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.

Casa startup, specializing in the creation of secure storage systems for private keys, introduced a mobile bitcoin application Sats App, which makes it easy to manage Lightning-node.

Sats App is positioned as a non-custodial bitcoin wallet "with unique functions." According to Casa CEO Jeremy Welch, the SatsBack reward program will soon be launched, under which users will receive small amounts in BTC. For example, for connecting an application and a Casa Node device to each other, the user will receive 20,000 Satoshi.

Features are focused on increasing adoption of bitcoin and lightning nodes. You will be able to earn bitcoin if you don’t have a Casa node, but you will be able to earn bitcoin faster if you have a node.
