In a climate of a bear market that is showing no signs of immediate recovery, contentious remarks by influential figures can ignite whirlwinds of speculation and debate. Recently, Calvin Ayre of nChain, a prominent figure in the cryptocurrency space and a fervent supporter of Bitcoin SV (BSV), made a series of intriguing statements addressing a particularly incendiary topic, ex CEOs, Christen Ager-Hanssen (CAH) role within the BSV ecosystem and his turbulent relationship with nChain, the blockchain research and development firm.
The Duality of CAH’s Standing
Ayre expressed anticipation for mainstream media to delve into what he labelled as the “moronic Fairway Brief fiction,” arguing that such coverage would inadvertently serve as free promotion for both nChain and BSV. “Imagine how much value he [CAH] could create for us if this happens,” Ayre speculated. However, his enthusiasm was sharply counterbalanced by his distrust of CAH. He proclaimed, “CAH loves BSV but hates Craig, nChain, and I who made it happen. How is that sane? The guy is a con man. Do not let him into any of your projects.”

MSM will be so appalled by CAH's revelations [and presumably their lack of credibility] that it will inspire a new more positive public perception toward nChain & BSV?
and that will afford an opportunity to promote BSV to a larger audience?
Market Response: A Paradoxical Boost?
In a rather jocular tone, Ayre pondered the potential market advantages of CAH’s dismissal from BSV-affiliated companies. “Do you guys think CAH should get fired from a BSV ecosystem company every week? Seems the market goes up 40% when this happens…12% today alone,” he mused. This statement implies a convoluted relationship between CAH’s corporate engagements and market valuations, suggesting that CAH’s exit from these firms could paradoxically benefit BSV.

Ayre’s Final Word: CAH’s Business Acumen
In Ayre’s view, CAH’s business ventures are characterized less by entrepreneurial ingenuity and more by deceit and asset misappropriation. “Look, CAH has NEVER started or run a successful company,” Ayre cautioned. “All he does is lie to get in and then try to steal assets. This is not complicated. It’s all out there; do your own research.” Reiterating his role as a corporate fixer, Ayre concluded that CAH’s exit was inevitable and justified. “He was gone the second I bought control, and that is all that’s happening. I fix companies.”
The Pitfalls of a Public Meltdown

Concluding his observations, Ayre touched upon the reputational damage an embattled former CEO like CAH could incur due to a public meltdown on social media. “Nothing more embarrassing to watch than a terminated for cause ex-CEO of a company on full social media meltdown,” Ayre stated. “Hard to line up your next ‘host’ company to prey on when this is all over the internet also.”
As the blockchain sector continues to be a breeding ground for both innovation and controversy, Calvin Ayre’s public reflections serve as an acute reminder of the fragile and often combative relationships that can shape market dynamics and public perception. Whether CAH proves to be a destructive force or an unwitting catalyst for BSV remains to be seen, but it’s clear that Ayre’s influence will be instrumental in steering this narrative.
