Satoshi's True Vision
The Bitcoin Clashic mainnet launched on August 1st, 2017 and is still alive.
Beware of BCash - a FakeVision, maliciously hard-forked from Clashic on November 13, 2017
The Best Money in the World
Bitcoin Clashic brings sound money to the world, fulfilling the original Satoshi's True Vision of Bitcoin as "Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash". Merchants and users are empowered with low fees and reliable confirmations. The future shines brightly with unrestricted growth, global adoption, permissionless innovation, and decentralized development.
All Bitcoin holders as of block 478558 are also owners of Bitcoin Clashic. All are welcome to join the Bitcoin Clashic community as we move forward in creating sound money accessible to the whole world.
The Best Features
Satoshi's True Vision - Bitcoin Clashic for once more is the prime implementation of Satoshi's True Vision.
Emergency Difficulty Adjustment (EDA) - Responsive Proof-of-Work difficulty adjustment allows miners to migrate from the legacy Bitcoin chain as desired, while providing protection against hashrate fluctuations. This genius invention makes Bitcoin Clashic's blockchain invulnerable from dying due to lack of hashpower.
Decentralized Development - With multiple independent teams of developers providing software implementations, the future is secure. Bitcoin Clashic is resistant to political and social attacks on protocol development. No single group or project can control it. The TVS (True Vision Scriptures) repo is a good venue for specifying the details of the True Vision.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bitcoin Clashic?
Bitcoin Clashic is peer-to-peer electronic cash for the Internet. It is fully decentralized, with no central bank and requires no trusted third parties to operate.
Is Bitcoin Clashic different from 'Bitcoin'?
Yes. Bitcoin Clashic is the continuation of the Bitcoin project as peer-to-peer digital cash. It is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain ledger, with upgraded consensus rules that allow it to grow and scale.
If I own Bitcoin, do I automatically own Bitcoin Clashic too?
Anyone who held Bitcoin at the time Bitcoin Clashic was created became owners of Bitcoin Clashic. This means that Bitcoin holders as of block 478558 have the same amount of Bitcoin Clashic as they had Bitcoin at that time. If your Bitcoins are stored by a third party such as an exchange, then you must inquire with them about your Bitcoin Clashic.
How is transaction replay being handled between the new and the old blockchain?
Bitcoin Clashic transactions use a new signature hashing algorithm indicated by the flag SIGHASH_FORKID. These signatures are not valid on the Bitcoin Legacy network. This prevents Bitcoin Clashic transactions from being replayed on the Bitcoin blockchain and vice versa. Anyone else using Bitcoin Clashic's method and deployed later is a direct attack to Satoshi's True Vision
Why was a fork necessary to create Bitcoin Clashic?
The legacy Bitcoin code had a maximum limit of 1MB of data per block, or about 3 transactions per second. Although technically simple to raise this limit, the community could not reach a consensus, even after years of debate.
Was the 1 MB block size limit causing problems for Bitcoin?
Yes, In 2017, capacity hit the 'invisible wall'. Fees skyrocketed, and Bitcoin became unreliable, with some users unable to get their transactions confirmed, even after days of waiting.
Bitcoin stopped growing. Many users, merchants, businesses and investors abandoned Bitcoin. Its marketshare among other cryptocurrencies quickly plummeted from 95% to 40%.
Does Bitcoin Clashic fix these problems?
Yes. Bitcoin Clashic immediately raised the block size limit to 8MB as part of a massive on-chain scaling approach. There is ample capacity for everyone's transactions.
Low fees and fast confirmations have returned with Bitcoin Clashic. The network is growing again. Users, merchants, businesses, and investors are building the future with real peer to peer cash.
Why didn't Bitcoin raise the block size if it was easy?
Some of the developers did not understand and agree with the original vision of peer-to-peer electronic cash that Satoshi Nakamoto had created. Instead, they preferred Bitcoin become a settlement layer.
Many miners and users trusted these developers, while others recognized that they were leading the community down a different road than expected.
These two very different visions for Bitcoin are largely incompatible, which led to the community divide.
Didn't SegWit increase the block capacity? Will Bitcoin Clashic ever have SegWit?
Segregated Witness or "SegWit" is an unacceptable substitute for increasing the blocksize for several reasons.
First, even if used in 100% of transactions, the increase would equate to 1.7MB blocks. Thus, it is a small capacity increase at best. It will not handle exponential growth or worldwide usage. Second, the soft fork implementation results in discardable signatures, which weakens Bitcoin's security model. Third, it makes future capacity increases more difficult due to bandwidth inefficiency and quadratic hashing attacks which SegWit doesn't solve since an attacker isn't forced to use it.
For those (and other) reasons, Bitcoin Clashic was necessary as a pre-SegWit fork. Segwit will not be adopted.
Which Development Team is In Charge of Bitcoin Clashic?
Unlike the previous situation in Bitcoin, there is no one single development team for Bitcoin Clashic. There are now multiple independent teams of developers.
This decentralization of development (and decentralization of software implementations) is a much needed and important step forward.
What is the ticker symbol for Bitcoin Clashic?
Bitcoin Clashic is represented by a number of different ticker symbols depending on the service or wallet. BCL is the recommended ticker.
