Bitcoin gets regular updates like the Taproot upgrade when majority of miners agree to it. what prevents them from pushing towards higher mining rewards upgrade?


the Taproot soft fork had approval of 90% of miners.

it seems too easy for miners to manipulate the bitcoin active developers into upgrades that benefits them like pushing the next halving to a later date, or something similar that could benefit them. it could be very subtle

how do we know there is no corruption in the bitcoin development team?
