Bitcoin Core is programmed to determine which block chain contains valid transactions. The users of Bitcoin Core only accept transactions for that block chain, making it the Bitcoin block chain that everyone else wants to use
It is thesis users who keep Bitcoin decentralized. They individually run their own Bitcoin Core total knots, and each of those total knots separately goes after the precies same rules to determine which block chain is valid.
ThereвЂ™s no voting or other corruptible process involved: thereвЂ™s just individual software following identical rulesвЂ”вЂќmathвЂќвЂ”to evaluate identical blocks and coming to identical conclusions about which block chain is valid.
This collective agreement (called overeenstemming) permits people like you to only accept valid bitcoins, enforcing BitcoinвЂ™s rules against even the most powerful miners.
Ter addition to improving BitcoinвЂ™s decentralization, Bitcoin Core users get better security for their bitcoins, privacy features not available ter other wallets, a choice of user interfaces and several other powerful features.
