From my perspective, it is Blockstream/Core that are tampering with Bitcoin, by refusing to allow a much-needed capacity increase to reduce fees and allow for continued growth, and then by fundamentally changing the structure of the BTC coin by adding segwit.  
Bitcoin Cash represents the original vision for Bitcoin as peer-to-peer electronic cash.  I will continue work to realize this vision, and help resist the hijack attempt by Blockstream and Core.

From my perspective, Roger Ver/Jihan Wu/et al are tampering with Bitcoin by spamming the mempool, dividing the community, and not "seeing the forest-through-the-trees" with the hack-job that is Bitcoin Cash.

Bitcoin is the backbone. Segwit helps the backbone scale for more/cheaper TPS.

It's just common sense.

I consider the BCH team to be as reprehensible as if they they orchestrated a 51% attack on the bitcoin network.

Why are you reacting so emotionally?  You have held bitcoin for a long time, and so you would have equal coins on both the Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash chains.  If Bitcoin evolves as peer-to-peer digital cash, with low fees and reliable confirmation, you win; if Bitcoin evolves as digital gold, with high fees and transaction friction, you win too.

I believe in the original vision for Bitcoin as described in the white paper: as a peer-to-peer electronic cash system.  I am working to help shape bitcoin to that vision and will continue to do so.

Could I be wrong?  Sure.  Maybe it actually is good to have $20 fees (soon to be $50) and a network that can only process 3 transactions per seconds (one thousand times less than Visa).  

And that is why I hold both BTC and BCH.  

i react emotionally because YOU play games with my live savings. why the fuck aren´t you creating just another altcoin to realize your great vision? why tamper with bitcoin? if you are not happy with it, leave it. well, you sort of did, but you try to steal as much juice of it as possible, trying to hurt bitcoin as much as possible.

now you expecting me to hug you for it? your game is called hijacking and it is evil.

You are stupid. I can only advice you to sell all your bitcoins and buy CASH.  (ooouch, are you refusing?, CASH is not as good as BTC ?)

take hash power away from Core in "bursts" to drive up network congestion so that the problem with small blocks became more obvious
We still need more throughput. Tactics aside the point is valid.

Exploiting a generally known problem in a system to promote another system is by no means trying to improve the original. But is simply marketing the
other system.  So claiming it is to improve the original is misleading when it is just competing the original.
So fix the problem. Do it a year ago.

Don't you already have Bitcoin Cash that allows continued growth? What's wrong with it?


Nothing is wrong with it.  That's why we're working on it.  To continue building Bitcoin as a P2P eCash system.  

Right now the market and the miners are trying to figure out which is superior: Bitcoin Cash or Bitcoin Core.

there is no skill behind making a block bigger. zero innovation. no skill = no value
Original thought is overrated. What matters is what works. Bigger blocks work.

Yeah, excellent strategy.

Significant dump this is, it’s not going to get much worse though, surely. I hope 6k stays strong.
Set up my last buying order at 6k. Hope you are right.


O.k.  You are partially correct in buying on the way down; however,  you do not want to run out of money merely based on a 25% to 30% price correction.

You should have enough money to buy down to about a 60% correction or perhaps more.  However, it is quite likely that 60% corrections are very infrequent, yet we frequently have to be prepared for such corrections, and it is even better if you are able to prepare for even a larger price correction - such as 80%, which should be even more rare and perhaps only occurring every few years, at most - especially in what is likely an s-curve adoption period of bitcoin, right?

<Sigh> Ibian, this has been covered extensively. You can't just trivialize and hand wave it all away as a simple block size increase will solve everything and still retain network stability while maintaining mining decentralization. Also, see BCH for example of block size increase trainwreck nightmare scenario.
Here's some reading for ya:

I did not invent aristotelian philosophy. Aristotle did. 2500 years ago. And some of the ideas of he and his contemporaries are part of our culture.

I likewise did not invent electric lighting, and neither did you, but if you insist on inventing everything you use then go ahead and turn off the power and start from scratch.

Incidentally, animals are delicious.

Bigger blocks does not make the sum that comprises Bitcoin necessarily better. One could make a Bitcoin clone with 2second block time and call it better or with 1GB blocks for that matter. But the trade off involved cannot be ignored if contemplating about this diligently. The BCH ‘solution’ does not scale, only temporarily postponed the issue.

And finally, but that is just personal, I do not like how these boys behaved themselves in this matter. Bitcoin Gold on the other hand....
