A new Bitcoin-Cash-accepting merchant is signed, photos on Twitter, listing on Marco Coino, bam, #WINNING, am I right? Sorry, no. After 2 years of doing crypto mass adoption in Latin America, I have seen this situation repeated so many times it gives me a migraine.
What Happened with Dash?
I’ve gotten this question a few times and it is probably best I address it in public once and for all. Comments will be open for a short time so that those who do not share my narrative may leave theirs. I created and operated a very successful proposal in the Dash treasury system for […]
We need more people around here. Sure, Bitcoin Cash runs on code. We need quality code that creates the right financial incentives and makes the game theory work. And hashrate. But then what? We need people. That peer to peer thing in the whitepaper means person to person, after all.

Every city or country has its idiosyncrasies, but from Porto Alegre, Brazil to Quito, Ecuador and […]
