Blockstream’s Co-Founder Says Bitcoin SV ‘Maybe the Real Fake Bitcoin’ Regarding BCH Fork Split
In a recent Bitcointalk post, Greg Maxwell the co-founder and former CTO of Blockstream, confirmed an email published by CoinGeek, in which he was believed to have written to Dr. Craig Wright, saying that Bitcoin SV may be the real bitcoin.
Addressing the matter on Bitcointalk, Maxwell said that:
“lol what. Craig Wright and Roger Ver are both conmen. Coingeek is a conman shilling platform, and their claim that [I have] ‘come to the realization that Bitcoin SV is the real Bitcoin,’ is malicious whole cloth fabrication. Now, Is ‘Bitcoin SV’ the real fake bitcoin (bch)? Maybe but who cares.
Maxwell also went ahead to bash Craig Wright, calling him a ‘scammer’. The post further stated that:
I think it’s unfortunate that Wright’s over the top mania is causing dissension in his bamboozled army, as having a scam run by an obvious scammer is a win-win… but it seems that there is nothing to be done for it now, the psychosis is just too strong now.”
CoinGeek had published a section of an email that is said to have been written by Greg Maxwell to Craig Wright, which portrayed that he may have had a change of heart about Bitcoin SV to an extent of offering to lend a hand in its development. Part of the email read:
“I believe it would be adverse for interests that concern me if your influence or prominence in BCH were in any way diminished. I am not aware of how I could be of aid in repairing this situation, but it seemed to me that it would be prudent to at least offer my discreet assistance.”
