Drama engulfed the Bitcoin industry over the weekend as longtime developer Mike Hearn announced his departure from the Bitcoin space. As Hearn announced he had divested from Bitcoin in December, Bitcoin Classic – a successor to Bitcoin-XT as a new client – appeared on the scene as a possible new implementation of the Bitcoin protocol.

Many in the Bitcoin industry celebrated the new solution, despite the reality that the coding is not done, and the main developer on the project once noted that he was an average C++ programmer. This hasn’t stopped industry leaders like Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong from championing the technology.
