    Bitcoin Cash Can’t Mine Blocks Over 2 MB, Developer Suggests

    A developer of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network has recently talked about the mining capabilities of the popular cryptocurrency. Amaury Séchet, a prominent developer of the community, has recently suggested that the network could not mine any block larger than 2 MB.

    Séchet is known for being the lead dev behind the first implementation of Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin ABC. For him to admit this is a big deal, especially when we remember why BCH and Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) split. Roger Ver, the creator of BSV, has championed bigger blocks as the cure for all the problems that could be found in Bitcoin.

    Some people, such as “Grubles”, the engineer from Blockstream, affirmed that it was not really a big deal, but others seemed concerned about the problems that could arise from the newly found limit.

    AvatarX, the forum moderator of Bitcoinated, claimed that BCH was not even able to maintain blocks of over 1 MB for 30 days straight, so it was not really that surprising to find out that the network actually had problems to go other the 2 MB mark.

    Recently, BCH has been falling in comparison with BTC, so this reveal is certainly not getting people any more bullish. One of the reasons why BCH was created was to actually have big blocks that could be more efficient, so not being able to provide an answer for this problem can certainly become a problem for the network in the long term.

    Ever since its latest hard fork back in November last year, the BCH team has been facing more and more difficulties, so its future is uncertain right now.
