Altcoin News | UnitedCorp sues Bitmain, Roger Ver and Kraken for Alleged BCH Hard Fork Manipulation


According to a press release, United American Corp has filed a lawsuit against Bitmain, Roger Ver, and Kraken Bitcoin Exchange. UnitedCorp has blamed that the defendants have plotted to take control of Bitcoin Cash ( BCH ) network.

The suit was filed in U.S District Court for Southern District of Florida states that unfair methods were used to manipulate the BCH network.

The release further specifies:

“UnitedCorp believes that the defendants colluded to effectively hijack the Bitcoin Cash network after the November 15, 2018 scheduled software update with the intent of centralizing the network — all in violation of the accepted standards and protocols associated with Bitcoin since its inception.”

The BCH network’s update on November 15th divided the community into two main camps. The enterprise further states that perpetrators took control of the network right after the upgrade. This apparently led to adoption of Bitcoin ABC rule sets.

UnitedCorp also alleges that on Nov. 20 the Bitcoin ABC development team put a “poison pill” into the blockchain by way of a “Deep Reorg Prevention” in order to strengthen control over the blockchain ledger. That allegedly enables maintenance of control on implementations for future network updates.

The suit seeks relief against the defendants, asking to prevent them from ongoing actions against the BCH network.  Additionally the enterprise seeks compensation, the value of which it claims will be determined at trial.
