Samson Mow, former CSO at Blockstream and now chief executive officer at Jan3, has taken to the X/Twitter social media platform to share his thoughts on the recent address of his former boss, Adam Back, to Roger Ver.

These are two famous figures in the Bitcoin space. Back is a “Satoshi candidate” – a cypherpunk and cryptographer who corresponded with Satoshi Nakamoto before Bitcoin was launched.

Roger Ver used to be an early Bitcoin evangelist called “Bitcoin Jesus,” but he became disappointed in BTC and switched to advocating Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Recently, Ver has coauthored a book that claims that Bitcoin was “hijacked.”

Adam Back urges Ver to return to Bitcoin, Mow objects 

On March 17, Roger Ver announced on X/Twitter that he had coauthored a book on BTC entitled “Hijacking Bitcoin: The Secret History of BTC.” The second author here is Steve Patterson, host of Patterson in Pursuit podcast, who calls himself “a philosopher and author.”

The book explains Ver’s opinion that in the course of its development without Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin became corrupted. In 2017, Ver gave up on Bitcoin and switched to its hard fork Bitcoin Cash, believing that BCH’s larger blocks and its model overall is much closer to the original version of Bitcoin created by Nakamoto in 2009.

In general, originally Bitcoin was meant to be a P2P cash to oppose banks and the fiat money system after the harsh financial crisis of 2008-2009 caused by the U.S. mortgage market. Gradually after 2017, Bitcoin became favored by Wall Street, and this January, the Securities and Exchange Commission finally approved spot-based Bitcoin ETFs. Futures Bitcoin ETFs got the green light from the SEC in October 2021.

Now, Adam Back has urged Roger Ver to “be the prodigal son” and join the Bitcoin party. Back reminded Ver that a lot of upgrades have been made for Bitcoin, including Back’s Bitcoin Liquid Network.

Samson Mow has tweeted that he does not want Ver to come back to Bitcoin, saying that nothing good will come out of this. On Monday, he also commented on Roger Ver’s book’s title, stating: “Dedicated to the babies that died because of Bitcoin Core.”
