Bitcoin Industry Seeking to Bridge Scaling Divide at July Meeting
Members of the bitcoin industry, including major miners and developers, are set to meet in California this month, sources say.
Though details of the event are scarce, representatives from Blockstream, HaoBTC and F2Pool confirmed to CoinDesk they are planning to attend. In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Jihan Wu, the CEO of bitcoin hardware firm Bitmain (which also operates the AntPool mining pool), indicated that he would be attending the gathering.
While the event’s agenda is currently unknown, the Bloomberg interview suggested that the event will focus on the question of scaling, and that miners may seek a more proactive stance in the block size discussion.
