BTC is BTC, BCH is BCH and a different color/logo. deadalnix is the lead for Bitcoin Cash, not Ver, though he's the lead evangelist. Even Anton Antonopolous thinks they can coexist. The whole "bcash" attack needs to stop. There needs to be something to fill the gap bitcoin as a transactional currency and nothing exists with the infrastructure in place like bitcoin/bitcoin cash.
They can and will coexist, just like the hundreds of other alts. The difference is the other alts owned their "alt" status and aren't trying to steal the bitcoin brand. Ver owns bitcoin.com and therefore is able to hoodwink noobs. It isn't like we have a lack of cryptos that want to be transactional currencies: LTC, PIVX, Dash, QRL, HYP, XMR, ZCash, Doge, XVG, and on and on. Ver is rich, he can do what he wants. It doesn't mean I have to like it or use his product. He can keep his Bcash, I will take QRL & BTC.
Yes, but isn't that what capitalists do? lol Bitcoin is decentralized and therefor does not own the brand, unless its a centralized brand. There are plenty others but none that can match the brand equity or previous utility of bitcoin other than bitcoin cash right now because of the airdrop more people have it. The only other one I'd put on a similar level is LTC and maybe DASH but i'm not really sure why DASH is pumping. I think it needs to be there and most people will still use btc or bch combo.
And where did bcash get this "brand equity"? Did it comes from inventing crypto, did it come from years of programming, did it come from grassroots demand? No. They forked bitcoin, and have a bunch of miners favoring them because it is more profitable. Ok, fair enough. But I don't have to respect or use this stolen brand equity.
Currently, BTC is my store of value coin, ETH is my "usage" coin, QRL will be my currency coin, and DBET will be my gambling token. We'll see how NEO works out in all this.
