List Of Forks [updated 4/3/2018]

Scam Advisory: I'm not involved in any projects listed below. I have no knowledge of the legitimacy of any of the projects listed below. In order to claim Bitcoin forks, you usually have to enter your Bitcoin private key into a new wallet or App. This is a very dangerous thing to do. Some of these "forks" listed below may be scams designed to steal your private key, and some 3rd party wallets claiming to support these forks may be scams designed to steal your private key, therefore it is advisable to move your Coins to a new wallet/address before attempting to claim any fork. If a scammer has your private key, they have full access to your Bitcoin wallet and can steal any Bitcoins left in that wallet, and any associated assets, such as Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, etc. This list is just for reference. Do your own due diligence, use at your own risk, and do not trust any claims made by these websites without verifying. BITCOIN FORKS do you own due diligence. I have a list of approx 40. I have researched all of them and find around 20% seem to have a serious attempt of a web page, secure site github support real team of developers. The rest seem to be a copy and past of Gold and Cash to various degrees. Wiki has sanitised their site for some reason, which provided a good first source. Be vary cautious as most will try to scam your private keys and extract any BTC, BTG BCH BTX etc... later on. Bytether: Cross fork Ethereum blockchain at block 478558, 1 August 2017.

Upcoming Bitcoin Forks In 2018 Heres What To Watch For

Upcoming Bitcoin Forks In 2018 Heres What To Watch For

Last updated on March 26th, 2018 at 10:57 am Back in August 2017, the first coin created from a Bitcoin fork came into existence: Bitcoin Cash . However, since then, two other coins have also been forked from Bitcoin: Bitcoin Gold (October 2017) and Bitcoin Diamond (November 2017). Most people are still wondering what these forks are, how they happen, and how one can profit from them. Heres my take on all of this. We discussed Bitcoin forks back when Bitcoin Cash was just coming out. If you want the full explanation, you can read the original post. If you want the quick and dirty explanation,keep on reading this post. A fork is basically an alteration of the current Bitcoin code (or protocol). It means someone is changing the rules. Imagine youre playing a game with thousands of people from all around the world and then someone says, Lets change the rules. Normally, for the game to work properly, everyone needs to agree on the rules being changed. If that happens, then the change is implemented and everything continues as normal. If there isnt a large consensusabout the change, two versions of the game will be created (one with the old rules and one with the new rules)in other words, there will be a fork in the game. The same can happen with Bitcoins code. Generally speaking, when a fork happens, youll have an original Bitcoin and a new Bitcoin. For example, Bitcoin Cash changed the block size from 1 MB to 8 MB so more transactions could be processed with each block. There were those who supported this change and switched to a new coin called Bitcoin Cash (or Bcash), and there were those who decided to stay with the original rules and keep using the original Bitcoin. Of course, this is a very simplified explanation of forksnot all forks are created equal. There are sof Continue reading >>

Zcash's Coming Hard Fork Could Pave The Way For More

Zcash's Coming Hard Fork Could Pave The Way For More

Zcash's Coming Hard Fork Could Pave the Way for More Mar 22, 2018 at 08:00 UTC|UpdatedMar 23, 2018 at 13:35 UTC Privacy-focused cryptocurrency zcash is gearing up for its first hard fork. And while that may call to mind bitter debates over development or excitement about free coins, actually zcash's first hard fork - dubbed " Overwinter " - isn't about either. Instead, the cryptocurrency's developer team is hoping to lay the groundwork for more dramatic upgrades in the future. While there are some features being added to zcash in the update, Zooko Wilcox, co-founder and CEO of Zerocoin Electric Coin Company, which develops the network, told CoinDesk, "The purpose of this is to get practice doing network upgrades." As such, the developer team has been carefully informing the zcash community about the process so "they know how to do this regularly from now on," he continued. Most of Zcash's developer energy is focused on perfecting Overwinter, which is slated for June, while also looking ahead to zcash's next hard fork upgrade, called Sapling. This subsequent hard fork will usher in a big change, speeding up transactions on the network while maintaining the same level of privacy the cryptocurrency already provides. Speaking to the names of the upgrades (zcash's software stage is currently called " Sprout "), Wilcox said he foresees a smooth transition. "If you have a sprout, after it has endured cold, it becomes tougher." And should zcash survive this winter, surely, according to its devs, the cryptocurrency will be stronger. While the thinking on forks has shifted some, hard forks have been seen as controversial since they are a kind of governance mechanism that forces users to move along with a technical change. Should the zcash community ride out this first transition Continue reading >>

