aantonop: Bitcoin Q&A: What was SegWit2x? Featured
A review on some "deep history" of Bitcoin... that is, one year ago. What was SegWit2x? Why should block sizes be limited? What is the "real Bitcoin"? What are the interdependent consensus constituents, and how do consensus changes succeed or fail? These questions are from the MOOC 8.2 session and the (late) August monthly Patreon session, which took place on September 15th 2017 and September 1st 2018 respectively.
