Your argument for market cap determining a protocol is weak.
A better analogy than a football team would be if the TCP protocol for the internet changed. One, it would be completely different, two, the internet would no longer run or there would be serious compatability issues for people running the old protocol.
Bitcoin is a protocol, it is set in stone, no changing, so people can reliably build upon and use it in the long term.
You can’t fork Bitcoin. You can fork off of bitcoin, and that is what the protocol trading under the BTC ticker has done with SegWit.
Regulators will easily understand this, especially when there is a known creator with the intellectual property to the original code and whitepaper.
Another issue is that what made bitcoin unique and innovative was it’s economic security model, the on chain activity protects the network. BTC have limited the network to 1MB seriously compromising the network security.
As the block ‘reward’ (subsidy) goes to zero, the network is more and more protected by fees - miners, nodes, are profit seekers. If there’s no profit there’s no network.
So there’s two options. Either there is huge on-chain transaction volume and low fees. Or low transaction volume like 7 per second as it is on BTC and extremely high fees.
Now the BTC has no utility at 7 transactions per second as a global finance network, it will have even less utility with extremely high unpredictable transaction fees.
BTC is secured by 'number go up’
That is a very weak security model.
Bitcoin (currently trading under the BSV ticker) is secured by large scale. They have already done 1,000 transactions per second on chain. Test net has mined a gigabyte block that contained millions of transactions that equaled 9,100 transactions per second. The return to genesis upgrade is Feb 4. Expect to see that acheived on chain soon.
It took me a while to wake up from the Craig is a fraud hypnosis. I hope you and others look beyond that narrative. I would suggest you watch or skim through the coingeek conferences on YouTube to see the calibre of entrepreneurs and developers building on BSV.
I hope you realise the truth if my arguments also. They will become more clear as time goes on and the reward keeps shrinking. The sooner you understand this the sooner you can act and the greater your profit. Profit seeking is more successful when you understand things about the future before others.
