bitcoin-dev list etiquette | Alex Morcos | Aug 19 2015

Alex Morcos on Aug 19 2015:
This is a message that I wrote and had hoped that all the core devs would
sign on to, but I failed to finish organizing it. So I'll just say it from
myself.
There has been a valuable discussion over the last several months regarding
a hard fork with respect to block size. However the sheer volume of email
and proportion of discussion that is more philosophical than technical has
rendered this list almost unusable for its primary purpose of technical
discussion related to Bitcoin development. Many of us share the blame for
letting the discourse run off topic to such a degree, and we hope that an
appeal for individual self restraint will allow this list to return to a
higher signal-to-noise ratio.
-Please consider the degree to which any email you send is related to
technical development before sending it.
-Please consider how many emails you are sending to this list regarding the
same topic.
This list is not appropriate for an endless back and forth debate on the
philosophical underpinnings of Bitcoin. Although such a debate may be
worthwhile it should be taken to another forum for discussion. Every email
you send is received by hundreds of developers who value their time as much
as you value yours. If your intended audience isn't really the majority of
them, perhaps private communication would be more appropriate.
Thanks,
Alex

Debunking: "Blockstream is 3 or 4 developers out of hundreds of developers at Core" - Tone Vays

He says this at 25:50 in this interview whilst making the argument that Bitcoin Core development is decentralised.
Let's check a few things.
First port of call is Github.
https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/graphs/contributors
There are 32 contributors with over 30 commits. Out of these 32, 8 have made no contributions at all in 2017 so lets drop that number to 24.
There are 10 contributors with over 200 commits.
  1. Wladimir J. van der Laan he is funded by MIT Media Labs Digital Currency initiative.
  2. Pieter Wuille, co-founder of Blockstream.
  3. Matt Corallo. https://blockstream.com/team/matt-corallo/ Matt also works for Chaincode Labs.
  4. Corey Fields, funded by MIT Media Labs Digital Currency initiative.
  5. Jonas Schnelli is cited as 'independent'. If anyone has more info on him, that would be nice.
  6. Marco Falke - Chaincode Labs
  7. Luke Dashjr - Blockstream
  8. John Newbery - Chaincode Labs
  9. Alex Morcos - Chaincode Labs founder
  10. Suhas Daftuar - Chaincode Labs founder (199 commits)
So just scratching the surface, this is far from hundreds of developers, and far from a decentralised team. 7 of the top 10 developers of Bitcoin Core work for Blockstream and Chaincode.
Now let's take a quick look at Chaincode. It was self-funded by its founders Alex Morcos and Suhas Daftuar who also started Hudson River Trading in 2002. Here's where it gets interesting. Alex Morcos also participated in funding MIT's Media Labs Digital Currency initiative, which is who funds Wladimir J. van der Laan and Corey Fields. Matt Corallo (Blockstream) is a team member of Chaincode. While everybody is focused on Blockstream, we have Alex Morcos funding 6 of the top 10 developers for sure. Only Jonas Schnelli is uncertain how he is funded.
Call me a tin foil hat wearing crazy man, but this does not look like a decentralised development team to me at all.
Edit: Thanks for all the tips and reddit gold. Honestly, I prefer tips to gold. I now have a year and a half of Reddit gold, and the tips I pay forward to other people, so more useful. But either way, it's appreciated :)
