Vitalik Buterin gives his opinion on Bitcoin Cash
The discussion about the comparison between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin is still in force and this time Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin expressed himself regarding the controversy.
Bitcoin Cash no es Bitcoin
The co-founder of the Ethereum network, Vitalik Buterin, published his opinion on Bitcoin Cash on his official Twitter account. The February 1 publication was in response to Brad Mills's accusation to Buterin in which he states that: "@VitalikButerin promotes the fraudluent Bcash narrative" bitcoin cash is bitcoin "because it helps ETH. He knows giving attention to BCH is a tactic to weaken the Bitcoin brand. It's his revenge for bitcoiners supporting ETC & trolling him relentlessly."
In response to the accusation of Brad Mills, Buterin published "Bitcoin Cash is not Bitcoin." While clearly marking the difference between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin, Buterin is not 100% against Bitcoin Cash: in 2017, months after the vifurcacon that divided Bitcoin into two currencies, Buterin published in its official account of Twitter a positive trade on Bitcoin Cash. At that time Buterin affirmed that: "1- I considered BCH a legitimate contender for the bitcoin name. I considered bitcoin's * failure * to raise block sizes to keep fees reasonable to be a large (non-consensual) change to the 'original plan', morally tantamount to a hard fork. 2- Theymos's censorship."
Buterin's position is moderate and, although it clearly makes a difference, he does not favor the preference of either project (BCH and BTC). Buterin affirms that: "In case you are wondering on which side I am in all this, I am on the side of taking seriously the challenges of public goods and of being open to adjust the ideological preconceptions while maintaining a commitment to the fundamental values of the decentralization to meet them."
