This article was brought to my attention by people I respect:
What drivel! The quote in the article “Bitcoin Core developers are also part of the Grin development team” is completely made up. Either the author, the interviewee (or both) got this abjectly wrong or are spreading rumors.
I would encourage the Grin Core devs to nip these rumors in the butt.
Sigh, this sucks. There seems to be a new type of trolling importing Bitcoin’s conspiracy theories in our little cryptocurrency corner of world. But it’s not entirely new, we’ve had to correct randoms popping up on Gitter before. Hopefully the BTC.top founder is just misinformed and confused.
I wish I didn’t have to state any of this, but looks like I do:
Only 2 people in the Grin Core team are anonymous: Antioch and myself. Everyone else is known and non-affiliated with Bitcoin Core.
As has been stated in the last governance meeting Antioch is contracting for 3 months with another company (undisclosed yet but not affiliated with Bitcoin Core) and I’m now employed by the Grin community. Neither of us are affiliated with Bitcoin Core, we’re busy enough as it is.
Last time I wrote a line of C++ was over 15 years ago. And I swear on the whole Harry Potter book series that I’m not Craig Wright. I do not hold 127 PhDs either (although that’d be cool).
My apologies to the all the Bitcoin Core developers and related organizations who are victimized by these rumors. I guess you’re more used to it than we are, and we can perhaps commiserate and fantasize about being left alone while just trying to do our best to benefit this space.
P.S. To conspiracy theorists, I’d take a much more serious look at potential affiliations with the Game of Thrones. Some of us could definitely seem involved.
Whoever shared this with you needs a rant about mental hygiene, creg wright, and other bch poeple hasn’t been trusted in ages, random person who was part of bitmain probably should not be trusted, his words mean less then random internet posters. And you don’t spread known hostile information that doesn’t have content.
I think Grin is a Core experiment to test this idea. Bitcoin Core developers are also part of the Grin development team. As we have noticed, Grin is a very interesting project that has no halving mechanism.
关于 “Bitcoin Core developers are also part of the Grin development team.” 的谣言 Igno 上面已经澄清过了。而 “I think Grin is a Core experiment to test this idea.” 则纯粹是意译过头，江卓尔 的中文原话中并无对应的词句和含意。
