Breaking News on The Decentral First.
Roger Ver offered the bitcoin payment processing company, OpenNode $1.25 million to accept Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Predictably OpenNode refused the offer.
Rui Gomes, an OpenNode developer commented:
No amount of money will make us serve inferior money.
The company also tweeted:
Thanks for the $1.25MM offer @rogerkver, but we’re going to have to turn it down. Our vision of a better, more open financial system is only possible with Bitcoin. #bitcoin4everydayhttps://t.co/4tbavwnXXb
