Did many of the bitcoin devs here migrate over from ethereum? Is this a common occurrence?
I am a 30 year developer but most of my career is at systems view. I have always believed a system must be conceived and designed to scale for Day 1. Scale is not something you go back to add later. As Ethereum never had this, I never liked it. Instead, I sat back and waited to find clarity. I am not knocking anybody. I understand younger developers have a different mindset. You give them a new language and say "Hey you can do this in a VM". They get excited and go play with it. If they realize that mistake now and come to BSV for scale, I'm happy to see this.

Thanks for the insight. So it sounds like your perspective is that developing on ETH is an act of naivety and short-sightedness. Is that right? Seeing ETH gas prices go up to ridiculous amounts this week, I'm surprised that so many developers support it in the hopes that version 2.0 will fix everything. I would like to understand this mindset, as there are clearly intelligent people in the space, but the choice seems bizarre to me. Perhaps it's just lack of awareness of a suitable alternative, or an unwillingness to associate with BSV's 'tarnished' reputation. I can imagine being a lone bitcoiner in a room of ETH devotees would quickly lead to outcasting. But it's not a world I know. Would appreciate further insight, or tagging of somebody who may have some @jackcliu@shadders@liam

yes I believe most the Eth developers (100,000?) fit that profile. career-builders, etc. Eth ecosystem does has investment capital so its rational that an eth developer might see a career path. As for the handful of founders and the money-raising business owners tied to Eth, I don't hold a kind view. I feel there is more likely to be some dishonesty for self-gain.

A lot of developers still build for fiat, aka non crypto fintech apps because it is a bigger market. bitcoin is clearly in the future going to be a bigger market, but for a lot of devs, they look for ecosystem maturity, size, investments TODAY, and so ethereum is that for them. plus there is a substantial primary market for token issuance, so thats a major factor. at the end of the day they can always migrate to bitcoin later is their thinking.

Thanks guys. Appreciate the insight. What you both say makes much sense. "they can always migrate to bitcoin later is their thinking" - this is something developers actually say?? So they are aware of the short-sightedness?
