but other than that... the coin is legit??
Legit? Here is the "technical innovation" behind bitcoin cash. Copy bitcoin's code, change block = 1MB to block = 8MB, hit enter, market like crazy, call Bitcoin "bitcoin core" while calling the fork the "real bitcoin" because you own bitcoin.com website. Go off the rails when people call it B-cash or BitCash (my new favorite), but then continue to badmouth bitcoin. Roger also insulted my crypto hero Andreas so I am bias against him too.
You know who I do have respect for? Projects like LTC, XMR, Dash, PIVX, QRL and other alternate crypto currencies who are actually bringing new tech and innovation to crypto and not just a marketing blitz. I don't want Roger Ver as the leader or face of a project I'm involved in. These other alts have been around for year(s) and have entire teams behind them that want to do something original from the ground up. B-cash forked bitcoin and didn't need groundswell support because anyone holding bitcoin already had free B-cash. What value did they add? If their only argument is fast transaction times and low fees, guess what, 100 other cryptos do the same thing.
The smart play is to just hold both, but I don't always follow the smart play. I sold my Bcash for both bitcoin and what I perceive to be alts with better longer term value from a technological innovation perspective in this space. I understand many people are just in this for profit. Profit is nice, but some of us want to change the world too. Why do you think I love QRL so much? It wants to be on the leading edge of technology that will save us from future quantum computing security hacks. Do you think B-cash will be on that leading edge? Not a chance. It will probably be among the first ones hacked by QC.
So buy it if you like it; it's a free market. As to me and my crypto $$$, we shall pass on the B-cash, and the next time Roger "Rage Quits" on somebody else I will post the new pic and have another chuckle.
