There is no doubting that people have become quite tribal and patriotic to their selected cryptocurrencies. The original ‘civil war’ between Bitcoin and its fork Bitcoin Cash proved this. Many believed that BTC was no longer the real thing and jumped to a blockchain with bigger blocks, defendeding it vehemently.
This tribalism stems from what cryptocurrency can offer. It is a tool that has the potential to allow people to ‘move off the grid’ and become sustainable in an all together new economy that does not rely on banks, regulators, governments or other legacy institutions.
