When I started to be interested in the cryptocurrencies the divorce between Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash was already a thing of the past.
Anyway, lurking on forums and Reddit, it was impossible not to breathe the consequences of this divorce: an incessant, sometimes veiled, often explicit and aggressive, claim about who is the real Bitcoin and about who has the right to exist.
I always stayed out of this kind of disputations, I never liked them, for many reasons. For example because I think it damages the curiosity of who approaches the crypto world for the first time. Confusion and confrontation scare, and this constitutes a barrier to the diffusion of the cryptocurrency among the common people.
Another reason is that I don't understand why instead of describing what is powerful, efficient, convenient, someone prefers to have enemies to hate, to degrade, to annihilate. Is this necessary? Does it help people to understand the correctness and superiority of an idea, of a position, of a technology? I don't think so.
But above all, I believe that after the fork, two coins with so much different personalities are born, coins that instead of being in competition are complementary, because the motivations of their existence are, or became, deeply opposite. I believe this so much that I think the success of one will help the destiny of the other, and vice versa.
Why do I think so? Because if I need to use, to send or to receive cryptocurrency my mind goes immediately to the best choice for this, Bitcoin Cash. And this choice has been selected by the experience and confirmed when I tried the Lightning Network, the solution proposed by the Bitcoin Core community for fast and cheap little payments, simply because this increases complexity, produces risks, causes troubles, for doing something that it's already very comfortable and easy to do when you use Bitcoin Cash.
On the contrary, Bitcoin is fine for who wants to hold, a kind of saving account, in the hope the value will increase year after year.
So the way I see it, Bitcoin Cash should continue to do what it does best: being the coin that constantly move, that reaches everyone, fast, risk-free and with low fees! the CASH inside the mobiles of the people that want to use digital money.
Bitcoin is another thing now, it's a coin that as soon as reaches a cold wallet stops to move, a piggy bank that the owners don't want to break. Should Bitcoin Cash desire to be this? It never wanted to be, so I hope not!
Bitcoin Cash lives in the wallets and in the purses, participating in the daily life of the common people.
Bitcoin Core sleeps in the darkness of the strongboxes, away from the daylight.
This is why I don't feel a war between them is reasonable: they are so different and this can be convenient for all, because in a opposite way they are both useful.
This is why I won't be a soldier.
