The uncensored Bitcoin Core $BTCC coindesk interview

Here is the remaining interview that was not published by coindesk.

– Who’s a part of the team?

The team is a diverse collection of Bitcoin developers, contributors and enthusiasts. A federation of soverign individuals who are coming together to further the vision of a decenetralized trust network.

– How did this idea come about?

The idea for Bitcoin Core ($BTCC) had its inception in the days leading up to the original hardfork of BCH and the 2X fork. At its roots, are many of the same values and passions and people involved in the UASF movement.

– Can you tell me more about the Bitcoin Core name choice?

Bitcoin Core ($BTCC) is a commitment to the core values of Bitcoin.

I realize that it’s a joke, making fun of people who call bitcoin “Bitcoin Core.” But what’s the benefit of making “Bitcoin Core” a real thing?

Bitcoin Core ($BTCC) is not a joke. Once BCH forked to create a “big block” version, it allowed for experimentation in this implementation. Bitcoin Core ($BTCC) is a representation of the core values of Bitcoin in action.

– Why keep the original bitcoin cash chain alive?

The original was kept alive as an experimental test bed, and in case there was ever a use for it to make a positive contribution to Bitcoin. It was, and is, a labor of love.

– Aren’t altcoins scams?

Great question. The definition of a scam is a “dishonest scheme” or a fraud. A scam is claimimg to be something, or someone, that you are not. With regard to altcoins being scams, anything or anyone who claims to be something that they are not are trying to gain the confidence of another to defraud them. That is where the term con-man comes from. Con-men want you to “trust” them. In fact, they rely on another’s trust, that make false claims to gain the confidence of others to defraud them. Con-men are scammers, and to your question, some alt coins are used to scam people. Con-men use people’s confidence in them to defraud them into investing in their altcoin. Cryptocurrencies, like humans, are vehicles for values. If the founder is a “scammer” then their coin will be a vehicle of the values of that founder. They will use their coin to defraud others. They will make false claims about themselves or their coin that are meant to gain the confidence of investors. That makes it a scam, not an altcoin. So it’s all about the core values.

– What happened to Bitcoin Clashic?

Bitcoin Clashic was maintained, nourished, experimented on, and its code reworked and updated, in preparation for adding value to the ecosystem. That chain was forked on (date) and renamed to Bitcoin Core ($BTCC).

– What are the team’s future plans for development?

Having access to “big blocks” gives us the ability to do some really cool things.

As our reason for being is precisely not to compete with Bitcoin but to add value to the ecosystem, we want to experiment with two things: 1. speed 2. privacy

We see faster blocktimes in our near future, and a bit farther out, confidential transactions by default.

We are going to experiment with much faster block times, to make it near instant and useable in point of sale systems.

Further, privacy is been partly written off on Bitcoin, we however, hold privacy as a “core value”… we have a vision to bring privacy to bitcoin, and add confidential transactions as a default feature to bitcoin core $BTCC.

Who should I attribute the above responses to?

The Bitcoin Core developers and contributors.

Is everyone on the team anonymous?

Yes. Bitcoin Core is focused on the message, developing the code, and the community. We do not promote personality.

The official site is thebitcoincore.org

As BTCC is really for the people, and in the hands of the people, we are seeing multiple instances where the community expresses their voice. Some members of the community decided to have some fun and leverage the publicity. However, the Bitcoin Core developers are committed to delivering a unique value proposition, adhering to core values, and offering increased speed and enhanced privacy.

4) The privacy features sound interesting. BUT, the website says (or at least used to say) Roger Ver / CNBC advocated for BTCC. Which seems like a joke/trolling, since he was talking about bitcoin, not BTCC.

The community is diverse and so are the voices within it. Some members of the community took the opportunity to leverage the publicity.

5) And the Bitcoin Core (BTCC) Twitter has a photo of John McAfee in space, lol. I want to hear more about all that and the ideas behind all that. :p

Again, as serious as we are about delivering a unique value proposition, the community has multiple voices and obviously some have a great sense of humor. McAfee is one of those crypto-characters that are ripe for some fun memes.

Bitcoin Cash Price Gets Skewed due to Exchange Trickery

A lot of confusing action is taking place where the Bitcoin Cash price is concerned. Although its actual decline in value is quite obvious for everyone to see, the real price of BCH is not necessarily what people can see on Coinmarketcap. This is primarily because numerous exchanges treat BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash already despite nothing being decided in terms of which chain will be the longest. Bitcoin Cash Value Fluctuates Heavily Depending on where traders look at, the price of Bitcoin Cash will be either close to the $400 level or down to $250-ish. That is quite a large gap between prices, yet one that is also very easy to explain. Bitcoin Cash, as people knew it before the fork, no longer exists. Most professional exchanges have also retired this price ticker, for the time being. As the hash war rages on, there are still a lot of unknown factors waiting to be addressed. Despite this ongoing kerfuffle, there is a net 5.76% decrease in the Bitcoin Cash price, and a 5.4% decline over Bitcoin. More specifically, that is what CoinMarketCap reports at this time, although this is not necessarily the case whatsoever. In fact, some exchanges are clearly jumping the gun by labeling BCHABC as BCH and thus dragging the Bitcoin Cash price down a bit more. Exchanges currently engaging in this activity include Bittrex and Coinex, neither of which plays a big role of importance when it comes to trading. However, based on the current value of BCH on Bitfinex and Gate.io, it seems a similar incident is taking place. One also has to keep in mind Bitcoin Cash was getting battered ahead of the network split as well. Most exchanges have halted trading of BCH indefinitely, primarily because the currency no longer exists. It is evident either BCHABC or BCHSV will take over that name in the future, but nothing has been decided at this point. As such, any trading referring to just “Bitcoin Cash” or “BCH” should be avoided, as most users can never be sure which currency is effectively being traded under this name. All of this skews the picture pertaining to Bitcoin Cash altogether. Coinmarketcap reports there is still $392m in trading volume for BCH, even though that is virtually impossible right now. With so many exchanges freezing deposits and withdrawals, it is evident actual BCH trading is no longer possible whatsoever. Virtually all platforms have deposits of BCHSV and BCHABC frozen as well, which only makes this market trend more confusing. It is safe to say the entire network split has been a bit of a mess first and foremost. In the case of Bitcoin Cash itself, that name will – under the current circumstances- not be used across exchanges for much longer. Instead, the two separate camps need to be treated as such first and foremost. Until things settle down – with might not necessarily happen anytime soon – the Bitcoin Cash price itself is pretty much irrelevant for most traders and speculators.
