Bitcoin Cash Hardfork Implemented

Hardfork of a hardfork... just don't get confused in this crazy world of cryptocurrency
16 November 2018   81

Today, on November 15, a hardfork was implemented in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network. The first block in the Bitcoin ABC blockchain has mined a pool of Bitcoin.com.

The last “common block” was # 556,766, mined by SVPool. on which the protocol update was activated.

Bitcoin SV got its first block. Now we can definitely talk about the division of Bitcoin Cash into two competing blockchains. Roger Ver, right before the hardfork, said that his pool had sent a significant amount of power to mining Bitcoin ABC.

Bitfinex exchange announced the transfer of BAB and BSV coins to the accounts of BCH holders.

Poloniex converted all BCH balances into assets BCHABC and BCHSV. At the same time, the BCH market became unavailable. Instead, the BCHABC / BTC, BCHSV / BTC, BCHABC / USDC and BCHSV / USDC trading pairs appeared. I / O of BCHABC and BCHSV is not yet available, but will open when the network stabilizes.
