Out of spite

This all comes from an alleged screenshot on Stefan Rust’s social media, where he explained the strange reason behind listing the HEX token.

As many of you will already know, the tension between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash has been going on for many a year now. Bitcoin.com is a big supporter of Bitcoin Cash as they believe that BCH is the main (or core) version of the protocol. 

HEX

As a little bit of background on the HEX token, let’s discuss its red flags that have been cropping up in numbers in recent times. The first flag to start waving was when documents for HEX appeared bearing the promise of “10,000x gains in 2.5 years”. Richard Heart, the head and founder of HEX was revealed to actually be a notorious scammer dubbed the ‘Spam King’. Heart’s name came from making a fortune in the early 00s through illegal spam attacks on unsuspecting victims.

Heart actually has a YouTube channel where he talks about crypto and blockchain and occasionally has guests appear for a chat. Roger Ver, the former head of Bitcoin.com was on the channel where Ver broached the subject of HEX being a scam.

Heart said:

“Sure, because it looks like a scam. It does look like a scam. You have to dig in. You know what else looks like a scam? Bitcoin - this s**t goes down 85% every three years. F**king Dogecoin only went down a few percent more. So what’s a better store of value, Dogecoin or Bitcoin?”

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. For more news on this and other crypto updates, keep it with CryptoDaily!
