I'm pretty sure this is also how it works for altcoins that claim to have various advanced features.
@harding If you really loved your dog you'd taste test the food.

@pete if I really loved my nonexistent dog, I'd feed him steak, which I'd be happy to taste test. 😃
@harding There's a reason satoshi coded first, and wrote the whitepaper second. Realism wins over idealism. He had to prove the idea could function.
