Bitcoin maxis vs. multichains: Two opposing visions of crypto’s future

Many Bitcoin maximalists are even hesitant to apply the term “crypto” to their preferred asset, as it brooks association with more centralized coins.

Jan3 CEO Samson Mow has said that comparing Bitcoin to crypto is like comparing “an aircraft to a paper airplane.” Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said, “It will be a multichain world.”
