Making a case for Bitcoin Cash

‘Bitcoin Jesus’ claims that the only reason why the O.G. coin can be act as an asset for wealth preservation is because it’s completely useless as cash. In such a way, he justifies the existence of its spin-off, Bitcoin Cash, that is supposed to drive merchant acceptance.

In all fairness, BCH did witness some considerable progress in the adoption department. Ver previously announced that the controversial cryptocurrency would be accepted by “thousands” of physical shops in South Korea.

However, BCH still has a relatively tiny market cap of $5.7 bln compared to Bitcoin’s $192.6 bln.

Losing influence on Twitter 

As reported by U.Today, Bitcoin Cash’s biggest proponent was recently ridiculed by crypto Twitter after the owner of @bitcoin suddenly turned his back on the big block camp. The owner of the account with almost 1 mln followers suddenly deleted all pro-BCH tweets.

At least, it’s clear now that Ver doesn’t own the account that holds sway over CT, but the reason behind this U-turn remains a mystery.
