  1. Career Use

    If you want to buy Bitcoin try coinbase they are the easiest way to get started. That's what I used in the beginning.

    This is a joke, people still can’t see this is a problem…… 20 years later, people will laughs at how ridiculous it is that a group of people can just start some sort of crypto currency and it is legal………. people in future will be amazed how little our government have done to stop it . Will be on history books.

    Actually , the true original Bitcoin is not called bitcoin, the current bitcoin is a fork of what is now called bitcoin core, bitcoin core is the original bitcoin

    Anyone can fork bitcoin. It literally forks all the time but nobody uses them because they are big gaye most of the time.

  7. Adhik Joshi

    People don't use other forked coins, so its useless. So don't worry

    I think the situation is pretty forked up!

    BitcoinCash (BCH or BCC) was not only an attempted cash grab but it was an attempt to overthrow the REAL Bitcoin, sometimes referred to as Bitcoin Core by BCH community. The real problem lies in the centralization of the ASIC mining rigs required to profitably mine BTC. There is only one main company, coincidentally called Bitmain, that produces the majority of these specialized computer rigs and therefore there is a bottleneck on the supply. The total combined hashing power from all of these computers essentially had no competition prior to the BCH fork August 1st 2017- after that point the Bitcoin miners began switching over to mine BitcoinCash at times when it became more profitable (due to variable difficulty of BCH). This created a competition for the miners and their hashing power which caused the price and speed of transactions on the Bitcoin network to have issues.

    Each successive fork seemed to be worth less and less. Some forks turned out to be a sham and others were laden with scams! Cryptocurrency is still in its infantile stages where we will have to learn how to crawl before we can walk or run. There will be many growing pains along the way including several more price booms and crashes.

    The currency only has value as long as people use it if no one uses it then it has no value same thing with the US dollar that's probably why the government does not want us to use Bitcoin

  11. XelPixels

    Saying 'bitcoin just keeps forking' would suggest someone is closing in on having 50%+ mining ability.
    This may be a split to a new currency but dont use the word fork.
