Bitcoin Cash figurehead Roger Ver, took to Twitter today to announce that the Bitcoin Cash community 'outperforms' everyone else in Reddit enthusiasm during this ongoing crypto winter.
The wonderful people of Chainbulletin took the time to investigate the cryptocurrency communities behind 12 different crypto coins. They focussed mainly on observing the most active reddit communities for the 12 crypto projects.
According to them, one positive side effect of a bear market is that it allowed them to filter out the communities from pump-and-dump groups 'posturing as collaborative environments.'
Even though they admit that there actually is no scientific approach to quantify overall community activity, they do believe that there are a few sources of raw data that can act as good indicators.
These are are the 4 criteria they used:
1. Subreddit activity
2. Activity on popular coin-specific online forums outside of reddit
3. Social Media platforms built on top of cryptocurrency projects
4. Coins as meetup.com topics
'Numbers don’t lie, and in terms of activity on reddit we can have clear winners and losers', they said.
During a period of one month they measured activity as the sum of posts and comments per subreddit, which gave them the twelve most popular cryptocurrencies.
These numbers show Bitcoin Cash has indeed claimed the #1 spot, and Roger Ver himself couldn't wait to retweet the favorable results.
New study shows that Bitcoin Cash "outperforms everyone else in Reddit enthusiasm during a bear market, with a community that’s clearly passionate and devoted to global adoption."https://t.co/qsKbIjBe2q pic.twitter.com/fnHhWZyjas— Roger Ver (@rogerkver) February 11, 2019
Crypto Twitter, however, seemed less impressed with the study.

Ha roger that is scraping the barrel.
You going to get trolled hard for that in future.
I can see it now, Bitcoin cash fails, but at least Roger’s got his ‘reddit enthusiasm’ numbers...
Wow. You are clutching so hard. It’s laughable. Give up champ.— Mett ⚡️ (@met_trumarkis) February 11, 2019
