Roger Ver Finally Responds To Friction Within the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Community
Roger Ver, the founder of Bitcoin.com, one of the most popular news channels about Bitcoin in the whole world, has recently spoken in depth on clashes that are happening within the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community and the major challenges that the token might have to face before it succeeds. He also has spoken about criticisms surrounding his team and more.
As you might have heard if you are following the Bitcoin Cash news, there have been a big number of clashes and disagreement among the community members of Bitcoin Cash lately and this has caused a split to be planned for November. During the interview, Roger Ver compared this situation with the past of Bitcoin Core.
Censorship And Bitcoin.com
Ver has spoken about the censorship attacks that members of the Bitcoin Core community have made on Bitcoin Cash. According to him, the solution to the disagreement is to have more speech and not less of it. This approach, he believes, was not followed by the original Bitcoin community.
During the time, Ver reminds, the Bitcoin.com website was constantly attacked even Bitcoin cached nodes were attacked, as well as email boxes of staff attacked by signing them to tens of thousands of email spam addresses. Ver believes that this kind of “trolling” is bad and it is not the way a civil society should deal with problems.
According to the CEO of Bitcoin.com, he would condemn in an open manner any censorship acts created by his community, but he does not believe that many attacks come from there.
Ver believes in making people believe that Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin no matter what happens in November. Because of this, he is mainly focused on taking the initiative to convince as many groups and important people as possible that they should adopt BCH instead of BTC.
He also has spoken about the price of Bitcoin during the interview. Back in 2011, Ver was asked about the future price of Bitcoin and he said that it would outperform the price of gold, silver and even the U. S. stock market by more than a hundred times across a span of only two years.
That did not happen, obviously. Now, he says that the main reason why mistook the prediction was because the market was not so fragmented as it is now and there was not only one cryptocurrency, but only one Bitcoin. There were no competitors, so before the community was shattered, he had high hopes for price in only a few years down the road.
At the end of the interview, Ver talked about the criticism that because he recently spoke about babies dying because of lack of economic freedom. He said that it was a fact, narrated his philosophy and asked that anybody who disagreed should “brush up on their economics” before doing it.
