Matt Corallo urged the bitcoin community to move away from the “us versus them” culture that is causing attacks on projects other than BTC.
There was a time when Bitcoin (BTC) was the only crypto project that was not a scam and protecting only BTC made sense. However, according to a Bitcoin Core employee, this is no longer the case, as he urged the community to abandon the “us versus them” culture.
In a tweet, Matt Corallo, who was involved in the development of Bitcoin Core, pointed out to the community that at the moment, BTC supporters do not explain why Bitcoin is unique and wonderful, but spend time attacking other projects.
According to Corallo, this situation is leading to what he calls a narrative war in which crypto projects face each other. Corallo went on to explain that bitcoiners coming into Ethereum for the upcoming merger, saying that Proof-of-Stake (PoS) will not work, will in turn encourage Ethereum supporters to lobby against Bitcoin regulators with the same environmental stance.
Finally, the developer urged bitcoiners to focus on talking about bitcoin and its positive aspects and to abandon the culture of attacking other non-bitcoin projects.
Despite calls for more respect and courtesy towards other projects, some bitcoiners remain indifferent. In response to the thread, Twitter user BitcoinCEOh said that “everything but bitcoin is a scam.” They said that some projects look legitimate but end up being scams.

In July, Bitcoin proponent Michael Saylor said in an interview that all PoS networks are securities and very risky. He argued that Ethereum, due to its inherent features, such as issuing B. through an initial coin offering, is a security. He noted that it is up to regulators to decide whether these projects should continue.
Meanwhile, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has been actively defending Ethereum from criticism. Buterin made arguments against Ethereum voting, calling one of them “outright lies” and stating that Ethereum does not vote on protocol parameters.
