“That’s not Bitcoin, this is Bitcoin”

This was a fantastic explanation of the political/social motivations behind the 2X camp. Mind if I ask you a couple questions?

  1. Is there a technical issue to increasing the blocksize? The only one I’ve been able to find is that it’s like performing surgery on a benign tumor. Unnecessarily risky.
  2. When the 2x camp is planning to fork, what are their reasons for not mandating replay protection?
