Over the past few weeks, there is an increased interest in the Bitcoin unlimited development fork. As Bitcoin Core continues to work on its scalability solution, Bitcoin Unlimited secured funding for future development. The team has also released a brief roadmap of what will be in store over the coming months. Let’s see what this is all about, shall we?
Bitcoin Unlimited May Be The Solution
Although there are multiple forms of Bitcoin development going on right now, it is still too early to tell which scalability solution will work best. Most people tend to favor Bitcoin Core, as it has been the main brand of development for years now. But Bitcoin unlimited should not be discounted, as their new development roadmap makes some interesting propositions.
One of the more prominent ideas is to create economic incentives for people who run a Bitcoin node. So far, this has not been possible yet, as running a node will not yield any financial gain for the users. At the same time, more decentralisation is needed, and economic incentives are not exactly needed either.
