Leading Bitcoin Cash (BCH) developer Amaury Séchet announced his departure from the development team of BCH node software Bitcoin Unlimited in a Medium post published on March 25.
In his post, Séchet criticizes Bitcoin Unlimited project management and saying that it led to inefficient development and avoidable vulnerabilities in the code. He further notes that when he tried to address those issues, he was met with resistance. Séchet cites one instance where he claims that feedback he provided on some code was ignored.
While Séchet admits that most software is built this way, he also notes that such practices are incompatible with cryptocurrency development. Per the post, the recent departure of Bitcoin Unlimited developer Antony Zegers has led him to reconsider his membership. He stated that Zegers “was one of the first to join, and certainly one of the most important members BU [Bitcoin Unlimited] has had.”
