BTC.com wallet Announcement regarding the upcoming BCH Hard Fork

Dear Users:

The Bitcoin Cash blockchain is scheduled to undergo a hard fork at 20:00:00 on November 15, 2020 (UTC+8). This upgrade is expected to fork Bitcoin Cash out of two chains, BCHA (Bitcoin Cash ABC) and BCHN (Bitcoin Cash Node). BTC.com will respect the community consensus and support BCHN by default. A further announcement will be made by BTC.com as soon as possible if there is any change.

To prevent the loss of user’s assets during the hard fork, BCH deposit and withdrawal will be suspended from 12:00 (UTC+8) on November 15, 2020. If a new token is forked, BTC.com will follow up with a plan to export the token.

Please stay tuned to the official announcement of our website, or follow us on Twitter for service recovery time. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

Thanks for your support!

The BTC.com team

BTC.com wallet Announcement regarding the upcoming BCH Hard Fork was originally published in The BTC Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Hashing It Out #23: Avalanche – Emin Gün Sirer

Revolutionary! On this episode we have the brilliant Dr. Gün Sirer to whet our appetites for Avalanche, a new category of consensus protocol. He distinguishes Avalanche from Paxos/RAFT systems, blockchain, and traditional gossip networks to show how this new algorithm prevents double spends while allowing for high throughput (early tests supporting over 1200 tx/s). We learn about his new coin, Ava, which will test the limits of Avalanche’s public consensus on a global scale! The future is exciting!

TBP Flashback: Episode 7

Welcome to our flashback series where we give you access to archived shows on our feed that are so outdated you can’t find it on our feed anymore. With crypto being so unpredictable, we thought it would be fun for our new listeners to check out episodes of our older content. It’s like opening up a time capsule! Originally aired in July 2015, Episode 7 is about the human struggle for the separation of money and state, and about Bitcoin as the instrument by which it will happen. In addition, serial entrepreneur Erik Voorhees — an outspoken Bitcoin evangelist and CEO of Shapeshift.io, joins us on the show to talk about these topics, libertarian ideals, communal consensus, and more.

Hashing It Out #15: Ryan John King & Kristoffer Josefsson – FOAM

We discuss with Ryan and Kristoffer from FOAM about their protocol which verifies location in a blockchain. Their innovative protocol uses LoRa, blockchain consensus, and a triangulation mechanism called Proof of Location to verify an agents location at a certain point in time. Using their proposed Crypto Spatial Standard, entities can report their location to the blockchain which agent devices known as „anchors” verify for use in consensus applications. Truly amazing technology with massive implications!

Hashing It Out #9: Rick Dudley

The prodigious Rick Dudley talks with us about his work as a consensus subject matter expert. He lends us his experience and wisdom in consulting for the creation of Byzantine Fault Tolerant systems. We also delve into what it takes to build a completely decentralized public data storage system and why it’s such a difficult problem.

Hashing It Out #8: Mahnush Movahedi

We talk with Mahnush Movahedi of DFINITY to explain the fundamental innovation behind DFINITY’s consensus system. She explains how threshold relay works, how groups are determined in consensus, and how cryptographic deterministic randomness drive consensus as a fast and light-weight substitute for Proof of Work. We learn about how this impacts the architecture for state and network protocol design. This episode really shows why Mahnush, a PhD Yale postdoctoral computer scientist with a focus on multiparty computation, would choose DFINITY as the project to join to innovate on consensus protocols. https://dfinity.org/scholarships – DFINITY Scholarship Program https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.04548 – DFINITY Consensus System

TBP #203 – Gilbert Darrell

It’s smack-dab in the middle of Consensus 2018 and we give our thoughts. Snoop Dogg and Lambos. And I thought crypto was about building open protocols and stuff. Ah well. Our man Kenn Bosak exposes a scammer on the conference floor and gets kicked out! Also, we chat about Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey reaffirming his bullish stance on Bitcoin and crypto as global payment. We tell him to put his money where his mouth is. In addition, for millions of people around the world, having what many of us consider a basic utility, i.e. good Internet and cell phone service, is unfortunately non-existent. Imagine your life without decent telecom services. You can’t talk to your friends and family. You can’t do simple things like browse the Internet, shop online, send emails or watch Netflix. And let’s not even imagine an emergency and not being able to reach out for help. Gilbert Darrell, Founder of Horizon Communications, has a global vision, and he shares it with us.

TBP Announcements: Arweave

Welcome to Announcements with Host No. 2, Demetrick Ferguson, a show that provides you details on current events, upcoming projects in the blockchain space, and token offering details. We are attempting to provide you with details and information from the people who are creating projects, and we are not giving advice. Please do proper due diligence when considering investments. Today we talk with Sam Williams of Arweave.org. A new data storage blockchain protocol based on a novel proof of access consensus mechanism that creates truly permanent data storage for the first time. Now data is finally permanent, low-cost, and truly censorship free. The blockweave is a new distributed ledger, its technological innovations elevating it beyond current blockchains, and positioning it to become the backbone of the $3 trillion data economy. The blockweave revolutionizes the traditional, useless, high-energy output of typical blockchains. The Arweave is based on a new consensus mechanism called ‘proof of access’, which instead of producing the negative externality of high energy consumption, produces a positive externality; that of low-cost, permanent on-chain storage for the very first time.
