Remember that bitcoin is decentralized and so any developer is welcome for bitcoin. If one team developer breaks down many will replace them since bitcoin is profitable many will climb up to the developers level. And as of now I have not heard of a developer team that breaks down and  others are piling up to join the group.

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?

i dont defend people i defend the direction bitcoin is heading and hoping it stays inline with bitcoins ethos. i dont care if peoples pseudonymous nicknames get hurt. as thats just some side drama they play the victim card in..

funny thing is people think because i detest gmaxwell and sipa, that somehow i must think gavin, hearn and ver are kings. wrong

what if i told you gavin (via Bloq) and hearn (via R3) are in the same pockets as blockstream devs, once you peal all the layers away.
and that drama is just a finger pointing exercise to distract the sheep.

even funnier part is that its only core that are trying to split the community, and trying reserve psychology to point cores own plans to sound like its what other teams are doing. fooling the sheep to follow the wolf by pointing at a blacksheep and saying "look sheep stay away from that black sheep, its really a wolf"

What you are describing is what I and others call a bilaterial hardfork-- where both sides reject the other.

I tried to convince the authors of BIP101 to make their proposal bilateral by requiring the sign bit be set in the version in their blocks (existing nodes require it to be unset). Sadly, the proposals authors were aggressively against this.

The ethereum hardfork was bilateral, probably the only thing they did right--


even gmaxwell admits ver, gavin and others were against splitting the network.. but gmaxwell loved the idea of splitting it

Probably nothing. The team can break down and still Bitcoin will most likely not be affected in any way. If anything happens, we won't even know because we have no idea who created it and if there are any developers or just the guy who had the idea and programmed itself (which would mean he's a genius).

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
I don't think so, there will be always good man/new comers to fill empty seat on the devs team.
Until now, I  believe that Mr. Satoshi still in devs team or watch over them.
Even gmaxwell love the idea to splitting, we will be fine.

Even though they break down there are many who have knowledge to develop it from core because now a days it is an easy job. Daily we can see many people are launching altcoin on the basi s of block chain technology only. Due to because there are many people who can develop it from scrap and regain it's position back.

Bitcoin developer team won't gets break down easily. When one developer gets out with a negative statement the next person comes to the position. Blockchain developers are in much demand worldwide. In China banks show interest on Blockchain for which recruitments for more than top 30 Blockchain developer search is going on. So soon or later someone will take it towards success without falling down.

If this has to happen, I think a lot of programmers would love to continue and take over the coding and probably improve it. Its open-source so I think a lot of programmers are currently contributing aside from the core/dev team. Merging and testing are another thing, but if is unlikely scenario would have happen, bitcoin will still continue to exist and who knows in the future.

Personally speaking does not matter when talking about open source software and bitcoin community. Hence, this means that nobody is irreplaceable given that the code of bitcoin is available to everyone. Take a look of permanent developers, because there are many occasional ones, here. https://bitcoincore.org/en/team/. Some of them if not all are members of the forum so you can ask to give you their opinion. Also, there is a similar thread asking the number of bitcoin and altcoin devs here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1303391.20. As far it concerns bitcoin's price I believe for most of the users its not a big deal the devs team so they will not start to sell in panic if they learn the team has broken down.

I don't think that an ''industry'' like btc, will not have ''back ups''. It's not,  for btc developers team break down so easily bcs we are talking about millions. Never anywhere will ever play with lots of money.

Thank you for the honest reply. I respect you more for it even though our views are different.

I started reading about Bitcoin Unlimited again to really understand it and to be honest the minute I saw that there will be 3 types of nodes, with different types of settings, I think Andrew Stone the lead programmer for BU is making a simple implementation more complex. Bitcoin Classic might be a better way. It is simple.

I read somewhere that Bitcoin is preparing for a hard fork, is this correct? If so what will the implications be and will some Bitcoiners be on a different chain? As BTC is so decentralized I do hope there will be enough developers to cope, especially with the transaction sizes.

Please read the whole thread and research on Bitcoin more. I am giving you the benefit of the doubt here because I do not want to be quick to accuse you of being an alt account or part of a large group of spammers. I will report you next time.

This makes me think you really do not know anything which makes you undeserving to make posts anywhere except in the newbie section.

Can We quickly learn the bitcoin protocol I'm wondering? Is it difficult to learn the codes and algorithms that make up the Bitcoin system?
If the bitcoin system is not easy to learn, the developer is hard to find.

although i personally have no idea about the codes and algorithms but to me i think will not be such a difficult job. they must have more developer and the will be working on it continuously therefore i think it is useless to even think about that. because bitcoin will continue for ever and there is nothing going to happen to bitcoin.
