Why Bitcoin cash will force bitcoin to be better than ever.
I really want to see bitcoin cash survive, and grow. If bitcoin cash takes over fine, and if not fine, but the benefit goes to the users either way. Bitcoin cash is about to give bitcoin a run for it's money..... pun intended. If the developers of bitcoin got segwit wrong, if there is a bug, if it doesn't work or if taking the signatures away ends up weakening the security bitcoin cash is there as a ready made safety net to nearly instantly take over as the main chain should segwit or other changes create fatal flaws or bugs. Bitcoin cash is Fast, Secure, cheap honest money. That is the bar bitcoin segwit has to meet or beat to stay alive. Now without bitcoin cash the developers could run a muck or be lead to put in a fatal flaw so the banks can hold on to the legacy system longer. With bitcoin cash already up and running and already setting the bar so high bitcoin will have no choice but to exceed it's rate of improvement and give me the user more and more features. If you take the features of the most competitive altcoins and add them to bitcoin segwit you got a chance to win over the customers (users). Give us anonymity if we need it, (dash and monero) Give us smart contracts (better than either and eos) give us complete functionality on chain (NEM) Give us our own network so we are dependent on internet (maidsafe) Bitcoin segwit has the development team to take the top 10 altcoins and absorb their features. If bitcoin segwit uses their funding for making altcoins obsolete including bitcoin cash then we all win in a big way. If any altcoin is in the top 10 figure out what it offers and include it in bitcoin. Only one coin is needed, the altcoins are just live testnets. If you don't take these top 10 altcoins and make them obsolete you have failed and a team that is smart enough to do this will come along shortly. There is tons of money to be made giving us what we want. Get off your asses and compete with these altcoins or they will eat your lunch. The bar has been set and you better run faster and harder than you ever have before. We want it all, and we want it now. If you won't give it to us, someone else will. Bitcoin cash just made this race interesting. It is real competition. Unlike altcoins who feature one thing over all others bitcoin cash can now be very much like a bitcoin plus. what do you want? bitcoin plus dash?? Bitcoin plus either? Bitcoin plus Maidsafe? we can now start ripping off all these altcoins fully tested features and making the one coin to rule them all. What features do you want to see? The market has already spoken, look at the top 10 cryptos and see the feature list you should be working on.

New to all of this, but a friend suggested MaidSafe instead of Bitcoin. I’d greatly appreciate any opinions on which is better. Thanks!
How to compare Maidsafe tech with Blockchain and Ripple tech to describe to Bitcoiners?
So, being someone that isn't a developer but understands the concepts behind blockchain technologies, I'm trying to find the best way to compare Maidsafe's safecoin transaction consensus to other tech. Ideally, I'd like to find a fast way to pitch the tech of SAFE to people who already know about blockchain/Ripple. These are my observations: There is no global ledger like with the blockchain and instead, SAFE uses a consensus approach using nearby vaults. It's sort of like Ripple but their consensus is comprised of the entire network, not just the nearest nodes. For the Ripple network to function, there still needs to be this concept of a global ledger but they don't call it a blockchain because of the lack of mining for blocks. They are still able to achieve much faster tx speeds because of the consensus approach compared to miners confirming txs in Bitcoin. The nearest vaults strategy in SAFE allows for faster transactions (compared to Ripple) because it's not necessary to push to the whole network. SAFE uses a localized consensus and thus, a localized ledger (aka a decentralized ledger). This localized ledger concept is also used for confirming stored chunks of data on the network. This localized ledger is also dynamic in that when a vault changes location within the network and has new nearby vaults, a new localized ledger is configured for not only the moving vault but the nearby vaults as well. If an entity wants to attack a single vault, the entity must surround the vault with their own vaults to compromise the localized ledger. What I'm not clear about is how SAFE is preventing such an attack. What are the chances that an organization with lots of money to spend on vaults can pull this off? Are there any other chances of attack in the network because of this decentralized ledger? I'm asking because there are a lot of die-hard bitcoiners that have it in their minds that the blockchain tech is the solution to everything and they'll most likely try to pick apart the vulnerabilities in the decentralized ledger concept. Cheers!
