Bitcoin.org takeover attempt – Bitcoin Core removes “Bitcoin.org” from main software client

Some drama in Bitcoin land. Wait– that’s like every day.

Bitcoin.org removed from Bitcoin Core’s BTC “Bitcoin” Core client.

Does Adam Back know what decentralization is?

It started with this:

Adam Back trying really hard to get Cobra Bitcoin to transfer ownership of Bitcoin.org (so Adam can have more control over it)

The lead maintainer of Bitcoin.org is being harassed by CEO Adam Back of Blockstream to give up the domain and transfer it over. After refusing to comply, Bitcoin Core began pushing merges that remove linking to Bitcoin.org from the wallet.

Theymos doens’t have control over the bitcoin.org domain:

This means Cobra-Bitcoin has senior control over theymos.

As reddit user “jessquit” put it so well:
https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/92tqn8/list_of_scams_according_to_bitcoin_core/

According to Bitcoin Core:
– The bitcoin.com website is a scam
– Now, The bitcoin.org website is a scam
– The @bitcoin Twitter handle is a scam
– The r/btc subreddit is a scam
– The whitepaper written by Satoshi Nakamoto is a scam
– Bitcoin Cash is a scam
– Early supporters of Bitcoin, including Roger Ver, Coinbase, Gavin Andresen, Mike Hearn, etc., are scammers

Pretty soon, you have to take a step back and look at whether every single person around you is the scammer, or if it’s you.
