Bitcoin Cash: Single Mining Pool Controls 50% of Hashrate

Bitcoin Cash mining centralization has reached a level where just one pool is controlling half of its hashrate, according to Coin Dance.

The crypto statistics service found that BTC.TOP mining pool, a China-based private entity, took over as high as 50.2% of the entire Bitcoin Cash network at some point today. It contributed the hashrate of 679 Peta-Hash per second against other major competing pools including BTC.com (257 PH/s), ViaBTC (215 PH/s), AntPool (125 PH/s), and Bitcoin.com (187 PH/s).

Bitcoin Cash and Centralization

The notable increase could have taken place due to variance but, at the same time, it threatens the Bitcoin Cash network with a potential 51% attack scenario. The Roger Ver-led blockchain project has been criticized before for failing a “stress test,” conducted at the behest of an anonymous developer(s) known as Bitpico. Evidence showed that 98% of all the Bitcoin Cash nodes were sitting on the same server rack which exposed the coin to seizures and security threats.

In early 2018, Alex Simons, the identity division chief at Microsoft, found that increasing block size such as those done by the Bitcoin Cash team threatened decentralization more than second-layer scalability solutions like Lightning Network.

“While some blockchain communities have increased on-chain transaction capacity (e.g. block size increases), this approach generally degrades the decentralized state of the network and cannot reach the millions of transactions per second the system would generate at world-scale,” he had said.

What’s Next for Bitcoin Cash

The central aspect of any decentralized blockchain project is its ability to guard the system against central control. In a worst-case scenario, malicious mining entities could combine their hashrate output to form a stable coalition. It could make them prevent transactions from getting confirmed; it could allow them even to reverse the confirmed transactions or spend one valid token twice by creating a new chain or by altering old blocks.

Bitcoin Gold, for instance, suffered a 51% attack on its network in 2018 where attackers double-spent BTG tokens for several days. They eventually stole $18 million worth of Bitcoin Gold tokens, according to the BTG/USD exchange rate at the time of the attack. In August 2016, two Ethereum-based crypto projects, Krypton and Shift, also suffered 51% attack on their networks.

In some cases, mining pools which unintentionally crossed the 50% hashrate barrier voluntarily reduced their computing power with the purpose of redistributing it to other mining pools. GHash.io, for instance, had exceeded 50% of the bitcoin’s computing power in July 2014 but reduced it back to 40% after facing a community backlash.

What BTC.TOP could do is what GHash.io had done in its time: let go of some of the computing power to reinject trust in the Bitcoin Cash network. If it doesn’t scale back, the digital currency could suffer hugely as investors’ sentiment wears off.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH): 5 Possible Scenarios after Contentious Hard Fork

On November 15, Bitcoin Cash braces for the “hash wars,” essentially an expensive, sustained 51% attack aimed at taking over the coin.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is facing a watershed moment given that the first Bitcoin (BTC) hard fork has left the community and miners split over the future direction of the network. This time, however, the attempt to steer the course of the coin would take the form of a 51% attack, testing the understanding for network consensus.

A 51% attack is often viewed as disastrous for the credibility of a coin, allowing miners to alter the distributed ledger, double-spend, or perform other actions on the network. The way the Bitcoin Cash SV version would be implemented is precisely this: sustained mining of an alternative chain. However, the version of Graig Wright will have only 182 nodes to run against 1,103 ABC nodes.

Taking Bitcoin’s history as an example, the nodes signaling their allegiance is a form of consensus. At least in the case of the SegWit2X wars for influence, it was not hashrate but nodes that defined the dominance of one version over the other.

But the attempt to take over Bitcoin Cash is hostile. Here are the possibilities following the switch of 72% of the Bitcoin Cash hashrate to the SV version.

Bitcoin Cash dies: BCH becomes a coin with two separate ledgers, under a constant 51% attack. No one is certain which version would survive. With no replay protection, siding with one version could mean a total loss. Chaos on exchanges ensues. No one can tell how long the hash wars may continue, but, in effect, the supporting sides would mine blocks and receive rewards of an asset that may not exist.

