Don’t Rule Out Bitcoin Cash | Vlog #98

With all of the attention on Bitcoin Legacy (BTC) and Bitcoin Gold (BTG) at the moment, I think it’s worth remembering that we shouldn’t rule out Bitcoin Cash yet either.

    As a newbie, is Bitcoin Plus (XBC) part of the family? I see it down there ranked 308, at £31.19 a coin? I'm just wondering was it part of a previous fork?

    Usually i think you make sense but seriously look at Bitcoin Gold a bit deeper. The team is made of 1 developer that dont even show its face. They made this fork JUST for the publicity. Had they dont this after 2X they would not get any attention. So what did they do. They copy the code and did not even have it ready. There is no wallet, no miner. And also they made 100k coin for themselves. For what? forking a coin? Is that worth billions of dollar? Call a scam a scam. Just be realistic.
    Bitcoin cash might be more legit. There is a legit difference how the 2 forks will continue and they have atleast a proper support for dev, mining and wallet.
    I dont have any BCH but maybe i get a few just incase.

    Totally agree. Roger Ver is viewed the Anti-Christ at the moment but he's very rational in his analysis and so I think in the medium to long term things could change for cash. I'm not emotionally attached to any coin and so it's all a great social science experiment and I look forward to the results regardless.

    Please check Delivering Liberty, at Scale from Andreas Antonopoulos. I'm always looking at cryptos from technical perspective. This is my way of course, but I have to also say that all the decentralised coins are bringing answers to the economy with technology. If it can not be sustainable in a long term, it will not work. It has to be secure, reliable, fast, decentralised, and available for everyone. S2X and BCH are defeating many of these concepts, not to mention how much development going into them… Great video though, keep up the good work! 🙂

    First defining statement straight from Bitcoin Core's Github "Bitcoin is an experimental digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. " How many here would start telling your friends, family, business associates how instant Bitcoin is? The product has long been broken, Bitcoin Cash is the best candidate by far right now to take on the role of what Bitcoin could have been in my beyond humble opinion.

    Just wanted to throw that in here. I'm not saying you are just opposing the crowd. You are obviously trying to get an informed opinion on this. But I think if there was something fundamentally wrong about BCH, majority of average crypto-holders wouldn't even get it. So there might be many people holding BCH just because they are uncertain. 5.5 billion $ marketcap based on uncertainty? 😀 . Who knows…

    Well done Louis. Finally, someone is starting to think for themselves instead of just regurgitating the disinformation from Core.

    The next thing to think about: Who created BCC & why?

    It's not the two main suspects that everyone thinks it is.

    BTC is no longer bitcoin. It has not been bitcoin since segwit was activated on August 23rd 2017.
    From the Satoshi whitepaper: "We define an electronic coin as a chain of digital signatures". SegWit removes the digital signatures from the BTC blockchain, therefore the BTC blockchain no longer fits the definition of bitcoin. BCH, on the other hand, still meets the definition of bitcoin set out by Satoshi.

    FYI Louis, if you view crypto (especially Bitcoin, and I mean real Bitcoin, not SegWit coin) as "Investment" in terms of fiat money, you are not seeing the purpose of Bitcoin. Bitcoin is not meant to be an investment for existing system, it is meant to enable you to exit the existing corrupt system and to get into new decentralised p2p system which the rulers of existing system, can't control. For this very reason, people forget that just getting new system (like Core's SegWit+LN) to become just another system that is centralised and controlled (yet again) by bankers… defeats the whole purpose of Bitcoin.

    Bitcoin is not an investment, its a wealth transfer from existing corrupt system which will collapse, into a new decentralised system that will live on an create something beneficial for the humanity… what it will do is take away the power of selected top richest individuals to print their own money while no one else can… Bitcoin creates one same rule for everyone, anyone can now print their own money, and everyone must follow the same rules set by the Bitcoin system…. and this will create other positive "side effects" in society as well (for example, bankers won't be able to just print endless amount of fiat to find wars.. and that is one MAJOR benefit).

    No more creating money out of nothing and no more one rule for them and another rule for everyone else.

    That is the essence of Bitcoin… and Core are deliberately trying to prevent that.

