  1. Found an interesting write-up/opinion on this topic; a lot of which, I agree with. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) totally fixes the quadratic scaling of sighash operations bug, by using the new transaction digest algorithm for signature verification in BIP143 (part of the SegWit upgrade). In my view, Bitcoin Cash therefore has most of the benefits of SegWit and has superior scalability properties to SegWit2x (B2X) Bitcoin Cash has 8MB blocks, allowing for a significant increase in transaction capacity, while mitigating the negative impact of higher block verification times. SegWit2x (B2X) has lowe

    The problem with having 3 is thay they likely won't all exist together for long, but I think the miners will stick with BTC at least until the others are thoroughly tested. Sent from my XT1572 using Tapatalk

    Segwit2x is planned for a specific block that they estimate will occur in November, since the blocks are released on a schedule (from what I understand).

It can be so easy for big mining groups to instill fear by temporarily switching to another coin for a bit, which gets then non-hodl people into a pani

    Hey guys, Decided to join the forum since cryptocurrency is currently my main reason for being relatively active on MyBB. Haven't put much thought into pursuing this before, but took the plunge last weekend and have spent some free time getting to grips with the ecosystem and understanding what coins are more in line with my thought process. So far I've sent 15k to Luno and have spent 10 of the 15, but will probably use the last 5k today since I plan on holding it for quite a while. I've been hesitant to buy more as quite a few articles have it stated as being overvalued, but ev