One of the versions capitulates: The hash wars could end if one of the chains raises the white flag. However, it is unknown who would be the arbiter of the winning chain, and both may try to produce “the longer chain.” Exchanges may become arbiters as some are ready to accept one version over the other. There is no timeframe for deciding which chain would be longer, but even one block could suffice. Nodes, however, are not enough to define a version’s dominance in the final analysis. Based on the Bitcoin white paper, the principle of deciding on the version of the blockchain entails both nodes and miners. As it says there, “The system is secure as long as honest nodes collectively control more CPU power than any cooperating group of attacker nodes.”

Wright has promised a never-ending attack:

Both versions split off: It is possible that two versions of Bitcoin Cash survive. There are different scenarios for this. The supporters of Bitcoin Cash SV seem more adamant about taking over the ticker and posing as “the original Bitcoin Cash.” At the same time, the other version may not admit defeat and may proceed to create a new digital asset. This would be a best-case scenario since holders of BCH could end up owning two types of digital assets, both with a chance to show up on exchanges. It is impossible to predict which version would be deemed more valuable, and the market would decide which the dominant one is.

Bitcoin Cash ABC changes PoW: In case the attack becomes too long and too expensive, the impossibility to save the ABC version by brute force mining may lead to an emergency upgrade. Talks of a possible proof-of-work (PoW) change, in essence making the chain independent, may leave the SV version free to mine the old type of blocks while having no way to take over the ABC version.

Litecoin’s Charlie Lee was skeptical of this scenario:

The SV version gets defeated: Defeat for the Satoshi’s Vision version may come by way of emergency mining from Bitmain. Recently, Roger Ver suggested he may redirect hashing power from the Bitcoin.com mining pooldespite users’ wishes to defend the ABC version. There are also expectations that Bitmain will step up to ensure the stability and continuation of a BCH version. Protecting a stash of one billion coins may be incentive enough for Bitmain to burn money on mining and defend the version of a blockchain.

Hours before the fork, BCHSV, the pre-fork asset, fell toward $167 hours after briefly “flippening” the ABC version. BCHABC trades at above $278. BCH prices plunged to $427 before recovering to $445.88.

The hard fork for the ABC version is expected at 4:40 UTC on November 15, which is also the potential hour for the launch of the “hash wars.”

Mining Giant Bitmain Hurries to Deploy 90,000 S9 Antminers Ahead of Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork

Ahead of the imminent Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork, mining giant Bitmain has rushed to deploy around 90,000 Antminer S9 machines to the western Chinese region of Xinjiang, Chinese blockchain news source DeepChain reports Nov. 8.

As reported, the BCH network will hard fork on Nov. 15, and Bitmain is reported to be strategizing its role in the forthcoming computing “power war” by reaching out to local mining farms in the coal-rich region of Xianjing.

Local mining pool operator Yu Hao told DeepChain that the mining titan has been in talks with “almost all” the local mining farms since late October, and persuaded them to host almost 90,000 of its S9 machines:

“[Bitmain’s] AntPool requested that a single mining farm should host over 5,000 machines. But in fact, only a few mining farms can satisfy their demand.”
An unnamed source “familiar with the matter” has claimed that “half of [Bitmain’s] marketing staff have gone to Xinjiang to talk with local mining operators about deploying equipment.”

As DeepChain outlines, the power glut in coal-rich regions such as Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia has been advantageous for firms such as Bitmain, as hydropower stations in southwest China have been unable to supply sufficient power to meet their energy-intensive needs.

Beijing-born Bitmain, which is a major holder of Bitcoin Cash, is backing BCH client Bitcoin ABC, which has spearheaded the forthcoming hard fork. ABC’s proposed scalability upgrades have been starkly opposed by an opposing camp, nChain, led by self-proclaimed “Satoshi Nakomoto” Craig S. Wright.

Wright is advocating for a BCH protocol known as Bitcoin-SV (BSV), but so far major mining pools such as BTC.com, AntPool, Btc.top, ViaBTC, Bitcoin.com have all backed Bitcoin ABC, as DeepChain further reports.

