  • BCH proponent Roger Ver has asked disgruntled BCH devs to sell their holdings and buy DASH.

  • BCH/USD starts to recover after two straight bearish days.

Many BCH devs have been requesting an Infrastructure Funding Plan (IFP) for the coin for a while now. Roger Ver, the co-founder of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and aka “Bitcoin Jesus,” has recently asked disgruntled developers to sell their BCH holdings and buy Dash (DASH) instead. He said: 

There is already a peer to peer electronic cash coin with IFP. It’s called DASH. I suggest IFP supporters sell their BCH for DASH, and start working on that chain.

An IFP is a plan that allows the infrastructure of any system to be funded by its users. Bitcoin’s original design eliminated any such centralized governance that’s in favor of volunteer infrastructure management. Following these footsteps, BCH also does not have any such plan. On the other hand, other decentralized cryptocurrencies such as DASH have IFPs. 

Ver’s recent statement clarifies that he has no intention of including an IFP plan in the BCH network anytime soon. His endorsement of DASH could motivate many users to switch to the asset soon. This will increase network usability, which is usually a bullish sign.
