So I was reading some posts over at /btc and stumbled across what I think is a fairly good summary as to where this stalemate currently sits. The omitted copy was inflammatory and served no real purpose. has been deleted.


There are two separate but related problems. 1. What governance model is used to determine block-size limit (historically whatever consensus code Core implements) 2. What is the actual block-size limit (1mb)

Insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. If you want to take meaningful steps towards solving the stalemate, trying to reach a compromise on problem #2, while problem #1 persists is futile. It'll get you exactly nowhere. We tried that, it didn't work. You have to address problem #1. And bumping the blocksize does not address problem #1 in any way shape or form, it's not even a compromise, it's not even in the same universe as a compromise. We're way past worrying about a specific number. This isn't about blocksize the number anymore. This is about block-size the governing model. And if we don't take meaningful steps towards a functional block-size governing model, everything else literally doesn't matter at all.


I can’t see a reason why their assertions are wrong. This doesn’t appear to be about the size of blocks any more. Ignore the emotion and character attacks if you can.

If a bunch of kids can’t agree as to how a game with inherited rules should be played, the bunch who feel strongly enough about their view, simply get like-minded friends to play a different version of the same game. It’s arguably not the same game, call it what you will.

If there is too much invested in the original game or brand, this becomes an issue of relative bargaining power. Given that absent 95{88c91daedd271a990a10650c05d769cae2765e0603edf30ca95f18704e5748e8} there is no Segwit, and that miner consensus is required, I dont think anyone has such power.

This just means more stalemate, dragging the issue out longer, until things heat up again later this year.

I can’t help but wonder what Satoshi would offer up as suggestion. I am no btc expert, but this current issue does not appear to be a bitcoin problem, it is a governance issue. I think he’d suggest a planned hard-fork.

This won’t go away, just as the discussion as to how to deal with growing block sizes has been on the go for some time now. You cannot reasonably expect a bunch of people who have a shit ton to lose, and who certainly haven’t lost their vigor to fight for what they believe in, to just fade away.

I do hope rational minds floats to the top.
