A few centuries ago, China banned a major decentralized system that was used for peer-to-peer international transactions (maritime trading). The ban (海禁) has reduced the international influence of China, and made China so weak that European countries eventually colonized it.

Fun Fact: The number of SegWit transactions is already higher than the total amount of BCH transactions

Let's take a short break from trolling and FUDing and look at the facts for a change.

Avg. # of BTC Segwit tx (10-block-average): 47 (increasing)

block 484379 total: 2255 Segwit: 25 block 484380 total: 2019 Segwit: 41 block 484381 total: 1945 Segwit: 46 block 484382 total: 2236 Segwit: 51 block 484383 total: 2083 Segwit: 33 block 484384 total: 2637 Segwit: 63 block 484385 total: 1700 Segwit: 43 block 484386 total: 2420 Segwit: 46 block 484387 total: 1790 Segwit: 62 block 484388 total: 2570 Segwit: 59 

Avg. # BCH tx (per block, 24-hour-average): 38 (stagnant)

(good thing that BCH has that 8MB blocksize!)

Fact: 47 > 38

Reminder: Congress has no authority to tell you what currency you may use in legal voluntary transactions. You have a right to financial privacy and it is your RESPONSIBILITY to Defend it.

Stop cucking around with this congressional power grab. Instead tell those leeching fucks in D.C. to get the fuck out your biz, they are obsolete and have no authority. GTFO with that bullshit bill.
