- Collection of Writeups regarding Bitcoin XT vs Core
- There is a lot to read. If you pride yourself on being knowledgeable about this topic and care about the future of bitcoin, you will read all of it. This discussion has been framed around wither or not to increase the blocksize, with XT being in favor of bigger blocks and Core being against any changes. Nothing could be further from the truth. My hope is that by the end of this document you will be well educated on what the debate really is, what support of XT really means, and why so many people are outraged and view this as an "attempted takeover".
