I was reading http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/17/business/dealbook/the-bitcoin-believer-who-gave-up.html, where Hearn has been quoted saying...

"I want to be in a professional environment again where people are grounded in some sort of business reality."

So, he left an industry having unprofessionals like Barry Silbert, Tim Draper, Richard Branson to work for this element...

He may be twit, but I find it hard to deny that the folks in development, not the services surrounding it, seem barely aware of a world beyond their bunkers that''s using it.

I don't feel any pity for him, just disgust.

He doesn't understand the mathematics of emergence from chaos.

Bitcoin will eventually fix itself. I have as much faith in Bitcoin as I do in mathematics.

I don't know if I should feel pitty. You can't know if he's not deep in some affairs. He might have been bought to provoke this gigantisc lowering trend!

I'm affraid you are losing an important person for bitcoin. But I also feel he is right, either Bitcoin surpasses the current adoption levels fast or it will become obsolete, surpassed by another better coin. I can see ethereum as the new bitcoin.

It's a hit to the industry reputation. The best case scenario - the price will recover after some time and sun will shine.

I too feel a bit sorry for Mike Hearn after reading his write up on the current state of affairs. He is quite right and on the spot on most of his post and one can clearly see he wanted to change something and leave a dent on Bitcoin for the better and that this talk and all of the disregard for a block size increase made him tired.

I think he did well on going away, sad to see he didn't have much of a chance.

Have you just popped out from under a rock? Hearn wanted to subvert an entire Country by checkpointing blocks!

He was definitely out of tune with that one, but I do think that motivating block size discussion was more relevant than some of the crap he put out after starting the fire.

It's not easy to be in a team, trying to push a change you truly believe in and you are sure that will be a good contribution and being constantly thrown out and dragged down.

Why would you feel pitty for a sellout? He isn't dumb, he knows what he's doing. He is butthurt at the fact his XT altcoin didn't made the cut and left, all of his words sound like a bitter man and his FUD NYC article was the nail in the coffin.

Bitcoin is moving forward. Its price gradually recovers back from previous low. Hearn' attempt to crash it has failed. Never mind. Check here http://coinjournal.net/scaling-bitcoin-austin-hill-blip/ Bitcoin will get its blocksize increased eventually. No matter in what way! Hearn has really bad attitude with his previous job.

No pity for Hearn. This was a well-planned and strategic attack on Bitcoin by the international banks and financiers, and I believe that Hearn is one of their minions.

I just wonder if Bitcoin will be able to compete with whatever the R3 group is spending that 9 billion USD in research and development on.  They seem to be assembling quite a bit of talent and money over there....Doesn't that group have quite a bit of power too?  I just hope Bitcoin will be ready when the "REAL" fud starts rolling....Now they've scabbed Hearn, a core developer too? Help! Why shouldn't I be worried about what they're doing over there?
