Twitter-account mining-pool BitPico posted a message with a very sharp criticism of bitcoin and its future prospects in the market.
We are no longer bullish on #bitcoin $btc & dumped all @ 8300 USD. We’ve put our farm up for sale also. Why? We no longer want to participate in the worlds most manipulated commodity. Bitcoin is now just a shit show. Good luck! pic.twitter.com/habZvcdr1q

“We’re not optimistic on BTC. We poured all the bitcoins for $8300. We also put our farm up for sale. Why? We don’t want to participate in the areas most prone to manipulation. Bitcoin is now just a shit show. Good luck!”.
This tweet has discouraged many users of the social network. However, given that the previous tweets were deleted BitPico, and considering the recent stress test of the Bitcoin network Cash, some Twitter users speculated that the account was simply hacked.
Roger is that you?

“Roger, is that you?”, — he wrote one user under the name PBCrypto, in all probability implying an ardent apologist for Bitcoin Cash Roger Faith.

Known frequenter of Twitter under the name ArminVanBitcoin suggested that the company will conduct a rebranding, and will also pay off back those bitcoins at $20 000:
We’ll hear from you again after you rebrand and buy it all back at $20K. 🍻
