Ethereum co-creator Vitalik Buterin has slammed the organisers of the Deconomy conference for giving a platform to Bitcoin SV “shills”.
The event took place this week in Seoul, South Korea. It included a discussion panel involving various Bitcoin SV proponents. One of them, Ella Qiang, retweeted a photo of herself and others “being good” during a talk by Buterin.
Buterin, meanwhile, had this to say.
This, somewhat predictably, drew a flurry of responses, some of which were supportive, some of which were critical.
The social media fireworks built on a feisty Deconomy 2018, when a video of Buterin calling alleged Bitcoin creator Craig Wright a fraud went viral in the crypto community.
During a panel discussion, entitled ‘Bitcoin, Controversy over Principle’, featuring Roger Ver, Samson Mow, and Wright, a high profile supporter of Bitcoin Cash, Buterin said: “Given that he (Wright) makes so many non-sequiturs and mistakes, why is this fraud allowed to speak at this conference?”
