The owner of the largest BCH-pool Calvin Eyre reported a DDoS attack on its news website.

hahaha…someone is DDosing….this is exactly my point on why we need adult leadership provided by miners to take over from the Devs. You can not build and industry or a business on a platform run by kids.

“Ha ha ha. Someone is DDoS… That’s why I believe that the initiative of the developers should learn from adults, then there are miners. You can’t create an industry or business through the platform, managed by children,” wrote a supporter of the alternative implementation of the Bitcoin Cash Bitcoin called SV.

In all likelihood, the attack was not very powerful and didn’t last long, because soon, the supporter blocks 128MB laughed at the “children’s incompetence” of the attacker.

hahaha….so childish and incompetent…can not even knock out a website for one day . CoinGeek is back in operation….better than ever. Bitcoin needs adults and that means miners are in charge!

“I can’t even put a website for one day. CoinGeek resumed work”

After he added the following:

I want to thank my friends DDoS. Their voluntary paying to stress test my website made it stronger. The Bitcoin Stress test coming will similarly expose weaknesses and make the network stronger. We know Bitcoin the SV will keep the network strong. 128 M onchain blocks anyone?

“I want to thank my DDoS friends. Made their free stress test made my website more reliable. The upcoming stress test of bitcoin in a similar way will reveal weak spots, making the network more reliable. We are convinced that SV will strengthen the Bitcoin network. Who blocks for 128 MB?”

It is possible that the attack is not so important in the ecosystem of cryptocurrency news site was a kind of warning from opponents of the implementation of the SV Bitcoin competing with traditional implementation of the Bitcoin ABC.

Note that the eponymous pool of Kelvin Ayr is the largest in the Bitcoin ecosystem have Cash.

Moreover, about one hour before hard forks support the Bitcoin miners solutions SV is over 73%.

This indicates a high probability of a split of the main fork of bitcoin on two competing chains, as well as about the potential for “attacks 51%” Bitcoin ABC on the part of admirers “the original vision of Satoshi”.
