Not sure i fully agree...

In the middle of November, a critical event in the history of Bitcoin was supposed to happen as a number of large Bitcoin companies and miners were going to attempt to get everyone to move over to a new cryptocurrency network with different rules and call it Bitcoin. However, those behind the proposal realized the error in their ways and pulled their support just days before the hard fork attempt was supposed to activate.

For Blockstream CEO Adam Back and the vast majority of individuals involved in the Bitcoin protocol development process, this was the culmination of a years long debate. At a recent Bitcoin conference in Latvia, Back commented on the perceived notion that miners control the rules of the Bitcoin protocol and how it all came to ahead earlier this month with the attempt to move everyone over to a new cryptocurrency network with an increased block weight limit (effectively a limit on the number of transactions that can be processed by the Bitcoin network every ten minutes).
