Electronic Cash Or Electronic Gold?

psa

Here’s my personal take on the SegWit (fixed, small block size) vs. Bitcoin Unlimited (dynamically determined block size) war of attrition that keeps raging on within the Bitcoin community:

  • SegWit => Steers Bitcoin off of the “electronic cash” path Satoshi Nakamoto originally started it on, and towards an “electronic gold” niche that hard-limits the number of people that can use Bitcoin gainfully.
  • Bitcoin Unlimited => Keeps Bitcoin on the “electronic cash” path, providing 2 billion “unbanked” people with the opportunity to bootstrap themselves out of poverty, participate in commerce, and boost the global economy.
