But even if there was substantial dissent, Young seems right about one thing: miners don't have much choice.
And that's because ethereum developers have built in a so-called"difficulty bomb" – a piece of code that gradually slows down the rate that ethereum blocks are issued on its blockchain in order to convince users to move over to a new chain.
So, even if miners continue to mine the old version of ethereum, they'll be economically disincentivized to keep doing so.

Reflecting drug use patterns and criminal justice policies throughout the 1990s and 2000s, prisons hold a disproportionate number of society’s drug abusers. Approximately 50% of state prisoners meet the criteria for a diagnosis of drug abuse or dependence, but only 10% receive medically based drug treatment.
X-ray spectroscopy indicated that the aluminum substitution may be responsible for the durability of the seawater concrete: the ancient material contained a rare hydrothermal mineral, aluminum tobermorite, that is absent in modern concrete formulations. The researchers determined tobermorite has higher stiffness than modern concrete binders and may serve as a model for future concrete strength and durability.
