Nothing special. Just Satoshi Nakamoto casually forecasting what a stupid idea Bcash would be in 2010…

"If the second version screwed up, the user experience would reflect badly on both, although it would at least reinforce to users the importance of staying with the official version. If someone was getting ready to fork a second version, I would have to air a lot of disclaimers about the risks of using a minority version. This is a design where the majority version wins if there's any disagreement, and that can be pretty ugly for the minority version[…]."

This regret of past purchases with Bitcoin is stupid

No one is regretting that they've bought Pentium 133 pc back in '95 for 1000 dollars when now they can get orders of magnitude faster hardware for the same price right now (and they can get 133 for free probably). This is what was available at the time of purchase.

With Bitcoin it's the same story. Who cares that for one Bitcoin you couldn't buy even a pack of gum and now it gets you 500 pizzas.