    I also have been researching Bitcoin Cash a lot lately and see a lot of opportunities. The coin is backed by some very wealthy people for one and prides itself on being the purest Bitcoin version. Should we see technical problems arise with Segwit, this may lead to a high interest in Bitcoin Cash. At 300 dollars Bitcoin Cash seems like something to look at.

    There's a difference between going against the herd and being stupid. If you bought peer coin years ago you would have lost money, if you bought bitcoin you would have made a ton of money. Buy doge though, it's going up 4x after all these damn forks.

    Bitcoin Cash is in that moment my strongest position, and will be for quite a while. I think the current mindset of "forking bitcoin will always output an altcoin" is so irrational and stupid.

    Louis, kudos for being open minded and unbiased about this subject. A rare characteristic for commentators. Although I disagree that bitcoin cash is a sound investment, the r/btc reddit is in my opinion a superior place for reasoned discussion than r/bitcoin. r/bitcoin is heavily censored. The narrative is controlled by a select few mods (in particular theymos). The party line is that anything that any discussion of increasing the block size is "going against consensus rules", and any (positive) discussion of bitcoin cash or segwit 2x is "discussing altcoins" – even though these coins are owned by any bitcoin holders, and share bitcoin's entire transaction history prior to the fork. Also, the "real" bitcoin after the 2x hardfork apparently cannot be determined by node count, hashpower, or price, but rather "whatever core/blockstream decides it to be". This kind of highly controlled information is not what bitcoin was supposed to be about. Bitcoin nodes decide consensus, NOT bitcoin core devs. So it is essential that free and open communication can take place within the community. Also, if you actually compare the content of r/bitcoin vs r/btc, you will see far more technical conversation in the latter. The former is plagued with memes, and whenever I ask technical questions in that sub, they rarely get answered.
    And then we have Blockstream as an entity, which I think the pooling of core devs into a for-profit company selling sidechains is a worrying concept for the supposed impartiality of Bitcoin. The community needs to be able to discuss this potential conflict of interest freely, and keep checks to make sure bitcoin is not being concentrated in a few hands and stealthily privatised.

    That said, I still support the original chain (for now) and hope that lightning will put a temporary end to the scaling debate, but I think it's important to have a plurality of voices in this space, and I think it's good that bitcoin cash exists in case bitcoin ceases to be the open source currency we want it to be. My main worry with it, however, is the lack of devs working on bitcoin cash, and the cosyness between those devs and the miners, who have their own financial incentives.

    Totally agree with you friend..don't get me biggest portion of my portfolio is in BTC, but i wish the devs would have all got together and tried to improve BTC together instead of splitting off..i have a lot of friends that held back on investing because of the confusion and scalibility concerns..they don't like the cost of transactions with BTC…some have invested in BTH…either way , it may be wise to have some as a hedge against problems with SEDG or BTC in general…it's such a mess right now..i've never seen so much hate and filth going around the interweb didn't used to be like this

    I get the same kind of excitement over bitcoin cash as I got over the original bitcoin when I heard about it in 2010. They have already created a 1GB block on a testnet and are starting to prove that on chain scaling is the way to go, and that we don't need to settle for 1MB blocks and high fees, or wait on things that may never come or work properly like Lightning Network. Merchants and businesses are going to rapidly start supporting it as it makes much more sense for them as the user experience is so much better when the fees are low and the transactions actually get confirmed in a reasonable time, which was the way Bitcoin always worked before the blocks started to become full.

    i have a limited understanding…but im seeing btc cash possibly being the dominant chain..lower fees, transaction times and with difficult readjusting soft fork coming it makes sense that the mining power will move to btc cash and that will cement its dominance. also i get the impression that btc core is trying to be like ethereum instead of being btc and keeping it simple as currency,store of value, etc..does this make sense?

    BTC is expensive to do transactions with BCH is cheap. Who would want to use BTC in the real world to buy items when your going to pay 4-8 in transaction fees. BCH you'll pay 0.02-0.50 range. I still yet to see Roger Ver buy a cup of coffee with his bitcoin cash though. 😉 BTC/BCH will both exist in the end.

    I've been watching your channel for months. I really like your opinion but I would say that your predictions on coins such as LTC, ETH and others were way off. I believe it will apply here as well. BCH is pretty much owned by Bitmain. It's unprofitable to mine, no long term goals, no mainstream support and I believe $600 is way overpriced. I wouldn't buy at $300 back then and I definitely wouldn't buy at $600 now