List Of Upcoming Bitcoin Forks

List Of Upcoming Bitcoin Forks

Over the year of 2017, there have been several forks in the Bitcoin blockchain, resulting in the birth of several new cryptocurrencies Bitcoin Cash , Bitcoin Gold , Bitcoin Diamond being some of the more prominent examples. Every time there is a fork in the Bitcoin blockchain, pre-existing Bitcoin holders will usually receive a similar amount of the forked currency in their wallets. According to CryptoCurrency Facts , a hard fork is when a single cryptocurrency splits in two. It occurs when a cryptocurrencys existing code is altered, creating a new version of the coin which will co-exist with the old version. Meanwhile, a soft fork is essentially the same thing, but the idea is that only one blockchain and thus one coin will remain at the end of the fork as users adopt the update. Thus, both fork types create a split, but a hard fork will result in two coins, while a soft fork will create just one coin. To put this into perspective, Segwit was a soft fork, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, and Segwit2x are all hard forks. This fork creates a smart contract-based Bitcoin (like Ethereum) Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Forks And Livestock Law? Tax Day 2018 Is A Different Animal

Bitcoin Forks And Livestock Law? Tax Day 2018 Is A Different Animal

Bitcoin Forks and Livestock Law? Tax Day 2018 Is a Different Animal Stevie Conlon , Anna Vayser and Robert Schwaba Apr 8, 2018 at 22:01 UTC|UpdatedApr 9, 2018 at 11:46 UTC Stevie D. Conlon is a vice president and tax and regulatory counsel; Anna Vayser is a product manager and Robert Schwaba is a senior tax and regulatory specialist with Wolters Kluwer. They acknowledge the contributions of colleagues John Kareken and Cynthia Lapins. The following article, an exclusive contribution to CoinDesk's Crypto and Taxes 2018 series, is adapted from "Taxation of Bitcoin, Its Progeny, and Related Derivatives: Ex Coin Machina," published in Tax Notes, February 19, 2018. If the great bitcoin forks of 2017 entitled existing bitcoin holders to "free money," as was often said, do Americans have to pay tax on that windfall, and how much? This is a particularly timely question due to recent volatility in cryptocurrency values and the approaching April 17 U.S. deadline to file tax returns. Unfortunately, there is no guidance from the IRS or existing law specifically addressing the matter. However, current tax law should be considered. On a fork, the new cryptocurrency received (such as bitcoin cash, which split off from the main bitcoin network in August, or bitcoin gold, created in November) is not identical to the cryptocurrency already held. Generally, the definition of taxable income under U.S. tax law is broad and exceptions are few. For example, found property is generally taxable to the finder per IRS regulations, rulings and court cases. Although tax law excludes gifts from the recipient's income, it can be difficult to prove that a transfer is a gift and the exclusion is narrow. Similarly, prizes and awards are taxable income. And tax law providing tax-free treatment for stock Continue reading >>

This Week In Crypto | April 13, 2018

This Week In Crypto | April 13, 2018

For the first time weeks, weve seen some clear, positive upwards momentum for the coin-wide market. Cryptocurrencys comprehensive market cap is up 23% at $326bln, up from$248bln last Friday morning. But theres one caveat: most of this growth has come in the last 36hrs. Leading price movements as usual, Bitcoin rose roughly $1,000 dollars in a single hour, leaping from $6,800 to just over $7,700 between 7:00 and 8:00am on April 12th. Coinciding with this dramatic price movement, Bitcoin shorts were squeezed to their lowest volume in half a month, as roundabout 15,000 trades closed their position over the course of Thursday morning. As shorts were cut short and prices blew through the roof, Bitcoins one hour trading volume during its spike was $1.2bln, potentially the largest one hour volume in the currencys history. The upwards price movement is no doubt goodwere all happy about seeing some green in the portfoliobut this short squeeze was so spontaneous and the price movement so like recoveries weve seen earlier in 2018s bear market that were not drinking the bullish Kool-Aid yet. Still, shorts were at an all time high before price action shifted and some ~37% were liquidated, and the massive trading volume on Bitcoins one hour rise is encouraging. Positive developments, but stay savvy as we may not be cleared for takeoff yet. Bitcoin:As we went over above, Bitcoin underwent a drastic price increase yesterday morning. As of press time, its weekly price up 18%at $8,050. Ethereum:After performing poorly for a handful of weeks, Ethereum is looking even better than Bitcoin, up by 27% over the week with a price just over $510. Ripple:Ripple is on pace with Ethereum, sitting at $0.65 after rising 27% this week. Nano Team Pegged with Class Action Lawsuit Over Bitgrail Loses: T Continue reading >>