CoinGeek, reportedly the largest BCH mining pool, BMG, and SBI have all backed BSV, according to DeepChain, which further reports that some Chinese miners plan to mine BSV as early as Nov. 10 as a “warm-up” to ensure maximum efficiency by the time the fork is initiated.

Notably, largest global crypto trading platform Binance has recently announced its support of the hard fork, a possible reason for the recent major price hike of the asset.
As of press time, Bitcoin Cash is trading at $600.94, up 46.1 percent since Nov.1. As DeepChain notes, Binance has been joined by leading U.S. crypto exchange Coinbase in endorsing the network upgrade.

Bitmain continues to compete with other mining hardware makers to have the technological edge; this week, the firm released two new 7nm (nanometer) Antminers, equipped with next-generation ASIC chips.

Bitcoin and Altcoins Consolidating Gains Above Key Supports

Bitcoin price
A fresh correction wave was initiated from well above the USD 6,600 level in bitcoin price . BTC/USD traded below the USD 6,575 level and tested the USD 6,550 support (the previous resistance). The price is currently consolidating and it seems like there could be a renewed upside above USD 6,580 in the near term.
On the flip side, if there is an extended downside correction, the price may perhaps test the next major support at USD 6,500. The overall price action is positive as long as bitcoin is above USD 6,550 and USD 6,500.

Ethereum price
Ethereum price also corrected lower recently and traded below the USD 220 level. ETH/USD tested the USD 215 level and it is currently consolidating. If it stays above USD 215, there might be an upward move above the USD 220 level.
If not, the price could slide further towards the USD 208 support, which was a significant barrier for buyers previously and now it is likely to hold losses.

Bitcoin cash and ripple price
Bitcoin cash price started a sharp downside correction below the USD 600 level. BCH/USD is down more than 4% and it is currently heading towards the USD 570 support. If there are further losses, the price may well test the USD 550 support. On the upside, an initial resistance is near USD 600, above which the price may retest USD 630.
Ripple price is slightly under pressure as it failed to stay above the USD 0.530 and USD 0.525 support levels. The next major support awaits near USD 0.500 where XRP/USD will most likely find a strong buying interest. On the upside, the previous supports at USD 0.525 and USD 0.530 might act as resistances.

Other altcoins market today
Despite the recent correction in bitcoin, a few small cap altcoins traded higher between 5%-8%, including POLY, WAX, BAT and NPXS. Out of these, POLY is up around 8% and WAX gained roughly 7%.
To sum up, it seems like bitcoin is correcting recent gains, but there are many supports on the downside between USD 6,560 and USD 6,500. If there is a downside break below USD 6,500, there are chances of a sharp decline in BTC/USD. Similarly, ethereum must stay above the USD 208 and USD 202 support levels. If not, there is a risk of a fresh bearish wave below USD 200.

This Chicken Coop Feeder Is Powered by Bitcoin Cash Payments in Real Time

On Oct. 25, an individual posted a live stream on the Twitch Interactive video platform to show the world how Bitcoin Cash (BCH) proponents can instantly feed his chickens online using zero-confirmation transactions. Since the stream kicked off, people have processed over $300 worth of BCH transactions to feed the fowl. 

Feeding Chickens With Bitcoin Cash

The peer-to-peer cryptocurrency bitcoin cash is being used to feed chickens in an unusual manner. Just recently, BCH enthusiast Spencer Lambert told the public how they can feed his chickens using BCH and watch them get fed in real time on a Twitch live stream channel. To feed Lambert’s chickens, users simply need to send $0.50 worth of BCH to the coop’s address. After the money is sent, a cryptocurrency-powered dispenser flips a switch and pours out mealworms. According to Lambert, the “24/7 stream of our wonderful chicken life” uses the Handcash application coupled with an Iozeta-manufactured, cryptocurrency-enabled touchless candy machine.

On the payment side, users simply send $0.50 of BCH with the Handcash.io handle “$CHICKEN” to start the power outlet. The Handcash wallet uses a name system, otherwise known as a “handle,” to make payments easier than using long alphanumeric BCH addresses. The process also utilizes zero-confirmation transactions, so once a transaction is broadcast, the mealworms are almost instantly dispensed. Lambert explained that the payments “take place in a fraction of a second, more or less instant.” He said he put up the money for the operation, adding that “mealworms don’t come cheap.”

