Roger Ver Says Full Blocks Have Limited Bitcoin Adoption

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap Bitcoin is the first cryptocurrency ever created by Satoshi Nakamoto. While Bitcoin experienced a pretty rapid adoption after its creation, Bitcoin.com Founder and famous Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver say its adoption has thwarted by its limited block size.
Increasing fees caused the market decline
The Bitcoin block was limited to 1MB from its creation which was enough to contain transactions comfortably at the time. However, the size has not been increased by Bitcoin developers so as adoption increased, the block capacity became exhausted which led to increased transaction fees as transactions needed to be prioritized using fees as criteria. According to Ver, this has seriously caused Bitcoin adoption to stall. The chart below explains better.

Bitcoin block size limit chart
The 1MB block size got exhausted in January 2017 as shown and since then, Bitcoin market cap percent as fees increased due to a halt in adoption. The limited block size was the reason behind the Bitcoin hard fork that led to the creation of Bitcoin Cash when there was disagreement on whether or not to increase the block size.

Roger Ver has been a strong supporter of Bitcoin Cash since then and has also strongly advocated for the adoption of BCH rather than Bitcoin because of the block size limit. Ver believes the full block size is a deliberate action by Bitcoin developers. Could it be true that the developers have deliberately refused to increase block size?

Bitcoin Cash [BCH]: Roger Ver divulges details about SLP based token for K-pop

The latest luminary in the space to come out in support of a mainstream usage of crypto is Roger Ver, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Bitcoin.com and a voracious supporter of Bitcoin Cash [BCH].
In the latest video released by Bitcoin.com, Ver revealed details about a new token made just for Korean Pop [K-pop] music. The token will be called the Brave Sound token and will be made on the Bitcoin Cash platform. He stated:
“This is a great moment for all of us because I am a fan of kpop and bitcoin cash embracing the growing culture is a big deal. The upcoming token will be based on the Single Ledger Protocol [SLP] and I thank Digifinex for listing it on their platform.”
The Brave Sound Token officials released their own circular talking about Ver’s involvement in the project, stating:
“We are proud to confirm that Mr. Roger Ver is now a shareholder of Brave Sound Token (BRST). Roger Keith Ver is an early investor in bitcoin-related startups. He has been a prominent supporter of bitcoin adoption and saw bitcoin as a means to promote economic freedom.”
Roger Ver was also in the news recently for his ongoing war against nChain chief scientist Craig Wright and his claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin. Ver had said:
“Craig Wright is a liar and a fraud. So sue me, again.”
Ver’s comments caught the eye of several players in the cryptoverse, out of which one was WhalePanda, who tweeted:
“You gave this man a platform, you gave him credibility and now you can no longer use/control him. SAD”

Roger Ver Strikes Back at “Dropgold” Proponents, Says Bitcoin is Digital Fool’s Gold

Founder of Bitcoin.com and renowned Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver has fired back at those proposing the Dropgold campaign. in a tweet, Ver said, “Bitcoin with intentionally full blocks is digital fool’s gold.” He was speaking of the major issue with Bitcoin which has been the block size and the number of transactions it can process.
Source: Twitter
Roger Ver and the anti Bitcoin campaign
Roger Ver has been a strong opponent of Bitcoin whose team he was part of since the Bitcoin Cash hard fork separated from the number one cryptocurrency. Ver’s major argument which actually caused the breaking of the Bitcoin blockchain has been the limited block size of Bitcoin which has been set at 1 MB.
This has placed a serious limitation on the Bitcoin network’s ability to scale and process more transactions. Ver has often compared Bitcoin with BCH in terms of the number of transactions, speed and cost of the transaction, all of which he claims score higher points with BCH than with Bitcoin.
The Dropgold campaign
Bitcoin has been growing really fast and so has the market. Indeed, gold which has been the main store of value for centuries is starting to lose patronage to Bitcoin as suggested by Google search trends. This has stirred the Dropgold campaign which has gone viral. Obviously, Ver doesn’t think Bitcoin should be considered the new gold, he probably would rather have BCH.
Source: Google Trends
Although Ver’s argument has some elements of truth, it has not actually affected Bitcoin’s popularity or acceptance. With the growing market and the massive adoption Bitcoin is getting, it may indeed become the next gold in the nearest future.
Do let us know your view on the same.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] bull Roger Ver denies ownership of ‘@bitcoin’, says allegations are false

