I think in terms of Game Theory. Most of the time when people buy things, they want to see price appreciation. Unless they’re trying to knock out a competitor. Which is it: I can’t tell you – can anyone? Let’s say for a moment the strategy is to wipe out a coin: who are the intended beneficiaries. Is it Ethereum. Or some other coin. I literally have no clue. When there are market shocks like this 51%% attack there’s a rush to judgment: I’m taking a cautious view, keeping an open mind. Like with a corporate buyout there are always winners & losers; most deals fail, anyways. My hunch is not all forks are good or bad; and the jury is still out in my estimation on 51% attacks, too.
