BTC Developer Luke-jr Attempts to Call out BCH’s Roger Ver, But Ends up Making a Fool of Himself
Last week, Bitcoin Core developer Luke-jr embarrassed himself massively on Twitter. The incident started when a user whose handle is @TheCoinDad asked Luke why his name was displayed during a Roger Ver presentation at the World Digital Mining Summit (WDMS).
Specifically, the slide that the user alluded to in his tweet quoted Luke saying that it would be impossible to keep the fees low. Interestingly, this quote has been used severally during Roger Ver’s presentations.
In response to the tweet mentioned above, Luke-jr went on a full ranting mode, claiming that Roger Ver is a notorious scammer with a history of falsifying quotes. He added that he has previously experienced such scenarios where others put words into his mouth. As expected, Luke’s supporters concurred with his sentiments.
However, some Twitter users took it upon themselves to do further research, unearthing what would be an embarrassing discovery, especially for Luke-jr. In a post he made on Reddit last year, Luke said the exact words that were projected onto Roger’s screen during his presentation at the WDMS.
Notably, that particular quote was word to word and taken in context. Once the evidence was uncovered, Luke hurriedly deleted the tweet where he labeled Roger as a scammer and a fabricator. Surprisingly, he did not apologize to Roger Ver. Nonetheless, there is little Luke can do to reinstate his reputation since the internet records all incidences for posterity, just like the blockchain.