Major proponents of the cryptocurrency space have always contributed to the crypto-verse by putting digital assets on the front foot by informing users about the importance of decentralization and the effects of successful integration with the mainstream financial ecosystem. One such proponent is Roger Ver, the Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Bitcoin.com and a major Bitcoin Cash [BCH] proponent.
In a recent interview with Bruce Porter, Ver talked about the importance of digital assets as well as its advantage in circumventing crushing government overwatch. The Bitcoin.com CEO stated:
“One thing that people need to understand is the peer to peer electronic cash is the best because it brings in economic freedom to the whole world and I think that’s something that everyone wants.”
Ver also touched upon how governments are arresting individuals like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden for calling out the surveillance conducted by officials on the country’s citizens. According to Ver:
“I cannot believe that people think Assange and Snowden are criminals. All they are pointing out is that governments are using the money that you pay as taxes and then using that to spy on you, that is ridiculous. That is why we all need to start using crypto so that governments cannot control it and we all can enjoy the freedom we deserve.”
The BCH bull further spoke about Cash Shuffle and its integration within the BCH network. He stated that bringing in the new technology would add a new dimension to fungible tokens and the entire privacy aspect of the cryptocurrency industry. Ver clarified on an ongoing rumor that he owns the Twitter handle ‘@bitcoin’, saying that he has nothing to do with it and that his actual handle is @rogerkver. In his words:
“The @bitcoin handle is run by someone else since 2009 and some people in the cryptocurrency space know him too. Evidently, he likes Bitcoin Cash more because the original Bitcoin was supposed to be like Cash but now it is more of a science project. The fact that I would publish anti Bitcoin tweets from another handle is false as I would never solicit you for anything and want people to realize on their own that BCH is the currency that will bring economic freedom to the whole world.”

Crypto Twitteraties Demand @Bitcoin Twitter Account Suspension, Twitter CEO Responds Quickly

Although Satoshi’s identity is a still mystery even if Craig Wright is continuously striving, Crypto twitteraties demands suspension of @Bitcoin Twitter account.
Should @Bitcoin Twitter Account be suspended?
While Satoshi Nakamoto is famously known as the creator of Bitcoin but remained anonymous to the whole world, the Crypto community on Twitter is talking tough on how should ‘Bitcoin’ Twitter account be treated? As such, self-claimed Bitcoin educator ‘Jimmy Song’, took to Twitter and created a poll, asking ‘The @bitcoin account should be’ with four options that say either left alone, suspended for fraud or shadowbanned and other.
The poll bagged 6062 votes and among four options ‘suspended for fraud’ ranked 54%, higher than rest three options.

Nevertheless, the poll is then followed by leading Twitter accounts such as Whale Panda which currently has 215.8K followers and one of the famous profile in crypto Twitter. Whale Panda retweeted the poll stating that Bitcoin account should be suspended just like the Internet Account. It cites ToS as the account is sold against Terms of Service and claimed that it is actively defrauding people.

CEO Jack Dorsey’s Response
Nevertheless, the account is closely related to Roger Ver, the founder of Bitcoin Cash. He also owns news.bitcoin.com which often shill Bitcoin Cash(BCH) and sources that supports BCH cryptocurrency. Moreover, @Bitcoin Twitter account also recently tweeting more about BCH and meantime criticizing the BTC networks’ problem. This gotten the attention of Bitcoin maximalists and one such BTC proponent, Zack Voell (often active on Twitter and an analyst for Messari Report) also voiced his concern on Twitter.

He also shared his and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s private conversation screenshot (which is deleted now) – According to the screenshot, Dorsey asked ‘what do you recommend we do with it?’

Who Handles @Bitcoin Twitter.? Roger Ver?
Moreover, the report stated that the account has already been banned in 2018 and experienced ‘shadow ban’ earlier to this. However, it is still unclear who really handles @Bitcoin but many assume it as Roger Ver. Here is Roger Ver’s response when @Bitcoin was banned during April 2018.

Following the recent deplatform voice, @Bitcoin Twitter account officially released a couple of ‘back to back’ tweets to elaborate the whole scenario. One such tweet claim that Roger is not the one who is tweeting;

Moreover, Jimmy Song’s poll indicates users voice and demands this account should be suspended due to defrauding people. However, Twitter does delete any account for a common reason such as Spam, Account security at risk or if users have reported Twitter that it is violating its rules surrounding abuse.
So readers, do you agree with the poll result.? Do you think Roger Ver’s closely related @Bitcoin Twitter account Should be permanently suspended just like a @Internet account? Let us know in the comment below

Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver’s special message to Craig Wright says he is a ‘liar and a fraud’

Roger Ver, the CEO of Bitcoin.com and a well-known Bitcoin Cash proponent, is the latest to comment on the Craig Wright controversy by releasing a video titled ‘Special Message to Craig Wright’.
In the short-video, Ver asserted that Craig Wright was a “liar and a fraud”, adding “sue me again!”. Notably, Ver and Wright were on good terms with each other, however, their alliance was broken due to the Bitcoin Cash hard fork, which took place in November 2018.
Prior to the hard fork, Ver had even stated “Satoshi or not, the things Craig Wright is saying are exactly the things that caused me to sign up for Bitcoin in the first place” in a 2017 interview with Motherboard. The Bitcoin Cash hard fork hash war, however, saw Ver and Wright on opposite teams, with Ver supporting the Bitcoin ABC fork and Wright standing against the hard fork and promoting the Satoshi Vision upgrade.
The bitter war had Ver stating that “maybe” he was fooled by Craig Wright, after he received an email from Wright. The email read,
“If you want war… I will do 2 years of no trade […] I will see BCH trade at 0 for few years. Will you? Side with ABC, you hate Bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have fucking no idea what that means. You will. I AM Satoshi. Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off. And, no. You could have had proof. You choice.”
Nevertheless, this statement led to several members in the cryptocurrency community pointing out his previous statements that were in favor of Craig Wright, even when several influencers were against him.

