Crypto startup investor and Bitcoin Cash proponent Roger Ver have criticized internet domain registrar GoDaddy Inc (NYSE: GDDY) for wrongly listing the Bitcoin.com domain as for sale. Notably, GoDaddy had listed the Bitcoin.com domain for sale for a minimum bid of $100,000,000.

Roger Ver called out GoDaddy for propagating fake news that ultimately would damage his real brand’s reputation. “The domain listing is fake news, and perhaps even just another example of a dirty attack on BCH by BTC maximalists. Just like the time they flooded every Bitcoin.com email address with spam that has been going on to this very day,” Ver told Cointelegraph.

Worth noting, GoDaddy had listed the Bitcoin.com domain as taken at the time of reporting. The company has not yet given a statement on the listing error that attracted the crypto community’s attention.

Currently, the premium Bitcoin-related domains available on the site include Bitcoin.store that has an estimated value of £11,749.09, Bitcoin.cars that have been listed for £5,773.26, Bytecoin.net that has been listed for £10,845.20, and block-chain.org that has been listed for approximately £10,764.23.

Although not yet verified by the company, there has been a rivalry between Bitcoin maximalists and the Bitcoin Cash community. The two have differed on the original Bitcoin whitepaper that was envisioned by Satoshi Nakamoto over a decade ago.

Distinctively, Bitcoin remains undisputed as the crypto King with a dominance of approximately 58% according to CoinGecko. On the other hand, Bitcoin Cash is listed as position 11 according to its market capitalization that stands at $11.7 billion at the time of reporting.

Notably, Bitcoin Cash that uses the ticker BCH has rallied over 10% in the past 24-hours to trade around $628.83. The asset has added approximately 172% in the past 12 months and up over 25% in the last month.

The Bitcoin.com listing error on GoDaddy did not have adverse effects on the company’s stock market. Notably, GDDY stocks were trading around $81.86 during the after-hours trading session, the same value it closed at yesterday after adding 2.06% during the day.

Such errors could raise differences in the crypto community, particularly in retail adoption. Blockchain technology could be deployed to help securely sell internet domains in the future.
