CoinShares exec Meltem Demirors tries Twetch

Meltem Demirors, the chief strategy officer of CoinShares, an investment firm that manages $750M in assets, has joined Twetch.

 The talk on Twitter

On May 20, Meltem Demirors posted on Twitter saying that she was going to try out Twetch.

Like many curious individuals, Demirors decided she would give Twetch a try to see what all of the talk is about. However, because Demirors is known across a variety of blockchain and digital currency circles, her announcement was met with several negative responses.

Many people left negative comments on Demirors’s post, some even unfollowed and blocked her. A few people have trouble overlooking some Bitcoin SV (BSV) supporters and this childish behavior distracts them from reality unfortunately. This kind of thinking prevents them from seeing the unbounded technological capabilities of the original Bitcoin protocol—such as unlimited scaling and high transaction throughput on BSV.

“It’s interesting to see how emotional people are about these things,” Demirors told CoinGeek, alluding to how people are willing to martyr for one blockchain and one blockchain only.

Hands-on experience

But Demirors knows that the best way to understand the potential of a blockchain or a Bitcoin application is to give it a try. 

This is why she joined Twetch and is looking to see what it is all about. It seems that others understand the value in trying a blockchain out first hand as well. Demirors’s post was met with positive responses too—although they were far and few in between.

Business writer and editor Peter Diekmey commented that he sees the value in experimenting with BSV platforms. Diekmey acknowledged that if the Lightning Network continues to struggle, that it might cause BTC supporters to switch to BSV because it scales as well as acts as a store of value—while BTC only acts as a store of value.

Larry Cermak, director of research at The Block, wished Demirors good luck on her journey down the Twetch rabbit hole.

Demiror’s Twetch experience

“I legit just signed up three hours ago,” said Demirors, “I haven’t even spent any time on it! So, I look forward to telling u more when I have a chance to like, actually try it and form an opinion.”
