I want to bring up the topic “Roger Ver” which is very controversial, but still every story has 2 sides and I appreciate that Ivan had Roger in his channel to explain why the community hates him so much.
In the interview he claims that people started to ban him as he was one of the biggest advocates for the Block size increase and lower fees. Roger mentions that the blocksize increase would only have happened as they needed Segwit to be pushed first.
And that once Segwit was approved, the Block size increase was left aside and the modifications in the Protocol never happened as they promised.
My question is: IS IT TRUE? Are they any Bitcoin core developers here that can confirm that the Blocksize increase was never a priority for the Bitcoin Protocol?
IS IT TRUE that Adam Back & Greg Maxwell from Blockstream are popping champagne to celebrate the increase in Transaction Fees??
IS IT TRUE that people are deleting Roger Ver’s posts from Bitcoin XTs discussion forums?
IS IT TRUE that Greg Maxwell and Luke Junior forged the keys to Bitcoin’s GitHub repository and massively attacked Gavin Andressen on Social Media?
Appreciate some wisdom from my fellow legends of the Bitcoin Core development team and those who followed this part of Bitcoin’s history more closely.
