Bitcoin is a free open source peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is
completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted
parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly
with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
The Bitcoin Unlimited (BU) project seeks to provide a voice to all
stakeholders in the Bitcoin ecosystem.
Every node operator or miner can currently choose their own blocksize limit
by modifying their client. Bitcoin Unlimited makes the process easier by
providing a configurable option for the accepted and generated blocksize via
a GUI menu. Bitcoin Unlimited further provides a user-configurable failsafe
setting allowing you to accept a block larger than your maximum accepted
blocksize if it reaches a certain number of blocks deep in the chain.
The Bitcoin Unlimited client is not a competitive block scaling proposal
like BIP-101, BIP-102, etc. Instead it tracks consensus. This means that it
tracks the blockchain that the hash power majority follows, irrespective of
blocksize, and signals its ability to accept larger blocks via protocol and
block versioning fields.
If you support an increase in the blocksize limit by any means - or just
support Bitcoin conflict resolution as originally envisioned by its founder -
consider running a Bitcoin Unlimited client.
