The world of cryptocurrencies brings exciting news angles to the world. There was a huge turmoil regarding the upcoming fork of Bitcoin Cash (which itself is the fork of Bitcoin).
Essentially, a rogue group proposing an alternative software claimed that they’d take any hash power they could get to seize control of the chain and ensure the canonical one (mainly supported by Bitmain, one of the largest manufacturer of mining equipment) will be eliminated.
Bitcoin Cash’s chain split scheduled for today has been activated at block number 556,766. Around three hours after the split, it appears as scheduled, Bitcoin Cash has split into two digital assets. It seems that the uprising has failed.
