Mike Hearn: Bitcoin Farewell Post Was No ‘Banker Conspiracy’
Former bitcoin core developer Mike Hearn has issued a follow-up post in response to his controversial farewell letter to the industry.
Bitcoin apostate Mike Hearn and his R3 colleague Richard Gendal Brown view the enterprise blockchain game as, if not quite zero-sum, something close.
R3 is now proposing that its DLT platform, known as Corda, could link together a wide range of businesses, not just financial ones, across the globe.
Hearn will become CEO of a new firm while remaining a technical adviser to R3.
Early bitcoin developer Mike Hearn offered new insights into his outlook on the project and its rival implementations in a Reddit AMA Wednesday.
CoinDesk contributor Bailey Reutzel argues the communication breakdown in bitcoin reveals the project is no longer making good on its original ideals.