New Protocol: Bitcoin Cash To Hard Fork In May 2018

New Protocol: Bitcoin Cash To Hard Fork In May 2018

New Protocol: Bitcoin Cash to Hard Fork in May 2018 Join our community of 10 000 traders on Hacked.com for just $39 per month. The lead developer of full-node client Bitcoin ABC Amaury Schet has confirmed that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) will fork on May 15 to allow for bigger block sizes along with some other adjustments. Bitcoin ABC developers have also made the codebase for the client Bitcoin ABC 0.17.0 available for download ahead of the launch, with the new consensus rules included. The change is scheduled for May 15 at 12:00:00 UTC and will take place based on Median Time Passed (MTP) instead of at a set block height. Developers released an announcement saying when the median timestamp of the most recent 11 blocks is equal to, or greater than1526400000, then the new consensus rules shall apply to the next block. The exact time of activation depends on the time this block is found. The two main features are instant confirmation and scaling block size will increase up to 32MB with the new fork to allow for greater volume and speed of transactions. In an interview at the Satoshis Vision conference in March, Sechet described the scaling change as allowing Paypal-like volume of payments. Operational codes are being rewritten and added as well to introduce Ethereum-like characteristics,with the updated OP-codes and colored coin technology potentially enabling representative assets and basic smart contracts. Schet went on to voice his support for having multiple implementations of Bitcoin Cash from other development teams behind clients like Bitcoin Unlimited and Parity. Schet feels that multiple implementations of the protocol help keep things running smoothly: Its important to have several implementations for two reasons: the first is a technical reason. If there is a bad bug Continue reading >>

The alternative protocol asset (altcoin) rose to as much as $983.58 today, CoinMarketCap figures revealed. At this point, Bitcoin Cashwas up roughly 11.3% over the last 24 hours, additional CoinMarketCap data showed. Further, the cryptocurrency had risen more than 60% from the recent low of $603.71 it reached on April 6.

Anyone considering it should be prepared to lose their entire investment.] As digital currencies experience rising adoption, scaling remains one of the biggest challenges to their success, notedanalystSebastio Coelho. "Before we see mass adoption of cryptocurrencies, we need to see a significant reduction in the time it takes to process transactions," saidCoelho, CMO of Flashmoni , a blockchain company creating financial solutions for the unbanked and underbanked. Bitcoin Cash was created with these considerations in mind,using 8MB blocks instead of the 1MB blocks used by the more traditional Bitcoin.

Dogecoin (doge) Core Developers Distance Themselves From The Upcoming Dogethereum (dogx) Hark Fork

Dogecoin (doge) Core Developers Distance Themselves From The Upcoming Dogethereum (dogx) Hark Fork

Dogecoin (DOGE) Core Developers Distance Themselves from the Upcoming Dogethereum (DOGX) Hark Fork There are many people, cryptocurrency investors alike that still consider Dogecoin (DOGE) a joke at least according to the New York Times report published late 2017. Although the publication that described Dogecoin as a half-baked Bitcoin copy that was developed to dupe gullible people has already been amended; the damaged caused by the misinformation is yet to be repaired. However, Dogecoin seems to be to do fine all the same. One of the four Dogecoin founders, Ross Nicoll, has spent time clearing the myths that were popularised by the New York Times publication. In fact aside from the infamous myths, Dogecoin is in the middle of a project dubbed Doge-Ethereum bridge project. This ongoing development will allow Dogecoin to ride on Ethereum in order for it to be utilized in smart contracts. The project is testing the Ethereum network and is seen as a turning point for DOGE. It will elevate Dogecoin to the standards traders and merchants across the crypto world would like to see. Besides, the Dogethereum Bridge will tremendously scale up Dogecoin transactions improving usability. Nicoll goes ahead to dispel the negative rumours stating that Dogecoin like any other cryptocurrencies undergoes updates, occasional releases as well us usability which is commonly stress tested. On the contrary, Dogecoin (DOGE) is coming up as one of the most used cryptocurrencies in payments. Similarly, it is among the top ten used coins for sending payments. A quote from one of Nicolls interviews reads, We are very very careful with everything we do. Were taking code that is well tested keeping half a billion dollars of peoples money over four years stable. . . Were doing very very very well, T Continue reading >>

