As lead maintainer of Bitcoin Cash Node (BCHN), it saddens me when I see a respected member of the Bitcoin Cash community present a counterfactual and incorrect picture of our open source project.
I've highly admired Hayden Otto's work to promote Bitcoin Cash adoption, not only in Australia but everywhere. He has the right idea of BCH's importance and capability to uplift people, and he acts with the conviction of his beliefs.
A strong will is a good thing if informed by facts. If not, it can be destructive, to others and to one's own work.
Recently, Hayden posted the following comment on Twitter regarding the recent disagreements over what replacement difficulty algorithm should be used for BCH.
This 'full comment' is wrong on several fronts which I would like to emphasize to promote a better understanding.
Fixing the DAA is a priority issue for many in BCH and was brought up in 2019 among conferencegoers at Bitcoin Cash City conference in Australia.
All confirmation times of transactions are affected by current broken DAA, not only exchange deposits.
Grasberg is not an enhancement over ASERT at all. It performs worse in simulations.
BCHN was not created to rally against ABC, but to avoid a split and disinvestment of stakeholders that was likely to be caused by ABC's IFP proposal, evidenced by the signatures of a huge part of the BCH ecosystem.
BCHN has been adopted by miners and businesses that build on BCH, to a greater extent than is widely known.
BCHN exists on donations, has public, auditable bookkeeping and does not endorse calling anyone who uses competing cryptocurrencies an "enemy operative". Many BCH miners mine those chains, even those who have in the past funded ABC.
Bitcoin Cash is more than Bitcoin ABC. To claim otherwise is misleading.
It is my sincere hope that Hayden reflects on the issues.
The door at BCHN is always open for him and anyone else to get to know the professional team of dedicated contributors who have as much interest in the success of Bitcoin Cash as he does.
