What’s Next for Bitcoin Cash ?
To recap, bitcoin cash originally split from bitcoin earlier this summer in an attempt to experiment with a different long-term technical vision for the technology.
When bitcoin cash created a new blockchain from bitcoin’s transaction history, it took much of the old code along with it, including the address format that users use to send money.
The problem with that is, if users aren’t paying attention, they can send bitcoin cash to their bitcoin addresses, or vice versa.
And Amaury Sechet, lead developer of Bitcoin ABC (a bitcoin cash software implementation), believes achieving this should be the project’s next big step.
Either way, while an address format might seem like a small change, it could be a sign of further differentiation between bitcoin and bitcoin cash moving forward.
