There has been a lot of discussions lately concerning the scaling debate and alternative Bitcoin clients within the ecosystem. Just recently, the Javascript protocol called Bcoin made headlines for its recent development, as well as a Bcoin block being mined on the Bitcoin mainnet. Now the founder of Purse has announced the development of a scaling attempt called “extension blocks.”

On April 3, Purse CEO and founder Andrew Lee proposed a new idea for scaling called extension blocks (EXT-B/ E-blocks). The E-blocks code has been submitted to Github with a proposal written by Christopher Jeffrey, Joseph Poon, Fedor Indutny, and Stephen Pair. The idea was first conceived by Johnson Lau in 2013 on Bitcointalk.org, when Lau realized the 1MB block size limit could be solved with an “auxiliary block” soft fork.

I have long thought that the solution would be an all of the above kind of option. I do believe we need SegWit to activate and would love for this idea to get quick and thorough development and testing. The moment is coming when Bitcoin will get a huge influx of new users and money. When that happens, we will either be ready and go to a new level, or not and never do so.
