The fight of BCH forking between Roger Ver and Craig Wright has put up enough drama on the street as both threw blows at each other. But before this could calm down completely another heavyweight seems to have joined the fight. Its old foes Vitalik and Craig are now getting into a verbal battle over social media.
Vitalik and Craig Wright have never been on the same page
While things were looking far away from settling between Ver and Wright over the Bitcoin Cash Fork, a new battle seems to have surfaced on social media just days before the announced date of the Fork. It has been witnessed that Vitalik and Wright have been making comments against each other.
As Tim Copeland shared a news on Craig comments on the Fork, he mentioned that “Vitalik Buterin believes Craig Wright should not have a voice”
Vitalik Buterin believes Craig Wright should not have a voice. While many disagree with his beliefs, tactics and conduct–I believe he has a right, like anyone, to be heard. So, here is his side. @VitalikButerin @JihanWu @CobraBitcoin #bitcoincash #crypto https://t.co/W4AcMkT5Fi

to which Vitalik replied “Craig Wright absolutely should have a voice. But so, do all of us laughing at his stupidity.”
Craig Wright absolutely should have a voice. But so do all of us laughing at his stupidity.

A couple of days back Craig Wright had also replied on Vitalik’s tweet calling him a moron

Vitalik Buterin and Craig Wright have not been the best of friends ever as they have been seen exchanging verbal comments against each other for a while now. The major being, In April, Buterin called Craig Wright a “fraud”. He then voiced his opinion saying the now defunct Bit connect symbol BCC should now be known as Bitcoin Craig. He had also refuted claims that Craig Wright was Satoshi Nakamoto (as Craig Wright had claimed)
Vitalik Buterin, who has no major connection to Bitcoin Cash, has discussed the controversy on Twitter over the past week. He was clearly seeming to be on ABC’s side as his displeasure for Craig Wright has been clearly out in the open. He had previously also tweeted in August asking BCH community to not to follow Craig Wright.
The BCH community should NOT compromise with Craig Wright to “avoid a split” and should embrace it as an opportunity to conclusively ostracize and reject him. Bitcoin Craig (BCC) can go take the ticker symbol from the now-defunct cryptocurrency to which it is a fitting successor.

Forking events have been controversial but the one that we are witnessing in Bitcoin Cash community is something the crypto industry was yet to witness. Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which came into existence as a fork of major cryptocurrency Bitcoin, is fast approaching its own fork and is also bringing in much larger controversy then it had gathered on its separation from the Bitcoin.
The community has been divided between Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash Satoshi’s Vision (SV). ABC’s direction, which is proposed by the ABC development team, is the fork favoured by the market and backed by Bitmain as well as many others. On the other hand, SV is the variant proposed by Craig Wright, the controversial figure who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto.
While the BCH stakeholders were expecting some truce between the two as the dates of the fork was approaching, things just got a lot dirtier as both sides lashed each other all over social media. Videos have emerged and there has been verbal comments made against each other. And now with Vitalik’s entry seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. What is going to happen with the fork is something we will only know on the 15th November. Stay tuned
Will the BCH community see some good result out of this Fork or its going to all go down the drain? Do let us know your views on the same.
