Bitcoin Core developer Johnathan Corgan has joined Jimmy Song in criticizing the seeming lack of Bitcoin focus at this week’s Consensus 2018 conference.
Corgan: Blockchain ‘Bashing’ Bitcoin
In a long series of tweets summarizing the event, which ends May 16, Corgan highlighted what he described as “cargo-cult engineering” taking preference among speakers.
“It’s like all the popular kids (Blockchain) are publicly bashing the geeks and nerds (Bitcoin) while privately trying to copy their homework,” he wrote Tuesday.
Educator Jimmy Song had been first to publicly pan some aspects of Consensus, saying during a panel with a JPMorgan executive that Bitcoin was “the real innovation here.”
