Roger Vera's pool refused to support a “tax” for Bitcoin Cash miners

The Bitcoin.com mining pool refused to support the proposal to transfer 12.5% ​​of development rewardsBitcoin Cash cryptocurrencies.

According to information on Bitcoin.com, the mining pool “will not support any plan if there is no agreement in the ecosystem that minimizes the risks of chain separation.”

“Bitcoin.com will not risk splitting the chain or changing the underlying economy, - representatives of the pool say. -Any proposal requires as many economically significant participants as possible - companies, exchanges, miners"

A 12.5% ​​“tax” for Bitcoin miners last week was proposed by Jiang Zhuer, CEO of the largest cryptocurrency ecosystem pool.

Then the proposal was supported by other major Bitcoin Cash mining pools, including Antpool, BTC.com, ViaBTC. Together with BTC.TOP, they account for more than a third of the cryptocurrency computing power.

Currently, the “apostate” Bitcoin.com accounts for 5.5% of the total hashrate of the fourth cryptocurrency capitalization:

Jiang Zhuer said that despite controversy andlack of support from some community members, miners will not abandon their plan. It is expected that the new rule can be established along with the next update of the Bitcoin Cash protocol in May.

Popular commentator Whale Panda called the decision “a centralized totalitarian regime with a 51% threat of attack."

Recall that in May 2019, BTC.com and BTC.top carried out a 51% attack to cancel the transaction of another miner who tried to gain access to funds not belonging to him.
