Hi everyone. I'm new to bitcoin maximalism and I'm not a programmer so please be kind. My main question for now is whether the functionality of networks with more flexible scripting (such as ETH) will eventually be available on bitcoin through sidechains or some other form of interoperability. Bitcoin-based CryptoKitties is a frivolous but telling example. If this and everything else envisioned for other networks could be enabled on Bitcoin, this seems like a powerful case for maximalism.


@stevedunn73 with segwit versioning a much more expressive scripting language (potentially, but not advisable, even turing complete) can be introduced with a soft fork, but such a change could happen only a very extensive peer review, so not anytime soon
