Contingency Plan (Episode 3)

I deal out some apologies as well as play with the idea whether or not forking is “good” for your blockchain of choice. I’m really liking the idea that people who want a fork are really just trying to pump the value of the original chain. The forks are meant to die. They are meant to pump, but that pump has to be exchanged into something that they can not be held responsible for in the future. It makes sense to me that Ver will cash out of Bitcoin Cash.

Also, there have been a few casualties of the blockchain wars, and I hope people realize it’s nothing personal. Word travels fast in these small circles. I don’t mean to offend people. At the same time, it’s hard for these new leaders of finance to be put on a pedestal and not be ridiculed. It’s all in good fun. No one knows the right answers.

Minor speculations on BTG and XMR. Plus — does GloBee bring FluffyPony and Monero out of the “Science Experiment” phase?

Rebuttals to Rebuttals from Episode 1 as well as some quick updates on Bitcoin Gold and trying to get situated before it goes on the Livenet. I go over what Bitcoin Gold competes with, and why is it really beneficial to promote technology that is really good at SHA256D rather than something that would help the development of OpenGl or CUDA in regards to mining.
It may help to read the comments from the first episode on SoundCloud. Most of this episode is a rebuttal to John, and I mumble through the majority of what he asks me, out loud, because I assumed other people would be reading the comments. I’m still working on format here. I like the organic nature of the show, but it’s a little too stoney.

This started from a conversation I was having with John Carvalho a.k.a BitcoinErrorLog about the possibility of Bitcoin being replaced with “Bitcoin”, or Bitcoin alternatives, and whether or not it would be appropriate to call a fork or alt of Bitcoin, “Bitcoin”, if enough people use. I believe if in fact the utility of today’s Bitcoin-Core is usurped by an alternative, although it wouldn’t be Bitcoin, it could be “Bitcoin”. “Bitcoin” or the idea and culture of Bitcoin is more than just Bitcoin-Core. Many are reliant on multiple forms of cryptocurrencies in accompaniment to Bitcoin to complete transactions. Even something like Dogecoin plays a significant role in the way value is moved around exchanges. Although liquidity is generally accepted as Bitcoin’s purpose, perhaps other currencies serve other roles that Bitcoin’s prosperity depends on.

I didn’t plan for this to be the first episode.
