Bitcoin Cash launch in August last year entailed a whole wave of forks. Hard fork Bitcoin Clashic, held in November 2017, as expected, proved to be unviable, but the team of developers gave it a second chance. This is reported by Bitcoinist.

Bitcoin Clashic now bears the name of the most popular client of the original bitcoin Bitcoin Core (BTCC). Creators of BTCC, represented by the developers of Bitcoin Clashic and bitcoin enthusiasts, call the new crypto currency "fork of bitoin" and "true vision of Satoshi", repeating the favorite mantra of the Bitcoin Cash supporters.

Bitcoin Core (BTCC) is open source, peer-to-peer electronic cash. Bitcoin Core is a fork from Bitcoin $BTC, Bitcoin Core $BTCC was nourished through a labor of love, in preparation for this mission. Bitcoin Core ($BTCC) is an upgrade of Bitcoin Clashic. The true vision of Bitcoin Core is to compliment Bitcoin, and run along side it, by acting as an express lane for core values, speed and privacy.

Bitcoin Core is already traded at the Crypto Bridge and Bisq exchanges and costs about $ 10. According to the information on the site, the cryptocurrency will be included in the listing of information resources mcap. info and coinmarketwatch. com, has its own wallet and explorer. The Bitcoin Core code is available on the GitHub.

However, Bitcoin Core is not only the name of the bitcoin customer, but also the term that Bitcoin Cash supporters, including Roger Ver, often use to designate the original bitcoin to express doubts about its authenticity.

Lightning Labs attracted $ 10 million investment during the A-series financing round, and also introduced a beta version of its payment service for outlets that work with bitcoin.

If bitcoin is going to reach its potential as a viable global currency, it’s going to need to scale beyond the base layer. Similar to how Visa relieves banks from handling all fiat currency traffic, Lightning relieves the base bitcoin chain from handing all transactions, thus bring more speed and fee efficiency to the network.

With the help of the raised funds, the company intends to hire more developers and commercial specialists, so that it will be able to convey the applied solutions to users. In 2018, Lightning Labs unveiled a beta version of its LND scaling solution and received $ 2.5 million investment from several investors, including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Litecoin creator Charlie Lee.

Now a beta version of the new Lightning Loop service has been launched, with the help of which outlets can more effectively manage payment channels and maintain liquidity in them. Several customers have already become interested in this tool, including the developer of the Fold shopping application, which processed approximately 1,600 transactions through the Lightning Network during the holidays in 2019.

We’re growing fast and Lightning Labs’ loop service makes it simple to manage our lightning node’s liquidity, letting our team focus on building out great user experiences that bring lightning to the world.

According to Lightning Labs, this year the company will be developing tools for working with larger payment channels. We are talking about both individual channels, which individually can hold more than $ 1,500, and multidirectional ones, which break down payments into smaller parts.
