The development of the Bitcoin protocol: Github, donations and developers
For the past month, bitcoinmagazine.nl has been focusing on the basics of Crypto Cash every day. From explanations about the blockchain, nodes, miners to articles about history, scalability and privacy. In this section, we look at the development of the protocol. How does it work? How will Bitcoin Core be improved?
The development of the Bitcoin protocol is different than in a typical ‚cryptoproject‘. There are often big bags of money behind it that fund the project. Whether it’s an ICO, a pre-mine or a venture capitalist investing in the company or foundation, there’s money on the shelf.
Bitcoin is decentralized, hasn’t had an office, CEO or ICO. It had the most neutral start imaginable. Satoshi, out of his own conviction, started something new from 0. And that has grown into a protocol worth almost $200 billion.
Because Bitcoin is decentralized, developments are slow. Or is that the wrong word and should you call it ‚conservative‘?

According to this indicator, the Bitcoin price is on the verge of rising
It’s time for another portion of hopium. Because according to two indicators, the Bitcoin (BTC) price is fine. What’s more: if history repeats itself, a sharp rise is imminent.
On 28 September, market researcher Glassnode shared an important indicator: Bitcoin’s difficulty ribbon compression has broken out into a ‚buy signal‘.
This indicator tells something about: the difficulty of the minus, but also whether miners have trouble being profitable or not.
The graph below shows the following:
- black line: the price of Bitcoin;
- orange line: the Difficulty Ribbon Compression;
- green areas: moments when the indicator is below 0.05.
The orange line is a compression of multiple averages. The lower this number, the closer these averages are to each other and the clearer the trend reversal is.
As can be seen in the graph, the indicator is above this 0.05. What does that say exactly?
