Amaury Séchet on the Bitcoin Cash Split and IFP and How to Solve Development Funding in Crypto

Bitcoin ABC lead developer Amaury Séchet comes on the show to explain his side of the possible impending Bitcoin Cash split, as well as talk governance and development funding. We go over the particulars of the Infrastructure Funding Plan (IFP), why it's useful, and whether or not it's even needed for Bitcoin Cash. Then we go into a deep dive on different funding models, from pure centralization to pure chaos, and talk economic incentives, the underpinning of any successful system, and how they affect the various systems we can build.
