Bitcoin : Anyone else notice the subtext of patching the HUGE vulnerability – only mining nodes matter to consensus!
I haven’t had time to research this fully, but it appears that Core disclosed the inflation bug after the majority of **mining nodes** were patched. At the time of writing this, [https://coin.dance/nodes](https://coin.dance/nodes) ([screenshotted](https://ibb.co/gLBYBe)) reports that 75% of nodes are NOT patched. Think of all of those non-mining full nodes out there with a massive show-stopper bug, and they don’t worry about this?
It’s a tacit admission that **non-mining nodes don’t determine block validity or consensus**. They just follow along with the miners’ decisions.
