Popular in the crypto sphere “self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto” Craig Wright has threatened in his Twitter account that he would reduce the bitcoin’s (BTC) price if majority of all miners switch to mine Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
To all BTC miners...— Dr Craig S Wright (@ProfFaustus) November 14, 2018
If you switch to mine BCH, we may need to fund this with BTC, if we do, we sell for USD and, well... we think BTC market has no room... it tanks.
Think about it. We will sell A Lot!
And, have a nice day

Including the fact that the whole crypto market is in deep bearish pit, such threat may be considered not just like a blackmail. The uncertainty among miners is still keep strong on the eve of the upcoming BCH hardfork which will happen on November 15th.
Earlier, the co-founder of ethereum (ETH), Vitalik Buterin, commented Wright in twitter by saying that "the best time to oppose a tyrant or lunatic was one year ago. The second best time is today."
