Battle for Bitcoin Cash Name Concludes as Calvin Ayre Seeks “Permanent Split”



Bitcoin Cash SV (BCH SV) advocate Calvin Ayre has avowed that the coin “no longer want the name Bitcoin Cash [BCH].”

“Bitcoin SV is the original Bitcoin not the original Bitcoin Cash.”

Ayre urges on Bitcoin Cash ABC – the Roger Ver-backed coin made in BCH’s recent hard fork – to “permanently split” the two chains for a “win-win solution.”

The author also charged advocates of both Bitcoin, which he calls “Segwit BTC” in the article, and Bitcoin Cash of having “tinkered it [Bitcoin] to death.” In particular, according to Ayre, Bitcoin and BCH ABC – which now has gained the title of Bitcoin Cash – have “abandoned Bitcoin’s core principles by abandoning Nakamoto consensus and trust in miners’ Proof of Work.”

Ayre settles by saying that he hopes that pushing forward as a separate coin “can be the end of this episode” and that he has called on his team to “start working with everyone” to release Bitcoin SV as an sovereign coin from Bitcoin Cash.

The recent hard fork, or update, of the Bitcoin Cash network split the community into two divisions, those who support Bitcoin Cash SV and those who back Bitcoin Cash ABC, which seek to update the network in various different ways. A third, so-called “neutral” camp, called Bitcoin Unlimited, was also generated.
