51% initiative: Disrupting a $2 billion dollar cryptocurrency with less than $1.5 million investment
This cryptocurrency uses the same algorithm as Ethereum yet has a much lower total hash rate on the network.
Miners would get the same hash rate out of their machines regardless of which network they were mining on.
With $ 55 million dollars, you could effectively bankrupt the currency, netting nearly $ 1 billion in straight profit.
Executing a 51% attack on the BCH network will cost you just around 250 BTC, or $ 2 million, per day.
