Timeline of the CSW-CoinGeek attack on Bitcoin Cash.
Back in March 2018, Rick Falkvinge warned that the BCH community had learned nothing from the Blockstream takeover of Bitcoin, and warned that the BCH community needed to identify toxic sociopaths (like CSW) early on.
Over time, the divide between CSW and many BCH people began to expand.

- Peter Rizun (Bitcoin Unlimited)

- Haipo Yang (ViaBTC & CoinEx.com the BCH-based exchange)
- Jonald Fyookball (Electron Cash wallet)
- Chris Pacia (OpenBazaar.org)
CSW, nChain, billionaire Calvin Ayre, CoinGeek are all aligned.
And it appears that they bought up anywhere from 40%-51% of BCH hashpower.
Now they're threatening to launch double spend attacks against BCH exchanges, like CoinEx / ViaBTC.
Basically, CSW / nChain / Calvin / CoinGeek want to create a hardfork (Bitcoin SV), and insist that everyone follow it as BCH, and they'll launch double spend attacks against anyone in the BCH community who doesn't comply.
In August 2018, there was a meeting of the BCH miners, to try to resolve differences. There were about 50 people in attendance, and everyone was professional & cordial, except CSW. During someone else's presentation, CSW cried "Lies and Bullshit!", and walked out. Overall, CSW ended up missing 95% of the conference, and nothing was resolved.
