MultiChain as a Bitcoin fork

+1 vote

I have learned that MultiChain is a fork of Bitcoin Core.

But since that fork was done (in early 2015?), how do you then benefit from subsequent improvements to Bitcoin Core, e.g. bug fixes and new features? Do you "listen for changes" to Bitcoin Core and then manually carry them over into your own MultiChain fork, or...?

We selectively adopt new features where they are important, e.g. the optimized C library libsecp256k1. And before MultiChain 1.0 enters beta we will review all bug fixes that took place in the bitcoin code base, since the point where we forked off. And we'll continue to do both of these things going forwards.
