August 1st to Mark the Anniversary of Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork, #BCHDay
2017 was not only the breakout year for Bitcoin. On August 1st, 2017, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was launched into the world via a hard fork of the original chain—and has been gaining traction ever since.
BCH prides itself to be closer to the original Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision and demonstrate that those original goals can be realized. As evident from May 2018, BCH showed that massive on-chain scaling is possible. The blockchain saw the introduction of the 32MB block size and the resurrection of several OP_Codes, which allow developers to build a complex project on top of the Bitcoin Cash blockchain and unleash its full capabilities.
The hardfork on August 1, 2017, should be not looked at as the birth of BCH, rather the rebirth of Bitcoin. That fork did not create a new coin but reverted to its original form that follows the vision of the Satoshi white paper.
Now with the Bitcoin Cash Day #BCHDay coming in less than a week, it is expected that a lot of parties, socials, and meetups will happen around the world to commemorate the return of the real Bitcoin.
Notably, in Hong Kong, leaders and development teams in the Bitcoin Cash community will gather for the “BCH Anniversary International Summit” at The Ritz Carlton. Speakers at the event include luminaries like Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver, Bitmain founder Jihan Wu, nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright, and BTC.top founder Jiang Zhuoer, according to the conference organizers.
