Mike Hearn is a well-known figure within the bitcoin community, as he was the first developer to create the Bitcoin client for the library that uses Java and connects to the bitcoin network.

On April 5 the former bitcoin core developer came back to do an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) on the Reddit forum /r/btc. It’s been a while since Hearn has chatted with the bitcoin community.

Hearn explains that since the birth of the Bitcoin Cash Network he has been receiving many emails asking him to come back and help develop the native BCH blockchain.
In addition, Hearn spoke to Satoshi Nakamoto several times over email communications. The developer also contributed to Bitcoin’s core development team and left in January 2016 due to the debate over scale and rising network fees.

Mike Hearn has always been a fan of bigger blocks. The article is written in a way that makes it appear that he only now changed the concept that would have on the BTC. In fact, he has come a long time disagreeing with the directions of the BTC. He even sold all the BTCs he would have. He supported other unsuccessful forks.

“But despite knowing that Bitcoin could fail all along, the now inescapable conclusion that it has failed still saddens me greatly. The fundamentals are broken and whatever happens to the price in the short-term, the long-term trend should probably be downwards. I will no longer be taking part in Bitcoin development and have sold all my coins.”

After Andresen's resignation from the position of Bitcoin Core maintainer, he and Mike Hearn organized Bitcoin XT to address several controversial ideas lacking the consensus required to be implemented in Bitcoin Core.
