On January 10, the website BlockExplorer.com, which provides information about the new blocks of Bitcoin, has published an announcement stating that it will be supporting Bitcoin Cash over Bitcoin, which was described as currently having a negative momentum path in terms of utility. The service stated that it will go as far as to change the default BlockExplorer.com to show Bitcoin Cash over Bitcoin Legacy.
At such a time, we will refer to Bitcoin Cash as Bitcoin only, but will make some effort to not break API calls by changing URLs of legacy automated systems.
Chief Executive Officer, BlockExplorer
The chief executive officer of BlockExplorer stated that they have made a decision to support the only Bitcoin fork with a "postive utility momentum", which they think is Bitcoin Cash. The Bitcoin Cash block explorer will be introduced and they will continue to launch related services.
