Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin (V God) forwarded the second proposal for the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) miner tax initiative. Podcast host Brad Mills believes this is not a sincere solidarity action. He hinted that God V was pushing for the Bitcoin Cash plan to "weak the Bitcoin brand." Brad Mills called the entire Bitcoin Cash story and its "real Bitcoin" nature deceptive from the beginning. Moreover, this support could be a revenge on Bitcoin supporters who support Ethereum Classic (ETC). Brad Mills concluded that V God used this strategy to support Ethereum by weakening competitors. God V denied these claims and explained that he did not consider Bitcoin Cash to be Bitcoin. God V believes that the mining tax may be an attempt for BCH, with the aim of transforming its narrative from the word "anti-Core" to their own corporate image.
