Come at the king, best not miss. With only 11% of BTC's hash rate and dropping, BCash is increasingly vulnerable to 51% attacks. https://t.co/Fa8y77Ldt7

Amidst the ceaseless twitter scams, one positive has emerged from crypto twitter recently. @Bitcoin has been reported by the bitcoin community so many times the account has been restricted and followers have been lost as a result.
Despite all the scammers and shadow banning, something positive happened on Twitter… Can you imagine paying a lot of money for a Twitter account to push your false narrative and that ends up like this: pic.twitter.com/0FWJg6d1d5

Not only is this fraudulent but it actually has a very tangible negative consequence. The most obvious being the huge cases of investors sending Bitcoin to BCash wallets. Bitcoin.com even lists BCash wallets as defaults, needles to to say they are not refunding those who send Bitcoin to their BCash wallets. Coinbase even had to place an alert on their app as they were receiving so many support tickets.
Roger Ver was an early investor in Bitcoin and has invested in many crypto focused companies. However, he has taken the minority side of the scaling debate and is in full support of BCash over Bitcoin. Despite storing a significant amount of his wealth in Bitcoin still. Unfortunately for the entire crypto space he is using his significant influence as the owner of Bitcoin.com and its twitter account to spread misinformation and outright lie.
Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin, as envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto. This peer-to-peer electronic cash system enables fast, free & reliable transactions for both merchants and users.https://t.co/kb0rCyXpLR

Thankfully the account has been temporarily banned due to the numerous people that have reported the account for spam and fraud.
raise your hand if you reported that account 🙋♀️

The Bitcoin vs BCash debate has been all consuming and Rogers antics. Roger’s recentantics include; supporting the crackpot theory that Craig Wright is Satoshi, claiming Bitcoin.com wallets storing the mnemonic seed in plain text is not a vulnerability, paying for social media accounts to promote BCash, paying for models to have ‘BCHPLS’ drawn on their chests, attacking Andreas Antonopoulos’s financial decisions then taking the credit for making him a millionaire… This list only skims the surface of Roger’s questionable behaviour.
Roger starting the “CSW is Satoshi” propaganda again. https://t.co/9MFMGqxySA pic.twitter.com/AWJmz9wcdk

Perhaps the best solution would be to hand over control of @Bitcoin to one of the top crypto twitter shitposters @NeerajKA:
