Bitcoin Cash Obituaries - Seven Times Bitcoin Cash Was Declared Dead!

We are well aware of many in the crypto field and beyond claiming Bitcoin Cash is dead, while also striving in vain to explain how nobody is using Bitcoin Cash, the network is not developing, or having any users at all.

All this while the exact opposite is happening.

Often many popular figures from the BTC tribe will just claim anything just to make Bitcoin Cash look weak.

Requirements for a declaration of a publication as a Bitcoin Cash obituary:

  • A clear description that Bitcoin Cash is or will be worthless (presenting bitcoin cash as weak, shitcoin, obsolete, etc.).

  • The source (person, news media, social media account) that published the statement much have substantial traffic or views.

We will explore some of the top Bitcoin Cash obituaries and I’ll probably make a second part, as throughout the years we keep reading how nobody is using Bitcoin Cash and often meet aggression usually stemming from the side of the angry mob of BTC maximalists.

Number 1: "Bitcoin Cash is Dead"

By: Cobra, (Jan 18th, 2019) - BCH PRICE: $126

Link to Obituary: Twitter

Cobra always has his fair share of Bitcoin Cash interactions and it is charming he still brings up the blocksize issue sometimes in his tweets, since nobody notices him, except perhaps Tone Vays that often questions his devotion to Blockstream.

I read many of the comments in this Tweet and besides the realistic ones coming from a few people that have a professional approach and don't just claim nonsense, most of the responses were coming from straight-up bots and shill accounts agreeing with the Cobra assessment.

The part about leadership is also interesting since BCH used to have many aspiring leaders and malevolent dictators, but it became clear in two times that consensus and network robustness prevails the personal ambitions of malicious participants.

This comment below though, the guy got it right (thanks to Musk):

Number 2: "Bitcoin Cash Entering Death Spiral"

NewsBTC (Nov, 2018) - BCH Price ($117)

Link to Obituary: NewsBTC

The writer Davit Bayayan is striving with this article and surgically trying to make Bitcoin Cash considered worthless by his audience.

The Bitcoin Cash market is now moving into a bottomless abyss – a kind of death spiral – with no signs of investment confidence improving.

The price of Bitcoin Cash was $117 and this "author" at a crypto-news website, which at that time was attracting considerable traffic, pushed investors to sell (the bottom).

Comment from the Reddit post of newsbtc.

Number 3: "$BCH Bitcoin Cash chain is officially dead"

CoinDaily (Nov 18th, 2018) - BCH Price ($250)

Link to Obituary: Coindaily

There is not a lot to discuss with this one. This article seems to have as purpose to provoke and perhaps attract applause by BTC maximalism, but as expected it only contains trash-talk and irrelevant accusations.

It doesn't contain any solid writing skills, yet, it reached close to 3000 reads, so it made it to the list of obituaries.

Number 4: "Bitcoin Cash is fast because nobody uses it"

Tone Vays (Jan 20th, 2020) - BCH Price ($330)

Link to Obituary: Youtube

Tone Vays can only win a debate when he censors his guests on his YouTube channel. As with all previous debates that performed in a civilized manner, he didn’t stand a chance.

Tone Vays has been manipulating the public with his sketchy TA for years and the hypocrisy was real as during this discussion with Roger Ver he expressed the invalid argument that Bitcoin Cash is not used by anyone, thus the transactions are fast!

Number 5: "BCH is a nonscaling casino token not used by anyone."

Calvin Ayre (Nov, 25, 2021) - BCH Price ($618)

Link to Obituary: Twitter

Calvin Ayre got dozens of replies from Bitcoin Cash users, and an invitation to join noise.cash so he can find out firsthand how wrong this statement was.

Number 6: "BCHUSD perp swap is now live. Which shitcoin should ⁩ list next?"

