This catch22 should be obvious at this point. If you are competent enough to merge code into a critical app, you don't want to spend all your time doing so, and have many other opportunities. A similar analysis explains why many BTC devs moved to lightning (where their changes had some hope of being deployed). And it'll be an issue for BSV if they really do stop future hard fork changes.
BSV's strategy is to move development off protocol. There will still be developement, but at the miners and service provider levels. Curious to see how this will turn out. I have a hunch: this might turn into a patent war.
This post might as well have been from 2014 when LTC languished into a $4 stablecoin with a barren subreddit and basically zero development that didn't come from Core's Git.
The only reason it is now valuated as highly as it is today is because Charlie Lee dusted off its corpse after somehow talking Coinbase into listing it, where he then quit and went on a total Twitter shill rampage centered around SegWit hype which turned out to be a colossal nothing just like it was for BTC, as well as "silver to Bitcoin's gold" narrative to paint LTC as the "one you spend" . Only thing that keeps it up now after that grotesque pump and dump charade so Charlie and a few others could get rich is Tether washing just like its worthless big brother.

And the reason he gave for selling was to “avoid conflict of interest” ..
What a joke, he saw no problem with conflict of interest pushing LTC to coinbase..
I still can't believe anyone defends Charlie Lee, he ran an obvious pump and dump campaign where he heroically unloaded at peak FOMO and then tried to claim it as "to not have a conflict of interest" with the project that is pretty clearly functionally dead.
Nothing but lies from Blockstream and amoral fanboy sycophants like Charlie that rode those coat tails to riches

Funny I used to own a bit of LTC..
I finally sold after all the trollish tweet shit post.. seriously it felt like this guy was a 12 years.
This project is just wierd.. Thanks god we fork and we didn’t have to rely on LTC to have onchain capacity...

I agree, I agree, etc. But I don't see an issue with what he did.
He invented something (through creating a cheap Chinese knock-off), made a ton of money off of it, and sold at the top. And it was pretty obvious that a) he owned a lot, b) he had his own self-interest at heart (don't we all?).
If you held throughout that, then it was at your own risk.
Oh so guilding trolls is a thing now...suppose it makes you easier to spot...
Edit - OK so now I see how this works I now have 100 of these things to give away to my troll friends giving their clueless propaganda more visibility than it would otherwise get
Glad you only hang out with us u/hernzzzz
For anyone else reading this, give this profile a gander. It’s hilarious. They literally only spends time on reddit with us, and they troll.. day in and day out. That’s literally all he does.
Why not post stuff about Bitcoin in r/Bitcoin? Or post/comment in r/Bitcoin at all?!

Hernzzz is still working hard to pay off the debt he accrued from when he lost his ass being a failed [whaleclub trader](http://archive.vn/FmqgQ).
Key words: "It's recommended".
Good thing the mods of this sub are reasonable, and allow the community to decide the direction of conversations - unlike the heavy-handed, anti-freedom moderation policy of rBitcoin.
But you're a frequent poster here, you already knew this. Your concern about the rules is noted.
We're able to freely criticize cryptocurrency here, without being stigmatized or banned by mods who hate (or are paid to suppress) the truth. I think that facilitating free discussion deems a post like this on-topic, especially when taking the context of the content posted into account. These are conversations we are not allowed to have elsewhere, and relate back to the topic of Bitcoin Cash due to the ridiculous claims made by LTC and BTC supporters in regards to a lack of development on BCH. We can see that this obviously isn't the case, and that those pointing fingers have been reflecting their own insecurities onto their competition (a common trait of losers.)
Wonder what else those individuals have been lying about this entire time!
Personally I don’t mind Altcoin discussion some time to time.

>It thus keeps vying for 4th position with BCH, a community that is a bit puzzled as to how LTC can be worth so much when there have been almost no commits in some nine months.

Markets are irrational, or rather, humans are irrational and affect rational markets. No-one can possibly know for sure why something like a cryptocurrency is the price that it is right now or what it will be in the future.
Corrected that for you\*
>It thus keeps vying for 4th position with BCH, a coin that has already been 51% attacked, has minority hash of \~1% in SHA256 as well as a single entity spamming its entire blockchain to manipulate growth.
