Jonald Fyookball: Warnings are Coming From a Place of Passion
Fyookball doesn’t do many interviews. He’s a coveted voice among movers and shakers in the Bitcoin Cash community, prized for his insights, skin in the game, and sobriety. So it was a great excuse to get him on the CoinSpice Podcast to chat about his recent essay on governance and the culture of BCH.
It’s a warning of sorts, but not too polemical. He’s simply trying to weigh-in on the debates happening within various social media forums about competing BCH implementations, decision making processes, and how to cultivate a culture wary of contentious hard forks leading to chain splits.
There are a bunch of revelations here, though this isn’t Fyookball’s dark night of the soul moment. He’s had some ideas crystallize in recent months, thought more deeply about his assumptions, and has come to some definite conclusions regarding a way forward for global, permissionless peer-to-peer electronic cash.
