HitCoin is developed with the goal of leading companies and investors in global financial market to guide global crypto currency market, and it aims to link information, technology and finance as one, based on humanism. Hitcoin will hard fork into HitCoinSpecial ob February 9, 2018.

The reason for the hard fork is that on January 20, 2017, a fatal algorithmic vulnerability in HitCoin was discovered, and it needs a hard fork to upgrade the problem and performance of Hitcoin to secure the corresponding algorithm vulnerability.

There is a block chain network with a HitCoinSpecial [HTS] securing a majority node and a HitCoin [HTC] with a small number of nodes. A HitCoinSpecial [HTS] obtained the majority of the votes has dominated the main block chain. The HitCoin network will gradually disappear.
