Jimmy’s “divorce” metaphor is fitting. As a former marriage and family therapist, I have met couples who separated amicably. But there is no amicable separation in the cards for Bitcoin.
We are all its “children” and it is the children who suffer the most in divorce. Those who imagine a “clean separation” are being wishful. In wars or divorces of attrition, which this would be, the damage can linger for decades. I’ve seen it.
