Some noise in bitcoin community was started by a fake “Satoshi”, probably a troll (one cryptotroll?). Well, let’s to read NewsBTC text:
A couple of Bitcoin Cash’s most high-profile supporters have fallen out within the pending BCH hard fork. Craig “Fake Satoshi” Wright sent an abusive email to Roger Ver the 2009 week. Yesterday, Ver responded.
Inside a video published towards the Bitcoin.com YouTube funnel, certainly one of the cryptocurrency’s earliest proponents and investors, Roger Ver, has taken care of immediately an e-mail sent from self-announced Satoshi, Craig Wright.
The 2 early Bitcoin pioneers have each sided and among the opposing camps within the November 15 hard fork (Ver is by using ABC and Wright backs Bitcoin SV). Obviously, in the wording from the email, Wright strongly disapproves of Ver’s allegiance.
Ver opened up the recording by screen-discussing and reciting Wright’s correspondence:
“If you’ll need a war…
I’ll do 24 months of no trade. Nothing.
Within the war, no gold coin can trade.
If you would like ABC, you would like shitcoins, thanks for visiting personal bankruptcy.
It had been nice knowing you.
Bitcoin will die before ABC shits onto it. I’ll see BCH trade at for any couple of years. Are you going to?
Affiliate with ABC, you hate bitcoin, you’re my enemy. You’ve got no fucking idea what which means.
I’m Satoshi. Possess a nice existence. You’ll now uncover me when pissed off.
And thus. You might have had proof. Your decision.
After discussing the e-mail and getting Wright’s maturity into question, Ver contrasted the questionable crypto figure’s words with individuals of fellow Bitcoin SV proponent and gambling entrepreneur Calvin Ayre. The Bitcoin.com owner mentioned he likes Ayre and paraphrased his reaction to his decision to affiliate with Bitcoin ABC:
“Hey Roger, wherever you’re prepared to rejoin the camp ground that supports economic freedom, we’re here ready for you personally. That appears like something a sane person would say.”
Through the video, Ver displayed a combination of confusion and exasperation although explaining how he felt concerning the disagreement. The person formerly referred to as Bitcoin Jesus mentioned he believed the fork would pass rather uneventfully. He compared it towards the Y2K bug, stating that probably there’d not be any lengthy-term split however it didn’t hurt to be ready for your outcome:
“I think it’s most likely unlikely that you will see a lengthy-term fork, especially because there isn’t any replay protection… The only method for you to get ready for [the fork] within the lengthy-term would be to make certain you are able to treat the 2 coins separate coins.”
As one example of his point, Ver advised viewers from the mess which was made from the Ethereum hard fork following a DAO hack. Since some exchanges didn’t implement replay protection, customers and exchanges lost money.
Ver then mused which chain might have most support when there would be a lengthy-term split. Applying hash rate evidence, the first Bitcoin investor mentioned that ABC might have a “significant majority”. He supported this with data from Poloniex, an exchange that has launched futures buying and selling for Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC already:
“At as soon as, sturdy 1:10 towards ABC however i think the volume’s pretty light still.”
Throughout the video, Ver is clearly not enamoured by the possibilities of another hard fork under 18 several weeks next which produced Bitcoin Cash to begin with. He even goes so far as to empathise using the “Bitcoin Core” position before the August 2017 fork:
“One factor which i guess I’ve learned… The main people previous were really really against any kind of contentious hard fork and i believe there’s some merit to being scared of that. We’re seeing at this time the harm that may be brought on by getting contentious hard fork.”
Later within the video also, he states:
“I wish everybody could all just get on but it is not reality… I wish that people could develop a cryptocurrency that allows more economic freedom for the whole world.”
However, Ver does acknowledge it had become only because of the ability of 1 minority group to reject most and fork off that produced his pet project initially.
Finally, the Bitcoin uniform finally offered up some suggestion for individuals Bitcoin Cash holders worried about the end result of the fork:
“Hold you coins inside a wallet that you control the non-public key. That’s always very good advice.”
It wasn’t just Roger Ver that has considered in around the email though. Many prominent commentators and participants within the space took to Twitter to voice their opinion. Jihan Wu, the Chief executive officer of mining hardware giants Bitmain, tweeted:
The entire BCH community will work together to kick Fake Satoshi out. The resisitence against cult leader proves the interior strength and class from the BCH ecosystem!

Meanwhile, Emin Gün Sirer known the episode from Wright like a “meltdown”:
Are we able to cut with the CSW meltdown rapidly, and go to the part where he starts filing frivolous lawsuits?

Finally, CNBC’s Crypto Trader presenter Ran Neu-Ner published a tongue-in-oral cavity poll referencing Wright’s bout of megalomania:
If @ProfFaustus (Dr Craig Wright) launched their own gold coin can you support it?
