We must become organised to stop a corruption of the BCH protocol
Yesterday BitcoinABC released version 0.21 of their client. In this release a consensus rule is included that requires all BCH miners to pay5% of their block subsidyand5% of the fees they receive to a set of up to 4 BCH addresses. These addresses are controlled by:
This significant change in the protocol is to be activated using a BIP9 method. It will activate when at least 66% of 2016 blocks are produced by miners running their new release. There is no end date for the tax once it has been activated, so it will go on indefinitely unless manually removed with another hardfork. This is occurring in the context of an almost unanimous opposition by the BCH ecosystem of businesses, miners, projects and users. This is something that they are fully aware of and have decided to ignore and push ahead anyway. While it is of course true that the community needs to make sure there is sufficient funding for the projects within the BCH ecosystem that deserve it, and that the funding is provided voluntarily, there are currently numerous efforts under way to create software that makes this as simple as possible. For example, Flipstarter, U-DID, , and pool Donations. There is also a significant amount of will in the community to provide funding if sensible and concrete proposals are put forward. This change is not only a fundamental change to the properties of Bitcoin as described in the original whitepaper, but has the high likelihood of causing a major split if the entire ecosystem does not work towards stopping it from happening. Many of us are now organising an effort to oppose this fundamental change. We need as much of the ecosystem as possible to put their effort into stopping this if you don't want this to happen, so please join us at:
Hey /bitcoin I just recently created a wallet at Blockchain, but couldn't find an option to purchase bitcoin there, despite following their FAQ directions. I found out that there is a bitcoin kiosk about an hour's drive away from me and so I went there. The kiosk made me create a new wallet. I had $38 in cash on me, so I put that in. Apparently now it's worth $41.05 just a week later, so that's cool, but I haven't figured out how to spend it. I'm using http://wallet.romit.io/ but I can't find the wallet code anywhere. Does anyone else use that service and can help me out? Edit: I think I've got this figured out. Everyone on this sub is so extremely helpful, it's a breath of fresh air. Thank you all!
Hello guys, Im new to the whole bitcoin thing and was tryign to gget them through a coin cloud ATM. I had a hard time but finally got to my romit account with the bitcoins in it. I sent the bitcoins to mycelium on my phone, and the transaction has not showed up on mycelium (which usually takes seconds to show up and a few minutes to actually be spendable). I got home an hour later and still in the same boat, logged into romit and emailed support, and am not getting much help yet.Has anyone else been in the same situation? Is there any more info you need to check the blockchain or something? SOrry im a newb.
