Bitcoin Twitter Handle With 1 Million Followers Renounces Bitcoin Cash
@Bitcoin switches from Bitcoin.com to Bitcoin.org
@Bitcoin has almost one million followers, yet its name has formed a misnomer for years. Instead of promoting Bitcoin, the account has long maligned it in favor of altcoin Bitcoin Cash (BCH) after allegedly falling into the hands of major proponent, Roger Ver.
Ver denied any involvement with the account last year, while suggesting he knew its real owner.
Now, Ver appears even less interested in its fate, according to his response to a call for help on Subreddit r/BTC.
“Roger claimed in the past that he knows the current owner of the handle. So, he either must know what happened with the account or there was a fallout between them. Yet he doesn’t reveal any information and lets his employees run rampant on r/btc with conspiracy theories instead,” it reads.
Community smells a Bitcoin rat
Other social media sources remained skeptical.
“Clearly it’s been sold at least once before. They are just trying to make the account more valuable. They are either responsible for leading the account to bcashers or they are borrowing the account now. I’m keeping them blocked,” the account for information resource Bitcoin-Only.com concluded on Tuesday.
“I have no proof of this, but I think the owner of @bitcoin must have had a romantic relationship with Roger Ver and recently broke up with Roger. That’s the only thing that can explain why @bitcoin stopped supporting BCH,” he tweeted.
