No, it sounds like you understand.

My apologies if this is part of the BIP and I overlooked it, but in the event of only a small minority hash following the BIP 148 chain, will there be some kind of emergency patch ready for the possibilities that:

  1. Not enough hash power is mining the BIP148 chain and blocks become near impossible to mine for 2016 blocks and the difficulty finally readjusts.
  2. non-BIP miners decide to point some of their hardware to intentionally mine empty blocks on the BIP148 chain.

But unless I’m wrong, such a patch would be a hardfork out of necessity, and what we need to avoid at all cost?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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