Zcash founding team member Zooko Wilcox-O’Hearn (known as Zooko) revealed he had spoken to Bitmain CEO Jihan Wu May 24, sparking contention among cryptocurrency commentators.
Zooko And Wu Talk Bitmain
In a blog post, Zooko recalled how he had discussed various current topics regarding mining manufacturer Bitmain and the controversy surrounding it.
While not quoting Wu directly, the videolink conversation, which Zooko paraphrased, touched on the company’s reputation, including its decision to release an ASIC miner capable of mining Zcash.
Wu has been the subject of major scorn for Bitmain’s opposition of SegWit, while infamously calling its transaction model “unfairly cheap,” alongside alleged use of covert Asicboost, support of Bitcoin Unlimited followed by Bitcoin Cash, continues to face accusations he lied about his motivation.
For Zooko, however, who allegedly told Wu he was “annoyed at him” as Bitmain “hadn’t given me a heads-up about their new ASIC Zcash miner,” Wu’s responses appeared to paint him in a more credible light.
