Greetings,

We come bearing unfortunate news, and it is much to our dismay to announce that Bithereum’s current chain will be shut down in the coming days. About a month, on around July 27th, the Bithereum chain was attacked via a hidden pool which essentially hijacked the chain, causing a split to happen. The original chain which is being run by the attackers is now on block 648,294, while the chain our node is running is on block 648,105. Our node and any other nodes on the latter chain cannot sync properly unless they are able to communicate with the node on 648,294, which seems to be private. …

Hello everyone,

We wanted to give a brief update on the current status of Bithereum and what can be expected as we move forward in 2020. Though we have been quiet for some time, we would like everyone to know that development work has been going on for this entire span and that Bithereum is still alive and kicking. Proof-of-Uptime v2.0 (https://medium.com/bithereum-network/bithereums-proof-of-uptime-v2-0-69da7c1ca17) has continued to go strong week-after-week with the last round of payouts being issued to around 150 nodes! …

Bithereum’s first iteration of Proof-of-Uptime (PoU) has been running for 4 months now and the number of nodes has grown week over week; last week there were 186 nodes!

Proof-of-Uptime will now be shifting into phase 2, as we introduce the Bithereum Node Tool. The node tool is REQUIRED for anyone who wishes to participate in PoU, since this is what will be used to check uptime and issue the weekly payouts. …

Many people are unable to participate in running a full node due to a lack of knowledge or lack of resources. Furthermore, the space needed to run a full node is more than often 200GB+ and the syncing process itself can take months, ultimately costing the user time, money, and sanity.

Today, we are excited to introduce the nimbleNODE (https://nimblenode.io): the most portable, affordable, and nimble way to run a full node from anywhere in the world. nimbleNODEs are lightweight, wi-fi and bluetooth-equipped devices that are the size of your favorite biscotti. …

Current Mainnet Status

Bithereum has made tremendous progress since the launch on January 5th. It has been a tough few weeks with the various issues we had, but as promised, we have worked tirelessly to get everything up and running. Thus far, we have already had as much as 33 full nodes running and rewards haven’t even begun yet. The network’s mining hash rate has also increased week-by-week, and more people continue to enter the fray. At peak hashrate, Bithereum was the second highest out of all other Equihash <144,5> coins, within the first day of its launch alone. …

The Definitive Guide to Redeem Bithereum for BTC and ETH holders

Welcome everyone to the definitive guide to redeem Bithereum for both BTC and ETH holders. Since Bithereum is a fork of Bitcoin, all BTC holders are eligible to redeem Bithereum at a 1:1 ratio. Also, since Bithereum is utilizing Ethereum’s Casper protocol for our Proof of Stake model, we’ve created a mechanism that enables all ETH holders to redeem Bithereum as well.

This was done via a hard spoon of the Ethereum chain which we go more in detail about here: https://medium.com/bithereum-network/bithereums-hard-spoon-snapshot-is-complete-c1814024ea9a.


Bithereum will be forking from BTC block 555,555, or around December 28th

We are excited to announce that Bithereum’s hard spoon snapshot of the Ethereum blockchain was successfully completed on December 12th, at exactly 19:00 UTC or Ethereum block number 6,874,581. This means that the existing account balances of the ETH holders were recorded at that exact moment, in order to then reward them in Bithereum upon launch at the ETH to BTC ratio.

The ETH to BTC ratio at the time was 38 ETH to 1 BTC (ETH at $91.60 and BTC at $3,506.62), so ETH holders will be able to redeem BTH at the same ratio of 38 ETH to 1 BTH. The total amount of BTH that will be set aside for ETH holder redemption is 2,730,450 BTH. BTC holders will be able to redeem BTH at a ratio of 1 BTC to 1 BTH upon launch as well, as it is a fork of Bitcoin. By taking this hard spoon snapshot, the total max supply of BTH has also been finalized and will be 30,886,000 BTH. …
