The Bitcoin Game #57: BCH Lead Dev Amaury Séchet

Welcome to episode 57 of The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I’m someone who feels a bit like a Bitcoin Maximalist, yet I still really wanted to learn about Amaury Séchet, lead developer of Bitcoin Cash. I like that many of Amaury's opinions seem fairly independent, rather than sticking to a party line. In this long-form interview, we talk about Amaury's initial interest in Bitcoin, why he started Bitcoin ABC, the software behind Bitcoin Cash, and what he saw as three critical mistakes he believed would prevent a big block fork from becoming the majority chain at launch. So BCH haters, put down the pitchforks for a second and give this a listen to better understand the French Bitcoiner known as Deadalnix.

For just the price of a cup of coffee or two (at Starbucks), you can own the world famous Bitcoin Keychain, the growingly popular Litecoin Keychain, or even your own Bitcoin Fork - Pen.
