    Since the cancellation of 2x, I'm looking to get rid of all my BTC. So far the two currencies I'm liking the most is BCH and DASH.

    The one thing that bothers me about BCH is that the devs seem really keen on switching to bech32 addresses. I feel this sets a very bad precedent for the currency, where people can expect the devs to merge any shiny new "feature" that the bitcoin devs come up with. But thats just my opinion.

    One of the things I really like about dash is that you guys did not adopt segwit. I'm glad theres a dev team out there smart enough to know that segwit is a bad idea.

    Do the Dash developers see bech32 as something they might switch to at some point in the future?

    This wasn't even discussed yet, so "no" for now :)
