Roger Ver, the CEO of Bitcoin.com more commonly known as the Bitcoin Jesus and a massive supporter of Bitcoin and Bitcoin cash spoke about Bitcoin Cash hard fork and the mainstream cryptocurrency adoption that is in play in the recent times.
Ver agreed that the slump in Bitcoin’s prices and the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem was due to the hard fork that happened on Bitcoin Cash which split into two entities, one, the Bitcoin ABC implementation backed by Roger Ver and Jihan Wu, and the SV implementation backed by Craig S. Wright and Calvin Ayre.
Bitcoin Jesus said that people need to stop speculating and build an economy where cryptocurrencies are “actually” currencies. He continued saying that this was the actual goal of Satoshi Nakamoto in his white paper “A peer to peer cash electronic cash system” right from the start. He stated that even though he wasn’t a big fan of taxes he acknowledged the adoption of Bitcoin as a payment method for paying taxes. He added:
“That’s the goal with the Bitcoin cash both the ABC camp and SV camp and I wish every cryptocurrency good luck if they’re trying to bring more economic freedoms the world by making them useful as currencies for the world. So I wish everybody good luck.”
Referring to the hard fork, and how it cost the whole ecosystem millions, if not billions Ver directed toward the Bitcoin Whitepaper and how Nakamoto opined that hard forks would be good a way to proceed if there were conflicting ideas.
Furthermore, Roger Ver said:
“I think we need to build the tools to make it easy for people to use cryptocurrencies as money, to buy and sell things and pay their bills and pay their rent and like even pay their taxes. We just heard about the state of Ohio accepting Bitcoin cash and Bitcoin through bit pay for taxes. And that’s a pretty big step towards mainstream adoption.”
Ver even substantiated his Bitcoin adoption statement and mentioned a few restaurants in Japan that accepted both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
A Twitter user A.Mashreghi commented:
“Yeah, I would’ve said the same with those heavy s***coin bags. The truth is, Roger intentionally has caused the biggest damage to investor in crypto by causing chaos , confusion & division. In the process his first causality was his own b-cash. Well know he knows, Karma is BCH.”
