Jeff Garzika’s 2MB Block Size Limit Proposal Hits a Roadblock
Bitcoin Core developer Jeff Garzik’s proposed compromise to double the block size limit to 2MB as a temporary solution is still far from reaching consensus.
Long-time critic of raising the block size limit, Peter Todd, remains critical of any raise for now, including a bump to 2MB.
He told CoinTelegraph:
“As it is the development team is working flat out to keep Bitcoin functioning with the current block size.
Most miners would be fine even with larger blocks.”
“[Like Gavin’s initial proposal,] Jeff’s latest proposal is also a proposal to raise the block size by changing the consensus rules.
Van der Laan, who has been critical of raising the block size limit before, told CoinTelegraph he has no fundamental problems with BIP 102:
“I think raising the block size limit from 1MB to 2MB can’t do much damage.
