‘Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin,’ Roger Ver and Calvin Ayre Declare

Bitcoin cash proponents Roger Ver and Calvin Ayre have announced a plan to use their influence and considerable wealth to rebrand bitcoin cash as “bitcoin”. Ver, an early bitcoin investor once nicknamed “Bitcoin Jesus”, has incurred the ire of much of the bitcoin community over the past several years, primarily due to his repeated support for contentious hard forks associated with the evolving block size debate. He owns and operates Bitcoin.com, a news and information outlet that critics claim gives new users the impression that it is an official Bitcoin resource.
