In total, 64% of the hash capacities were sent to the version of Bitcoin SV promoted by the “self-proclaimed Satoshi”  Craig Wright. In support of the traditional implementation of BCH called Bitcoin ABC, only 18% of the hashrate is currently sent.

The diagram below shows that the CoinGeek, SVPool, BMG Pool, okminer and mempool pools supporting Bitcoin SV have a very significant share in the total Bitcoin Cash hashrate (more than 70% in total).

Bitcoin SV 0.1.0, as representatives of nChain are convinced, is the realization of Satoshi Nakamoto’s “true vision”, which described Bitcoin as electronic money. Among the main technical characteristics of this client, an increase in the limit on the block size from 32MB to 128MB, as well as the implementation of four Satoshi opcodes: OP_MUL, OP_INVERT, OP_LSHIFT and OP_RSHIFT.

Note that Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV clients are incompatible. Consequently, on November 15, Bitcoin Cash is likely to split into two competing chains.

The Sparkpool mining pool decided to freeze the remuneration in the amount of 2,103,1485 for the extraction of block # 7,238,290. The management of the organization suggests that such a high commission could have been paid by someone in error and is considering the possibility of a refund, CoinDesk reports.

The head of the Sparkpool Xin Xu argues that users of the pool understand and agree with the decision, given the size of the amount involved.

Unfortunately, and fortunately, blockchain is so far not completely run by machines; human are still involved. So we have an opportunity to correct the problem. Integrity is our pool’s priority.

While some users suggested that a large commission was paid by mistake, others admitted that this could be a goodwill gesture from an anonymous donor to the community of the miner or even an attempt to launder money through the blockchain cryptocurrency.