Iozeta Touchless Dispenser

This Chicken Coop Feeder Is Powered by Bitcoin Cash Payments in Real TimeLambert’s system uses an Iozeta touchless candy machine to dispense the chicken feed. Basically, users pay the QR code and the machine flips a switch to dispense candy, mealworms or anything else that will fit through the chute. The machine accepts bitcoin cash, litecoin, dash, and ravencoin, but Iozeta also manufactures a cryptocurrency power adapter. Paul Lambert, one of Iozeta’s co-founders, has explained how the candy dispenser works on Youtube:

Once the Cryptocandy candy dispenser detects a new payment to the cryptocurrency address you specify, it activates the ‘payment received’ light and the motion sensor, allowing for candy to be dispensed. When the customer has received the candy, the
motion sensor is again turned off.

Memochicken

BCH proponents have commended Lambert’s BCH-powered chicken feeding system on social media forums such as Twitter and Reddit. Many well-known cryptocurrency enthusiasts have also tested the system, including Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong.

Moreover, Unwriter has created an application called Memochicken, which the prolific BCH developer has described as a “fun but internally highly sophisticated” bitcoin app with a full event-driven architecture.

“(Post) a memo with Money Button, and pick up the real-time transaction event through Bitsocket, which then queries the Handcash handle $chicken for the receiving address, which then queries Coinbase price API for the currency exchange rate for $0.50 in BCH, and then finally send the chickens $0.50 in BCH, which triggers the already-so-cool chicken feeding Twitch stream by Spencer Lambert,” Unwriter explained after releasing the Memochicken application.

Lambert’s Twitch live stream and poultry feeding system can be seen here. The chicken’s first breakfast feeding begins at 9:20 a.m. EDT every day.

Bitcoin and Ripple Could Resume Bullish Moves

Bitcoin price
There were positive moves in bitcoin price above the USD 6,350 level recently. BTC/USD traded above the USD 6,400 resistance to enter a bullish zone. However, the price failed to clear the USD 6,450 level and later it started a downside correction.
The price is currently consolidating near the USD 6,450 level and it seems like it could climb higher once again. If it corrects further lower, buyers might appear near the USD 6,390 and USD 6,350 levels. On the upside, a break above the USD 6,450 resistance could push the price towards the USD 6,500 hurdle.

Ethereum price
Ethereum price also moved higher and broke the USD 197 and USD 199 resistances. ETH/USD also spiked towards the USD 204 level before retreating back to USD 200.
The price is currently testing the USD 200 level, below which it could test the USD 198 level. If there are further declines, sellers are likely to take control for a push towards the USD 190 level in the near term.

Bitcoin cash and ripple price
Bitcoin cash price is slowly moving higher, but it is still struggling to clear the USD 430 resistance. BCH/USD may gain traction if there is a break above the USD 430 and USD 440 resistance levels. The main supports on the downside are USD 420 and USD 410.
Ripple price remained in a bullish zone and moved above the USD 0.455 resistance. XRP/USD traded close to the USD 0.460 level and it is currently consolidating gains. If there is a break above the USD 0.460 resistance, the price may climb towards USD 0.475.

Other altcoins market today
A few small cap coins traded higher today and gained between 5%-12%, including RVN, BAT, ZRX, WAX, SRAT and CNX. Out of these, RVN gained around 10% and BAT is up roughly 7%.
Overall, bitcoin is slowly recovering and if there is a strong move above the USD 6,450 resistance, buyers are likely to take control. On the other hand, if BTC/USD fails to stay above USD 6,400, it could decline back towards USD 6,300. Major altcoins like ethereum and ripple are also trading with a bullish angle and they might trade steadily higher.

