“There is no need for hard forks”

But there will be hard-forks nonethelessOne of the most salient aspects of the Tezos ledger is its ability to self-govern by accepting and deploying protocol upgrades, on chain, without hard-forking. Participants in a blockchain protocol typically follow a fixed set of rules. A hard-fork is a...

Hard-Fork Politics, part 1

Like an idol with feet of clay, the oft-touted mathematical immutability of blockchains stands on a weak foundation so long as hard forks remain a possibility. Indeed, the rules of these protocols only bind those who choose to follow them.This simple observation is what inspired the development...
