Introduction to Cryptocurrency: BCH, Brother of BTC

Introduction to Cryptocurrency: BCH, Brother of BTC
Written by the CoinEx Institution, this series of jocular and easy to understand articles will show you everything you need to know about major cryptocurrencies, making you fully prepared before jumping into crypto!
BCH, which represents Bitcoin Cash, shares some same features as its big brother Bitcoin (BTC). Both are cryptocurrencies based on decentralization, using a peer-to-peer network and consensus initiative, going open source, and with the blockchain as the underlying technology.
https://preview.redd.it/pjndkv61frp41.png?width=1392&format=png&auto=webp&s=2b7521699e5bf417c351618ac7a9e357b4b9b44e
Now that we have BTC, what is BCH for?
To answer this question, we have to trace back to the source of BCH — BTC. Nakamoto created BTC in 2008, and he also limited the block size to 1M at that time. This restriction not only guarantees the participation of weak-performance personal computers, but also prevents the risk of attacks overloading the Bitcoin network; after all, the system was still in its infancy and was very fragile. Under the 1M limit, a block can hold up to about 2000 transactions in 10 minutes, or 7 transactions per second.
As users of BTC transactions were growing in numbers with time passing by, the 1M block size has been unable to carry the ever-increasing transaction volume. As a result, the BTC network appeared congested, transaction fees soared, and transaction packaging became time-consuming…
Such problems gave rise to the call for capacity expansion in the BTC community. Some developers, represented by the core developer Core, hoped to ease the BTC congestion by Segregated Witness + Lightning Network. The following three years has seen users argue over this issue. After all, it involved too many people and too many things, which can’t be solved in a short while.
Then came the time when community conflicts seemed to have reached deadlock, and disputes over the hard fork were getting intense. On August 1, 2017, BTC finally got a hard fork, and its little bro, BCH, was generated!
Due to the version switching, the BTC blockchain was forked into two separate blockchains. Before the fork, everyone who owned BTC was entitled to the same amount of BCH. In this way, the upper limit of the block was upgraded to 8M, and later to 32M, which solved such problems as high fees, slow confirmation, and poor practicability in the old version of the BTC system, and fulfilled BTC’s commitment to being the “peer-to-peer electronic cash”.
Since then, the Bitcoin community has been divided into two and everyone is happy.
It’s fair to say that BTC is the predecessor of BCH, but after the fork, BCH has always been considered as “BTC” in a new direction. Congestion will hardly happen in the BCH community as BCH has larger blocks and can handle more transactions, unlike BTC, which proved ineffective in processing growing transactions due to small blocks. That is also the most obvious difference between the two, making the transaction fee of BCH much lower than that of BTC.
The BCH community is theoretically different from the BTC community under the current Core team. To put it simply, there remains little connection between BCH and BTC, and BCH, separated from its predecessor, has become a brand new cryptocurrency.
BCH also has its advantages, such as decentralization, anonymity, fixed listing and smart contracts.
  1. The BCH network is jointly maintained by all users. Unless the vast majority of BCH users agree to make a certain change (such as rule modifications or version upgrade), no one or organization can change or stop BCH operation.
  2. Like the Internet, the BCH network is working all year round! For 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, you can transfer money to anyone around the world! Regardless of the amount, all transactions require no one’s authorization or approval.
  3. BCH also does a good job in anonymity. Generally there is no way to find who owns the address.
  4. Of course, BCH also has a fixed upper limit. The BCH protocol guarantees that there will never be more than 21 million BCH. Compared to the government that continuously issues currencies, depreciating everyone’s deposits, BCH has a ration of supply, and an extremely stable inventory.
  5. BCH is also a programmable currency, which can also implement smart contracts on the basis of currency. Programmable economy is an obvious solution to the transparency and credibility issues in economic operation, and can also reduce social operation costs.
Today BCH is maintained by several different development teams, and its market value has ranked second in the world. More and more merchants are accepting BCH payments, and there are multiple exchanges that support BCH pricing, such as CoinEx. CoinEx is also the first one to adopt BCH pricing.
Overseas, BCH supporters include former BitcoinCore chief developers Gavin Andresen and Roger Ver (known as Bitcoin Jesus).
In China, many of BCH supporters are veterans in this field, including Wu Jihan, Founder and CEO of Bitmain, Yang Haipo, Founder of ViaBTC / CoinEx, and Jiang Zhuoer, Founder of BTC.TOP Mining Pool.
At present, the circulating market value of BCH has reached 59.1 billion. By April 2020, BCH will perform the first halving at a block height of 630,000, and the reward will be reduced by 50% to 6.25 BCH after the halving.

