The @Bitcoin Twitter handle has been under fire due to its continuous brigade against bitcoin. While sporting the bitcoin logo and handle, the account churns out pro-Bitcoin Cash tweets and resources. Bitcoin proponents argue that these paradoxical actions confuse blockchain newbies which, in turn, damages the overall industry.
Although the person behind the handle is unknown, many speculate that Roger Ver, arguably the most outspoken Bitcoin Cash supporter, is operating the account. However, Ver’s company, Bitcoin.com, has publicly contradicted the claim: “…no one at Bitcoin.com is in control of the account or exerting influence over it.”
While the identity of the handle operator remains unknown, the mystery continues to spark anger in the bitcoin community. And, it appears folks have had enough. WhalePanda, a member of the Magical Crypto Friends alongside Litecoin’s Charlie Lee and Monero’s Riccardo Spagni, is part of the group calling for account suspension.
