Bitcoin's adolescence

Probably the best description for what is happening within bitcoin recently came from TechCrunch columnist Jon Evens, who wrote that he believes bitcoin, and derivative technologies like blockchain, "are still in their gangly antisocial adolescence".

This is fitting, given Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong's new argument on bitcoin’s longstanding block size issue in which he alleged that some Bitcoin Core developers "lack maturity".

To remedy this issue, Armstrong believes it is time for competition in bitcoin development so the technology can push forward.

This has been widely viewed as contentious by members of the community, but perhaps it shouldn't be.

Coindesk + Coinbase = banskter propaganda par excellence

The formula is simple, take a truism ("competition amongst Bitcoin nodes could cause the system to collapse") and suggest the opposite ("lack of competition amongst Bitcoin nodes could cause the system to collapse")

It's easy to disentangle the bullshit though: who is responsible for 7 years of success running the Bitcoin project? It's not Brian Armstrong.

May I suggest that Brian Armstrong and his (no doubt) bankster paymasters are those lacking maturity. Read my lips: you're finished. Quit it.

The whole article is not more than big crap.
You just have to read the comments to feel vindicated.
Coindesk has become worse the last 12 months in terms of being a good neutral news platform.
