I keep seeing various people in /r/btc keep saying "Why keep posting about how Blockstream took over BTC? We get it."

Because if people stop posting it, then people forget.

Agreed. A periodic history lesson repost is neccessary. Never forget why BTC was crippled.

Blockstream doesn't matter... BTC doesn't matter. It's important to make BCH better.

They do matter a lot. Blockstream still controls /r/Bitcoin and bitcointalk.org and the bitcoin repository. BTC is still the #1 by marketcap. Also, they are attacking BCH constantly.

Attacks might just be a response to /r/btc from their perspective - not everyone in BCH is a saint - Blockstream investors are mad; they literally lost millions of dollars

Also, I can't subscribe to the idea that Blockstream has investors (outside of 1-2 insignificantly small ones). These are enablers and BSCore was never intended to make money.

It's been 5 years now and Blockstream achieved only 1 thing, they hijacked and ruined BTC.

Any sane investor would have exited about 2 years ago.

They only matter if you want it so - bitcoin.com is pro Bitcoin Cash - @Bitcoin is pro Bitcoin Cash - Gavin Andresen is pro Bitcoin Cash

Gavin basically disappeared and outside of a couple of endorsements he did not stand behind BCH (which is a huge disappointment imo).

Forgetting about them is good. It's important to learn from past mistakes and move on - /r/btc sub looks desperate - like /r/bitcoin's jealous ex-girlfriend - I prefer /r/bitcoincash

I don't think that /r/btc looks desperate. Literally, it's the only crypto sub which is not being manipulated by mods and/or censored.

Often because someone vets a ban from r/Butcoin and learns what is going on for the first time.
