BSVs’ Child Abuse Allegations and ‘Faketoshi’ Claims Resurface Again in Tweets By XMR’s Lead Developer

Riccardo Spagni, the lead developer of Monero has recently posted tweets about the lead proponents of Bitcoin SV (Satoshi Vision). Bitcoin SV was forked from Bitcoin Cash (which is yet another fork of Bitcoin) in November 2018. The Hard Fork had caused tremendous volatility in the market while the miners were left with the dilemma of choosing sides.

Three months down the line, the price of BCH ($130 at 10 00 UTC on 11  March 2019) is almost twice that of BSV ($66.5), the hashing power of BCH is also greater than BSV. Moreover, the lead proponents of BSV including Roger Ver, Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre have always made controversial news space of cryptocurrency markets.

Riccardo’s Pranks and ‘Anti-Feminist’ Allegations Against BSV Supporters

In his most recent tweet, Spagni pranked his followers and mocked Craig Wright over his claims of being the real ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’. What seemed like an authentic proof of Craig Wright being Satoshi later turned out to a ‘404 Error’ page with the message ‘NOT FOUND.’

Riccardo has also recently, retweeted and linked ‘sexual’ and ‘anti-feminist allegations’ on the infamous online casino owner and BSV supporter, Calvin Ayre. The allegations were made by an anonymous ‘Twitterati’ against Calvin Ayre’s conduct around women. Spagni went on to link the tweet to an older incident when pornographic data was discovered on BSV Blockchain.

While it is just light-hearted banter on Twitter, subsequent attacks on BSV supporters have continued to tarnish its image affecting its price in the short and long term.
