Bitcoin Q&A: Governance and social attack immunity

Bitcoin Q&A: Governance and social attack immunity

By domaing4 0 Comment February 12, 2019


Who are the maintainers of Bitcoin Core and what are their privileges? What is the difference between contributors, committers, and maintainers? How do we build Bitcoin's immune system against social attack? How do we achieve decentralized decision-making? Pay attention to the technology, not the people. Regulation in Bitcoin is done algorithmically, not politically. NOTE: At 2:21, I forgot the name of Samuel Dobson, the wallet maintainer, but his name has been included in the video subtitles. More about the Bitcoin Core project: Jameson Lopp: "Who Controls Bitcoin Core?" – These questions are from the Polish Bitcoin Congress (Polski Kongres Bitcoin), the Seattle 'Internet of Money' tour event, and the December monthly subscriber session, which took place on May 12th, November 10th, and December 15th 2018, respectively.
