Mining Company Sues Roger Ver & Group for BCH Hard Fork Price Manipulation

The American company Unitedcorp has filed a lawsuit against "bitcoin cash ABC" supporters. The company accuses the supporters of hiring mining power in order to control the bitcoin cash network. The Bitcoin Cash hard fork that took place several weeks ago resulted in two version of Bitcoin Cash, supported by two opposing parties: the Bitcoin ABC version, which uses the ‘BCH’ ticker symbol; and Bitcoin Cash Satoshi’s Version, which uses the ticker symbol ‘BCHSV.’ The lawsuit claimed that Roger Ver, bitcoin.com, Bitmain, and co-founder Jihan Wu, crypto exchange Kraken and founder Jesse Powell, and Bitcoin ABC developers Amaury Sechet, Shammah Chancellor and Jason Cox centralized bitcoin cash and manipulated the price during its contentious hard fork. Especially by dedicating mining power in theory assigned to mining the bitcoin blockchain to mining what was then referred to as the Bitcoin ABC chain.  After the split, supporters of both sides of bitcoin cash have been “fighting” against each other in order to become the biggest “bitcoin cash”.

UnitedCorp Sues Bitmain, Roger Ver and Kraken For Manipulation Over Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork

CoinSpeaker UnitedCorp Sues Bitmain, Roger Ver and Kraken For Manipulation Over Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork If it’s to believe the suit, Bitmain and co. conspired to hijack the network with an intent to centralize it, which goes against the core principles of BCH. According to the official press release, the parties are alleged to have taken part in a “well-planned scheme to take control of the Bitcoin Cash network for personal gain and which caused a global capitalization meltdown of the Bitcoin Cash network at the expense of others.“ The suit alleges that the defendants collectively engaged in unfair methods of competition and through a series of unconscionable, deceptive and unfair practices, manipulated the Bitcoin Cash network for their benefit and to the detriment of UnitedCorp and other Bitcoin Cash stakeholders. The statement says: “UnitedCorp believes that the defendants colluded to effectively hijack the Bitcoin Cash network after the November 15, 2018 scheduled software update with the intent of centralizing the network – all in violation of the accepted standards and protocols associated with Bitcoin since its inception.” The suit seeks injunctive relief against the defendants to prevent them from continuing ongoing actions against the Bitcoin Cash network and to prevent them from doing so in the future. It also seeks compensatory damages with a quantum to be determined at trial. Bitcoin Cash is one of the most important cryptocurrency networks that has been established in recent years. It is used for peer-to-peer electronic cash system between parties on the Bitcoin Cash network which are executed through a network of decentralized public ledgers which confirm and maintain the records of these digital transactions on a blockchain in a highly cryptographic environment. The BCH hard fork happened on the 15th of November, splitting the community into two main camps: Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV. The defendants of the suit are all major stakeholders of the ABC camp. The two sides have torn into each other on Twitter with Craig Wright, the self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto and leader of the SV camp, calling Roger Ver an “enemy”, who “hates bitcoin.” The Allegations Keep Piling Up Once the Bitcoin ABC rule set was established, it became the dominant chain and as the rented hashing was withdrawn, it was no longer contributing to the Bitcoin Cash network. UnitedCorp alleges that the use of computational hashing power did not contribute to the network just prior, and then was withdrawn, shortly after the network upgrade was put in place. The purpose of that, was maintaining an artificially longer chain over the existing rule sets and was amounted to human manipulation for the purpose decentralizing the autonomous network. All of that, says the statement, was orchestrated by a small group of individuals and corporations. The statement also points out that the integrity and confidence in the network is in part based on this decentralization as well as the operating principle that no single person or entity is able to control the majority of the network. Since confirmation and recording of transactions on the blockchain is undertaken by “consensus” of network nodes, and since transaction ledgers are continuously being checked against each other, tampering with the ledgers is extremely difficult if not impossible since multiple ledgers would have to be tampered with in the same way and simultaneously. However if an entity controls more than 51% of a blockchain network, the network becomes susceptible to fraud including reversal of transactions and what is known as “double spending” or spending the same cryptocurrency more than once. UnitedCorp also alleges that a few days later on November 20th, the ABC development team planted a “poison pill” into the blockchain in the form of a “Deep Reorg Prevention” as well as other functionality in order to cement the control of the blockchain ledger. This intervention allows maintenance of control on future implementations and any related rule sets for future network upgrades. Benoit Laliberte, President of UnitedCorp said in the statement: “We are bringing this suit on behalf of UnitedCorp because we believe strongly in the value and integrity of democratic, distributed and decentralized blockchain networks which will become more important with time. In order to maintain confidence in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin Cash, no person or entity can be allowed to control them.” Lawry Trevor-Deutsch, VP of Corporate Affairs at UnitedCorp in a call with MarketWatch, said that it is pretty clear that’s what supposed to be a democratic process was not and that it was hijacked by the ABC camp. He added that it was clear the parties took control of more than 50% of the network during the upgrade. Roger Ver Still Positive on His Cryptocurrency Outlook Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe, on Tuesday, Ver touched various aspects of the ongoing crypto debate, including his outlook on cryptocurrencies, the threat of regulation, mainstream adoption and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). When asked about whether the market had reached a floor in the value of Bitcoin, seeing that the market had dropped almost 80% of its all-time high, Ver said he was unsure as the uncertainty of cryptocurrencies is what makes them exciting. “Nobody knows, and I think that’s the interesting thing about cryptocurrencies. Nobody knows whether it’s going up, down or sideways.” He, however, said that while things looked dire in the short-term, the long-term future of Bitcoin remains very bright. Ver went on to state that there are more awareness, attention, and events going on in the crypto ecosystem, and all of these shows that things are looking up. Just for a reminder, we already wrote about how Craig Wright’s Bitcoin SV hard fork off of BCH didn’t exactly pan out as he wanted and it seems that this coin isn’t really appealing to miners. When Wright formed an alliance with CoinGeek founder Calvin Ayre to launch a hostile takeover of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network, the two men predicted that their BCH implementation, Bitcoin SV (BSV), would quickly accrue near universal support among miners due to its allegedly miner-friendly protocol specifications. Wright went so far that in his tweet, he warned Bitcoin miners that, if they continue their support for the Roger Ver/Jihan Wu (Bitmain)-backed Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCH) over his Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) project, he would be looking to fund his side of any ensuing ‘hash war’ battle by selling off Bitcoins. The suit seeks relief against the defendants to stop their alleged sabotage of the BCH network now and in the future. Unsurprisingly, the lawsuit also seeks monetary compensation, the amount of which is to be determined at the trial.

