Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork sees another spat; Faketoshi sends bitter regards to Roger Ver

On November 8, two proponents of the Bitcoin Cash [BCH] community were found having a serious battle when one of them, Roger Ver, revealed an email that he received from Craig Wright this week. The message was apparently of an unprofessional nature wherein Wright aka Faketoshi displayed much hostility and outrightly bad-mouthed Ver. Some of the content from the email read:

“Bitcoin will die before ABC shits on it. I will see BCH trade at 0 for a few hours. Will you? Side with ABC, you hate Bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have fucking no idea what that means.”

Next, Ver mentioned an email he received from Calvin Ayre, where he described the message as mature and civil. Ayre sent Ver an email at the onset of the November BCH hard fork and asked the CEO to “rejoin the camp that supports economic freedom”. To this, Ver stated:

“Maybe Calvin and I have a little bit of a difference of agreement as to what the best tools are to achieve more freedom for the world but that’s fine you know different people can have different opinions.”

Roger Ver also spoke about the dilemma of splitting the coins. He cited the case of Ethereum and Ethereum Classic and mentioned that not splitting the coins became a problem during the hard fork as the customers of ETH were depositing ETH and receiving mixed coins from the exchanges. He added:

“They say you can’t split the coins at all because people are going to lose coins, but I think they have it backwards and we have the empirical evidence from the last time when Ethereum split into ETH and ETC, a number of exchanges did not implement replay protection and as a result tons and tons of customer money was lost on these exchanges”

Earlier this week, another Bitcoin Cash proponent and CEO of Money Button, Ryan Charles, had opined that the hard fork of the coin does not necessarily need replay protection. A replay attack is is an attack where valid data transmission is repeated or delayed.

Bitcoin Cash would be a perfect global coin for daily spending, claims Chainblock’s Federico Pecoraro

Federico Pecoraro, CEO of Italy-based crypto-company, Chainblock, made waves in the cryptospace after he suggested that Italians were shifting to cryptocurrencies owing to the country’s growing economic problems. The 2008 financial crisis hit the Italian economy badly, largely due to the huge public debt accumulated after years of excessive public spending.

According to Federico Pecoraro, the state of affairs offers an opportunity for many people and businesses to benefit from using decentralized money. In what is the most newsworthy bit of his take, he said that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) could be the cryptocurrency that would fit perfectly as a real global coin for daily spending, despite the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) is more likely to emerge as a better store-of-value. He added,

“We’re proud to support it on our products. Indeed, our clients have the opportunity to buy BCH through any of our services.”

Pecoraro also spoke about how Chainblock used the crypto-winter to develop new products and expand its customer base. He revealed that by the end of 2018, Chainblock recorded a 156% increase in transactions and a 144% increase in new users. Federico Pecoraro told,

“We love small businesses that want to accept crypto payments but we want to enable as many merchants as we can with a strategic market approach. Our goal is to provide affordable and scalable solutions for both big and small shops and spread real cryptocurrency mass adoption. We plan to enable 5,000 merchants to accept Bitcoin payments.”
