The Bitcoin Money Pre-Consensus Debate Continues
A few days ago news.Bitcoin.com reported on the debate between Bitcoin Cash (BCH) developers and community members concerning an idea called ‘pre-consensus.’ Some developers believe pre-consensus could help with bock time speeds, zero-confirmation transactions, and consensus in general.
While other miners, like Coingeek’s Calvin Ayre, have issues with the recent ideas that involve what they call “risky protocol changes.”
Bitcoin Cash and the Pre-Consensus Idea
Not long ago Bitcoin ABC client’s lead developer, Amaury Séchet, proposed the idea of pre-consensus to the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community.
The idea Séchet and other developers believe could make block times faster, help produce a more sound zero-confirmation system, and help with other consensus protocol changes.
“Coingeek believes in Bitcoin BCH and further believes it should fully restore the original Bitcoin protocol — It was unnecessary changes to BTC’s base protocol that forced the fork to Bitcoin Cash BCH, the only true Bitcoin,” Ayre states on July 23.
News.Bitcoin.com previously mentioned that Bitcoin Unlimited’s chief scientist, Peter Rizun, likes pre-consensus but there are a bunch of others.
