Bitcoin.com Executive Chairman, prominent Bitcoin Cash (BCH) evangelist and self-acclaimed foremost investor of Bitcoin startups, Roger Ver, has come out to state that neither Ver nor Bitcoin.com endorsed the controversial Bitcoin Cash Miner Tax.
Roger Ver Removes Himself From Miner Tax Proposal
Roger Ver, via a YouTube video on February 16, 2020, stated that he was not in support of the debated 12.5 bitcoin cash miner’s tax. Ver, referring to the initial tax proposal with his name appearing at the end of the document, declared that it was done without his consent.
In an attempt the ‘set the record straight’, the Bitcoin.com executive said:
“I didn’t sign this. There was definitely discussion about this, there was talk and I thought the talks were still ongoing; when all of a sudden this was released with my name at the bottom. I don’t think it was released out of intentional malice…I think there was just a lack of communication, lots of time zones, lots of different languages.”
In January, a document was released that would see miners taxed 12.5 percent to fund BCH infrastructure development. However, the proposal was heavily criticized by miners and investors, which led Ver to state that a greater part of the BCH community would have to agree with the proposal.
