[Grand Theft Bitcoin: Scam City] Craig Wright Attacks Jihan Wu and Roger Ver Amid BCH Hard Fork
The Bitcoin Cash community seems very divided just days ahead of the network upgrade that the network has scheduled. Craig Wright, the promoter of the Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision) is attacking those that support the Bitcoin ABC client, including Roger Ver and Jihan Wu.
Craig Wright appeared a few days ago, in a video that was hosted by Tone Vays, a Bitcoin supporter. He talked about the upcoming hard fork and the proposals that want to succeed.
Wright started talking about his relationship with Jihan Wu, Bitmain’s co-founder. Bitmain is one of the most important crypto-related companies in the world and the largest producer of ASIC miners for virtual currencies. Wright explained that he was never in good terms with Jihan Wu.
He then said that they had a plan to try to scale Bitcoin but Jihan did not want to accept it.

About it, Wright said:
“Unfortunately we actually communicated all this to Jihan, thinking that he was supportive and wanted to scale and we found that Jihan, at that time, undermined all of this. He didn’t want a fork, he wanted the split. So, part of what happened a year ago with the BTC – BCH split was, Jihan actually needs a form of Segwit and malleability fix that allows for ASIC boost.”
Moreover, Craig Wright explained that in this way, Jihan could have a proof of stake (PoS) coin, run plasma and bring Ethereum Version 2. Wright said that Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s founder and Joseph Poon, a developer behind the Lightning Network (LN).
During the video, he has also accused the so-called ‘Bitcoin Jesus’ of using the Bitcoin Cash blockchain for gambling and ‘child porn.’
Wright said that Bitcoin was designed to work within the law rather than being an anarchist coin. He explained that Bitcoin is not going to break laws or do anything other than what money does. He went on saying that Bitcoin does not take down governments that people vote and that Bitcoin should be used in every single local store to pay for things as money currently works.
In just a few days, on November 15, Bitcoin Cash will experience a hard fork. Craig Wright supports the Bitcoin SV proposal while Jihan Wu and Roger Ver are working in order to support the Bitcoin ABC client.
