Description

NVK of Coinkite rejoins me to talk about attitudes on Bitcoin development and consensus changes. We discuss how “ossification” is commonly thrown around as a term, but maybe there is a better term. “Extreme conservatism”? We talk:



  • What is ossification? 



  • What about bug fixes? 



  • What changes would NVK be interested in? 



  • How many people will use Bitcoin? 



  • What the market is focused on



  • It’s not your chain
