The fact that so many people are willing to call Roger Ver a scammer for supporting Bitcoin Cash just goes to show that BCore is nothing more than a worthless digital beanie baby asset. He has done more for Bitcoin than anybody else, aside from Satoshi himself - yet somehow trying to make it usable makes him a scammer?

Those naysayers are completely insane. They unironically defend goblins that have deliberately used censorship and astroturfing in order to stop people from using Bitcoin as Cash.

Roger Ver is a past felon who went to prison for selling explosives on ebay. He's just another edgy ancap trash aka egotistic sociopath who only cares about making money

I switched to bitcoin cash cause I could buy flights with it and move money around without getting raped by miner fees.
Roger lives in Japan and is a crypto idealist who doesn't care for big government, says taxation is theft, races fast cars, triggers redditors, and sells fireworks online. Seems like /ourguy/

>> No.9313248

I'm Roger Ver, long time Bitcoin advocate and investor. Today I'm at the Mt. Gox World Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. I had a nice chat with Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles about their current situation. He showed me multiple bank statements, as well as letters from banks and lawyers. I am sure that all the current withdrawal problems at Mt. Gox are being caused by the traditional banking system, not because of a lack of liquidity at Mt. Gox.

The traditional banking partners that Mt. Gox needs to work with are not able to keep up with the demands of the growing Bitcoin economy. The dozens of people who make up the Mt. Gox team are hard at work establishing additional banking partners that eventually will make dealing with Mt. Gox easier for all their customers around the world. For now, I hope everyone will continue working on Bitcoin projects that will help make the world a better place.

Mike Hern and Gavin Andresen created Bitcoin XT because Bitcoin was already infiltrated aaaaallllll the way back then.

Gavin Andresen is the guy that satoshi originally left the Bitcoin project with.

Mike was a big deal and we all should mourn that we lost his talent:


>> No.9313653

Roger actively supported it. I shouldn't have said created.


>> No.9313710

What vested interest does he have? Pretty sure he is rich enough. You know this guy was close to sucide as a millionaire kicked out of the U.S. before he got his lifes mission to bring Bitcoin to the masses. Seems obvious to me that he doesn't care about money,, he talks about adoption and freedom from government. Roger in the past has recommended people hold both coins. He wants Bitcoin to do well, and hasn't sold any from when Bitcoin segwit (BTC) forked off. He just believes that BCH is the better way to get useable, fast, fungible, non government controlled money to the masses. And so is promoting it.

>> No.9313780

Vested interest means he has a shit ton of Bitcoin Cash and the better it does, the richer he becomes. He's said that he keeps his Bitcoin (BTC) only because he thinks it's good to be diversified (aka in case Bitcoin Cash fails).

He believes it should be exactly what the title of the Satoshi white paper says it should be ; peer to peer electronic cash.
The only reason that's even controversial is because paid saboteurs backed by the mainstream finance industry waged a hijack and sabotage campaign to fool clueless normies into thinking the entire project was something other than it was.
They failed, and it's only a matter of time before the organic price increase from actual adoption wipes out their fake chain permanently.
Position yourself appropriately or be wiped out by the coming wave. If you are not smart enough to act on this, the market has selected you to be the eternal core bagholder on the frozen chain.

Thanks for the update. It still proves my point precisely. It is a necessary consequence of the staked routed nature of the network that it will always be this way.

Because all it takes is one dickhead with an elected office and a pen to declare that all transactions routed through hubs stored in the great state of such and such must abide by x and all of a sudden because those hubs are custodians and thus money transmitters they must abide by said rules. Meaning end of the day it's only going to be banks running them, and they will be as compliant with financial law and state meddling with their jewed lightning hubs as they are with their jewed banking hubs, but I repeat myself.
It's over coretard. You lost before you even knew there was a war. That's why blockstream's entire fucking website right now is all about how they're going to be a vendor to the banking industry.

LN is economically designed to form large hubs.
Bigger hubs attract more users = more fees.
Bigger hubs have fewer hops for users = cheaper fees for them.
Economically designed to end up with a few large hubs.
That is fact, not up for debate.

If you wanted to censor and regulate would you rather have to focus on a few large hubs which everyone relies on, or every mining computer that exists?

What if the hubs suddenly require KYC from you? What if they deny you access? (Because they can)

Bitcoin, the one designed from 2009, doesn't have that economic weakness that LN has.
Its a singular broadcast network. Send tx once, all miners receive it nearly simultaneously.
You can't censor that.

But go play with your lightning toys.

It doesn't matter whether you care or not, you're still going to be stuck on a permanently frozen chain, with all your assets worth exactly zero. Your consent, your fucking *awareness* of the fact, are completely fucking irrelevant. You will perish all the same.

Every day the price diverges by 6.66666666666666% concurrently, the closer you come to being stuck forever with a dead and worthless chain, and given the bankrupt value of the chain you're on, this is absolutely guaranteed to happen eventually.
