    I disagree with [the] BCH dev strategy [of developing BCH independently] . . . instead, I would have just kept copying BTC code, weird/disagreeable elements included.

    Some of their changes make backporting [BTC code improvements] much harder for no apparent reason. . . . Not good.

    Bitcoin Cash could win -- it's cheaper to use, and decentralization is completely useless 99.9% of the time. Just hodl both.

Not that I mind other people trying, but there is extreme deception in Augur. Their "March 2018" whitepaper is basically just mine plus a bunch of bizarre decisions.

Putting software “on a blockchain” is an inconvenience, justified only in cases involving a global public ledger. These ledger-cases are likely to be limited to Money, Reputation, and Names. This limitation suggests that other “[distributed autonomous communities]” are not economically viable, and Ethereum may be “a solution in search of a problem.”

Ethereum has been injected with a lot of money, talent, [and] good risk over the last 2 years, which has vastly improved its quality. But it is still a nonsense premise and, as an investment, no one has addressed [the] main problem of Bitcoin imitation, either through soft fork or sidechain.

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

BCH has nothing to do with Bitcoin

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.
