Cobra, the co-owner of Bitcointalk and Bitcoin.org has come up with a plan to stop the conflict of permanent blockchain split in the Bitcoin Cash network.
Cobra the founder of two most renowned firms ‘Bitcointalk and Bitcoin.org’ originally a critic of Bitcoin Cash ‘BCH’ has finally came intosupport of BCH,thoughexpressinghisamendments to the network’s Proof-of-Work (PoW)algorithm of BCH.
Recently he launched full node BitcoinCash implementation ina trialto stop a civil war between BCH developmentgroup namedABC developers and nChain developers from a network split thatwoulddamages the digital currency’sname.
As per his implementation he launched an new software ‘Cobra Client’ that adopts neither canonical dealings nor any of opcode activations planned by Bitcoin ABC and nChain, which as per Cobra lack immediate activation support.
This will ensure users with the ‘Replay Protection’ where the users won’tbein any dangerof replay attacksthatoccurwhen a spammerbroadcasts several constant transactionsonto multiple blockchain forks — if the existing BCH network splits intotwo different networks, theadditionalchains following theschedulednetwork fork in expected inNov. this year.
Mentioning further of this split the Cobra mentioned this as a ‘disaster’ for BCH causing a everlasting damage. He said:
“Such agreementfailurearea disaster for all investors and users of BCH,howeverit’svirtuallynot possibleto avoid this fornowas all the developers and minersconcernedrefuse toback down. Such astate of affaircanwipe outimmenseamount of Bitcoin Cash,resulting intotal ridicule of the currency, and widespread loss of trust andsupport. Such an injuryis justnotworthwhile. Some developers and minerswill have toavoid having their egoscontusedaround somelargelyunimportant and non-urgent changes. Evena briefforkcancause a long lastinginjury.”
This isn’tthe primaryattempt to make a compromisepriorthe fork. Bitcoin Unlimited, whose software client is currently employed by approximately 1/3 of BCH node operators, has said that it will implement all the changes proposed by ABC and nChain developers in its software and willencourage its users to support for a compromise.
