Bitcoin Core Team


#1

Hey,

maybe somebody can clarify this for me, but when I googled the Bitcoin core team I found that there are only 3 Members with merging rights from commits. I was astonished to see this as this would mean that these people have the sole power over Bitcoin? How is the decision progress done what is merged and how did those people get the Authority to merge commits? A Video about this would be nice :slight_smile:

cheers
