They haven't created a "religion" nor a "cult". I agree examples of "tribalism" are rampant among many Bitcoin supporters (as well as other cryptos, this one included) but I don't think that wording fits at all in any case that it's used related to new crypto tech communities. It's insulting and inflammatory, but not very accurate.
I'm still not really sure how all those super intelligent people support POW if it is as unnecessary as the proof-of-stake community claims, including delegated proof of stake.
Because they have created a religion in which all altcoins, and especially all non-PoW coins are scams, and then they refuse to think about the issue any more.
Further, the vast majority of transactions are perfectly fine to be accepted with 0 confirmations. In most use cases bitcoin transactions will be relatively close to how fast current DPOS transactions are. In my opinion there are plenty of benefits from the DPOS system where we don't need to misrepresent the facts, though it is a nice marketing line.
I agree, I don't believe it is a case of "religious/cult" adherence. The whole crypto community is the exact anthesis of that in my view.
I will look at the link, Thanks guys
I have read so much, but it is overwhelming so please bear with me, and other newbies. Having ANYONE attack those who are trying to learn in their own way, and coming to ask questions, is really detrimental to Bitshare's success
You never know who a "newbie" is, and from my experience of personally helping and explaining bitcoin to well over 2000 individuals, I can tell you that sometimes the most unlikely "student/newbie" becomes a beacon of hope, information and growth to the community! Be it Bitcoin, Bitshares or some other alt-coin

-- yes, this is mainly directed at TONYK. (I read a lot of your posts saying where you say you will try to change etc, good luck!) --
