Since Bitcoin is not regulated by a single authority, miners are put on the spot the process transactions and secure the blockchain. If they wanted to tweak or change the software, then it has to be the decision of the consensus. Because of this, members of the Bitcoin community feel that solving fundamental issues can sometimes take too long, particularly the issue of scalability. At this moment, the Bitcoin software is only able to process about 3 transactions per second, which is incredibly slow for how popular it is. As of now, the community is trying to figure out ways to speed up the number of transactions. Sometimes, when these changes are applied, they turn into a whole other cryptocurrency. Examples of this are Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold. Investors then sometimes decide that the new currency isn’t as valuable, resulting in the new currencies not having enough value as Bitcoin.
