CoinSpice was able to snag the lead developer for Bitcoin ABC, a team dedicated to bringing peer-to-peer electronic money to the world in the form of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Amaury Séchet, for a wide-ranging podcast interview. It has been a hell of a year for him, and he’s now thrust into the crypto celebrity sphere rather reluctantly it seems. On this episode of Milk, listeners will get a sense of where Séchet is at just two months after the chain split of 15 November last year. Whether you’re an investor, code geek, political junky, BCH fan, Séchet’s work and mindset is important to know.
Bitcoin ABC Lead Developer Amaury Séchet Speaks!
Some people really love attention. They like being in the general mix, enjoy attributions and a kind of celebrity importance. I’ve long had the sense Amaury Séchet is not one of those people.
He’s an engineer, a software developer, and seems to prefer that mode. His work in Bitcoin Cash, however, has changed all of that. He’s now a hero, a villian, or guru depending on who is analyzing his contributions to the space.
Without a doubt, he was a pioneer in the most successful fork of Bitcoin Core (BTC) thus far. Safe to write that had Séchet not been around during the scaling debate, much of what we have come to know as Bitcoin Cash would have never happened.
More Than Just Controversies and Code
For that reason alone, he’s important. Since then, however, he’s taken on greater significance in the BCH road map. He’s seen as a main thought leader in how to proceed with incorporating larger blocks while maintaining network integrity.
In this episode, listeners will get a sense of the man, how he sees the world. We don’t just talk about controversies and code. We also discuss his hobbies and how economics is playing a greater role in helping to better understand our relationship to one another.
When I thought I’d taken up too much of his time, we’d find another avenue to chat about. I hope that makes for interesting listening. In any event, he was fun to speak with and I think our conversation will help settle some nerves out there.
