“No one has been forced to run the Bitcoin core code. Its just what people choose to do in the same way that they choose to go to the McDonalds or buy Nike shoes. It’s not that Nike is in charge of the market. It’s just people choose that. And in the markets, ultimately, consumers are the ones that have power. I think the same thing is true for Bitcoin.” – Aaron Van Wirdum
