I find it very refreshing to see that the community is actually involved so much into the decision making process, this is better than any "democracy" I have ever witnessed.
With that open mind attitude, welcoming freedom of speech/expression, BCH will make it sooner or later.
At one point the institutional investors of BTC will have acquired so much of the full grown Bitcoin fruits, that there is little incentive left for others to work on the BTC tree! Maybe that point is reached already, who knows...
While BCH is in its seedling stage and we are still planting the seeds, spreading them wide, so that we cover all the surface later on.
