Why do BTC Maxis hate everything else?


Satoshi Nakamoto was open to the idea of other coins.

Hal Finney: Satoshi, are you endorsing the idea that additional block chains would each create their own flavor of coins, which would trade with bitcoins on exchanges? These chain-specific coins would be used to reward miners on those chains, and to purchase some kinds of rights or privileges within the domain of that chain?

Satoshi: Right, the exchange rate between domains and bitcoins would float.

Why do BTC maxis defend Bitcoin with a religious fervor that the founder didn’t seem to have?

Why are they closed off to the notion that other ideas or experiments with blockchains can have merit?

Immutabiltiy = good

Programmability also = good
