I follow on the side the news about bitcoin and other crypto-currency since a few years now. However, I'm not very a hardcore technical crypto user and I'm not a total noob neither (I already bought a small amount of BTC a year ago and spend them online).
I would really appreciate if someone can explain to me with easy to understand explanations the following things:
Why some miners are blocking solutions like SegWit or BIP148? I mean if they make their profits in Bitcoin, it should also be in their interests to fix the current technical bottleneck of the bitcoin network?
What is basically the difference between SegWit, BIP148 and Lightning (pro and cons in non technical terms)? I heard that they are all potential solutions to the scaling and speed of the transaction problems but I don't know much more about those solutions.
What is most likely to happen from here to resolve all this drama?