Todu, a Reddit user, said,
“Haha. Nice and succinct! You could however also say that “[I think that] Craig Wright is definitely not Satoshi.” because you still have never said that very clearly. It’s possible to think that Craig is a liar and a fraud and that he’s Satoshi anyway […]”
Interestingly, Bitcoin Cash [BCH] was the only coin in the top 10 to record a notable hike. According to CoinMarketCap, the coin was trading at $317.06 with a market cap of over $5 billion. The coin recorded a hike of over 5 percent in the past 24 hours and the past seven days.

Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver calls out Bitfury; asks them to stop spying on and selling users’ transactions

Roger Ver, in a recent talk with the CEO of SBI Holdings, Adam Traidman, took the opportunity and called out another mining player, Bitfury to stop spying. According to the BCH proponent, Bitfury claimed that a section of its business was busy spying on users’ transactions and selling their data. Ver criticized Bitfury, accusing the US-based blockchain software and hardware firm of spying and selling the transactional data of the users.
Asking people to be skeptical about companies like Bitfury, Ver said,
“.. when you ask yourself why would they [Bitfury] want to limit the block size, it makes it easier for them to spy on every day and it makes harder for cryptocurrencies to become currencies for the world.”
According to the Bitcoin hard fork advocate, the firm was selling user data so that they can to spy on them, while simultaneously advocating against the tools that would facilitate user privacy with their digital assets.
Previously, Kyrylo Chykhradze, the head of Bitfury Crystal, said that keeping tabs on Bitcoin [BTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH] blockchains was possible with the help of the exchange’s analytics arm. Chykhradze stated that Crystal, while leveraging a unique clustering algorithm, can determine addresses belonging to specific users. He further added,
“Crystal, which has assisted financial institutions and law enforcement in identifying and tracing criminal activities such as extortion and money-laundering, assigns a risk score based on every bitcoin address that has ever appeared in the blockchain.”

Bitcoin Cash [BCH]: UnitedCorp files opposition to dismiss against Roger Ver, Bitmain and Kraken in hard fork fraud claims

The Bitcoin Cash [BCH] hard fork that occurred on November 15, 2018, captured multiple headlines with many marking it a major event in the field of cryptocurrencies. The hard fork is the one that resulted in the split of the BCH blockchain to give birth to two different cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin Cash [BCH] and Bitcoin SV [BSV].
The fork was dominated by two camps, the Bitcoin ABC team led by Roger Ver and Bitmain’s Jihan Wu while the Bitcoin SV was led by nChain’s Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre. Post the fork, Ver and Wu were both sued by United Corp, an American management company who claimed that the ABC camp including popular cryptocurrency exchange Kraken, had flouted rules and regulations to benefit from the fork. The initial lawsuit said:
“The defendants [Bitmain, Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver and Kraken] collectively engaged in unfair methods of competition and through a series of unconscionable, deceptive and unfair practices, manipulated the Bitcoin Cash network for their benefit and to the detriment of UnitedCorp and other Bitcoin Cash stakeholders.”
The lawsuit was refuted by the alleged parties, citing lack of evidence and bogus claims. Following this, UnitedCorp has filed a new opposition to dismiss in its lawsuit. The company challenged the defendants to explain their actions under oath and stated that they will pursue discovery by way of deposition or under subpoena of the defendants.
The latest lawsuit made it the first antitrust action brought in the United States that involves the cryptocurrency industry. The new release from the company said:
“Miami‐based United American Corp announced today that their legal counsel Akerman LLP has filed a Consolidated Opposition to Defendant’s Motions to Dismiss Complaint in its suit against Bitmain Group, Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver, Jihan Wu, Kraken, Jesse Powell, Amaury Sechet, Shammah Chancellor and Jason Cox (the “Defendants”). The opposition was filed after the Defendants filed a motion to dismiss the UnitedCorp action on February 1st 2019.”
UnitedCorp also specifically pointed out to Bitmain’s usage of the Overt ASICBoost as a method to enhance Bitcoin ABC’s version of the fork. The company further stated that the firmware was made available in advance of the last Bitcoin Cash update by Bitmain only to Bitcoin ABC-supported pools, which are operated by the Roger Ver owned Bitcoin.com. The lawsuit also added:
“UnitedCorp alleges that these activities are evidence of not only a violation of the accepted standards and protocols associated with Bitcoin since its inception, but a violation of US antitrust laws including parts of the Sherman Act.”
