Bitcoin SV [BSV]'s Calvin Ayre fires back again after John McAfee's unsolicited advice

Calvin Ayre, the Bitcoin SV [BSV] spearhead, did not back down following the uproar that followed his tweets last week. He has defended his pictures of “young” women dancing, and pushed back against his critics, labeling them “anti-scaling trolls,” including the crypto-stalwart, John McAfee.

On March 12, the Founder of the Ayre group posted pictures and a video on Twitter, depicting the “Cuban national twerking team,” and was met by vocal backlash. Many top influencers within the cryptospace called the BSV leader an opponent of decentralized currency for his antics.

Among his opposers was John McAfee, the crypto-enthusiast and US Presidential hopeful, who tried to convince Ayre to “pause for a moment and look at your reality.” Ayre did not take McAfee’s advice, instead accusing him of murder, referencing the 2012 death of Gregory Faull.

Not backing down from his claim, Ayre continued his attack on McAfee, tweeting,

John McAfee however, calling the allegation “fucking nonsense.” Deflecting the attack, McAfee replied that controversies were common to everyone, but the main focus should be escaping the shackles of government tyranny. He then spoke directly to Ayre asking him to take note of his actions.

To McAfee’s second round of advice, Ayre responded, “f*ck you.” McAfee was not offended however, instead giving a “bi-curious” invitation to Ayre’s request.

Meanwhile, Ayre maintained that he had not entertained “minor girls,” as many accused him of. With the upcoming CoinGeek conference scheduled for May 2019, Ayre would not want unnecessary controversies taking center stage. In light of the same he tweeted,

Ayre further added that the “anti scaling trolls” were ignoring the debate around Bitcoin SV’s “superior” technology, by bringing up the issue of the “twerking” women. He added that the crypto-community should not be sidetracked by “twerkflufflegate,” and that scaling should be looked at first.

He also accused his opposers of trying to “censor” the conference by “rabidly” attacking him over his pictures and video. Ayre added that legal action was imminent, and his lawyers were looking into the matter.

Finally, Ayre uploaded pictures of the girls in question, claiming that they were all over the age of 18. He added that the girls were facing severe harassment since the pictures were uploaded, and they requested the community to “please stop the harassment.”

In a note to AMBCrypto, McAfee maintained his advisory position, requesting the latter to “Think before acting,” as “Our actions impact everyone.”



On asked if Ayre, the gambling mogul, viewed the cryptospace through the myopic lens of a get rich quick scheme, McAfee maintained his distance, but hinted that there may be some truth to those claims.

He stated,

“I do not know him well enough to judge, hiwever (however), gambling is his claim to fame and gambling is certainly a get rich quick scheme.”

Bitcoin [BTC] surges above $5,500 and breaks major resistance level; collective market rises

Bitcoin [BTC] surges above $5,500 breaking major resistance level; collective market surges

Bitcoin [BTC] broke out of its sideways trend that saw coins fall after a brilliant start to April. This “break-out” is especially significant since it came days after the coin was trading sluggishly, pulling the market cap below $175 billion.

After breaking the $5,200 level on April 16, the coin held steady, showing no noticeable dips. However, it also began losing the momentum it had gained when it rose by 15 percent on April 2. Many saw the past week as Bitcoin losing steam, opining that a drop to as low as $4,000 would manifest. This pessimism coupled with the delisting dilemma saw the global market decline by 3.31 percent over the past weekend.

Given this backdrop, the present Bitcoin price incline was even more bullish for the collective market. Further, this was not just an effort to shrug off “sideways bears,” but instead, two key levels were broken in order to usher a collective market rise and sustain BTC bullishness.

RESISTANCE

The first, as indicated by eToro’s senior market analyst Mati Greenspan, was the resistance level of $5,350. When Bitcoin began to consolidate following the early April high, Greenspan stated that if the BTC price were to punch above the aforementioned level, it “would likely serve as confirmation that we’re pushing higher and will lead to further buying pressure.”

Greenspan stated that the $5,350 level acted as a major support level throughout 2018. Hence, it is incredibly important that Bitcoin surge above it in the next rise to consolidate buying pressure. Another important point to signal the coming of a bullish market was the 200-day moving average which Bitcoin has stayed above since the April 2 rally.

PSYCHOLOGY

The other significant level for the collective market is Bitcoin’s ascendance over $5,500, which it managed courtesy of this rally. Many, including Greenspan, pegged $5,000 as a key psychological level for the coin and hence, the rise above $5,500 less than three weeks after $5,000 was broken will bring back optimism to the BTC market.



Further, as was seen in the April 2 rise, the Bitcoin pump resulted in the king coin increasing its market dominance. At the close of March, Bitcoin was edging closer to losing the majority. However, the rally saw its share increase to 52.4 percent within a day. Following this recent 4.61 percent increase against the US Dollar, the king coin’s dominance increased to 53.2 percent.

Given the elasticity of the collective market to changes in Bitcoin’s price, the market was awash in green as Bitcoin broke the resistance and psychological levels. Amid this bullish charge, some coins stood out for their above-average gains, which included Bitcoin Cash [BCH], Cardano [ADA], EOS [EOS], Litecoin [LTC], and the exchange-ousted Bitcoin SV [BSV].
