No Activity And Empty Blocks: Bitcoin Cash in Development in a Ghost Town, Revealed by Github Data
Data harvested from Github repositories for both Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin, has caused the latest in a series of harsh contrasts between the surface and deep network performance on social media in recent weeks.
Bitcoin’s statistics were uploaded on Twitter 15th, Bitcoin’s stats place massive number of orders compared to Bitcoin Cash. To be more specific, BCH Github activity has trailed since April and is nearly inactive when compared to the consistent progress made by Bitcoin.
There has been other under performance seen on the network as well with usage.
As another commentator noted on Saturday, Bitcoin Cash blocks suffered from a low volume of transactions – with one block being reported this last weekend to have a mere 5 kilobytes on it. Also, Ironic, the commentator added, Bitcoin was functioning with 2-megabyte blocks faster than the token that bragged about having an increased block size to being needed for the survival of BTC.
Red Flags For Centralization
Bitcoin Cash’s interesting status continues to spread controversy as BitPico – a group of investors, operating with anonymity that was until now championed by the now no-operational SegWit2x platform for scaling.
During the last week, the attack on BitPico has caused the group’s node to become banned, also leading to the renewed accusations of Bitcoin Cash’s Centralized operations. The status node was banned on the central network also, along with a bunch of virtual proxy servers. They switched to an entirely new IP, and are operating again (as read on Twitter, July 11th).
Currently, they are monitoring the IP addresses as they seem to be turning into different groups, potentially for the purpose of creating a fake decentralized network.
As far as Bitcoinist has previously reported, the new purpose of the test being done to start multiple forks of the Bitcoin Cash chain, following the thousands of attack nodes.
Bitcoin Cash officials have not yet released comments formally on the plans, while bitPico has already publicly stated it has no belief left in the power of the supposedly powerful altcoin’s knowledge base. They don’t think the BitcoinCash users get how simple one can bring the network down if wanted, BitPico stated last month.
