    I disagree that "Bitcoin" is one thing. You can start your own version of Bitcoin any time by doing a "git clone" of the current code from here.
  • Native Android support for Bitcoin Core (full node)

    The next release of Bitcoin Core (version 22.0, scheduled sometime during/after the summer) will include native Android support1.

    Bitcoin is open source. Theoretically it should be possible without knowing how to write any code. I wouldn't really know what to do, but there's probably guides on it.
  • Lowest fee rate
    Most node operators do not bother to change the default. This means that unless there is a successful campaign to persuade node operators to use a different value, or the Core developers accept https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/pull/13990, it's stuck at 0.00001000 BTC/vkB

  • How can Bitcoin be improved/changed?
    Different implementations(core, knots,btcd,bcoin,libbitcoin, ....) have different ways of coming to consensus. The most popular implementation called core https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin follows these guidelines https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

    Otherwise I'm not sure what a particular pointer to give you. All code updates and discussions are in public, if you follow the development for a little while, you'll start to notice how many debates, discussions and outright fights there are on the developer mailinglist and the Bitcoin Core pull requests page and other, similar places.

    Haha good one. I don’t want to come here and attack you because you probably are a wonderful human being, buuuut..... you’re so wrong. Go to the GitHub page and you’ll see all the names of core contributors. https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin
  • Oh look the only mining pool not signaling taproot is MARA Pool, if you own stock in $MARA please sell it, they are not keeping up with the times and are a overall piece of shit company.
