The Ortega Method, also known as the Varasano Method, is a 2x2x2 and 3x3x3 speedsolving method named after Victor Ortega or Jeffrey Varasano, depending on which method name is used. It was independently invented by Victor Ortega and Josef Jelínek, whose ideas were inspired off of Jeffrey Varasano's corners first method, which has sparked some naming controversy in the community started by Chris Olson after posting a video on YouTube about the matter.
