Bitfinex announces implementation of burn mechanism for removing LEO tokens from circulation


In the latest edition of Magical Crypto Friends, Blockstream’s Samson Mow, CSO of Blockstream, criticized Bitcoin’s fork coins and their influential proponents.

Whale Panda, one of the most popular influencers in the crypto-ecosystem, addressed a myriad of subjects on the episode. One such subject was Bitcoin Cash [BCH] reversing a malicious entity’s transaction via a 51% attack. He started out by addressing the much-hyped fork coin attack and said,

“.. after the hard fork someone claimed the segwit coins and two [mining] pools and colluded took them for themselves to redistribute them to righteous owners”

Countering the former’s use of the term “righteous owner,” Samson Mow, who has been critical of Bitcoin Cash, took a shot at the community and added,

“How do you even know who owned them? [..] they just they gave the coins back under the rule of Finders Keepers”

According to Whale Panda, the attack highlighted how vulnerable the Bitcoin hard fork coin is to attacks. Following the statement, Mow called Roger Ver, CEO of Bitcoin.com and popular BCH enthusiast, a “scammer,” adding that the “only thing that matters is that BCash is stupid.”

He further explained that the entire reversal of transactions was possible in BCH because of “low hashrate” and would not have happened in Bitcoin Core [BTC]. Agreeing with Mow’s statement, Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin [LTC] said,

“.. that’s true because if Bitcoin Cash, really does like die from this they can just go back to mine Bitcoin and they wouldn’t really lose their cash cow, right. Their miners won’t be worthless, but if they did this on Bitcoin and really hurt Bitcoin’s value, it’s gonna hurt their profitability by quite a bit.”
