There's a lot of buzz on social media lately about a narrative that BCHN wants to split from BCH. Some prominent figures in BCH that are good friends with Amaury Sechet have been "rumoring" publicly that BCHN wants to split BCH.
Let me go on the record and be very clear here: Nobody.. And I mean nobody in BCHN or any of the other people involved in BCH wants a split! Nobody is talking about a split, nobody is thinking about a split -- hell, when we go out for ice cream, we don't even order banana splits! Let me be clear: We want to maintain unity and maintain a strong BCH. "BCHN wants to split" is a fictional narrative. It's completely made up. Kind of like Santa Clause.
But even Santa Clause serves a purpose, right? We tell children stories of 'Ol St. Nick in order to stimulate their imagination, elicit a response, and get them excited about the magic of Christmas. We also do it, maybe, to get them to behave a little bit (with varying degrees of actual success). That's why we keep the Santa Clause legend around.
Ok, that's Santa. That's a fictional narrative that is easily explained. However, one must wonder -- why in the world would ABC and those friendly with Amaury Sechet be pushing this ficitonal narrative that BCHN wants to split BCH? What purpose could it possibly serve? Discredit BCHN? Stir the pot? Mud sling? Perhaps. But Sechet is not one to mince words without purpose -- especially on twitter.
His purpose is to form a narrative now, which will "come true" later, and get to say "I told you these guys were trouble". It's called getting ahead of the story.
Well, let me get ahead of the story here too and tell you my prediction. I, Calinstradamus Culianamus, predict the following: ABC will do something incredibly wreckless to almost guarantee a split of BCH come Nov. 15th 2020. And the most likely thing they could possibly do is push a consensus change that pays them directly from coinbase, as they attempted to do last time, but this time it will have no BIP9 voting/activation -- it will just automatically activate Nov. 15th.
ABC is banking on the ecosystem not really being aware of the issues and not caring. In his mind, exchanges just install the latest ABC. Miners pretty much do the same. He can just do this -- and then blame BCHN for being "bad actors" that want to "split BCH".
You heard it here first, folks.
