Multicoiners are nothing more than hand-waving computer illiterates, who see something on a screen and then believe it. They are no better than the people who believe in fiat, and accept it as inevitable. You cant separate Bitcoin (what they call "crypto") from the software.
The internet is everywhere because one set of software rules that govern how machines talk to each other is the global standard. In order for a Multicoin world to come to pass, ALL alts need to be on one set of rules that all follow. Alts are by definition on _different_ rules.
What the Multicoiners are claiming is the equivalent of there being, in their own words, literally millions of different incompatible internets all coexisting, with their own browsers, dev teams ISPs, domains and everything the Internet has. Sorry. That is impossible.
It is clear now, that many early advocates for Bitcoin were only saying the correct things about it by chance. Their narratives did not adapt to the reality of the software; that is why they are now bcashers and multicoiners; they never understood Bitcoin in the first place.
It is not possible for you to be a Bitcoiner and a Multicoiner at the same time, and obviously you can't be for Bitcoin and for bcash at the same time. A true understanding of Bitcoin means you must exclude both of those because they are both totally irrational.
The argument that another, inferior coin like bcash will steal Bitcoin's momentum because Lightning is taking "too long" is also pure nonsense. The incumbent Bitcoin businesses are not Bitcoin itself, and are very small compared to the addressable market.
The probability of mass Lightning adoption is very close to 1. When it is fully launched, it will spread...like lightning...and will suddenly be everywhere, all at once. The infrastructure being built now it turn key; it won't take long to spread everywhere. Remember your Warez.
The switch from Gnutella to BitTorrent was fast. It took a very short amount of time for everyone to move to it, and it grew into an irrevocable monster. This happened without promotion or the anointing of "Gnutella OGs" under Chatham House Rules. Lightning will be similar.
Any company not planning for Layer 2 will be quickly dwarfed by the next generation of Bitcoin market entrants that are not ideologically wedded to making every transaction on-chain. And the spread of Lightning will be very fast, because people already understand Bitcoin.
