I want to hear BCHN make their best case. I am having a hard time believing or trusting such a newly devised development team (less than 6 months old, disregarding individual history of each member as loyalties can change through concerted bribes as we saw when Andreas Antonopoulos and a whole bunch of other old-timer Bitcoiners sold out collectively around the time of Blockstream formation). To a certain extent, time in the game is skin in the game so I want to hear them out, preferably if they don't attack people for asking honest questions. (I will try not to comment further here. I am a liar.) submitted by
My name is Richie Lai, I am the co-founder of Bittrex, one of the longest running cryptocurrency exchanges on earth.
Today I’m joined by a few colleagues and friends to answer your questions about the Bitcoin halving. With the spike in interest in Bitcoin because of the economy, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the halving around the corner, we thought this would be an interesting discussion.
I’ve been involved with Bitcoin since the very early days; mining in 2011, our first bitcoin business in 2012, and finally Bittrex in 2013. Our business now has millions of users and the Bitcoin Halving aka “The Halvening” has been top of mind for everyone recently. As the Halvening approaches, we are working 24/7 to support the increased demand—so ask us anything about the Bitcoin Halving!
By the way, in celebration of the Bitcoin Halvening we are also hosting a reddit giveaway of half of a Bitcoin for someone in the USA, and another half of a Bitcoin for someone outside the USA. Contest details will be shared on Bitcoin
Joining us today on IAmA
