Just a reminder: r/btc is a Bitcoin CASH subreddit, NOT a Bitcoin subreddit!

I think this is incredibly important for people to know, especially for all the newcomers coming into this space recently!

Bitcoin Cash is the result of a hard fork that occurred in 2017, mainly due to conflicting opinions on implementing a larger block size (which would increase transaction throughput on the ledger). BTC and BCH share the genesis block (the first mined block) and all transaction history leading up to the fork, but are completely different projects since then.

You will find many posts in r/btc bashing Bitcoin, or “Bitcoin Core” as they call it, and claiming that Bitcoin Cash is the “real Bitcoin”. This is patently false, however, and very deceptive, especially because their subreddit uses the acronym for Bitcoin. Furthermore, the website “Bitcoin.com” is run by the founder of Bitcoin Cash, Roger Ver.

This is in no way bashing Bitcoin Cash. I think it’s an interesting project, that has utility to be a good means of exchange, HOWEVER, I do not want to see newcomers being deceived into investing their money into a fork (one of many, mind you) of Bitcoin, when they wanted the real thing.
