Charlie Lee uncovered that he doesn’t like the term ‘Bitcoin Cash‘ due to the confusion it makes in the community, with a few people alluding to it as the first Bitcoin [BTC]. He stated:

“For language, confusion is bad. If a merchant says I said Bitcoin and the person buying whatever product says, you said Bitcoin Cash and the merchant will be like, I said Bitcoin and Cash. Is that what you mean? And then it gets confusing. And if the sender sends Bitcoin Cash, the merchant didn’t get it because he only accepts Bitcoin. It’s just not good for communication.”

Charlie Lee further included that an individual from the community recommended to term Bitcoin Cash as ‘BCash’ due to the confusion. This was trailed by Roger Ver guaranteeing that changing in terminology was a “deliberate online networking control crusade”.  Roger Ver kept on saying that the Bitcoin community purposely registered Bitcoin Cash as BCash on Reddit, Twitter, and other platforms.

Roger Ver stated:

“It was an intentional effort to have the name of Bitcoin Cash become BCash and to steer all people that were looking into that particular fork or that particular version of Bitcoin.”

In light of this announcement, Charlie Lee talked about endeavoring to proliferate Bitcoin Cash as Bitcoin. He stated:

“On the other side, there is a campaign to steer Bitcoin Cash to Bitcoin. And to confuse people to saying, from to saying Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin. From Bitcoin’s Twitter account to saying Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin”

Roger Ver reacted by saying that he isn’t associated with the Bitcoin Twitter handle. He proceeded to state that the community on the internet trust that he is associated with the account regardless of him not owning or paying for the account. This was trailed by Charlie Lee expressing that he doesn’t trust that Roger Ver is associated with the Twitter account.

Roger Ver additionally solicited Charlie Lee’s definition from Bitcoin, to which he expressed that it was “what most of the general population” thought. He additionally expounded by giving a case of word ‘Crypto’ and how it was called cryptography preceding the landing of cryptocurrency. As indicated by Charlie Lee, time changes a considerable measure of things and it was critical to pursue the agreement. He included:

“So if you stick to the old definition of crypto, you can confuse people and that’s not good. So, if Bitcoin Cash eventually does become Bitcoin then everyone will call that Bitcoin and not Bitcoin Cash.”

As per Roger Ver, the genuine Bitcoin was the one that fulfilled the hidden major characteristics which were said in the Bitcoin whitepaper. The major characteristics were: P2P Electronic Cash Framework, Low Expenses, Quick Installments, Solid Installments, On Chain Scaling, Non-Reversible Installments, Chain of computerized marks, Operation Codes Empowered, SHA-256. Roger Ver expressed that Bitcoin [BTC] neglected to fulfill eight of these criteria, though Bitcoin Cash [BCH] neglected to fulfill one criterion.
