A Chronicle of the (First) Bitcoin Hard Fork/Split of 2017: Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash
Bitcoin just split in two: Bitcoin, or BTC, and Bitcoin Cash, or BCH. Over the past couple of weeks I have vlogged all of the news about this event starting from when UASF was still plausible, through the BIP 91 lock in, through the replay protection mechanisms in Bitcoin Cash, and ultimately through the fork itself.
For the historical record, here are my videos, as promised :)
Note that there is still a strong probability of a second hard fork occurring in November: segwit2x. That is when the 2x part of segwit2x will be attempted. Thus, the Bitcoin Cash hard fork is the "first" hard fork. We will have to wait to see what happens leading up to the second attempted hard fork :)
