In what will come as a shock to Bitcoin Cash Satoshi Vision (BCHSV) community, some images of child abuse were uploaded on the blockchain. A user whose identity has not yet been revealed, managed to upload the pictures with the help of a payment processor application called- ‘Money Button’ (which is partially funded by nChain).
The photos were initially seen on Bitcoinfiles.org, as reported by news portal, CryptoNewsZ. The website allows people to browse messages and access other information on the blockchain. As soon as this came to light, the portal shut down.
Jimmy Nguyen, founder of nChain stated that the company took a ‘zero tolerance’ for such illegal activities. He was quoted by news portal BBC as saying, “The Bitcoin SV blockchain is not a place for criminal activity – and if you use it for illegal purposes, you will leave a digitally signed evidence trail that cannot be erased. We stand ready to work with global law enforcement authorities to stamp out this and any other illegal misuse of Bitcoin.”
Meanwhile Money Button founder, Ryan Charles said, “Since most businesses increased the size of allowed data recently, making it possible to post large files, criminals are trying to push the limits.”
In the aftermath of this event, Money Button has banned the user for uploading those images and they have also put in filtering systems to make sure such incidents do not occur in the future.
Charles added, “We have all the information we need to track down criminals and prosecute them.”
Bitcoin Cash SV had a rather stormy beginning as the entire Bitcoin Cash community was divided between Craig Wright and Roger Ver. While Wright and some of his associates whole-heartedly supported Bitcoin Cash SV, Ver and his loyalists threw their weight behind ABC, which led to bitter, acrimonious fights between the two camps.
