The trading platform Bitasia is one among the first exchanges to provide zero-confirmation transactions. Due to this fact the traders can use the platform as speedily as possible.
Bitasia is a platform which allows the traders to exchange a diversity of cryptocurrencies (ETH, ETC, LTC, BTC, BCH ect.). This week the exchange claimed that after some consideration the trading platform would hold 0-confirmation transactions for the Bitcoin Cash retail chain. For merchants and other businesses such kind of transactions suggests the possibility to accept a digital currency before the first web confirmation. Nevertheless, according to the common position within the BTC community, at least one confirmation is necessary in order to preclude double spends.
Lately the developers Gavin Andresen and Tom Harding made specific patches to prevent forgeries from happening while 0-confirmation transactions are held. But then they have removed those patches from the codebase of the core. Today the BCH programmers and the community in the whole believe that zero-confirmation transactions are safe and have begun testing 0-confirms during the past few weeks. The BCH supporters were excited to find out that Bitasia had been going to keep zero-confirmations.
Doublespend.cash, a new website, has recently posted a list of all the double spends` attempts against zero-confirmation BCH transactions. Those who support Bitcoin Cash are rather sceptical of the website`s data because the most part of the transactions have a cost set lower than the network relay minimum requirement. That can be explained by the fact that transactions under 1 satoshi per byte are usually never promoted among the BCH clients. Due to this, many BCH upholders regard the Doublespend.cash website as an effort to spread FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt).
