Thats because the people behind Bitcoin Unlimited are not software developers; they come from outside of software culture, and have no experience of anything you have masterfully analysed and written here.
The people behind Bitcoin Unlimited don’t understand software. They talk about the, “Economic Code of Bitcoin”, because they think saying the word “code” lends technical authority to their arguments.
This is the real problem that Bitcoin is facing, and it will never go away, as long as “normies” keep trying to have an influence on matters of the deepest, most complex and dangerous software development.
Thank you for writing this; perfect analysis, super insightful, absolutely in context. WELL DONE.
