ITN is not a fork. And even less a contentious fork. On the other hand, what the community or the market does with the coins exceeds Cardano. It strikes me that it is only now that they are concerned about the tADA currency when it has been in existence since December, and I have personally seen buy-sell transactions with it. The currency already exists. And if you want, an exchange, a person, or whoever, can sell tADA. As long as there is one who wants to sell and another who wants to buy, that cannot be helped. The value is related to other aspects. The value is related to the community, to the team, to the infrastructure, to the purpose, etc., rather than its existence itself.
As crypto investor you must understand that the value of cryptomoney depends largely on science and technology (adoption and marketing is for another chapter). The first is more silent but very important. The second is more visible but complex. And within its requirements to be successful, the technology needs to be tested, and tested before it is launched. And because it is a decentralized network, testing requires a decentralized testing network. But it is only a test network. The value is in stability, capacity, security, reliability. You’ll only get that from the mainnet. If one day most people decide to implement a new snapshot, the tADA coins go to waste. As it is a test network, this type of manipulation is taken as feasible, decided in a decentralized way, but that the fact of the existence of the currency does not imply any kind of security.
A decentralized network cannot be removed easily. A decentralized network cannot be killed if the nodes that make it up decide to continue operating it. But if we could, why would we do it? ITN has proven to be a successful test network. Why not use it for new functionality tests, new protocols, new related devs, I+D, etc., before they are launched on the mainnet?
