Power laws and Network Effects: Why BitcoinCash is not a free lunch
Nic Carter

A great theoretical exercise here, but I can’t see this holding in practice. I know this is a worst-case, big O approach to the situation but it’s also equivalent to saying that all Bitcoin traders are religious in their belief of an ideal chain structure.

The use of Ethereum’s split as a precedent is also disingenuous, since it didn’t, and still doesn’t, have near the same amount of financial value and definitely wasn’t designed to accomplish the same goals. It’s a bit like using the growth of grapes to predict the growth of apples; there are similarities but they are fundamentally different.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
