A question for NYA supporters : Software from Garzik is still not ready or it’s hidden from github ….why would you trust a fork like this?

BTC1 Github's page has stopped being active Fork is in 2 weeks and the community has not seen anything ready for Alpha yet

I can understand supporters of NYA agreement being still convinced a S2X is needed but how can you think a fork like this, meant with NO REPLAY protection, can be deployed safely without any vetting from hundreds or even thousands of people before? I am aware that probably NYA Signers recieved their "preview" of the code, but how can people in the bitcoin comunity be ok with closed Source developing and eventually going open source so late that vetting source code is impossible?

The core developers are creating countermeasures to ensure that core nodes continue to work on the peer to peer level. If you want to transact after the fork on the bitcoin blockchain run a bitcoin core node. If you…

A METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR SECURING COMPUTER SOFTWARE USING A DISTRIBUTED HASH TABLE AND A BLOCKCHAIN (patentscope.wipo.int)

A computer-implemented method (100) and system (1) for determining a metadata M for securing a controlled digital resource such as computer software using a distributed hash table (13) and a peer-to-peer distributed ledger (14). This is a blockchain such as the Bitcoin blockchain. The method includes determining (110) a data associated with the computer software and determining (120) a first hash value based on the computer software. A second hash value based on the data and the computer…
