Bitcoin XT originated as a series bitcoin download patches on top of Bitcoin Core and is now a independently maintained software fork. The XT mission statement defines what the project believes is important: commitment to these principles are what differentiates us from Bitcoin Core.
We try to follow Satoshi’s original vision, as it is that vision which brought the Bitcoin community together. We will not adopt changes that make unconfirmed transactions riskier. Most users cannot or will not run a fully verifying node. Decision making is quick and clear. Decisions are made according to a leadership hierarchy.
We value professionalism in technical approach and communication. We run a moderated mailing list and do not tolerate troublemakers.

Miners and users who disagree with them have switched to Bitcoin XT or switched to other clients following the Bitcoin Cash consensus. There has been much community debate on this topic.
