Roger Ver Is Still Determined to Increase the Bitcoin Block Size Limit via a Hard Fork
Two attempts to increase Bitcoin’s block size limit via hard forks – Bitcoin XT and Bitcoin Classic – have failed to gain much support in terms of network hashrate , but early bitcoin advocate and angel investor Roger Ver is not giving up on the cause. Ver is currently testing a new mining pool at Bitcoin.com , and he’s put together a new development team to work on an alternative to Bitcoin Core , the reference implementation of the Bitcoin protocol.
Bitcoin Magazine recently reached out to Ver to get more details on his plan to increase the block size limit by way of a hard fork.
According to Ver, his plan for hard forking Bitcoin is still a work-in-progress. “I still have lots more research and thinking to do,” he told Bitcoin Magazine . “The first step is to actually have our pool up and running. I think you will see our first block mined on the network this coming week.”
