The SegWit2x recent annulment caused a storm of emotions on the Internet. Bitcoin Core developer called Eric Voorhees CEO ShapeShift "gready tw*t".

Initially, having responded to the news about the cancellation of hardfork, Eric Lombroso wrote that the community will never forget how a handful of company executives tried to circumvent the technical expertise and impose a "consensus" through brute force, propaganda and planned campaigns in social networks.

Among the many responses to this tweet, Eric Voorhees' comment also appeared.

The answer of Eric Lombroso was fast and rough.

He also added that at some stage he believed that mr. Voorhees was really fighting for financial independence and freedom from corrupt banks.

Recall, Eric Vorhees was one of six persons who signed yesterday's letter, which spoke about the refusal to host the SegWit2x hardfoot.

In May 2017, key players in the bitcoin industry, including Bitmain, Bitfury, F2Pool, Genesis Mining, ShapeShift, Xapo, etc., signed the so-called New York Segregated Witness (SegWit)  activation agreement behind the closed doors about the hardfork activation. But Bitcoin Core developers didn't sign this document.

The People's Bank of China has returned to criticism of cryptocurrencies amid a worsening economic situation in the world.

On March 22, the regulator published a large-scale warning in its WeChat account under the heading “Protection of the rights and interests of consumers of financial services”. It describes three ways in which cryptocurrency service providers can mislead consumers.

First of all, the amount of fraud transactions with bots is serious. The average turnover rate of the top three overseas crypto currency exchanges is much higher than that of foreign licensed exchanges. Second, market manipulation exists in these exchanges where forced leveraged trading eventually causes the exchanges to explode. Third, money laundering is a big issue.

In addition, the Chinese Central Bank calls the opinion that Bitcoin may serve as a protective asset, erroneous. The regulator indicates its high volatility and recommends that citizens not follow the example of other investors and refuse to participate in cryptocurrency trading.