Arthur Hayes (BitMex) (June 16th, 2020) - BCH Price ($237)

Link to Obituary: Twitter

Arthur Hayes, after years of manipulation and billions in his pockets, made from customers he called “degenerates”, is not an important figure any more in the crypto industry. “Shitcoin” simply means there is no future in this project, a term created by Bitcoiners in the early years when the first cryptocurrencies appeared. Right at that point, though, since almost everything was indeed just a poor replica of Bitcoin and the term was describing correctly the early crypto market.

Things have changed a lot since 2011-2013, though. Networks as Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash are (for different reasons) hosting tens of thousands of daily users. There is development and innovation, yet, (mostly) the BTC maximalists are blinded by the “number go up” narrative and short-term speculation, while missing the point which is progress.

Number 7: "BCH Is Dead"

Bob Loukas (Oct 8th, 2021) - BCH Price ($590)

Link to Obituary: Twitter

I don't think I've encountered this person before, yet, he doesn't make a convincing case and seems confused by putting Bitcoin Cash and BSV in the same bracket.

Definitely, an obituary though, since this guy manages to attract a lot of likes and comments in his Tweets and has about 150k followers on Twitter.

In Conclusion: We need More Obituaries

Source

In case you remember or have a link of a popular person, or account having expressed that Bitcoin Cash is dead, or not used by anyone, please link in the comments.

I had fun when I read the Calvin Ayre comment on Twitter and while I shun responding on social media, still this was an exception:

Of course, Bitcoin Cash is a diversified community and not just restricted to one platform, yet this example is irrefutable. Even in case noise.cash just has a 10% of these accounts active, this is 30,000 daily users of the Bitcoin Cash network.

I bet BSV would love to have something similar and its community would market it as a revolution in the crypto field. Which it is, of course, but I think that more people need to join from the BCH community and support it.

Reddit and Twitter are fine and the support to Bitcoin Cash coming from devs and various Bitcoin Cash fans is important and acknowledged. I feel everyone understands noise.cash is there to boost Bitcoin Cash and present it to a wider audience.

Anyway, I presented here some of the “obituaries", yet, there are hundreds more that need sorting out and better selection.

It is meant as an example of the hatred spilled against BCH by many folks that one way or another thought this approach was helping their interests.

This is worth-reading. I have learned so much as a newbie. BCH for me is still useful. It can turn your earnings to real money.

These individuals simply know how to guarantee counterfeit BTC and nothing. Their non-sense tweets are obviously by bots. What's more I generally blamed online media for oversight due to these kinds of poops. An extraordinary commendation for you. I'm somewhat in wonder where you got so old paper with this assertion. Awesome work dear companion.

They probably don't what it means to be dead, the dead can't move so why is a dead coin as they claim to make an impact in the crypto world.

BCH is growing at it pace and making the wave because of its potentials and that's the more reason why they see it as a competition. It is impossible not to have haters when you are doing fine, I hope those who spoke ill about BCH witness how it is going to turn things around by setting the world free and fulfilling the dreams of Satoshi.

These people just know how to claim fake BTC and nothing. Their non-sense tweets are of course by bots. And I always accused social media of censorship because of these types of shits. A great applause for you. I am kinda in wonder where you got so old newspaper with this statement. Wonderful work dear friend.

Thanks Zak. I remembered some of these since I am in crypto since about mid-2017. I was reading a lot but couldn't actually decide. There is a lot of hatred reproduced as part of misleading the public on Bitcoin Cash.

People like you here are enough to defend BCH. All shits in BTC can't face us because we always talk on logic base.

This will help people to stop spreading bad news about the BCH. BCH is very important and even has more qualities than BTC. “Bring Bitcoin Cash Home”

Fun read. Your chronicle points out the straight fact that any product survives in the market if it gives value to the consumer. Bitcoin Cash has been pouring value to the consumers. It is also making tech innovations for improvements and positively impacting the market. Its life is bubbling to grow.

I hope people will stop spreading hatred towards the BCH. I mean after all BCH is way more important as an online wallet, though it's kinda volatile.

It is not about the price, but if you look closer, 8/10 of these were posted when price tanked and found support. Maybe some are playing games often. When BCH price rises they are just scared and consider when to buy.
