As it has been announced by the research division of crypto trading platform BitMEX, the company plans to create its own Bitcoin software client.
The new proposal talks about the effective use of sidechains while making it easy for Bitcoin developers to add new features to the Bitcoin network.
The new features mainly focus on improving Bitcoin Core’s default wallet, its integration with hardware wallets, and improving the way private keys are stored.
The Full-SegWit support to the Core Bitcoin software has been officially confirmed by core developer Peter Todd.
Throughout last week, during the strong rally of bitcoin, Bitconnect Coin (BCC) gained upward momentum, surpassing the $100 mark for the first time in history and establishing a new all-time high at $115.
Segregated Witness has been added to the bitcoin core code on October 27th, offering a range of advantages like malleability fix and an effective block size limit increase.
The next version 0.13.0 of the bitcoin core is set to be released in the upcoming weeks, while Bitcoin.org warned that it might be targeted by government hackers.
We are pleased to announce the launch of C-bit; An exact clone of Bitcoin Core .12 with a 2-Meg block-size already built into the source code. C-bit negates the need for a Bitcoin Core Hard Fork.
Once the decision of the Roundtable discussion appeared, bitcoin price shot up.
