Roger Ver, an early Bitcoin investor, is trying to convince the cryptocurrency community that Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin, fulfilling the original vision of Satoshi Nakamoto. As part of his efforts, he recently published a quote from Erik Voorhees, CEO of popular crypto-exchange ShapeShift, hinting that Voorhees supports his Bitcoin Cash agenda.
Although in the past Voorhees promoted a Bitcoin fork to double the block size, he isn't playing ball with Ver in promoting Bitcion Cash. He responded on Twitter:
"Roger - please stop referencing me to back up your opinion that Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin. It isn't. Bitcoin is the chain originating from the genesis block with the highest accumulated proof of work. The Bitcoin Cash fork failed to gain majority, thus it is not Bitcoin."
