That website’s, in specifically that article’s, position confuses people.
That site, named oddly enough, BITCOIN dot COM, is anti-Bitcoin and pro Bitcoin Cash.
bitcoin.org is the right address people should be directed to.
Some responses to the article
- “Not having replace-by-fee does not make unconfirmed transactions safe.”
- “Confirmed transactions are irreversible even with SegWit.”
- “SegWit signatures are not removed from the transactions.”
- SegWit is not a required
- True to white paper or not, bitcoin needs to be advanced as technology does but obviously has to tread very, very carefully. It cannot stay true to the paper word-for-word.
- ~18 % of all bitcoin transactions are taking place to SegWit addresses. http://segwit.party/charts/
I also seriously question the motives of the group of people who were good for bitcoin community for so long trying to take total control of it.
The development stays in the Core devs hand, as they are the core developers.
This fighting will continue, sadly.
I can certainly understand the concern about change specially when it comes to one’s own wealth. But this is why Bitcoin doesn’t trust, it verifies.
