Or would it just create another hard fork that most people wouldn't use?
Also, how much power does Blockstream really have? What would it take for them to be able to increase the supply for example?
How does the voting mechanism work? Can every owner of a Bitcoin address vote or only people who run a node?

Source and link to Reddit topic: Forgive my ignorance, but if there are only 15000 active Bitcoin nodes and if it costs only $100 to run a node, what prevents a government or company that wants to see Bitcoin die from spending 1,5 millions dollars to buy 15001 nodes in order to have a voting majority and change the protocol?
