The Bitcoin Cash Civil War just got a lot more heated. Roger Ver, the owner of Bitcoin.com and one of the largest figures in Bitcoin Cash has shown an email allegedly from Craig Wright. In the email, Wright threatens to break Bitcoin Cash, preventing all trading for two years bringing its value down to zero.
The email came after Bitcoin.com indicated that it will support the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain promoted by Jihan Wu and Bitmain. Wright, who is best known for failing to prove he is Satoshi Nakamoto, wants to avoid a hardfork that will upgrade the Bitcoin Cash system.
Wright disagrees with the scaling solutions proposed by Bitcoin ABC, particularly the expanding of Bitcoin Cash’s scripts through DSV. He has been working on his own client that won’t support those upgrades and instead has its own upgrades including a blocksize increase to 128MB.
Regardless of one’s opinion on the proposed upgrades or the two individuals involved, the email is quite shocking.
“If you want a war…
I will do 2 years of no trade. Nothing.
In the war, no coin can trade.
If you want ABC, you want shitcoins, welcome to bankruptcy.
It was nice knowing you.
Bitcoin will die before ABC shits on it. I will see BCH trade at 0 for a few years. Will you?
Side with ABC, you hate bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have fucking no idea what that means.
I AM Satoshi. Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off.
