Bitcoin.org’s Cobra Compares BCH to Heroin and BSV to Fentanyl..Making BTC Like Cannabis?
If you’ve always wondered how addictive Heroin, a popular recreational opioid, is, then the founder of possibly the two greatest websites in the crypto world has you covered. Cobra, a pseudonym representing the founder of the two sites, has allegedly equated Bitcoin Cash to heroin.
Bitcoin Cash is like Heroin. The more you use it the more dependent you become on it. Those low fees and quick confirmations feel like magic and you experience amazing highs. Then someone introduces you to Bitcoin SV, which is akin to Fentanyl, and you die.

A Genuine Change Of Heart?
It’s not a secret that the notorious Bitcoin Cash mogul has surprisingly backed up the likelihood of the 5th largest coin to keep growing. Previously, his opposition to the highly potential coin had been expressed in various attacks, most notably the one that he declared it dead.
He had said BCH would be worth $0 in the future, the reason for his resentment being what he termed as “lack of [proper] leadership and a well-thought-out direction. Yet, against all odds, the mystery man seems to have switched positions.
To him, the “low fees” coupled with the swift rate of confirmations was the greatest selling points of the cryptocurrency. The tweet directly compared the two, going further to even state that with repeated use, one would gradually depend on it.
According to a tweet posted by the anonymous crypto enthusiast, the addictive nature of BCH could only be likened to one of the highly sought-after drugs. However, the sublime mention of Bitcoin SV, also comparing it with Fentanyl, drove the point home!
Fentanyl is another type of Heroin, which, according to Cobra, is sure to induce just about the same addiction as BCH. Bitcoin SV is just about three months old, yet the ascent of this nChain-backed coin to the 10th spot is spectacular.
Could He Have Changed His Stance After The Spat With BCH’s Roger Ver?
Cobra had previously loathed Bitcoin Cash with passion. In fact, his tweet, posted a couple of days after the New Year’s Day perfectly captured that. He had declared it dead due to what he says was lack of a formidable team in its leadership plus loss of purpose – two factors that he predicted would drive its value to $0.
He later threw shade at Roger Ver, the vocal supporter of BCH. Ver who owns Bitcoin.com had made a sensational claim, saying that Bitcoin Cash in 2019 would hit the heights that were originally meant for Bitcoin.
The sentiments rubbed Cobra the wrong way, forcing him to come out guns blazing. He disputed the claims, consequently saying that the project’s initial whitepaper was destined for .org instead of Ver’s .com.
However, His Latest Sentiments Have Not Augured Well With His Battalion
Most of his followers have expressed their displeasure, some even saying he has brazenly ‘changed his skin.’ Others urged Cobra to reconsider his sentiments and avoid both cryptocurrencies forthrightly.
However, there were those who sided with the veiled Bitcoin.org co-founder as the other trolled. It remains to be seen what his responses about the same would be.
