If 2 healthy bitcoin forks are created, it will be increasingly difficult to know what to refer to as the real “Bitcoin”. We may scrap the concept of a real Bitcoin and simply refer to all currencies as “Bitcoins”.
To some degree, you likely already refer to all cryptocurrencies as “Bitcoins”. When I’m talking to someone new, I don’t use “alt” or “crypto” or something that raises questions and that they’ve never heard of. I tell people I’m into “Bitcoin” or “Bitcoin stuff” or “Things like Bitcoin”- even though I’m actually into many coins including Bitcoin.
I think it could be a natural progression that if there are 2 bitcoins, we’ll drop the idea that a certain blockchain needs to be “Bitcoin”.
“Bitcoin” is the best word anyways. Its simple, rolls of the tongue. It perfectly states that its a currency on computers. Lets go with it- industry wide.
Yes I have Bitcoins. Some of my Bitcoins are Ethereum based, some work on Doge, some are within the Feathercoin network. I also have some of the original Bitcoins like BCC, BTC and BTCC. I have a lot of different types of Bitcoins!
