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.

Nevertheless, the agency appealed to the community for more information. This is stated in the document published on the SEC website.

Institution of such proceedings is appropriate at this time in view of the legal and policy issues raised by the proposed rule change.

At the moment, the SEC received about 1,400 comments.

According to the document, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) has signed an agreement on the exchange of data on bitcoin transactions, trading and the state of the market with the cryptocurrency trading platform with Gemini.

The agency asked commentators to clarify the position of Gemini in the digital currency market and assess the likelihood of increased volatility at this site in connection with possible trades of bitcoin-ETF.

So, before September 30, the department had to decide on whether to approve, deny or initiate the proceedings. The SEC chose the latter, which is likely to delay the process until the next year.
