New project called Bitcoin Classic to bring democracy to Bitcoin development

Mon Jan 11, 2016 12:15 am

New project by JToomim is being developed to bring back democracy to Bitcoin development and honor Satoshi's original vision.

This is a copy paste from the JToomim post where he explains it.

***

The central principles of Bitcoin Classic are twofold:

1. Make decisions democratically with user and miner input.

2. Keep true to Satoshi's vision of Bitcoin. Scale on-chain capacity to exceed demand as long as it's safe.

Point 1 will be implemented via technology like http://bitcoinclassic.consider.it.

Point 2 will be implemented via blocksize increases and the hard work needed to make them safe. We will be starting with a hard fork option that starts at 2 MB.

We will be basing our work primarily off of Core's master branch. Right now we've got a quick prototype https://github.com/bitcoinclassic/bitcoinclassic/pull/1 based on BitPay's 0.11.2-big-blocks version, but we've only invested about 15% of our hours into that branch.

The hard fork will be based on Gavin's BIP101 code in order to include consensus detection and some limits on block verification cost (e.g. bytes hashed). Currently, we're using a 2 MB in 2016, 4 MB in 2018 approach, with linear interpolation, but we're open to more specific input from miners and users.

You think that there are many advantages in it, unlike Ethereum ?!

What is the end goal of this endeavour? I read the roadmap page but couldn't find anything concrete.

Are you planning on making a new coin? Or jumping on one of the forks if there is a BTC HF?

The goal is to provide multiple implementations for Bitcoin.

The network is very unhealthy with just one implementation. Bitcoin is not software, it is just expressed in software.

That doesn't really answer my question. I know as much as I did before.

What does "provide multiple implementations for Bitcoin" mean? Are you not planning on making a coin yourself? Is your goal to encourage others to make coins based on bitcoin, or promote current coins that are bitcoin derivatives?

Bitcoin is a protocol, not software. I can be expressed in software, though.

Having a good platform for companies to use Bitcoin will help it grow, and this is something I'm working on.

I don't know why you keep talking about other coins.

Because I still don't know what exactly it is you plan to do, and now you're talking down to me.

Thanks and best of luck. I suddenly find myself not interested in your project.

We don't need no centralisation. ImageImageImage
