@Bulldozer0 Blockstream does have investors, though I’d bet that the Core devs are independently wealthy by this point.

@Bulldozer0 The Core devs at Blockstream founded the company; they are their own employers.

@Bulldozer0 Not that I’ve seen. They employ 2 of the top 10 most prolific Core devs, maybe 4 or 5 in total. Those devs have full autonomy.

@Bulldozer0 No one can control development of the protocol - there are many implementations. Blockstream doesn’t even control Core.

@Bulldozer0 Correct. Blockstream is mostly focused on building features outside of Bitcoin via sidechains and other protocols.

Lots of attention being focused on Bitcoin Unlimited hashrate signaling, but where’s industry support? What enterprises will follow a BU HF?

@Bulldozer0 The folks at Blockstream are well aware that they don’t control Bitcoin.

Some miners may have to learn the hard way that they don’t control Bitcoin and that’s OK.

@morcosa @gavinandresen Morality aside, wasn’t a similar attempt made against ETC? I’m unconvinced it could work long term.
