Well, yes and no. It is true that those behind Bitcoin.com want to call Bitcoin Cash the "real" Bitcoin. And they use "Bitcoin Core" to refer to Bitcoin. It would be better if these folks did not own that domain.

On the other hand their guide to buying Bitcoin, which includes a link to buying Bitcoin through a credit card (through Simplex which I assume they are partnering with), is for buying actual Bitcoin, not Bitcoin Cash.

Personally I favor Bitcoin over Bitcoin Cash, but Bitcoin Cash does not qualify as a "scam". It is a competitor.

People are going to have to get used to forks happening in this industry. Forks are a fundamental property of open source software and it is going to continue.

I disagree. If you fully read the blog, you will see how Roger Ver is trying to trick the newbies and making them think that Bitcoin has split into Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash. Why call it "Bitcoin Core" in the first place? Is he trying to make them believe that Bitcoin Cash also has legitimate claim to the Bitcoin brand?

What a crafty little mole he is.

The crypto market is growing and is well known. Many people start to learn and invest in it. It helps scammers to take away other people's money easily. As you can see, many people are trying to sell the BCH and spread it like a real Bitcoin to help push prices up, sharks trying to swallow the newbie.

competitors are the 1500+ altcoins that are out there which also happen to have very unique names and started from scratch even though they forked the code from some other project. and they never claim to be "real bitcoin", they sometimes claim to replace bitcoin which is bullshit but that doesn't make them scam.
but when a coin which is NOT bitcoin tells everyone that it IS bitcoin, that makes it scam.

with that said, unfortunately the exchanges which earn money from fees,... sometimes don't care about these things. and BCH has a decent volume which makes enough incentive for places like Coinbase to keep it there.

This is not enough to drive the coin down, he may be a big whale in the early years of bitcoin but not as much again. Roger ver had always done this, promoting his idea but the community is bigger than him.

We couldn't stop that easily if you trying to pull it down then there will be a chain effect on bitcoin core. I Guess?! because there's alot of newbies coming in to join our crypto space but the brighter side here they could see that bitcoin core is the main source of all currencies.

Actually, Bitcoin Cash is not just a fork. In august 2017 BCH has rejected the instilling the Segregated Witness technology into the blockchain of Bitcoin.

You're right it may not drive the coin down but those misleading informations being shared by those websites could encourage new users to buy bitcoin cash instead of bitcoin that could result in a bad experience with their first buy.

We couldn't stop that easily if you trying to pull it down then there will be a chain effect on bitcoin core. I Guess?! because there's alot of newbies coming in to join our crypto space but the brighter side here they could see that bitcoin core is the main source of all currencies.
Stop saying bitcoin core because there's no such crypto called as bitcoin core. You won't see exchanges use the word bitcoin core when they're selling bitcoin.

I think Bitcoin Cash listing and trading on Coinbase is very good and no problem at all. I do not think Bitcoin Cash is scam as you are saying here so I have no objection to trading Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash is a great source of revenue for Coinbase so they will definitely want to continue trading.

Do you think coinbase is so dumb to put bitcoin cash in a wallet exchange ? Bitcoin Cash is an altcoins and it can be mined moreover to that it's not scam. Why people should tell about that it's a forked of bitcoin.

This, at least other coins have the decency to have their own name and brand, the devs of all those coins have the dream of surpassing bitcoin and make their coin the number one coin, but they try to do it with honesty, bitcoin cash could have followed the same path if they just forked bitcoin and renamed their coin with any name they wanted except bitcoin, but it is obvious they not only do not want to renounce the name they want to keep it to themselves.

Because Bitcoin's qt-wallet literally says "Bitcoin Core" when you load it? It was the Core team that named their coin "Bitcoin Core".

I disagree. If you fully read the blog, you will see how Roger Ver is trying to trick the newbies and making them think that Bitcoin has split into Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash. Why call it "Bitcoin Core" in the first place? Is he trying to make them believe that Bitcoin Cash also has legitimate claim to the Bitcoin brand?

What a crafty little mole he is.

though bitcoin cash is not the chain that merchant tools follow right now and thus those wanting to spend bitcoin with merchants wont get the result that they want by moving bitcoin cash about.. i do have to say this

segwit chain is no better either. merchants have dropped using segwits chain by the 10's of thousands of businesses..

but anyway, reading your quote.. are you trying to say that bitcoin core has a legitimate claim to the bitcoin brand.

if so then you have failed the true understanding of bitcoin.. NO ONE should have claim to the brand.
but if you want to defend that core own bitcoin and any other team is just counterfeit. then you have given decentralised control over to an organisation who pretend to be random people..

what if coinbase decided that segwit core was the code that is not anything like the legacy bitcoin ethos and thus merchant tool services like coinbase and bitpay took segwit off their listing..

