A “community movement” that has grown to over 600 people in just two days is taking legal action against Bitcoin.com and its owner, Roger Ver, for intentionally inducing new users to buy Bitcoin Cash (BCH) instead of Bitcoin (BTC).
Bitcoin.com is undoubtedly an appreciated domain in the bitcoin area. It is likely that anyone interested in the world’s first and most valuable crypto currency will instinctively type it into their browser or immediately see it as a top result in a Google search.
The logos are not only very similar and even have the same color (the BCH logo is green on most platforms to avoid confusion), but Bitcoin.com is the only site called Bitcoin (BTC).
The name Bitcoin Core refers to the Bitcoin software client (also known as Satoshi client), which onlinebetrug was originally simply called “Bitcoin” but later renamed to distinguish it from the Bitcoin network and currency. Anyone not familiar with the difference between the two will probably be deceived.
One user wrote in the telegram group that it is like selling gold and giving customers a piece of coal instead. Earlier this week Bitcoin.com was changed to present Bitcoin Cash as the true Bitcoin. Especially the Block – Explorer has been changed to show bitcoin with BCH and Bitcoin Core (BTC) in the drop-down menu. Bitcoin Cash deliberately refrained from “cash” in order to refer to the “true” bitcoin.
This change has caused turmoil in the Bitcoin community. It was also a controversial topic within the Bitcoin Cash community, many of whom believe that Bitcoin Cash can compete on its own instead of trying to steal the name Bitcoin.
