No Activation for SegWit or BU:The Rhett Creighton Interview
Cointelegraph spoke to Rhett Creighton, a Blockchain engineer and hacker who was with the Bitcoin Unlimited camp but left a few weeks ago due to the current situation.
Rhett Creighton: I don’t think it is fair to say BU is anti-Bitcoin.
The goal of BU is to create a new consensus mechanism for enabling protocol upgrades in Bitcoin.
The near-term goal of BU is to increase Bitcoin block sizes to 2 MB.
However, a rational miner may still want to fund BU simply to block SegWit if it was secretly using AsicBoost.
