Lazy and entitled developers who are not providing value in the free market are running low on cash.
They beg for people to give them money, and say it is for "necessary improvements" to an already functioning cryptocurrency.
Heroes like Roger Ver give them generous amounts of money but their greed is never satisfied.
They are too lazy to get a job. They instead decide to FORCE the mining reward to fund their inferior project and prodigal lifestyles.
Bitcoin ABC, you guys can't even remove the 25 chained transaction limit and you think you deserve MORE of our money? That is a change that takes 1 minute of coding! The superior Bitcoin Unlimited already removed it months ago!
Bitcoin ABC should die off if they can't get funding. Because their product is inferior to other implementations.
This is called natural selection, an awesome feature of free markets.

We will only fund your project if it provides us value. You are vainglorious to believe that you can spend the miner's money more effectively than they can.
The Bitcoin Cash tax is welfare for entitled developers.
