In a recent turn of events, several articles have claimed that Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum has recommended Bitcoin Cash. He was quoted as saying “I want to be able to walk into a convenience store, get a card and pay a small fee to start using Bitcoin Cash.”
Vitalik attended a private event last week that was held in San Francisco. He discussed several pressing issues affecting the crypto community along with the scope and use cases of the blockchain. During his chat with Jason Hsu at the event hosted by Blockchain at Berkeley student-run organisation, Buterin also shared how regulatory openness is essential for frictionless transactions with cryptocurrencies, as reported by Forbes.
A Twitter user by the name of WhalePanda with a following of over 200K tagged Vitalik in a tweet and noted that his support to Bitcoin Cash was trending as expected. “You’re now basically BFF with CSW,” WhalePanda added. To this Vitalik shared that it must have been a transcription error. He also pointed out that there were other errors as well.

The same Forbes article has now been updated to remove the transcription errors, and it now reads “I want to be able to walk into a convenience store, get a card, pay $5 and get $5, minus some small fee of like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, etc and start using it.”
