The Problem with Bitcoin—What now?

The Great Bitcoin Fork – heartbleed or bleeding hearts?
A fork in software is more problematic as the rules should be deterministic for the first fork to resolve.

Against the threat of core team fork, the Bitcoin mitigation of ‘we voluntarily agree’ is too soft for a credible security project.

Surely they had the discipline to not deliberately risk a permanent fork and bring down the entire $4bn Bitcoin community?

Not having the fork means in essence better leadership – not have the core team decide to fork.
