Description

Vitalik Buterin, creator of Ethereum, illustrates a hypothetical situation of having a gun pointed to his head to force him to write a hard fork patch and why this would not work: "If someone puts a gun to my head and tells me to write a hardfork patch, I will definitely write it. If I publish a patch to delete a bunch of accounts, how many people here would download and install the update and switch to that chain? I see relatively few raised hands. This is called decentralization."
