Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is scheduled to undergo a much publicized hard fork today at around 4:40PM UTC (11:40AM EST). Unlike past BCH hard forks, the community is faced with two competing proposals from Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV which could result in the creation of two different blockchains with different tokens. For the last week, Poloniex offered customers the opportunity to trade both Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV ahead of the BCH hard fork, empowering the community to demonstrate their support through trading activity.
Our Circle Research team has prepared a comprehensive Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork Report that offers an in-depth examination of both proposals and the potential market impact of the hard fork. Inside, you will find in-depth risk analysis, insights from pre-fork trading data and a breakdown of where leading exchanges and mining pools stand.
