Bitcoin SV’s op_return upgrade exploited to store child abuse imagery6

A change to the Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) protocol has led to child exploitation material being posted to its blockchain, TheNextWeb reports.

nChain’s Bitcoin SV developer, ‘Shadders’, recently came together with developers and miners to lift the op_return limits, enabling a single transaction to hold up to 100KB of arbitrary data. As a result, entire webpages, images, and audio can be stored in one transaction. The upgrade did not require a hard fork as the parameter could be increased with miners simply agreeing on the limit.
