I think this can actually explain a lot of past hard fork dynamics. Without an explicitly agreed process for agreement, people have to predict the implicit process that others are most likely to agree on and resort to. (1/7) https://social.that.world/@wei/106336302936496207
On one hand, it makes hard fork relatively stable in that you always know who'll continue to "be the original coin". On the other hand, every controversial hard fork becomes a mess because the implicit "agreement process" will always be doubted by everyone, including devs. (5/7)
