    Bitcoin Stash

    The Bitcoin Stash team is comprised of a group of former Bitcoin Cash developers and community members that have become dismayed at the current outlook of BCH. We are sure that you are aware, but a multitude of factors show that there is disaster on the horizon for Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin ABC is proposing a contentious hard fork for no reason, Craig “Faketoshi” Wright is moving ahead to fork his own coin (Bitcoin SV) out of self interest, and Bitmain has revealed an extremely large BCH holding which they intend to rid themselves of in their now controversial IPO.

    As we see it, a price and hashrate collapse of the chain is inevitable. We have decided that we must take action now, to rid ourselves forever from the bad actors that plague this chain. We are planning to hard fork from Bitcoin Cash on November 15th. With the hard fork, we will not be increasing the maximum block size or following the tokenization/ICO platform roadmap of Bitcoin ABC. However, Bitcoin Stash will be implementing replay protection and continue using the SHA-256 mining algorithm. Additionally, Bitcoin Stash will incorporate merged mining with Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.

    With merged mining, Bitcoin Stash will solve the security issues that currently hamper Bitcoin Cash. As a minority chain, Bitcoin Cash is struggling to obtain substantial hash rate, and this has only been made worse following its recent decline in price. As of 9/25/18, the hash rate of Bitcoin Cash only totals about 6% of that of Bitcoin. The Bitcoin Cash hash rate has been continuously declining ever since a peak of roughly 15% of Bitcoin’s back in May of 2018, and we do not see this situation improving. Merged mining will lead to Bitcoin Stash obtaining a much needed higher hash rate since the chain will consist of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Bitcoin Stash miners.

    As a result, there will be three benefits that will be immediately realized. First, Bitcoin Stash will be less susceptible to a 51% attack which has recently plagued other chains such as Bitcoin Gold and Verge. Second, a single entity such as Jihan Wu’s Bitmain or Craig Wright’s CoinGeek will have a difficult time forcing any consensus breaking changes as they now must muster a much higher hash rate to do so. And thirdly, merged mining will also increase security on Bitcoin since miners will see greater profitability and will no longer have to choose between mining one chain and missing out on the other. Because of this, Bitcoin Stash will not only be a more secure and decentralized version of Bitcoin Cash, but it will also benefit the current miners of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.

    After the fork, Bitcoin Cash holders will be able to obtain an equivalent amount of our coins if they hold the private keys to their wallet.

    Merged Mining
    Bitcoin Stash is a merge mineable cryptocurrency that utilizes SHA256 for its mining algorithm. This means that it can be merge mined with other SHA256 coins like Bitcoin an Bitcoin Cash. Merge mining is a process where a miner is able to mine multiple cryptocurrencies at the same time. All that is required for a miner is to add 48 bytes of data to the coinbase of the parent block.

    Replay Protection
    Bitcoin Stash will be implementing replay protection to keep our transactions safe post-fork.

    Thanks for your interest in Stash!

    If your Bitcoin Cash is on an exchange platform, the distribution will be completely up to the individual exchange platform to decide. If you want to ensure you get Bitcoin Stash, send your Bitcoin Cash to a wallet which you can control before the hard fork happen. We can't control what exchange platforms will do with your Bitcoin Stash. It's up to their decision. [​IMG]

    ATTENTION


    We are looking for miners/mining pools to test our merged mining with Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.

    Only ten days left until release!
    We encourage BCH users to get their Stash wallets soon! :cool:
    Stash is a more stable option than SV and ABC forks.

    Bitcoin Stash has forked from Bitcoin Cash on block 556767!

    There may be some network problems and the nodes may have trouble syncing.
    We can thank Faketoshi/Satoshi’s Shotgun for this.
    We will work relentlessly to resolve these issues over the next several days!

    Officially Hard Forked!

    As of approximately 7:30 PM GMT on November 15th, 2018, we are pleased to announce that Bitcoin Stash has officially hard forked from Bitcoin Cash! With each passing day, as the true value of cryptocurrencies become better understood, the threat of 51% attacks on the Bitcoin Cash network becomes more imminent. Corporate and private interests, combined with greed and incompetence has corrupted the security of the chain. Bitcoin Stash will provide the solution through merged mining with both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. Additionally, Bitcoin Stash will offer replay protection to protect our chain against replay attacks.

    Bitcoin Cash has imploded into a hash war between Craig Faketoshi Wright’s Bitcoin SV and Bitmain’s Bitcoin ABC. Faketoshi plans on executing a 51% hash rate attack on the ABC chain, mining empty blocks and wreaking havoc. We are not certain when or how long this attack may occur, but we do believe it is imminent. Bitcoin Stash stands against the block size increases implemented by SV and the fraudulent activities of Wright. Additionally, we believe that the leadership of Bitmain, Roger Ver, and Bitcoin ABC can no longer be relied upon, as they were the ones who welcomed Faketoshi with open arms. While Bitcoin SV was plotting their takeover, the leaders of Bitcoin ABC were busy going to boat parties with Faketoshi and developing useless ideas like tokenization platforms and instant transactions.

    At this point, it seems like almost no one knows what will be the result of the Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC drama. No matter what happens with either of those, Bitcoin Stash will have a purpose since our merged mining will provide more incentive for miners and increase security and decentralization with a higher hash rate. Moreover, Bitcoin Stash should not encounter double-spending issues, as we will not be supporting 0-confirmation transactions. As a result, Bitcoin Stash is here to stay and will continue to be useful in the future with or without Bitcoin Cash.

    Bitcoin Cash holders prior to our fork will be able to obtain an equivalent amount of Bitcoin Stash if they hold the private keys to their BCH wallet. Future exchange support will also be a continual focus for our team moving forward. Please visit our website www.BStash.org to find further instructions on claiming or mining Bitcoin Stash. Our source code is available at https://github.com/bstash/bitcoinstash, with binaries to follow. Also, please join our Telegram, follow our Twitter (@BitcoinStash), and continue checking our website for updates! Feel free to reach out to any of our official accounts with any questions. Happy Fork Day!

    Don't count BStash out in the hashwar, we are at half of Bitcoin Cash ABC hash rate and growing.
    Stay tuned for exchange support and more important development announcements! ⚡

    Recently the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem experienced a protocol upgrade that split the network in Bitcoin cash ABC and Bitcoin cash SV. In this article, we shall review the insight of the bitcoin cash ABC features and its operations.

    UPDATE: v0.0rc3


    https://github.com/bstash/BitcoinStash/releases


    This release fixes a major bug where nodes would fail the initial block download.
    Update is required for your node to stay in sync when offline for a long length of time or when downloading the blockchain for the first time.
