Roger Ver, one of the loudest proponents of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), thinks that there is little difference between Bitcoin (BTC) moonboys and those who are trying to cash in on the coronavirus pandemic. 

In a new tweet, he makes it clear that bulls angry with price-gouging mask sellers apparently have zero self-awareness.

Pot calling the kettle black?

Ver (a.k.a. “Bitcoin Jesus”) has been at loggerheads with Bitcoin maximalists ever since abandoning the cryptocurrency that started it all for its controversial fork back in 2017 to boost retail adoption. Recently, he lambasted them for only caring about the price to sell their BTC for fiat instead of focusing on undermining the power of world governments. 

With that being said, Roger himself doesn’t shy away from price talk. Back in 2011, he famously made a $10,000 bet that Bitcoin would outperform gold and silver at least 100 times. 

In his interview with CNBC, which aired in November 2019, Ver also made a wild claim that the BCH price could go up 1,000 times from where it was trading at that moment.
