OpenNode is a newish payment processing company for Bitcoin Core (BTC). It is built on the Lightning Network, which is still working out bugs a year after being introduced, and promises to offer a cheaper and faster BTC payment option than most of the other processors in the cryptocurrency market. OpenNode was able to attract a significant investment, $1.25 million, by Tim Draper, but a recent attempt by Bitcoin Cash (BCH) proponent Roger Ver to expand the platform\u2019s capabilities was met with an immediate rejection.\u00a0 Ver had reportedly offered in a YouTube video (fast-forward to around the 21-minute mark) to invest $1.25 million in OpenNode \u2013 in exchange for zero equity \u2013 if it would develop a payments solution for BCH. The investment would ultimately amount to nothing more than a million-dollar donation since \u201cCrypto Jesus\u201d didn\u2019t want \u201ceven one share\u201d in OpenNode.\u00a0 Perhaps he was just feeling the Christmas Spirit, or dipping into the Christmas spirits. Those are the only two reasons why someone would be willing to make such a sizeable donation with no possibility of making a direct return.\u00a0 With that type of money, if Ver needs to find a suitable payment solution, it would make sense that he could source his own development team. Given that the YouTube video begins by completely tearing apart the Lightning Network as not being a viable solution \u2013 at least not for the next 30 or 40 years \u2013 it is mind-boggling that he would turn around and offer the same BTC payments processor money to create a solution for BCH.\u00a0 OpenNode didn\u2019t bite. In responding to the video on Twitter, the company stated, \u201cThanks for the $125MM offer @rogerkver, but we\u2019re going to have to turn it down. Our vision of a better, more open financial system is only possible with Bitcoin.\u201d At least OpenNode recognizes a wolf in sheep\u2019s clothing. After all, Ver is the man who has lobbied for governments to be overthrown and who doesn\u2019t see anything wrong with sites that promote illegal and criminal activity.\u00a0 Of course, what most are now referring to Bitcoin is everything but Bitcoin. The only cryptocurrency that is still moving forward in accordance with the original design of Bitcoin as outlined by Satoshi, and the only one that understands the true value of digital currency, is Bitcoin SV. Bitcoin SV is determined to allow the world to see a true cryptocurrency that functions as an alternative to fiat and which is working to meet the scaling demands necessary to achieve worldwide adoption.
