Vitalik Buterin: Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is not Bitcoin (BTC)
Ethereum founder and supporter of Bitcoin Cash, Vitalik Buterin, in a recent tweet said that the two coins aren’t the same.

It is well known in the Bitcoin community that Vitalik Buterin has a soft spot for Bitcoin Cash, but this is not the first time Vitalik has made this clarification. Back in 2017, Vitalik Buterin tweeted that he considers “Bitcoin Cash as a legitimate contender for Bitcoin name, but Bitcoin Cash = Bitcoin is a bad idea”.
In 2017, the Bitcoin community split into 2 groups – Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, after a disagreement within the community members as to which is the best way to scale. Bitcoin (BTC) core developers wanted an off-chain scaling, while Bitcoin Cash (BCH) supported an increase in block size to scale the chain.