what if there was a big mega bug that was a threat to both segwit and x2 block formations. and both sides had to downgrade back to legacy block formations and transaction formats.

think beyond the team organisation defence and think about the utility and functionality.. because right now
segwit:
does not allow good flow of transactions onchain
does not meet merchants needs of cheap transactions
does not do what bitcoin was suppose to do that it did do in 2008-2014

right now the community is stuck at the(using social media analogy) myspace vs AOL members area.. it has not even got to the facebook era. in short w are still at the innovation stage, not the mainstream utility stage.

please dont reply with a segwit/core standard scripted defence . and think only about the utility of bitcoin and what is best for utility.. not whats best to kiss dev teams ass.

after all merchant tools like coinbase and bitpay could by utility and functionality decide that segwit is not the bitcoin advertised in 2008-2014 because merchants cant really use the segwit based chain due to many many reasons. and as such is affecting merchant tools services profitability.
even right now 'chuck' lee is advertising the hell of making litecoin the merchant tool coin. and as such litecoin could become the facebook of crypto, leaving all bitcoin variants as being the myspace/aol stuff left just for history books

think beyond the dev team battle. think beyond the kissing ass of core. think about whats most useful for the community

P.S i dont care about the team game drama.. i dont even care about which coin is the highest price. to me its about which coin is most meeting the original bitcoin ethos of allowing people to transact without barriers of entry and can be best suited to help the unbanked and those just wanting to cross national borders unhindered by the banking system.

I DO NOT TRADE OR ACT AS ESCROW ON THIS FORUM EVER.
Please do your own research & respect what is written here as both opinion & information gleaned from experience. many people replying with insults but no on-topic content substance, automatically are 'facepalmed' and yawned at

tl;dr: Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is marketing itself as Bitcoin (BTC), scamming consumers into thinking they are buying Bitcoin at a lower price. Its backers use at least three sites to perpetuate this scam—Bitcoin.com, Reddit (r/BTC) and Twitter (@Bitcoin). Scams have no place on Coinbase, perhaps the best-known American digital asset exchange. But by adding Bitcoin Cash alongside its three other assets, Coinbase has helped legitimize BCH’s scam, inviting a regulatory crackdown in this industry’s early years.

Look, I dislike Bitcoin Cash and I think its fundamentals are shitty -- highly centralized/concentrated mining, bad scalability roadmap, small community, etc. Some people like Roger Ver are marketing it deceptively. But it's just a fork of open source software. It's a live blockchain with active miners, user base and community. In my book, that's not a scam, and it's not incumbent on Coinbase to remove it.

This is all moot, anyway. If anything, Coinbase has made it clear that it's going to add coins. Expecting them to de-list BCH is only realistic if its volume drops enough to warrant it.

People often say that Bitcoin's future changes are up to the users, not some dogma like "Satoshi's vision." I agree with that. But "Bitcoin users" is a diverse set of actors, and increasingly so over time. What happens when different camps disagree about forks? Each side calls the other a "scam" and demands that exchanges de-list the other? That's not the spirit of FOSS and it's not the spirit of free markets.

Personally I favor Bitcoin over Bitcoin Cash, but Bitcoin Cash does not qualify as a "scam". It is a competitor.

People are going to have to get used to forks happening in this industry. Forks are a fundamental property of open source software and it is going to continue.

Well said.

I would normally agree with this, but I would argue that calling Bitcoin Cash just Bitcoin, which is what they want to do, is pretty scammy in itself. Legit competitors would want to distinguish themselves, not take over a name. Google never claimed to be Yahoo.

That being said, why would Coinbase delist Bitcoin Cash? Everyone should be able to choose which coins they wish to use, even the ones whose vision we don't agree with. Anything less than that is censorship.

Perfectly said all coins are shown as altcoin to bitcoin then why not use bitcoin cash and coinbase have rights to list coin of their choice where ever they will see the profit they will list coins

Well, yes and no. It is true that those behind Bitcoin.com want to call Bitcoin Cash the "real" Bitcoin. And they use "Bitcoin Core" to refer to Bitcoin. It would be better if these folks did not own that domain.

On the other hand their guide to buying Bitcoin, which includes a link to buying Bitcoin through a credit card (through Simplex which I assume they are partnering with), is for buying actual Bitcoin, not Bitcoin Cash.

Personally I favor Bitcoin over Bitcoin Cash, but Bitcoin Cash does not qualify as a "scam". It is a competitor.

You seem to be in favour of bitcoin cash supporting it's tricks of getting benefit of the goodwill earned by the bitcoin in the minds of millions of investors.  If the intentions are good why not create their own brand image.  Why take advantage of someone else' efforts.  
New entrants will definitely be misguided by the name they are using; so the intentions are clear that they want to collect funds in the name of bitcoin, if it is not a scam then definitely it is the dishonest way adopted to misguide the investors.
