F2Pool maintains that changing its code to allow bigger blocks through BIP 101 or Bitcoin XT is not an option.

F2Pool dismissed the idea of an exponential growth rate of the maximum block size for 20 years leading to 8-gigabyte blocks.

“We cannot predict what will happen years into the future, and we think a first step to 2 megabytes should be enough for now,” said F2Pool operator Wang Chun.

F2Pool is the world’s largest Bitcoin mining pool.
