Bitcoin Fungibility: The Most Important Feature?

While I think these advances are theoretically very interesting, we are ignoring a pile of other proposals that have been made outside of the Bitcoin Core development groupthink that approach the subject of scalability (while preserving and improving both the decentralised and fungibility requirements of Bitcoin)… such as Bitcoin-NG, ByzCoin, and zkSNARKs (used in Zcash to achieve total unlinkability [hides addresses and values]).

Bitcoin Core seems to suffer from a ‘not made here’ complex when it comes to:

1) Alternate approaches to solving these challenges

2) Comparative analysis of proposals inside and outside of Core to empirically determine the best path forward
