It is November 14, 2020. Tonight I was trying to send $200 worth of Bitcoin to my wife for her to pay some bills. It is funny because, the only reason I was trying to send her BTC is because she believes Bitcoin is better thant Bitcoin Cash. We always have this healthy fight of which one is better BTC or BCH? Tonight was the night my wife found out the truth.
I am in Canada right now for business so there is nothing faster and more secure than to send money through crypto. My wife insisted to send her Bitcoin. Once I was ready to do that I saw that I was being charged over $21 to send $200. WTF??? I thought it might have been a mistake so I waited 10 min to see if it would be corrected.
After that time, the fees had increased!!
I took a screenshot and sent it to my wife. What followed was one of the most rewarding things I heard in 2020…
“Fuck that!! Send me BCH I ain’t letting you pay for those fees babe”
After years of fighting and arguing this was all it took for me to convert my wife from a BTC Maximalist to a BCH lover. Why do you ask? These are the properties that made me and millions of people fall in love with Bitcoin Cash:
Like Satoshi Nakamoto intended… Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash
Let’s be honest, I believe Bitcoin has a place in the current market, but it doesn’t work anymore as it was intended to be. You cannot expect to pay $21 fees per a transaction of $200. So what if I try to buy a coffee? Should I pay $2 for a $4 dollar coffee? What is going to happen when the fees are more expensive than the amount that you are trying to send?
I am so glad Bitcoin Core team is making it easy for people like me to bring people over to Bitcoin Cash.
