27 December 2017   3512

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.

Lightning Labs, a leading developer of solutions for the Lightning Network, announced the launch of its desktop wallet in the main Bitcoin network. An application that was previously tested in a test network is available in the alpha version.

The application, which is based on the lightweight Neutrino client, is available for the operating systems macOS, Windows and Linux, however, as the developers emphasize, is still oriented primarily to the test environment. At the same time, more advanced users can also experiment with the wallet interface and get access to their funds.

The Neutrino client allows non-custodial Lightning wallets to verify Bitcoin transactions without the need to synchronize with the full version of the blockchain.

The new release includes such a function as displaying a single balance, which will allow users to see the cumulative number of coins both in the network base and in the payment channels by percentage.
