Vitalik Buterin (Co-Founder of Ethereum):
I definitely think the censorship on the /r/bitcoin subreddit is very unfortunate. And I do think it’s very contrary to the kind of values that we want to have and support in the cryptocurrency and blockchain ecosystem.
So for example if you look at the most recent Bitcoin Cash hardfork, basically all discussion of it was banned and it was replaced with one single thread where they called Bitcoin Cash “Bcash”. This is a deliberate tactic to try and make it sound like this is just an altcoin and it’s something that’s not very connected to Bitcoin. You see a lot of smaller examples of this sort of thing.
So I do believe that there’s a lot of people in both the Bitcoin ecosystem and many other crypto ecosystems, that are definitely not happy about this sort of thing.
