Bitcoin Cash Reference Client Looks to Raise Sustainable Funding

“My focus right now is to get us funded,” Bitcoin ABC’s George Donnelly told us. He’s singularly focused due to an ongoing debate over just how to make that happen for BCH. The conversation ignited in late January of this year after an influential mining pool owner put forward the Infrastructure Funding Plan for Bitcoin Cash (IFP).

As the community provided feedback, much of it angrily, what was clear became how the main reference implementation for BCH needed to rethink its immediate strategy. The IFP appears to be on temporary hold, but it did bring to the front a need for sustained development funding for protocols.

Donnelly is motivated in two ways. One, he’s now associated formally with Bitcoin ABC, and so as it goes so does his reputation. But another catalyst for his enthusiasm, as he explained to CoinSpice, is that he wants to continue his BCH adoption work in Latin America. He needs a well-funded infrastructure to be able to gain others’ confidence in using crypto, and especially in the emerging world.
