ViaBTC Calls Craig Wright a Lunatic and Tyrant Who Wishes to Kill Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
ViaBTC Attacks Craig Wright Saying that He is a Lunatic and a Tyrant
ViaBTC, one of the largest mining pools in the market has shown that it is aligned with the Bitcoin ABC proposal. On Twitter, the company showed that it is completely opposite to what Craig Wright promotes. Additionally, they said that he is a Lunatic and a Tyrant. When twitter users tried to toy with, ViaBTC and say he was referring to Jihan Wu, he contested and stated Bitmain’s CEO, is “quite wise and intelligent.” Jihan Wu supports Bitcoin ABC and has a similar point of view as Roger Ver.
In a tweet uploaded on November 12, ViaBTC answered a comment that was asking the firm to support the Bitcoin SV proposal backed by Mr. Wright. The company answered that they will not be supporting ‘the tyrant or lunatic who wishes to kill BCH and just try to invent a new coin of his own.’
I am sorry we don't feel right to support the tyrant or lunatic who wishes to kill BCH and just try to invent a new coin of his own to develop his own mining industry, and wishes kill other companies just out of sheer personal grudge. This is totally unacceptable!

Clearly, the response was referring to Craig Wright, nChain founder, and Bitcoin SV supporter.
Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s co-founder, has also gotten involved in this discussion regarding the upcoming Bitcoin Cash Fork. He mentioned on Twitter that this is the second best time to oppose a tyrant and a lunatic.
The best time to oppose a tyrant or lunatic is one year ago. The second best time is today. https://t.co/aul5cBuGcU

It is important to mention that the Bitcoin Cash hash power is very important to understand how the upcoming network upgrade is going to affect the whole network. At the time of writing, Bitcoin SV owns more than 70% of the hash power of the network, that means that it might be the supported network right after the hard fork.
ViaBTC has also been a strong supporter of Bitcoin Cash in the past. This is why the company is going to do everything that is possible to avoid any attack from sending their hash power over to another network.
The Bitcoin Cash and crypto community has shown support for the proposal made by Bitcoin SV rather than by Bitcoin ABC. Nevertheless, the hash power is the most important factor at the time of determining which network ends up being the winner or not.