Beginner friendly fundamental report on Litecoin (Bullish)

Source - Full Report
Litecoin (LTC) was founded in 2011 by Charlie Lee as a peer-to-peer digital currency designed to be complementary to, rather than a competitor of, Bitcoin. It has been likened to “digital silver,” as opposed to Bitcoin’s status as “digital gold.” Litecoin regularly touts its similarities to “Big Brother” Bitcoin, but differentiates itself by enabling cheaper transaction fees, the ability to handle more transactions per second, added emphasis on merchant and retailer adoption, and an increased maximum supply.

Bleeding Ethereum Price finally shows higher gains than Bitcoin

Bleeding Ethereum Price finally shows higher gains than Bitcoin

News by Altcoin Buzz: Deepika Garg
Ethereum and the sister altcoins experienced noteworthy price gains in the last 24 hours. However, the big brother Bitcoin struggled to cross the resistance at $11,000.
After a few “no recovery” months, the leading altcoins exhibited better signs of recovery than Bitcoin. This happened to Ethereum’s price after week-long bleeding. The gains surpassed the community expectation as it exhibited 6.4% gains at the time of press.
All the while Bitcoin maximalists had to stay happy with a slight correction of 1.3%. Sadly enough, that could not push Bitcoin price over the $11,000 fence. Hopes were high to cross the $11,000 mark as the coin touched $10,521 at 12:30 GMT.
That said, Ethereum traders rejoiced the 6.4% price recovery. After massive slamming by Bitcoin maximalists the entire last week, it was a welcome change. And this pushed the price to $181.16 at press time. Earlier this week, Ethereum announced that the Istanbul hard fork was pushed to October. Prior to the announcement, the major protocol and scalability update under the Istanbul fork was scheduled for September.
Having sunk from $1,725(2017) to current $1,80 Ethereum experts stated that it has bottomed. But these signs of positive resistance contend the philosophy.
Another noteworthy recovery happened with Ripple. The token surged up by 4.83% after falling off the LinkedIn’s “The 50 hottest U.S. companies to work for” 2019 list.
Several other altcoins that exhibited signs of recovery were Litecoin (7.50%), EOS (12.22%), NEO (2.73%), BCH (6.29%) and the list is long.
What catalyzed these gains is yet not clear but this was a weird day for altcoins.

An appeal to the community: Introduce Merge-Mining & switch to SHA256.

BTCP was launched as GPU-friendly coin, with the Equihash algo. Although I appreciate the arguing behind it, I strongly believe we should follow our big brother Bitcoin, and enable merge-mining BTC + BTCP.
With changing circumstances, we need to change our plans. With the current lower than expected price of Bitcoin Private, it is way too cheap to 51%-attack BTCP. In fact, it only costs a few hundred bucks per hour. That's way too cheap to take down a network currently valued at $55M. The current hashrate is atrocious, and in all honesty I'm not expecting it to be much higher any time soon. A changed algo will not magically increase the hashrate 10-fold, especially not with the current price.
This means that the network will remain insecure and susceptible to 51%-attacks. It has happened to Horizen (formerly ZenCash), Bitcoin Gold and Verge in recent months. A few days ago, BTCP was also targeted, though it did not succeed. A successful attempt seems to be a question of time.
By moving to SHA256, Bitcoin Private can take the advantage of Bitcoin's hashrate. In addition to the rebase, this also makes Bitcoin Private even closer to its big brother Bitcoin; the difference being BTCP's focus on Privacy.

Bitcoin Gains, Litecoin Ends Downtrend

Both bitcoin and litecoin made solid gains during the past week. Bitcoin is up by $505 dollars or 8% since last Tuesday while LTC is higher by $8.96 dollars or close to 9 percent.

Bitcoin Gains 8 Percent

Big brother bitcoin is up by over 8 percent. However, these gains weren’t enough to end the downtrend on the daily chart. For that to happen we need to see a breakout above $6,840 dollars per coin. A decisive break beyond $7,046 would start a new BTC rally.
