Bitcoin built a "truce" with governments due to its transparent nature, upcoming privacy upgrades might disrupt it.

It no secret that governments have let Bitcoin go to due its traceable nature. Governments will let coins live as long as it anonymity does not hide its tracing efforts. However, Bitcoiners don't want this to be the case forever. They want to return anomity and prevent so called blacklisting of bitcoin. Every bitcoin should be the same.
Is the Bitcoin community fully on aboard with this? Or shall a new chain split occr? This is the question. After years of research new bitcoin soft forks are coming making LN more usable for the masses. These upgrades help LN an already privacy based protocol even more private while also incentives LN development.
