Big Blocker

1. | definition

Someone who believes that the best and fastest way to solve the immediate bitcoin scaling issue is by increasing the block-size.

Most scaling solutions call for a block-size increase eventually, but this term is used to denote someone who wants the block size increases to happen sooner rather than later.

1.1 > Ex. | Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) forked from Bitcoin (BTC) largely due to a conflict over when - or even if - the block size should increase. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) decided to increase the blocksize from 1MB to 8MB, and later to 32MB blocks.

The blocksize increase - amongst other improvements - allow the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockchain to remain cheap, fast and reliable while further scaling solutions are researched and implemented.

1.2 > Ex. | Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV)

Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) forked from Bitcoin Cash (BCH) largely due to a conflict of how scaling should be approached. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) aims to ensure the blockchain stays cheap and usable while further scaling solutions are explored, while Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is focusing on increasing the block size as large as possible as soon as possible.
Both Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) supporters are often called Big Blockers
