Tomorrow, November 15, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network will hold a hard fork, which will split altcoin into two incompatible clients - Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV. The first client is the “traditional” implementation of Bitcoin Cash, while the second (with the loud name Bitcoin Satoshi Vision) suggests an increase in the block to 128 MB (the current BCH size is 32 MB), and is actively promoted by the “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” Craig Wright, who -for a long time- doesn’t have the best reputation.
Another confirmation of this was the message of ViaBTC, one of the largest mining pools. So, in response to a tweet from user Jason Elliot, who asked the mining pool to support Satoshi Vision "for the good of a unified Bitcoin Cash chain," ViaBTC wrote the following:
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!— ViaBTC (@ViaBTC) November 13, 2018
Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of ethereum, who had previously openly called Wright a fraudster, has replied to this tweet. He wrote:
The best time to oppose a tyrant or lunatic is one year ago. The second best time is today. https://t.co/aul5cBuGcU— Vitalik Non-giver of Ether (@VitalikButerin) November 14, 2018
Jihan Wu, the co-founder of the Chinese mining giant Bitmain, has also spoken on the topic.
The whole BCH community are working together to kick Fake Satoshi out. The resisitence against cult leader proves the inner strength and sophistication of the BCH ecosystem!— Jihan Wu (@JihanWu) November 9, 2018
Craig Wright, whose Twitter now is really reminding the notes of a madman, answered Buterin in his already well-known insulting manner:
The best time to laugh at a Soy boy conman is now, the next best tike is any.— Dr Craig S Wright (@ProfFaustus) November 14, 2018
ETH is a soy boy loser coin... https://t.co/LBQkDlKK23
Meanwhile, instead of finding the consensus leaders of the two sides Roger Ver and Craig Wright are declaring a war, simultaneously trying to figure out who is the real Satoshi Nakamoto among them.
