‘You Are My Enemy’: Bitcoin Cash Sides Clash as Hard Fork Looms
Ongoing drama surrounding the upcoming Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork struck a personal note with the coin’s best-known figures Nov. 8, as Craig Wright evidently called Roger Ver his “enemy.” The hard fork, scheduled for Nov. 15, will likely see BCH split into two rival chains: Bitcoin Cash ABC, favored by Ver, and Bitcoin Cash SV, authored by Wright’s nChain. The split comes as a result of Ver and Wright, among other figures attached to BCH, disagreeing over the coin’s future, with those disagreements becoming increasingly public and strongly-worded in recent weeks. On Thursday, Nov. 8, tempers appeared to boil over, Ver releasing what appeared to be a screenshot of an email sent to him by Wright during a video about this “thoughts” on the hard fork. In the alleged email, Wright claims Ver “hates Bitcoin” and describes him as his “enemy,” before ending with a thinly-veiled threat. “I AM Satoshi,” he writes, repeating his controversial assertion about being the creator of Bitcoin itself. The letter continues dramatically:“Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off.”