Bitcoin and Ethereum Stuck in a Tiny Range

During the past few days, bitcoin traded in a tight range above the USD 6,400 support. BTC/USD climbed above the USD 6,500 resistance, but it failed to gain momentum above the USD 6,550 and USD 6,600 resistances. Similarly, ethereum price traded in a range above the USD 200 handle. ETH/USD needs to surpass the USD 208 and USD 210 hurdles to move into a bullish zone. Overall, the current price action (UTC 08:20 AM) indicates that both major cryptocurrencies are preparing for the next big move, which is likely to ignite a lot of volatility in the market.

Bitcoin price
There is a strong support formed near the USD 6,400 level in bitcoin price . BTC/USD is currently trading in a USD 100 range, with an immediate resistance at USD 6,490. A successful close above the USD 6,490 and USD 6,500 resistance levels is likely to set the pace for an extended upward move towards USD 6,550. However, the price must break the USD 6,600 weekly resistance for a larger rally in the coming days.
On the flip side, an immediate support is at USD 6,450. If the price breaks the USD 6,450 support, it could visit the main weekly support near USD 6,400, below which sellers are likely to take control.

Ethereum price
Ethereum price is confined in a range above the USD 200 support. ETH/USD is facing many hurdles near the USD 206, USD 208 and USD 210 levels. Therefore, a daily close above USD 210 is needed for an upside acceleration.
On the other hand, if there is a downside break below the USD 200 support, the price is likely to decline sharply towards the USD 185 pivot level.

Bitcoin cash and ripple price
Bitcoin cash price is currently consolidating below the USD 440 resistance, which was a support earlier. BCH/USD must break the USD 450 and USD 460 weekly resistances to climb towards USD 500 this week. If not, there is a risk of a downside break towards the USD 400 support in the near term.
Ripple price is trading with a bullish bias above the USD 0.440 and USD 0.450 supports. As long as XRP/USD is holding gains above the USD 0.440 support, it is likely to trade higher towards USD 0.500 and USD 0.520.

Other altcoins market today
Most altcoins traded in a range during the past few hours, but a few were up between 5%-15%, including NXT, POLY, MGO, FUN, IOST, REP and PAY.
Overall, bitcoin and ethereum are stuck in a tiny range and it seems like both are preparing for the next big move. If BTC/USD surpasses the USD 6,600 resistance, there could be a rally towards USD 7,000 or USD 7,200. Conversely, a daily close below USD 6,400 may well push the price towards USD 6,000 and USD 5,800.

Bitcoin and Ethereum At Risk of More Declines

Bitcoin price
There was no upward move above USD 6,500 in bitcoin price . BTC/USD remained under pressure and it slowly moved down towards the USD 6,450 support. At the outset, it seems like the price is struggling to remain above the USD 6,450 support and it could continue to move down towards the USD 6,400 support.
If sellers gain momentum, there is a risk of a downside break towards the USD 6,250 level in the near term. On the other hand, buyers need to clear the USD 6,500 and USD 6,550 barriers to push the price back in a positive zone.

Ethereum price
Ethereum price also followed bitcoin as it struggled to break the USD 205 resistance zone. ETH/USD is currently moving lower towards the main support at USD 200.
If sellers succeed in gaining strength below the USD 200 support, the price may decline sharply towards the USD 190 or USD 185 level. On the upside, an immediate resistance is at USD 205, above which the price may attempt to surpass USD 208 and USD 210.

Bitcoin cash and ripple price
Bitcoin cash price declined below the USD 440 support, which is a bearish sign. It seems like BCH/USD could continue to decline towards the next support at USD 425. The next key support below USD 425 is near the USD 405 level. The main resistance for an upward move is near the USD 450 level.
Ripple price is currently consolidating above the USD 0.450 support. XRP/USD may climb further higher if there is a break above the USD 0.460 and USD 0.462 resistances. On the flip side, a break below USD 0.450 may increase bearish pressure on ripple.

Other altcoins market today
Today, a few altcoins gained more than 10%, including revain, kyber network (KNC), veritaseum and nexo. Out of these, revain rallied more than 30% and KNC gained around 25%.
Overall, bitcoin price seems to be under pressure below USD 6,500. If BTC/USD continues to struggle to clear the USD 6,500 and USD 6,550 resistance, there could be a fresh downward move. Altcoins also remain at a risk of a downside break if they continue to face heavy selling interest.

Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash draw the attention of Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful

Kevin O’Leary, Co-founder of O’Leary and Softkey, aka Shark Tank’s Mr. Wonderful invested $100,000 an app which could convert spare change into Bitcoin [BTC] and other cryptocurrencies, in exchange for 50% equity in Bundil.

The app automatically invests users change from their debit or credit purchases in cryptocurrencies. It sums up the day’s expenses and invests the space in cryptocurrency. The app supports top cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Litecoin [LTC] and Bitcoin Cash [BCH].The Founder of the app, Dimitri Love came to the show with the hope of raising over $100,000 for 10% equity. All the sharks except O’Leary backed out from investing in the app.

However, the offer made by Mr. Wonderful resulted in an unsettling environment as the proposed equity was 50%. The proposal left all the other sharks claiming that it was an unreasonable demand including Dimitri Love. Nonetheless, in the end, Love struck the deal with O’Leary, settling at 50% equity for $100,000.
Daymond John, Founder and CEO of FUBU, commented on the deal, stating that Love was not happy with the deal and looked “miserable”.

O’Leary also seemed to be quite optimistic about his investment, irrespective of his general perspective on apps. He  said on Twitter:
“#bundil could be the real deal! But the big problem with apps is that almost all fail within 36 months…this guy is going to need A LOT of help! #sharktank”

Omnipedia, a Redditor said:
“OMG, if you have a cryptocurrency app, you should damn well know what cryptocurrency is. Kevin was very generous. More than I would be. This app is trivial- the heavy lifting is done by an off the shelf service and he’s just making a UI for it… and there are competition doing the exact same thing going back four years.”

Busymon0, another Redditor said:
“Man that dude really looked super miserable when hugging Kevin after giving away 50% of his company. I for some reason feel like he will back out of the deal afterwards when reality hits him.”

Crypto Mining Giant Bitmain Acquires Bitcoin Cash Wallet

Open source browser-based cryptocurrency wallet Telescope has officially announced its acquisition by Bitmain Technologies Inc., the world’s largest crypto mining rig manufacturer, which also runs one of the world’s most extensive cryptocurrency mining pools. The move comes at an important time for Bitmain, which is increasing its involvement in the bitcoin cash space as it continues to reinvent itself as more than just an ASIC maker ahead of its planned mega-IPO in Hong Kong.

Telescope is a browser-embedded cryptocurrency wallet that currently allows users of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox to send and receive BCH through a browser extension. Set up earlier in 2018 by former IBM software engineer Aaron Angert, Telescope also offers support for BitPay and MoneyButton. While it is currently optimized for Chrome and Firefox, the plan is for the application to eventually offer full support for other leading browsers as the project grows.

Telescope transaction keys are saved in the application’s browser extension, and then transactions are signed by the user’s browser directly and sent to a BCH block explorer. Cross-browser private keys are encrypted via the blockchain, guaranteeing safe storage of user funds, just like standalone cryptocurrency wallets.

Speaking about Bitmain’s acquisition of Telescope, the company’s Lead Developer Aaron Angert said:

“I am extremely proud of what Telescope has been able to achieve so far and am excited for its future with the additional help and support of Bitmain. We are honored to be a part of the bitcoin cash community, as a vibrant collection of individuals contributing towards the development of blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency industry.”

Also reacting, Nishant Sharma, Head of International PR and Communications at Bitmain said:

“We are extremely proud of Telescope wallet and the simple but key innovation that the project brings to the bitcoin cash eco-system. Browser-embedded cryptocurrency wallets are a promising technology. The Telescope development team is doing some very interesting work and we look forward to working together with them on the Telescope project and future bitcoin cash projects.”

In August, CCN reported that Bitmain is sitting on bitcoin cash reserves worth nearly $600 million, or more than 5 percent of all the 17.3 million BCH in existence. The acquisition of Telescope comes as Bitmain’s latest bet on bitcoin cash after the company threw its weight behind the faction that turned into BCH during the bitterly-contested bitcoin fork in 2017.
