The different developer teams of Bitcoin Cash met in London. The two most important, ABC and Unlimited, presented their roadmap for the mid-term future. In the roadmap, you find exciting, but sometimes daring goals.
Seven teams of developers came together in London, to talk about the future of Bitcoin Cash; Bitcoin ABC, Bitcrust, Bitprim, Bitcoin Unlimited, ElectrumX, nChain, and Parity. This appears to be more than it really is, the teams are very small, but it illustrates aspiration of Bitcoin Cash to be a project of different teams.
“We were very excited by the vision shared by all attendees for Bitcoin Cash to massively scale to become a fast, low-fee, global peer-to-peer electronic cash system!”, Bitcoin Unlimited reported on its website.
The leading team of Bitcoin Cash is without Bitcoin ABC, as was demonstrated with the last protocol changes, which have all been implemented and enforced by Bitcoin ABC. In that respect, the roadmap ABC announced should be the most important document for the future of Bitcoin Cash.
First, Bitcoin ABC commits to the same vision for Bitcoin Cash as Unlimited:
“Our top priority for Bitcoin Cash is to keep improving it as a great form of money. We want to make it more reliable, more scalable, with low fees and ready for rapid growth. It should ‘just work,’ without complications or hassles. It should be ready for global adoption by mainstream users, and provide a solid foundation that businesses can rely on.”
To get there, ABC plans to do two hard forks in 2018, they call them “protocol upgrades;” on May 15 and November 15. The code for the forks is scheduled to be ready three months in advance…
