It is an interesting argument and it definitely seems to apply to food preparation standards as you…

I believe this is a large explanation of why SegWit is being blocked right now. It is costing some miners significant income (or has the potential to) by blocking covert ASICBOOST. In general, most soft forks should be designed so that the producer does not undergo any significant costs to enforce. There were communications with miners about SegWit and even some changes were made to not break compatibility, but miners did not disclose the ASICBOOST breakage, likely out of fear of lawsuits if it got out they were violating patents.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
