For those of you who were not present at the London #BitcoinRebirth party, the ‘new’ Bitcoin Cash (BCH) logo was unveiled in a retro Streetfighter video to 200 BCH developers, miners, merchants and media.
The new logo has already caused controversy in the old segwit bitcoin community as the key message is simply: Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin.
Party host Calvin Ayre, owner of CoinGeek; the news portal and biggest mining operator in BCH, explained: “BCH fulfils the original mandate of Bitcoin – a low transaction fee digital currency – the segwit coin does not. So the statement is correct: Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin.
“Bitcoin will fulfil its destiny to bring more economic freedom to the disadvantaged of the world. Bitcoin will bring banking to the unbanked and allow new business models to improve the quality of life for everyone.”
