We are now 4 days away from the split, it’s time for everyone to take the time to understand what will happen post fork.
The following picture is an attempt to represent the different technical aspects of the upcoming #BitcoinCash contentious fork.
It’s not a simple exercise but I believe this is a pretty complete representation of the different mechanisms involved during the fork.
It highlights that the ABC and SV forks are going to share a lot of transaction history and will grow a divergent history simultaneously.
This will be occuring continuously until a definitive split (adding proper replay…
Dear BitcoinCash community, I am sincerely tired of it … really tired to read more and more people threatening to send or freaking out to receive a split coin that will “taint” their clean coins.
I will try in this article to explain why you don’t risk anything at all not splitting your coins if you hold your wallet’s private key, and that all of this is just #FUD.
My general philosophy is to rely only on relevant technical analysis until it is proven wrong. So please take the time to read the following analysis thoroughly and try to identify…
Following my article yesterday, I asked myself why so many people reacted badly to it (some even smearing it), and why it is so difficult to come to a consensus (as usual) when we were trying to discuss about the potential issues related to the use of coin splitters.
I think it’s because my business (and so my standpoint) is data oriented, since we at eminent.ly use BCH transactions to transport metadata (proofs of referral, interest, deal etc.) while many others see BCH transactions as payments.
In fact, if you are concern about payments you don’t care if you are…
Following my comment on the coin splitting tool that has been released earlier this week, wahheboz asked me to explain why I think that splitting your coins might be a really bad idea during this contentious fork and transacting with it during the BitcoinCash #war even worse.
Here is what I posted originally:
While it seems to make sense in a one-user point of view (yourself) “now I am fine, my UTXO set is splitted”, this will cause violent side effects across services decreasing interoperability and facilitating double spending (same original UTXO duplicated on each chain).
One “good” side effect…
Today, we are launching Ramen 🍜 a tool that you can use to monitor the upcoming BitcoinCash forks November 15th and detects chain splits/deviation faster: https://ramen.chopsticks.cash.
The block colors on these heatmaps correspond to the ECMH signature of each block content and help distinguish equivalent blocks regarless CTOR or NTOR ordering.
If you were not hibernating in Antartica the past month, you surely know by now that the Bitcoin Cash community is divided among the updates to the consensus rules to activate starting November, 15th on BCH blockchain.
We are reading a lot of discussions about hash wars that are in my opinion completely irrelevant to the situation we will all have to face in a month and half.
This API allows Bitcoin Cash application developers to submit their raw signed transactions to all post-november-15-fork Bitcoin Cash chains (Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin NayBC etc.).
This tool allows application developers to continue operating their services during this crucial (and sad) period and to follow all chains.
In fact, no one knows how things will go during this contentious forking period, and which Bitcoin Cash forks are going to survive and to be supported by the community.
For all those who want to present Blockchain technologies to a mainstream audience, please DO NOT start with an introduction like:
Crypto-assets are digital assets recorded on a distributed ledger. They derive their name from the cryptographic security mechanisms used within public, permission-less distributed ledgers.
Why? Because you will have lost 99% of your audience right away…
Blockchain is not a simple topic to present in fact, because it’s highly technical, but please make an effort to explain it in a more simple way.
Better starting with something like:
Blockchain technologies (and not “ The Blockchain”, there are hundreds of…
In this new story, I want to show you how much it is simple today to build and deploy your own modern and scalable platform. In the following lines I will present an industrial-strength and future-proof technology stack that is based on both Wisdom Framework, OrientDB and Docker technologies.
This presentation will take the form of a pretty complete tutorial in order to install, build, develop and run an application on top of this flexible and scalable platform, on your own!
Loca is an incoming SaaS product dedicated to connect people that are involved in specific international business fields. So…
RemObjects opened in private beta their Silver language that provides a way to develop both iOS, Android and Windows Phone mobile applications by using Apple Swift language. Since the 18th March, this project has officially passed 1500 beta testers showing that Silver arouses keen interest among mobile developers community.
Last february, InfoQ released a nice interview of RemObjects about this new cross-platform solution, untitled:
“ Silver Brings Apple’s Swift Language to .NET and Android ”
You can read it here as an introduction of the following lines.
Silver is a free implementation of Apple Swift v1.2 specifications and compiles Swift…
