  1. If you buy BTC just because of the Bitcoin name you might be in for a very rude awakening. If you do not understand the blocksize debate, or the role of Blockstream in Bitcoin (BTC) then you owe it to yourself to learn about these things. Ask yourself what is Bitcoin (BTC)’s value proposition. This is a coin that if more than 200K transactions are made per day, a backlog develops and after that only the highest fees transactions go through. Currently this is about $0.10 but as recently as December these fees were over $100. But this is not an accident and its not a technical flaw – Bitcoin (BTC) has been designed to be this way to meet Blockstream’s roadmap for BTC. That is BTC is to remain crippled and to make up for that, 2nd layer solutions like LN take over. If you agree that Bitcoin (BTC) could never have worked as Satoshi Nakamoto designed it and believe that Blockstream has a good roadmap – by all means invest in BTC. For others who believe Bitcoin worked just fine until Blockstream interfered, then Bitcoin Cash (BCH)is the closest coin that matches the original definition of Bitcoin as described in the original white paper by Satoshi Nakamoto. Do not invest blindly – know the technology so you can pick the roadmap that fits you. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is the better Bitcoin. Join us at
