Why Bitcoin and XRP maximalism is on the rise; are fanatics running out of arguments?


If you’re a fan of cutting-edge schemes and enhanced technologies, you’d know what I’m talking about. Bitcoin has ruled over the market for more than a decade. Yet maximalists have this innate need of claiming that no-one can oppose Bitcoin.

Isn’t this exactly what Satoshi fought against? Jordan Peterson says, “Group Thinking is dangerous”. A horde of morons can do more harm than good. IOTA is planning to bring about smart cities, Dash is growing in Latin America, Cosmos tends to focus on interoperability, Chainlink is trying to revolutionize smart contracts; all these projects are separate but they have specific goals to achieve.

Yet the XRPArmy and Bitcoin Maximalists feel they have to stifle innovation for the sake of their beloved asset. XRP has been a bad investment throughout this year, numerous reports have clarified this news. The Lightning Network has a whole list of problems, but BTC zealots choose to look away.

The point I’m trying to make is profoundly simple: Live and Let Live. Not everyone will be fixated on just two leading ventures. Choices vary, for we are humans after all. Our minds are unique, just like our body and soul. Stop trying to control outcomes far beyond your reach.
