Bitcoin.com faces ramifications after recent misleading events
CoinMarketCap has quietly removed Bitcoin.com website from its Bitcoin [BTC] page yesterday without any notice. The major crypto price tracking site did not make any official announcement before or after the elimination of the website. The recent allegations stated that Bitcoin.com was misleading the users to buy Bitcoin Cash [BCH] instead of Bitcoin [BTC].
Roger Ver, a crypto investor, and major BTC turned BCH proponent is the founder of the media service and cryptocurrency wallet Bitcoin.com. The BTC fork led to the creation of BCH last year and the website launched a crypto wallet that automatically creates both BCH and BTC accounts but the default option displaying Bitcoin Cash. A group of pro-BTC users created a site to raise funds for the allegation lawsuit but failed to gain sufficient funds and had to refund the donations as well.
CoinMarketCap displayed Bitcoin.com as BTC’s website 2 until last week and refers Bitcoin.org as the single website listed for Bitcoin. While the Bitcoin’s website still offers users BCH as default giving second priority to BTC which is often confused with Bitcoin Core, BTC’s software client.
Roger Ver, however, continues to support BCH as he has been all this while:
“Bitcoin Cash is a better currency, and therefore a better store of value than Bitcoin Core.”

“Roger couldn’t keep paying them lol.”
Bitcoin Cash has been grabbing the spotlight with unpredictable price surges in the recent times and has slightly deviated towards the fall. Currently priced at $1640 which is still a great deal after 6% drop from yesterday.
On the other side is Bitcoin dangling around $9000 and leaving the investors waiting to see BTC hit $10k. The current trading value of BTC is $9,364 with a market cap of $159.3 billion after a minor 3.43% fall.
Digitize Coin tweeted:
“May 2018 will be the last time we see #bitcoin under $10,000 unless the flippening happens and #bitcoincash takes over. May 15th #BCH hardfork coming could we see a possible flippening?”