Bitcoin May Be Beat By These Cryptocurrencies In Coming Months | Fortune

Bitcoin May Be Beat By These Cryptocurrencies In Coming Months | Fortune

In the past, when cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have split in two, it was as if money fell from the sky. Take Bitcoins August fork, for instance. Mathematically speaking, one split in half results in two halves. But instead of adhering to that set of logic, that particular fork resulted in one plus a little extra. So while the price of Bitcoin hovered around $2,750, the price of its forked coin, Bitcoin Cash, traded initially at $200 . Thus, investors who owned Bitcoin woke up the next day with one Bitcoin Cash for each Bitcoin they owned, and all the wealthier for it. Such forks are one way to get cryptocurrency airdrops, or apparently free digital coins distributed to users that meet certain criteria. And its a phenomenon some cryptocurrency investors have chased in recent months in the hopes of profits. As Fundstrats Thomas Lee notes, that interest is enough for tokens with upcoming forks to maybe do well. Notably, Lee calls for investors to generally stay out of smaller cryptocurrencies, and stick with giants of the space. Tokens with upcoming forks and airdrops have outperformed bitcoin by 4.8% since the peak of altcoins, wrote Lee in a note Thursday. We identify six major forks/airdrops in next 90 days, which could support interest in these tokens. Here are the scheduled forks and airdrops Lee highlighted: Continue reading >>

Hard Fork News - Cointelegraph

Hard Fork News - Cointelegraph

A hard fork is a process of splitting any currency's Blockchain. It may be done for several reasons, such as fixing serious security loopholes in a cryptocurrency's source code, implementing new features and reverting transactions (as was the case for Ethereum's hard fork after The DAO was hacked). Hard forking requires a consensus of the majority of the nodes within the network of a cryptocurrency, after which they all switch to the new Blockchain, leaving the older version behind.

Crypto Hard Forks Tax Guidance Unlikely In Near Term: Lawyers

Crypto Hard Forks Tax Guidance Unlikely In Near Term: Lawyers

Crypto Hard Forks Tax Guidance Unlikely in Near Term: Lawyers For over 50 years, Bloomberg Taxs renowned flagship daily news service, Daily Tax Report has helped leading practitioners and policymakers stay on the cutting edge of taxation and... Allyson VersprilleWashingtonMeg ShreveWashington Temporary rules from the IRS on the tax treatment of 2017 cryptocurrency hard forks would be welcome, but its unlikely the agency will issue guidance anytime soon, tax practitioners told Bloomberg Tax. The American Bar Association Section of Taxation requested a temporary safe harbor for 2017 hard fork transactions in a March 19 letter . A hard fork occurs when theres a change to the software of a digital currency that creates two separate versions of the blockchain. For example, there are three official versions of bitcoin: bitcoin (BTC), bitcoin cash (BCH), and bitcoin gold (BTG). To date, the Internal Revenue Service has published very little guidance in the cryptocurrency space, so I cant imagine that this late in tax-filing season, the agency would decide to issue a ruling on hard forks, said Evan Fox, practice leader in the Digital Asset Advisory Services group at Berdon LLP in New York. Notice 2014-21 , which explains that virtual currencies are property for federal tax purposes, is the only guidance from the IRS. The hard fork issue is something that could potentially affect millions of taxpayers, said Bryan C. Skarlatos, a partner at Kostelanetz & Fink LLP in New York. Because forks occurred for the first time in 2017, affected taxpayers need fast guidance now so that they can prepare their 2017 tax returns, he said in an email. The filing deadline for 2017 tax returns is April 17, with an extended deadline in October. It would, of course, be fantastic if they did provide Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Cash (bch) Will Fork May 2018

Bitcoin Cash (bch) Will Fork May 2018

Bitcoin Cash was a result of a hard fork from Bitcoin core in August 2017, and on 15 May2018, it will fork again to update the consensus rules. The update includes various op code revisions but the biggest change is to accommodate 32MB block sizes. Bitcoin core retains the original 1MB block size whereas Bitcoin Cash will continue to use an 8MB block size until the May 2018 fork is implemented. Satoshi Nakamoto secretly introduced a limit to the block size in the core software, fearing that the network would be subject to denial of service (DOS) attacks without it. In the early days of Bitcoin, it was much easier to implement changes as the software wasnt analyzed by the community to the level it is today. The lead developer for Bitcoin Cash, Amaury Schet, has gone on record as saying that the new version 0.17.0 software will facilitate Ethereum-like features to the digital asset. Presumably smart contracts will become possible via the BCH blockchain in due course. A short video is available on YouTube in which Schet outlines some elements of the current roadmap for BCH. The video was recorded at the March 2018 Satoshis Vision conference in Tokyo. Although hard forks are sometimes inevitable, it can have a significant impact on the crypto ecosystem, and there is no guarantee that it will be accepted by the community. For users running a full node, its a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the latest version. However, its not as straightforward for exchanges that support the digital asset since they have to make modifications to their own internal software. Without a trading exchange, the digital asset has very little value, and if an exchange feels that the volume traded is too low, they could choose to remove the digital asset from the exchange rather Continue reading >>
