thought on bitcoin fork

” if the deciders start to deviate from what participants want, then a fork becomes likely—and the forked version may acquire dominant market share and become the new de facto standard. It’s a standard story about how the possibility of exit disciplines the leaders of a group—except that forking is an especially strong form of exit in which the departing members get to keep using and improving the group’s main product, so the right to fork gives members more power than a simple right to exit would.”
