Mining Pool CEO: Craig Wright is a “pawn” for Bitcoin SV, Calvin Ayre is said to be in charge

Jiang Zhuoer, the CEO of BTC.TOP, one of the largest Bitcoin mining pools, announced that Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre had planned to split from the Bitcoin Cash network long before the matter was publicly discussed.

In a Reddit post that shares part of an interview with Zhuoer, the Chinese entrepreneur pointed out that Craig Wright is only “seemingly” the leader of the Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) community. He claims that the self-proclaimed Bitcoin inventor is just “a pawn” and that online gambling billionaire Calvin Ayre is actually the real boss of BSV.

Craig Wright reportedly has no stake in nChain or CoinGeek

According to Zhuoer, Wright is “by name” the chief scientist at nChain, a London-based blockchain-focused research and development company. The Australian computer scientist does not hold any shares in BSV-related companies such as nChain and CoinGeek, notes Zhuoer.

He reveals that Ayre is CSW’s primary backer and that the casino tycoon is focused on making money on the Canadian stock exchange through CoinGeek, a crypto news site that was allegedly acquired by Squire Mining for $ 45 million in December 2018 to earn.

Zhuoer further notes that CoinGeek develops its own mining machines and operates its crypto mining operations independently through Squire Mining. The news media company also controls the Bitcoin SV chain, which many analysts claim is highly centralized.

Ayre wants complete control of Bitcoin SV

The BSV chain had not been split off from BCH because the former wanted to pursue a different development schedule, emphasized Zhuoer. He believes BSV parted ways with Bitcoin Cash because CoinGeek wanted full control of the cryptocurrency’s blockchain.

Zhuoer also mentioned that the and domains were registered for several months before Wright publicly began shooting Roger Vers’s Bitcoin Cash ABC team. In addition, Wright purposely created tension between supporters of ABC and BSV to split the Bitcoin cash chain, he claims.

According to Zhuoer:

“[CSW] some very extreme claims that the BCH community made [would not] accept and then incite some parishioners by making extremist claims, just like the Nazis [did] extreme propaganda and incitement to split off from the BCH. “

Bitcoin SV hard fork increases the block size

Following on from some of the extreme claims, Zhuoer mentioned that Wright proposed increasing Bitcoin SV’s block size to 2GB, which could create major technical problems and adversely affect any blockchain network.

Oops! $ BSV has experienced another reorganization, this time 6 (six!) Consecutive blocks were orphaned (# 578640–578645), this chain contained a 128 MB block # 578644? that even 6 confirmations are not enough? ‍♂️

BitMEX researchers found that prior to the activation of the Quasar hard fork, the Bitcoin SV chain was rolled back two blocks, increasing the block size of the cryptocurrency to 2GB on July 24th. BitMEX’s research team also reported that one of the orphaned BSV blocks. was about 62.6MB in size.

Wright’s behavior becomes a “heavy liability”

Increasing the block sizes in this way also increases the likelihood of chain reorganization and, according to analysts, may lead to a different fork.

Zhuoer confirmed that he does not support BSV’s development path as Wright’s extreme claims are intended to create tension among members of the crypto community. He believes that Wright’s actions and behavior will become a “heavy burden” for the future development of Bitcoin SV.
