The ABC vs SV fork is a good real world test of the Nakamoto Consensus. Though not perfect because if BCH dies, miners can go back to mining BTC. What happens when there's an ideological entity that has the means to 51% attack a competing fork? We will find out tomorrow! 🍿 twitter.com/BitcoinMagazin…

At first, Craig Steven Wright was a villain.

But now, he's just cancerous. He's affecting both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash in a negative way, starting a hash war which wastes resources on both chains.

It's all personal for him, he's a maniac. Don't support this fool.

If you are in BCH, you should be very concerned about what's happening. A single MAJORITY miner is mining at a loss, driving hash power away. The coin is de facto centralized right now.

  • 20 hours ago
  • 172

A similar thing happened to BTC 3 years ago when GHash crossed the 51% boundary. That led to a scramble which involved gentle persuasion of the offending miner, and was resolved without much public fanfare.

  • 20 hours ago

Remember that the entire value proposition of a decentralized PoW currency is lost if a miner drives out others to amass >51%. It's the equivalent of an attack known in international trade as dumping.

  • 20 hours ago

This attack has already started. It has nothing to do with CTOR or DSV, and everything to do with control.

Let me repeat, the attack is under way, and the first casualty was the decentralization of the coin.

  • 20 hours ago
  • 13

Because this attack will drive the price of the coin to $0 if left unchecked, expect a reaction from people with vested long term interests. Miners have historically not faced a single entity trying to take over a coin.

Some people are worried about the impact of the $BCH hashwar on Bitcoin.
Price-wise: it's solid fud (articles like this bloomberg.com/news/articles/… ) The $BCH actors don't have that much $BTC left to play with (just look at Bitmain's numbers from the IPO)

  • 8 hours ago
  • 54
  • 172
  • 435

Hash-wise: People are worried about miners switching to $BCH to fight the battle. This will happen. Roger already announced it, Jihan can't afford to not do it considering the amount of $BCH Bitmain holds.
We all know that when hashrate disappears $BTC blocks come slower.

  • 8 hours ago

"Lucky" for us Bitcoiners the impact won't be as big as an actual coordinated "attack" of withholding hashrate. The difficulty adjustment for Bitcoin will happen soon (~190-ish blocks) and it will be a negative one, so it becomes easier to mine.

  • 8 hours ago
  • 8
  • 38
  • 78

If for example 20% of the $BTC hashrate would disappear at the start of new difficulty retarget period, the impact of it would be more considerable. Also the fact that it's right before a weekend, when there are less transactions, should really limit the impact of it on Bitcoin.

Bitcoin ABC will lose the hash war no matter how much hash they steal from Roger and Jihan's pools. The miners backing SV are only exclusively mining BCH. They can wait however long until the temporary pro-ABC hash goes back, and then re-org the chain back to remove ABC blocks.
