UnitedCorp Brings Bitmain, Roger Ver, and Kraken to Court for Suspected Hard Fork Manipulation

United American Corporation (UnitedCorp) filed a suit against Bitmain, Kraken Exchange, Bitcoin.com, and Roger Ver, et al. for exploiting specialized techniques to maneuver BCH to their own advantage

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…

UnitedCorp Press Release

Miami’s UnitedCorp, a blockchain-based telecommunications company, announced on 6 December that it submitted a case against Ver and the firms it suspects to be involved in an unfair and misleading scheme to take hold of the BCH network, after the hard fork, for their own gain. UnitedCorp perceived that the effort to hijack the network was the cause of the meltdown, detrimental to the company and other BCH stakeholders.

The suit was filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

The dispute seeks for the court to prohibit and prevent the defendants from continuing ongoing activities hostile to the BCH network. The telecommunications company also seeks compensation for the damages inflicted. The amount will be determined during trial.

The Premise of the Lawsuit

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…

Benoit Laliberte, President of UnitedCorp

After the 15 November hard fork, UnitedCorp maintains that Ver et al. promptly took control of the network through ‘rented hashing’ which is against the fundamentals of the blockchain. Rented hashing is the interim deployment or redirection of computing power to gain governance of the network.

Bitcoin ABC became the leading chain by the time the rule set was laid and rented computational power was lifted. UnitedCorp supposes the leased hash power’s purpose was to artificially sustain a longer chain for ABC.

By 20 December, it is said that ABC’s team put a ‘Deep Reorg Prevention’ in the blockchain to solidify control over the ledger.

The press release emphasized that no individual or entity should be permitted to gain control of a cryptocurrency network.

Bitcoin Cash [BCH] advocate Roger Ver shows his support for Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht again

The cryptocurrency ecosystem has seen quite a few users who were prosecuted for using the decentralized ecosystem for nefarious practices. One standout example of this was Ross Ulbricht, who was jailed in connection with the Silk Road scandal in 2013. He was convicted of money laundering and major computer hacks and was worth a whopping $28.5 million at the time of his arrest. Since then, many proponents from the field of digital assets have come out in support of Ulbricht, claiming that the regulations on which he was arrested were flawed or flimsy. Roger Ver, the Chief Executive Officer of Bitcoin.com and a major Bitcoin Cash [BCH] advocate, has been a supporter of Ross Ulbricht for a long time and recently declared his support again with a tweet. In the message, he had tagged Donald Trump, asking for Ulbricht’s release, while also sharing a message from Tim Draper, who supported the Silk Road Founder. Tim Draper said: “Free Ross! We need that guy in the economy. That’s all there is to it. He is clearly one of the great entrepreneurs in the world. He should be pardoned, he should get out of jail.” Draper isn’t the only famous personality in the crypto-verse who has supported Ulbricht in the past, as Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin [LTC], had also come in support of the jailed crypto-enthusiast. Lee had earlier stated: “Whatever you think of Silk Road, Ross Ulbricht, creator of Silk Road, does not deserve a life sentence without the possibility of parole.” The Free Ross movement has been ongoing for a long time now, with the hashtag #freeross becoming a symbol against oppressive prosecution. Roger Ver had spoken about Ulbricht multiple times earlier and had even written a letter to Ulbricht. The CEO had discussed the issue with Gabriel Cardona on a Bitcoin.com episode too. He said in the episode: “Basically, Ross Ulbricht is the person that made Bitcoin start to become popular to being with. He made a useful platform that people started to use. Silk Road was useful, so, people started to use it and that’s what kicked-off this whole ecosystem.”   The post Bitcoin Cash [BCH] advocate Roger Ver shows his support for Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht again appeared first on AMBCrypto.
