Bitcoin Cash Upgrade: Transactions Are Immutable After 10 Confirmations

Published

on

The new version of Bitcoin Cash ABC software has some incredible enhancements that we are going to discuss in today’s altcoin news. Some of the upgrades are meant to prevent chain reorganizations from happening.

This idea comes as a response to the attacks that the network has gone through after the hard fork that happened this month but also to prevent similar situations from happening again.

According to the official announcement, some of the new code will put a boundary on the effect that a chain reorganization can have on an individual client.

In the official announcement, it is written that though on different media you can see that very few miners are constantly threatening the Bitcoin Cash network by reorganizing the chain and that many see this as a fundamental threat to functionality.

The method that was used in the process of reorganizing was by changing the parameters under which the Bitcoin ABC standardized clients consider reorganizations. According to that parameters, the clients must have ‘’enough work piled up’’.

With some other improvements in this version, it will likely be more difficult to work with this chain that has another kind of a transaction record because the behavior of the clients that are usually default will no longer support such chains.

This is why with this new upgrade; users will know that transactions are immutable after 10 confirmations and that this is a protection element that will keep the reorganization from impacting users or their businesses.

However, this doesn’t mean that reorganizations will never be going to happen again. This just means that there are a lot of parameters that the clients will first consider when such reorganization happens.

Altcoin News

Crypto Market Adds $8 Billion But Litecoin Is Struggling To Gain Momentum

According to the latest price movements on the crypto market that we take a closer look into today’s altcoin news, the investors could see a green wave around the market. The crypto market increased along with Bitcoin increasing by 4.75% reaching the $3,800 price point. Despite the fact that almost all cryptocurrencies showed massive gains, Litecoin seems to be struggling to gain momentum despite the fact that is up by 7.23% over the past 24 hours. The altcoin is up only by 3% for the week. Most of the analysts think that Litecoin is struggling because the cryptocurrency did a great job outperforming its competitors last week after it traded between $40-$50. Currently, Litecoin is trading at $48 and if this trend continues, the altcoin is expected to reach $50 and remain on that position for quite a while. It seems weird that despite the partnership with Beam as previously reported, the price isn’t maintaining momentum. Also, as previously reported, the hash rate of Litecoin increased and last time Litecoin’s hash rate was close to this new high was in April 2018 when Litecoin’s price increased up to $120. The value of this altcoin dropped quite a lot which caused miners to drop out of the mining activities and start opting for more profitable coins. Litecoin lost its position as the fourth largest cryptocurrency after it was surpassed by EOS. EOS increased massively, by more than 13.80% and is the best gainer among the top ten cryptocurrencies. The entire crypto market is up by 6.2% and according to analysts, the market is expected to increase up by 10%.

Crypto Market Adds $10 Billion, Currently With $134bn. In Circulation

Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Tron (TRX) and Stellar (XLM) were the highest earners in the new surge that led the cryptocurrency market to add new $10 billion - coming closer to the $135 billion gap. In the daily news of our DC Forecasts crypto news site, this surge came with bullish moves in Bitcoin and Ethereum as well, which dominated the market. However, in this piece, we are focusing on the altcoin traction which started with a solid upward move by Bitcoin Cash (BCH) which broke the $130 resistance against the US Dollar. The BCH/USD pair gained traction and surpassed the $140 and $145 resistance levels, shooting up by about 15% and testing the $150 resistance level on the upside. Litecoin (LTC) also pushed high and broke the $45 resistance area, trading up by around 7% and breaking the $47 resistance as of recently. It seems like with the positive price action recently, the chances for LTC are of more upsides above the $48 and $50 resistance levels. Tron's price, on the other hand, formed a support base near the $0.0240 level. TRX later started a correction and moved above the $0.0250 resistance, opening the doors for a decent recovery. Looking at the total market cap, buyers gained control above the $130 billion resistance levels where the high is right now set at $136-7 billion. However, the possibility of dips is still present.

EOS Skyrockets By 30% In 24 Hours: How Far Can This Altcoin Go?

The Enterprise Operating System, known as the cryptocurrency EOS, is in the latest crypto news because of its huge increase which made the coin push more than double compared to the growth of Bitcoin in only a few days. The base token EOS had been pushing the $3 mark while Bitcoin was trading in the $4,600 range. However, when BTC broke upwards and went above $3,750, EOS went along with it and followed the rise. As the one-day charts show, EOS is far above the $3 mark and is resting comfortably at $3.62 at press time, demonstrating an even higher surge than the one the altcoin did yesterday. When it comes to the total markets, EOS gained more than 35% in the 5-day period, increasing its price by more than a third. The total market cap of EOS is still a net loss from the amount raised for its ICO ($4 billion). The market cap right now is coming closer to the ICO amount and sits at $3.28 billion. EOS doesn't have far to go in this manner - all it needs is another $1 rise and it is even with the ICO prices. What's interesting is that of all the smart contract platforms, EOS has some of the highest usages. For all of this, it is hard not to note that EOS is taking some time to pick up real steam when it comes to widespread notoriety.

Ethereum Price Increases By 13% Overnight, Is The Market In For Recovery?

Over the past 24 hours, the price of Ethereum has increased up to $141 which is a 13 percent increase against the US dollar according to the altcoin news and analysis we have for today. Many of the analysts see a short-term recovery in the near future as the market gains momentum. The increase in price shows a pretty gloomy performance for some of the coins such as EOS, Bitcoin Cash, Binance Coin, and Ethereum and the sentiment of the market is overall gloomy as well. Before the crypto market rally, a popular crypto trader named ‘’Mayne’’ said that the investors cannot still be bear-biased based on the last performance of the market. He said:
 “We’ve had some bullish moves on ETH, BTC, and altcoins over the last 2 weeks. Is the bear market over? Maybe, the fact of the matter is we are going up. Traders must see PA for what it is and can change bias quickly. If you have been stuck with a bearish lense you are missing out.’’
Over the past few months, Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies show similar movements. BTC showed weeks of stability but it later plunged by 10 percent. However, the current stability is not a guarantee for improved future performance. The crypto market shows a period of stability for the past couple of weeks. Ethereum made gains during today’s trading session. After the 12 percent surge in the price of ETH, crypto trader DonAlt said:
 “Well, this is a proper moon. Not a big liquid spike but rather a nice controlled walk up. Didn’t expect quite this much action into the weekend but I’m not complaining. ETH as the top gainer on BitMEX. Right at resistance here – will be interesting if it can break through or not.”
