The Bitcoin ABC development team published its plans for the next 6-12 months for the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on November 28. Bitcoin ABC developers have been working and communicating with developers from different projects, including Bitcoin Unlimited, Bitprim, Nchain, Bitcrust, ElectrumX, Parity, and Bitcoin XT.

Although these are independent projects, each with their own development processes and priorities, we share a common vision for advancing bitcoin cash — While we can only speak for ourselves, plans for Bitcoin ABC align with this shared vision.

According to roadmap, major priority for Bitcoin Cash is to keep improving it as a great form of money. Bitcoin ABC developers want to make it more reliable, more scalable, with low fees and ready for rapid growth. It should be ready for global adoption by mainstream users, and provide a solid foundation that businesses can rely on.

Furthermore, Bitcoin ABC intends to enable enhanced features: to facilitate use-cases such as timestamping, representative tokens, and more complex transaction scripting, when these features do not detract from the primary money function.

Arizona to Protect Crypto Nodes Legally

According to the public records, proposed protections for cryptocurrency node operators are moving ahead in Arizona's legislature

On February 6 House Bill 2602 was filed by Representative Jeff Weninger (R.-17). It passed the Arizona House of Representatives on February 20 with 55 out of 60 votes. Now it will be sent to the State Senate.

The bill will prevent governments in the state from imposing restrictions on people who run nodes in their residences.

The bill does not specify whether it is restricted to cryptocurrency miners. However, the bill states that individuals using computing power to either validate or encrypt a transaction on a blockchain are protected.

This is just one out several bills making their way through the Arizona legislature. Another bill by Weninger would formally define the terms "coin", "blockchain," and "initial coin offering" within the state's legal framework.

Another bill recently passed by the Arizona Senate which would empower the state government to accept taxes in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
