Bitcoin believe that if miners see that mined miners are successfully mining Classic blocks they will eventually join. Follow us on Facebook. Sat Feb 27, 7: Bitcoin classic is a blocks threat to mining profits and an attack on the Bitcoin network. If Classic Core releases an economically viable hard fork to increase the block size, then Breadwallet is willing to support Bitcoin Core instead of Bitcoin Classic.
Especially KnCMiner appears to be on a roll when it comes to mining Bitcoin Classic blocks on the network. That being said, there is an excellent chance the sixth block will be found on the network later today, though. So fees would have to increase many fold for this to work Miners have stated many times that they want to scale. The average block size has grown dangerously close to the limit. Bitcoin companies, such as Bread Wallet, stated that they will support a hard fork to increase the block size in the near future.
Classic is getting a bitcoin of bitcoin from Bitcoin Classic supporters on Reddit, although some people are jumping the gun. Like all hard forks however, the implementation of Bitcoin Classic could potentially result in a network split, which will allow the Classic chain and Core chain to co exist. While this battle has no overall effect mined the total Bitcoin hashrate in most cases, there seems to blocks a new competitive edge between both software solutions.

Each coin will be transact-able separately and will have a different market value. Most of the exchanges will probably support both Chains, hence each Coin will have different market value based on supply and demand.
Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong explains that historically, in the event of a split-chain, the minority chain drops out in a matter of minutes, which eliminates the danger of implementing a hard fork like Bitcoin Classic.
Two thirds of the mining market share is currently controlled by three Chinese bitcoin companies, BitFury, F2Pool and Antpool.
There is an opinion within these companies that Western companies, like Coinbase and Circle, are trying to push the implementation of Bitcoin Classic to eliminate centralization of mining power.
In the west however, people are more used to competition between multiple authorities, and deem centralization as great threat. So opponents like Classic, tend to gain more sympathy in the west, but hostility in the east. If activated, the new software would constitute a split in the bitcoin network, each with its own divergent transaction histories after the point of divergence. Since it was unveiled last month, Bitcoin Classic has attracted both supporters and detractors who, depending on their point of view, say it represents either the next phase for bitcoin development or a threat to its very existence.
So far, the proposal, which would effectively split the existing history of bitcoin transactions into two one with 2 MB blocks and one with 1 MB blocks , has garnered significant support from startups working in the bitcoin space, as well as a number of bitcoin miners. Discussions about the proposal, as well as the broader issue of whether to increase the transaction capacity on the bitcoin network, have raged on social media for weeks.
Preliminary data suggests that the number of nodes running Bitcoin Classic is on the rise. According to node data site Coin. Going forward, adoption depends on a majority of node operators and miners taking the step to break away from the existing network.
To date, new versions of the bitcoin software have been rolled out via voluntary soft forks. With the release also comes an updated list of developers and contributors. Opponents say the changes proposed are too fast and too risky, given what they say are lingering questions about how a hard fork — wherein nodes are required to download new software or risk being effectively cut out of the network due to incompatibility — could be successfully conducted.
Questions have also been raised about aspects of the governance system proposed for Bitcoin Classic, the introduction of two functioning blockchains that share years of transaction history and each with its own network of assets, and the exact degree of support from bitcoin miners for Bitcoin Classic versus a broader block size increase, particularly those based in China.
At the same time, there appears to be support among developers in the bitcoin community for some form of capacity increase, including a raising of the block size. Bitcoin Core developers and supporters have rallied around a proposal called Segregated Witness that changes how signature data is included in transactions. This proposal has its detractors as well, who say that it adds unnecessary complexity to the network. Overall, the debate has proven to be as acrimonious as it has been divisive.

Interested in offering your expertise or insights to our reporting? Are you really still sprouting that lie that has been debunked a million times? It is no not an alt coin because 1 it uses the same genesis block as bitcoin.
If the majority change, then that becomes bitcoin. No change can happen without this consensus so it is blatantly false to call classic an alt.
There is an emergency as blocks are full. You are either dishonest in your communication or ignorant of the facts to claim there is no emergency. There has been thorough testing on classic. It is also dishonest to claim this has not happened. We should do it again sometime. Bitcoin classic is a direct threat to mining profits and an attack on the Bitcoin network. Classic just as XT before it is heading to the altcoin ash heap. There will be many applications built upon the Bitcoin protocol the will enable scaling.
There is no emergency and no need to rush development without thorough testing. Help spread Bitcoin by linking to everything mentioned here: Okay great, time is the true test of any statement, I stand by every word I wrote.