BCH, we need to talk: what can be the main problem

'Bitcoin Cash may be hard forked in November. Two groups of developers can't agree on its features, releasing their own clients, Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV, incompatible with previous software.'

Brave Browser Confirmed as HTC Exodus’ Default Web Browsing App

HTC is resolved to win the race for the best blockchain phone on the market. Its commitment to the community seems to be genuine and not only have they bet on accepting payment exclusively in cryptocurrencies to promote their use but also decided to include third-party software that makes use of these technologies. In a tweet published a few hours ago by Mr. Brendan Eich, CEO of Brave Software, he expressed his satisfaction after confirming HTC’s decision to include Brave as the Exodus’ default web browser. We are very happy to have @Brave as default browser & to be working with HTC on their Exodus phone: https://t.co/J5WQrqODKa — BrendanEich (@BrendanEich) December 8, 2018 Brave Browser: Using Basic Attention Token (BAT) To Create a Better Internet Brave Browser uses blockchain technologies to improve the user experience and change the way content providers relate to consumers. The idea is to make browsing faster and more convenient by rewarding not only users for consuming content but also giving them the ability to benefit content creators. “Once you enable Brave Rewards, the Brave browser automatically and anonymously keeps track of sites each user visits. The more times that a user visits a site, the larger the proportion of the user’s monthly contribution is “ear-marked” for that content creator. When contributions for a content creator exceed $100.00 USD, an email is sent to both the webmaster of the site and the registered domain owner from your WHOIS information. The email explains how to verify the ownership of your website with Brave Software.” The token used by Brave Browser is the Basic Attention Token (BAT), a cryptocurrency that has recently gained considerable popularity, especially after the announcement that it has been supported by Coinbase to be traded on its platform. #brave the new browser from @BrendanEich @brave wants to reward users with #cryptocurrencies to see ads and make browsing cleaner and safer #DMT18 pic.twitter.com/eUnPFBjW6W — ralfscharnhorst (@RalfScharnhorst) December 6, 2018 Blockchain-Phones: The New Trend For its part, the HTC Exodus 1 Phone is a phone created by HTC with blockchain technology focused on those users who want to manage their crypto coins from their mobile phone without additional hardware. To do this, HTC developed its own hardware wallet with multi-asset support. The wallet is named Zion and runs on independent hardware embedded into the phone. The main competition of the HTC Exodus, is the Sirin Labs’ Finney Phone, a device that has similar features but runs under a proprietary Operating System developed as an Android fork.

Basic Attention Token [BAT]: Brave is now available as the default browser on HTC Exodus phone

In a recent tweet by Brendan Eich, the CEO and Co-Founder of Basic Attention Token [BAT] and Brave, announced that Brave has been made as the default browser on HTC Exodus phones. Tweet by Brendan Eich: “We are very happy to have @Brave as default browser & to be working with HTC on their Exodus phone” In October 2018, Brave introduced the newer version of the browser which is compatible with all Chrome extensions. This version was named as Brave 1.0, which is a desktop browser with 22% faster browsing speed compared to older versions of Brave. During this announcement, the team also mentioned that they were working on multi-core capacity on the browser speed, the performance of the browser on mobile devices etc. Recently, HTC announced Exodus 1 as their first cryptocurrency enabled smartphone. The phone provides a storage solution for cryptocurrencies and gives accessibility to blockchain-based applications. An Android application named Zion, which is separated from the operating system of the phone has the ability to store all the private keys of the users. A Redditor named jajarz says: “HTC is a dying company, but they are going all in on hardware the incorporates future developments like VR, and Crypto. If they pull this off theyll be the next Apple.” Another Redditor named Gromerando says: “HTC phones run on Android, having Brave as default browser will only prevent Google from getting ur browsing habits, only if Google is not the default search engine on the browser So don’t really see the excitement as Google will still be able to track your every move” Brendan Eich, who is also the Founder of JavaScript and the Co-Founder of Mozilla project created both the Brave browser and Basic Attention Token [BAT]. The cryptocurrency BAT is an ERC-20 utility token which is used for all the advertising purchases and revenue on the browser.
