TL;DR: August 1st, 2019 marks two years of Bitcoin Cash (BCH). For the Bitcoin Cash Turns 2 episode, we gathered together entrepreneurs, application developers, node implementation experts, and adoption gurus to reflect on what is an eternity in the cryptocurrency space. Hear thoughts from a diverse cast of voices on BCH such as Vin Armani, Amaury Séchet, Akane Yokoo, Josh Ellithorpe, and Gabriel Cardona. This history-making podcast is available embedded in the article below, and on YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Radio Public, Breaker, PocketCasts, PodBean, and Overcast.
Bitcoin Cash Turns 2: Armani, Séchet, Akane, Ellithorpe, Cardona
We begin the episode from Bitcoin ABC lead developer Amaury Séchet. He starts hopeful, but goes on to strike a decidedly sober tone. He believes BCH is at a turning point, and that the community has taken infrastructure for granted too, too long. It would be easy to edit his comments out, turn this into a cheerleading session, but that’s not ethical. Agree with Séchet or find him coarse, but to ignore such a pivotal figure in the BCH project is not advisable.
From there, we have heavy-hitting developer Josh Ellithorpe. He’s active on projects like CashShuffle, among many, many others, and his knowledge of BCH is so vast, so authoritative, we’ve sprinkled his thoughts throughout, weaving-in others as he lays down the vast expanse of what Bitcoin Cash is becoming. It’s pretty awe-inspiring.
Vin Armani of CoinText gives his usual pithy and profound take, and he’s careful to remember how he too was a skeptic at earlier points in BCH history, preferring the fork that gave way to Bitcoin Cash never happened. His reflection and eventual embrace of the project is something many can identify with.
Gabriel Cardona, philosopher and developer, is also weaved-in and for good measure, waxing on where BCH has been and where he believes it is headed. He’s easily one of the most passionate people in the cryptocurrency ecosystem and is widely respected. To move away slightly from the developer saturation (not a bad thing, but it can get myopic), we were sure to invite someone to give a more in-flesh, human perspective. There’s probably no one better than Akane Yokoo. She organizes and hosts Bitcoin Cash MeetUps all over the world, and has made the Tokyo BCH weekly gathering something people actually travel to attend from around the globe. Her perspective is invaluable and rounds out this history-making podcast.
