According to the latest tweet by a software engineer working with Opennode, a company which claims to be the world’s first multi-layered bitcoin payment processor for businesses, Roger Ver had offered the company $1.24 million to switch their service to bitcoin cash but the company has openly rejected the offer calling bitcoin cash ‘inferior money’.
No amount of money will make us service inferior money. https://t.co/unBoSX2zpZ

Roger Ver is the founder of Bitcoin Cash and one of the earliest investor of bitcoin who is criticized by many cryptocurrency enthusiasts for misleading investors by glofifying bitcoin cash as the real bitcoin. Roger Ver also owns the bitcoin.com domain name.
Tim Draper, a well-known venture capital investor had recently invested 1,25 million into OpenNode which is a blockchain development company building bitcoin platforms on the lightning network. Roger Ver had recently posted a video criticizing the lightning network and offered to match Tim Draper’s investment into Opennode if the company switches to BCH rather than bitcoin.
Opennode had tweeted on their official Twitter page today thanking Roger Ver for his offer and openly rejecting it. According to Opennode, an open financial system is only possible with bitcoin:
Thanks for the $1.25MM offer @rogerkver, but we’re going to have to turn it down. Our vision of a better, more open financial system is only possible with Bitcoin. #bitcoin4everydayhttps://t.co/4tbavwnXXb
