If Roger Ver and Jihan Wu can take over Bitcoin simply by buying warehouses and loading them with servers, then there's no way Bitcoin can survive malicious state actors. If Roger and Jihan can just "buy it," then the Bitcoin experiment has failed.
I don't think most people appreciate the magnitude of this crucial watershed moment. Whether you support Bitcoin Unlimited or Core, this is the place where the future is decided. Even if Jihan and Roger are benevolent (which I do not believe they are), and they do nothing harmful to Bitcoin after a fork, the very fact that the fork was able to happen (allowed to happen?) will be the final nail in Bitcoin's coffin. No amount of "benevolence" can convince state actors to refrain from doing exactly what Jihan and Roger are now attempting if Roger and Jihan successfully take over the network.
And if you think state actors aren't watching this war very carefully, you are delusional. Because if Jihan and Roger are successful, their party will be extremely short; China, Russia, the U.S., and every other major power will immediately start amassing processing power to end this threat immediately.
If, however, Bitcoin can prove that Jihan and Roger are nothing more than a summer cold, then we have much to look forward to. My deepest hope is that Jihan and Roger are the test Bitcoin needs – right here, and right now. And I believe, when Bitcoin passes this test, the future will be unimaginably bright. I hope this vision is the correct one.
