Bitcoin’s Scaling Debate is Devolving Into an All-Out Twitter War

The bitcoin world has been in something of a furore over an attack that, on Tuesday, took down most of the nodes running Bitcoin Unlimited – a controversial alternative version of the cryptocurrency's code.

Though the exact details of the attack aren't clear, here's what we know: After a couple of bitcoin users posted the link to details of a bug exploit that could allow anyone to remotely crash Bitcoin Unlimited nodes, an unknown attacker used the method to take down over two-thirds of the devices.

A 'hot fix' was released later that day, and by Wednesday, most nodes had popped back up.

The news comes a just couple of days after Bitmain's AntPool announced that it would switch its mining pool to the alternative bitcoin software, bringing miner support one step closer to the 75% hashing power threshold needed to activate Bitcoin Unlimited's rules.

Unsurprisingly, the event made a strong impression on the community, and both supporters and critics alike have been vocal in expressing their reactions to the event.

All this antpool and BU thing is destroying bitcoin from the inside out and this can be seen from the price diminishing and the alt coins such as dash are benefiting from it.
Why don't the bitcoin people see this is the reason why bitcoin will never be the currency we all want it to evolve into for all to use freely. Undecided

This bug should never been in production of bitcoin.
If BU splits i know what chain to trust.  (Core)
Its about code... But BU knows this so i think they will give up.
And vanish.. BU has way to manny bug 2!in 2 years thats not acceptable for a crypto coin.
