A fork in the world of bitcoin is not a new concept. In fact, investors have grown used to forks now, and some are even investing in these forks. With so much anticipation among investors and the fact that these forks are being greeted well by the users, one cannot ignore the impact of bitcoin forks on the world of cryptocurrency in general and bitcoin in specific.
After the success of Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold, all the users and investors want to know about the upcoming forks from the bitcoin blockchain. Considering the thirst for information in this regard, we have brought together information pertaining to the forks that you can expect in the near future.
Bitcoin Cash Plus
Expected to be released in the market on 2nd January 2018, Bitcoin Cash Plus promises a lot of innovation and investment opportunity for the users. The minds behind bitcoin cash plus call this fork as the fulfillment of the promise made by bitcoin as ‘Peer to Peer Electronic Cash’.
Both merchants and investors are offered reliable confirmations along with low fees. Since it is being created on the same blockchain, everyone owning one bitcoin currently will also be the owner of one bitcoin cash plus once the currency is released on January 22. Out of all features being introduced, the most noticeable feature is the introduction of new and enhanced transaction signatures.
Just like all other bitcoin forks, Super Bitcoin also envisions to give 1 super BTC to every user holding a BTC. Moreover, the fork is expected to happen on the 17th of December 2017 and has been handpicked to create much enthusiasm within the masses.
This fork comes with the tagline ‘Make Bitcoin Great Again’, so you can assume what they expect to give to the masses. The blockchain setup and the transaction speed are said to be according to user preferences. The makers of the fork mentioned that they have chosen all basic features according to the wishes of the users, which is why, once the implementation of Super Bitcoin happens, bitcoin will be great again.
Since all new forks are inspired by the success of bitcoin gold and bitcoin cash, most of the names for the upcoming forks are a replication of their names. Bitcoin Silver is another fork in the bitcoin blockchain that is expected to take place during the end of December this year. The fork will split off from the original blockchain, which is why all current users would benefit from one BTSI each once the fork is made. Although it is clear that Bitcoin Silver wishes to encompass the success that was achieved by forks before it, the makers have said that their chief motive is to make bitcoin decentralized again.
