    Just heard from another merchant adding BCH.

    I think we’ll see a wave of “dropping BTC, customer support costs too high” within six months.

    Bitcoin Cash is what I started working on in 2010 [with Bitcoin]: a store of value AND means of exchange.

I like to think the markets will eventually abandon tech-train-wreck coins (like IOTA).

BTC is the Birkin Bag of crypto-assets. Expensive and rare with high transaction costs but huge brand value.

Talent has been going to ETH for over a year now; miner centralization has little influence on that trend.

BCH will never overtake BTC because BCH proponents lack focus. They are multicoiners with diversififed bags.

You know when a network gets unstable ? When you primitively increase the block size. Taking the easy way out is not a long term solution and will be the downfall of BCH. History teaches us that scaling the right way is always better than scaling the easier way.
