Bitcoin God hardfork implemented

Another hardfork of Bitcoin launched with 2 days delay
27 December 2017   2972

Bitcoin God successfully "forked" from the original Bitcoin at block 501 225.

It is worth noting that initially Bitcoin God was planned to be "born" on 25th 2017. According to official website, Bitcoin God is a borderless non- profit peer-to-peer organization.

Bitcoin God is a completely self monitored decentralized community. The community will decide on the quantity and receivers of its tokens. The tokens mined each day will be used for charitable purposes, out of which, 17 million will be airdropped to the current holders of Bitcoins (close to the outstanding amount of BTC). The remaining 4 million will be airdropped for charitable donation. The process will be via users sharing their wallet address to our social network, and the community will vote to decide on the ratio and amount of airdrops. Bitcoin God will become the first charity platform built on a blockchain. Our goal is to fill the world with love and make the world a better place!

Developers state next advantages:

  • Smart contract
    • With smart contract technology, developers can issue assets and build applications on the blockchain, which makes GOD a token of value and utility
  • Large block size
    • Implemented to solve the notorious network congestion problem and to increase practical value, the Bitcoin God network will be the most efficient and smooth digital currency network
  • POS mining
    • POS makes professional mining machine unnecessary for users and reduces the power consumption. POS is more of true decentralization than POW mining
  • Lightning Network
    • Real-time and mass trading networks can be realized without trust issues of third parties
  • Zero- knowledge proof
    • Implemented to provide confidentiality of payment,while enabling the public blockchain to maintain a decentralized network

At official website there is a big list of exchages that "have expressed their support".

But we were able to find a proof only from HitBTC and YoBit. 

Our exchange is going to support both Bitcoin forks, [Bitcoin God and another Segwit2x] should they happen. We will be updating this post with further information on how we are going to proceed in each case, kindly check back on the news.

Yobit reported on Bitcoin God (ticker - GOD) balances charge. 

The road map of the project says that the main network will be launched roughly in the first quarter of 2018. The implementation of smart contracts and Zero-knowledge proof protocols is scheduled for the II and III quarters, respectively.

The US Federal Penitentiary and Marshals Service has announced an auction, during which 660 Bitcoins will be sold, previously confiscated by law enforcement agencies. The current market value of the coins put up for sale is about $ 4.3 million, CoinDesk reports.

Bitcoins offered for sale were seized during federal criminal, civil and administrative investigations.

The auction will be held on November 5, and to participate in it, you must register no later than October 31 and make a deposit of $ 200,000.

The trades will be divided into two parts and include the sale of six blocks of 100 BTC and one more block of 60 BTC. Auction participants will not be able to view other people's rates or change their own.

The Office clarified that part of the assets put up for auction includes Bitcoins, which were seized during the recent investigations into the cases of the traders Teresa Tetley and Thomas Mario Costanzo. Teresa Tetley was sentenced in July to a year in prison on charges of trading in cryptocurrency without the necessary license and laundering money obtained from drug trafficking.

The Marshals do not report which part of the bitcoins seized from Tetley and Costanzo is put up for auction, however, it was previously known that 40 BTC were withdrawn from the first, and 80 BTC from the second.

Two previous major auctions for the sale of confiscated bitcoins were held in the United States in January and March of this year. In the first case, 3813 BTC was sold, in the second - 2170 BTC.
