In the BCH Hard Fork Crypto Weeds: Jihan Wu Suspects Craig Wright is a Blockstream Spy


Jihan Wu, one of the co-founders of Bitmain, now says that Craig Wright is a Blockstream spy. He said this in a translated tweet made in Chinese.

“I have long suspected that CSW was a spy sent by Blockstream, especially destroying the reputation of those hostile to them in community and various celebrities. Of course, there is no basis for these suspicions,” the translated tweet statement read.

Currently, there’s a lot of tension in Bitcoin Cash because of the looming chain-split as BitcoinSV, nChain’s new client, launched. A code intended to address technical limits in order to enable the client to handle 128MB blocks without much difficulty didn’t work out. They were disappointed to realize that the client still has a limit of 32MB.

The only change effected on BitcoinSV is removal of replay protection, which simply means that BCH transactions can be done again in BSV. After the fork, one will be able to send Bitcoin Cash to a BCH address, and then transfer the coins again to a BSV address. This beneficial at individual level, but could be catastrophic for exchanges, because they have to list BSV.

New Coder to Work on “Removing the replay protection”

Dan Connolly, the one coder hired, said that the release of BitcoinSV was rushed in order to meet deadlines following grace concerns expressed by users. He further states that in his to-do list is try to remove the replay protection properly.

However, some BSV supporters are not contended with explanation given, claiming that increasing the limit to the intended 128MB was just a simple configure-file change. Some are also worried that the rushed BSV launch could lead to damage as any bug could be exploited.

“I will not support nChain in any way for as long as they are behaving like stupid, short-sighted children,” a respected miner-developer and a BTC supporter Jonathan Toomim said.

But according to Craig Wright, damage is not imminent because there could be peer review BU style. He gave an example, stating that they will kill small hash exchanges, and the node will be able to identify the chain that’s compatible with BitcoinABC.
