No burn. The project has to fork XCP. Doing a new distribution from scratch screws over counterparty holders, who have believed in coutnerparty for years. It wipes out their equity, they will not support XCPC.
Bitcoin cash launched as an altcoin would have been nothing special at all. It wouldve been litecoin but without even the built up support that litecoin had. BCH was successful because it gave stake to everyone who was in bitcoin all along. Some of them who disagree with the philosophy sold. Others who believe in the philosophy bought.
XCPC needs to be the same. It has to be a fork from the current state of XCP that rewards all XCP holders and all asset holders with coins in XCPC.
If you launch from scratch, youre not counterparty, youre just an altcoin. XCP holders wotn support it. Current counterparty projects wont support it. No pepes, force of will, spell of genesis, augmentors, etc. You’ll be building again from the ground up, except that every XCP investor will have incentive to see you fail, and will scream at the world that the project is a scam.
The benefit of a fork which preserves everyone’s investment is that you instantly acquire a bunch of support, on launch, from those already invested in the initial project. You will have a community, plus projects already running on XCPC. And people will be able to ACTUALLY USE their assets of those projects for 1 cent fees due to bitcoin cash, instead of 20 dollar+ fees. Pepes will be traded again. People will be able to trade tokens representing game cards again. And all the other uses of XCP. (Personally I am in it for the game assets, but I welcome all applications).
If you do a fair fork, creating XCPC as a copy of the current xcp and xcp assets and award them to their current owners, as you should, then I and many others will fully and enthusiastically support this project.
If you try to screw over all current XCP holders, we will all fight you as hard as we can.
