works. BTC just stopped and clearly it was time for other cryptocurrencies to step up. In a way the communities of Dash and BCH are almost similar in the way that both believe in a fully functional payment system that is fast and trustworthy.”

Ver further commented on the famous hash war and said that there was a stark clash in ideologies and many in the community did not like the roadmap put forth by Satoshi Vision and nChain. The CEO was frank in admitting that the animosity between the two will not be reconciled anytime soon.
