Statement: CoinGeek will support Bitcoin.com in lawsuit over the real Bitcoin
CoinGeek welcomes this opportunity to subject the merits of both BTC and Bitcoin Cash BCH to scrutiny in court.
Recently, a group of BTC devotees launched a website in hopes of gathering a crowd as well as some funds to aid their effort in filing a lawsuit against the website, Bitcoin.com. The group, which also has a dedicated Telegram group started by Twitter user @MoneyTrigz, alleges that Bitcoin.com’s user interface confuses buyers by using the same logo colour for both BTC and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). They add that referring to BTC as Bitcoin Core was enough to mislead BTC buyers into mistakenly purchasing BCH.
The group is now soliciting donations for their cause through their website bitcoincomlawsuit.info. Whether this complaint or its proponents have any viable claims is yet to be seen.
CoinGeek welcomes this as an opportunity to challenge the cultist dogma and subject to scrutiny the merits of BCH against that of BTC in court. Below is CoinGeek’s official statement about the matter.
A statement from Calvin Ayre, CoinGeek.com Founder
CoinGeek.com will support and join any lawsuit related to what is the real Bitcoin. We look forward to a court reviewing the original white paper and the evolution of the two major branches that are on the chain that originated with the bitcoin genesis block.
It is clear to anyone who knows the history and technology that Bitcoin BTC is inaccurately using the Bitcoin name and has forked to Segwit technology and is no longer bitcoin or even a cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin BCH forked back to being bitcoin after the Segwit fork and is staying true to the original white paper. CoinGeek has been studying how we could get this issue before a court and would welcome the opportunity to put our substantial resources into getting a judge to review the science and make a decision. We are confident there is only one outcome to this and that is that BTC has stolen the Bitcoin name for a Segwit technology alt coin.
Bitcoin.com has every right to also have its own opinion in this area and we support this 100 percent also. Nobody is in a better position to know bitcoin when they see it than bitcoin.com and Roger Ver who have been there since the very start.”
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
