If the development team breaks down, this maybe the end of Bitcoin. Some people may criticise the core team but they have contributed significantly to the growth of the project. There is a reason why we have so many fork of BTC coins over, this is because the core is secure

not that fast, many supports bitcoin and they can manage to make the value of bitcoin stand still.

PoW is Technically an evolutionary Dead End, so he was right .  Wink

Current BTC Core members are pushing seqwit & LN, and refusing to increase the blocksize , we all be lucky if they would Quit.


 Cool
Yeah, I'm pretty sure we would be lucky to have you as a core dev instead.

LOL,

I may have to disagree with you on that.  For one, The bitcoin developer team isn't made of a single developer. Since Bitcoin is an open source Project.  It means developments been made by team of dedicated devs (Some of which are not part of the core team). Also, When Satoshi left, It didn't take bitcoin away, Instead new developers volunteered to contribute & support the project. Same would happen If the current team "Breaks down".

One of the biggest factors that keep Bitcoin alive is the development team behind it. What if this developer team breaks down? Are there any other people who can continue the project in technical terms?

as you may know bitcoin source is open and anybody with c++ and programming knowledge and also knowledge of bitcoin protocol can learn and develop it.
there may not be as many people who fully understand the bitcoin protocol but since there isn't only one person developing and also because there are others who have the knowledge it is never going to be a problem to pass the torch to other people.

that is why there are so many altcoins, anybody with little knowledge about these things can copy the code and make a new one.

Well that could be challenging and people will definitely panic and will sell off their Bitcoins which will cause it to devalue but with the love people have for the Bitcoin project and what they stand to loose when Bitcoin development stall I think will motivate more developers outside the core to take over.

bitcoin is open source, so anyone can fork or maintain it if the developers screw it or abandon it.

so basically the answer is the same as what would happen if any open source software team breaks down

but you need a talented and not biased dev not anyone can do it, being open source is good but you need to find the good programmers also, some of them hat worked on core weren't that good in the end, or they abandoned it because they had different idea

I think if the dev team has a leader and he knows that there is something happening to the team he will find solution beforehand like when a member is going out of the team to find another project then the leader would find some replacement to him that is fitting to be in the team not just newcomer who is not into the idea of the team.

Break down of the developers is impossible because bitcoin is in high valued coin, I mean high managing condition.
And many will supports behind those developers so it would not happen then.
Bitcoin is in good condition so as to developer.

Bitcoin, the virtual currency technology is striving despite an ever present war.Dispute arises about the maximum size of a block creating a difference of opinion between the two groups, chinese community and western developers. Current limit for maximum block size is 1 megabyte which makes transaction too slow allowing only 7 transactions per second which is very low for most of businesses who have integrated bitcoin technology.some devs propose a block size limit of 20 mega bytes and chinese community propose block size limit of only 8 mega bytes.Bitcoin current market cap is around $4 billion with millions of dollar investments waiting in line.The block chain is a completely secure and decentralized system, and the large user base along with a relatively lengthy history makes the blockchain technology superior. However, if the community falls apart over the block size limit debate, the entire network will be compromised.

This thing would not happen because bitcoin users support bitcoin itself so why break down will happen if there are many supporters behind the coin? Anyway, bitcoin is now in a long run to tell that it will go down.

If the bitcoins developers team break down, so it will become the ends of bitcoins
although i am doubt it will happen because many people whom make investment into bitcoins and
many people whom try make bitcoins become more easy to be used.
It is mean the bitcoins developers team will not breaks down and still many people whom cares to bitcoins.

No, on the contrary. It would be a new beginning, it is not hat core devs are irreplaceable individuals.
Core dev team consist mostly or contributors anyway, they came and they go, it is not team of close associates AFAIK.
Of course we would have short period of drama surrounding BTC in case of whole dev team would split. But I doubt it would be permanent chaos.

and this is why people should not be sheeple, idolising any particular people and treating them as kings. trying to get other devs to run away to only give power to a few devs.

because when they go, they are gone.

bitcoin needs to be diverse have multiple implementations and multiple open platforms.
not a centric one circle of 12 corporate paid devs and 90 interns hoping for a job if they show blind loyalty to the paid devs.

but multiple implementations and many teams all working in consensus. that way if one falls away there's still diversity and openness.

While this is true there should be a line drawn. A good example for this is how Roger Ver is trying to rally the big blockers and all the "sheeple" as you said to go with them and fight for their cause. Does Roger Ver really know the technical ins and outs of Bitcoin? Between him and Peter Todd who would you listen to?

yes it will  surely produce panic, because now people cannot afford to stop using bitcoin, and they will certainly motivate other developer to take the charge, but they cannot manage to stop gambling for ever. we can hope that in reality we will never face such kind of issues, which create panic to the people.

The developers is the most important to maintain bitcoin to enhance it. So if the bitcoin developers has breakdown also the bitcoin will affected. There are many developers can continue bitcoin development when they know the bitcoin because bitcoin is a free sofware and it takes time to develop it because it will need deep study about it. But because of the age of bitcoin I think it will not happen.

Personally i don't see any reason why bitcoin developers will break down because Bitcoin is stable and have a high value is a BS if they abandoned it now. They have a lot of time to do this before. But still they choose to hold on to btc

In my own opinion, if the teams break down which means someone else who is not part of the team to take over will be very difficult because for another developer to take over another project in which he is never part of means tearing down the project and start all over again and thats why when the developer is no where to be found before the projects gets to maturity stage, then its going down and no two ways about it.

If the development team breaks down, this maybe the end of Bitcoin. Some people may criticise the core team but they have contributed significantly to the growth of the project. There is a reason why we have so many fork of BTC coins over, this is because the core is secure

not that fast, many supports bitcoin and they can manage to make the value of bitcoin stand still.
In fact, the community is supported by many people, and that support grows every day. Among these people, there are individuals with many programming skills and deep knowledge about blockchain technologies... If necessary, such people would be willing to contribute to the development if some developers decided to leave the team.
