After the deadly hash-wars between Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV teams, which eventually led to the entire cryptocurrency market downfall, Roger Ver and Bitmain along with others have been alleged to take control of the Bitcoin Cash network for personal gains.
“What is alleged to have been a well-planned scheme to take control of the Bitcoin Cash network for personal gain and which caused a global capitalization meltdown of the Bitcoin Cash network at the expense of others”
The lawsuit is against Roger Ver, Bitcoin.com, Bitmain and Kraken and seeks damages and injunctive relief for the victims. The lawsuit alleges that:
“in unfair methods of competition and through a series of unconscionable, deceptive and unfair practices, manipulated the Bitcoin Cash network for their benefit and to the detriment of UnitedCorp and other Bitcoin Cash stakeholders”.
It is furthermore alleged that after the hard fork of Bitcoin Cash, on 20th November, 2018, the Bitcoin ABC team planted a “poison pill” into the blockchain code in order to remain in control of the network at all times. This also makes Bitcoin ABC a centralized blockchain.
