Too Long; Didn't Read

The key to ruling Bitcoin is control of the Reference Client. Once you are in charge of that, you have de facto control over all of Bitcoin. You can add features, remove them, centralize it, or change its essential character completely. Once you control the reference client, you can steer Bitcoin’s destiny. This power in Bitcoin is maintained through control of access to the software “repository” stored on GitHub.
