Bitcoin Core team member Matt Corallo has said that Bitcoin maximalists are an “endangered species” and has urged them to stop attacking other projects.
According to him:
“There was a time when pretty much everything except Bitcoin was a crypto scam. But this has not been true for a long time, and the ‘smart money’ has moved on to finding out which projects are moving somewhere, and which ones are a direct Pump & Dump.”
He believes that the “most vocal proponents” are counterproductively attacking other communities instead of promoting the “greatness and uniqueness” of digital gold.
Corallo believes it makes more sense in discussions to focus on the qualities of Bitcoin that make it “a real candidate for being a truly neutral currency for the Internet.”
He believes the “narrative wars” will escalate with the transition of Ethereum to the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm.
