Before the IFP nonsense the BCH ecosystem had funding for:
A new and improved DAA
Easy token creation using Mint
People building games on BCH / SLP
The fantastic Electron Cash Wallet
Multiple full node implementation teams
Full Nodes as a service with fullstack.cash
Major exchanges starting derivative trading for BCH
Everything happening with the Bitcoin.com wallet
And so much more
Now all we have is a bunch of internal arguing.
The forcing of an IFP by ABC is looking likely to derail the amazing progress BCH has been making.
