Great article, also follow @beautyon_ who has done excellent commentary on this topic.
- “Political compromises have no place in bitcoin protocol development. I have my full faith in the consensus-driven scientific process that’s based on open communications, technical merit and peer review. A top-down imposed agreement based on closed-doors lobbying that overrides the technical community consensus process and the established FOSS practices would severely undermine the value proposition of bitcoin and its long-term viability”
- Allowing political compromises to shape bitcoin protocol development sets a dangerous precedent, constitutes a moral hazard and erodes the established FOSS practices and consensus-driven decision making.
