In uncertain times, show support for BTC. Run a full node.

The easiest way to demonstrate support for BTC is to run a full node, even if you don't have any BTC.

Network value is a function of the sum and interconnected-ness of it's nodes. Bitcoin is such a network.

All you have to do is download the Bitcoin Core software, available for any major platform, install it, and let it do it's thing.

You need about 190GB of storage space – cheap.

Take the extra step to ensure you can accept incoming connections to ensure you're announcing to the network; you'll need to either forward those ports and/or enable them in your computer firewall as well.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Fiat money is essentially proof-of-stake where the ones with most stake run the full nodes (banks) and everybody else runs SPV. Whatever changes to consensus (money supply) we just have to accept. Our choice is to hard fork this system and start a new currency.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Did you know that 99.999 percent of Bitcoin Cash was made by Bitcoin Core developers? The only thing Bitcoin Cash developers has done is increasing the block size… Bitcoin Cash is an altcoin. The Lightning Network has more full nodes than Bitcoin Cash.

There is only one Bitcoin and that is BTC. Bitcoin is the most secure and decentralized cryptocurrency, it’s the perfect store of value and with Lightning Network you can make micro payments too. Do the world really need Bitcoin Cash? I think the Bitcoin Cash project will fail. I am not rude ( calling it Bcash ) I’m just realistic. Have a nice day people. This is all my own opinion.
