The second annual Satoshi Roundtable, a group of blockchain technology developers, investors and early adopters, discussed important issues such as block chain capacity and the scalability of bitcoin this past weekend, but according to posted comments, they did not reach any conclusions during the invitation-only event. The roundtable was limited to 75 members.
Bruce Fenton, executive director of the Bitcoin Foundation, posted a notice about the roundtable on Reddit. The roundtable’s Facebook page says it is a select group of leaders in the blockchain technology industry who gather for a private weekend retreat. While Fenton is the executive director of the Bitcoin Foundation, there is no mention of the roundtable on the Bitcoin Foundation website.
Attendees tweeted that the forum was helpful in exchanging ideas about critical issues such as bitcoin forking, the size of the blocks in the blockchain, and the problems these issues present to bitcoin’s growth.
Several noted that while the exchange was helpful, there was not a lot of agreement on changing the bitcoin protocols.
