A heart to heart with renowned Bitcoin Maximalists Tone Vays on whether Monero is digital cash or a useless project. I have a ton of respect for Tone Vays and all the great work he has done toward helping grow Bitcoin and communicating the real value proposition of cryptocurrency. But, given Tone's understanding of why the Bitcoin technology is so important for preserving liberty in the digital age, I don't understand why he is negative toward Monero -- a fairly launched, open source, distributed, digital cash project, that has made improvements upon Bitcoins privacy and fungibility shortcomings.
