U.S based Crypto Exchange Poloniex Launches ‘Pre-Fork’ Trading for BCH

November 11, 2018

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) traded up 10.47% on American dollar in the last 24 hours period closing 14:00 on November 6th EST. However, one particular subject of contention is the manner in which Bitcoin Cash should accommodate smart contracts and BCH-based crypto tokens.

Craig Wright, a former ally of the ABC side when BCH was created, recently lashed out at Roger Ver, Jihan Wu, and others in light of the upcoming hard fork.

A hard fork is a change in protocol which would make transactions that were previously invalid, valid. "If however, this is not the case, then the hard fork could result in two separate coins". However, there will be no withdrawal facilities for the two coins before the hard fork. This effectively creates an entirely new cryptocurrency coin and holders of the original coin are entitled to both the new and the old coin.

The upcoming BCH hard fork has been mired with disputes within the Bitcoin Cash community.

Zcash (ZEC) is now trading at $128.07 against the USA dollar, a 6.55% change since yesterday.

Bitcoin Cash is a proof-of-work (PoW) coin that uses the SHA-256 hashing algorithm.

Bitcoin Cash is expected to conduct a hardfork upgrade on 15 November 2018.

Different developer groups-Bitcoin SV, Satoshi's Vision, BitcoinUnlimited and Bitcoin ABC...-do not agree on specific aspects of the protocol upgrade. Additionally, it's supported by Craig Wright, who maintains that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. This latest development is a setback for Bitcoin Cash, as it reflects the difficulties the crypto has had in establishing itself as a viable alternative to Bitcoin.

The debate between the two sides has been contentious, and both have notable supporters. The Bitcoin ABC proposal feature to enable atomic swaps uses a technical feature called DSV.

Data from Coin.Dance shows that 60.7% of the businesses it tracks have explicitly revealed they support the Bitcoin ABC roadmap, while a further 37% are ready for it. Here are the 12 things you should know about the Bitcoin Cash hard fork long before it happens.
