It was a mere 81 days ago that the Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork occurred, and here we are again, awaiting the coming of the Bitcoin Gold Hard Fork. Of course, there is yet one more planned Hard Fork coming in late November, with the Segwit2 Implementation, as well.
This may sound difficult to predict or too far from reality. But it may become true in 2018. Lot of people believe that 2017 was a year in which Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies exploded. This year Bitcoin price arrived almost at $6000 dollars and its market capitalization is almost at $100 billion dollars.
The former principal and macro fund manager at FIG (Fortress Investment Group), Mike Novogratz, has commented that Jamie Dimon is a ‘rent-taker’ and will lose the fight against Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
Nikolay Nikiforov, Russian Minister of Communication and Mass Media, informed to the local newspaper AIF that Putin has ordered the issue of the country’s own cryptocurrency. The CryptoRuble.
Bitcoin Gold will be a new cryptocurrency that will split from Bitcoin blockchain at block 491,407 the 25th October 2017. This new cryptocurrency will start to be traded on November the 1st on the exchanges that would support it.
In 8 days and 21 hours, Bitcoin Gold fork will happen in block 491407. It means that a new Bitcoin will appear in the market, named BitcoinGold (BTG). If Bitcoin is going to split, why is Bitcoin price being traded at $5750? Why have we seen Bitcoin touching new price records just some days ago?
