The Bitcoin scaling issue has caused several rifts in the community, with some splitting the chain to create Bitcoin Cash with massive on-chain scaling planned, while Core diehards remain in favor of a 1mb block size and all extra capacity done off-chain, and fans of the Segwit2x compromise seek a bit of both.
