First Results of Hard Fork — Self-proclaimed Nakamoto to Get White Flag?

On No­vem­ber 15 the hard fork took place in the Bit­coin Cash net­work ac­com­pa­nied by large-scale dis­putes and ‘hash war’. Two de­vel­op­ment teams that pro­moted in­com­pat­i­ble Bit­coin ABC and Bit­coin SV clients suc­cess­fully launched their new cryp­tocur­ren­cies.

Trad­ing plat­forms have al­ready ceased to sup­port BCH, now users can only work with coins that ap­peared as a re­sult of the up­date. Prob­a­bly, now the speed of re­cov­ery of the fallen cryp­tocur­rency mar­ket will de­pend on the vic­tory of ABC or SV (whichever chain of blocks is longer). So far, all the ad­van­tages have been on the side of Bit­coin ABC. At the mo­ment, ABC has man­aged to cre­ate a longer chain after the fork of Bit­coin Cash and sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease the hashrate of its net­work.

The U.S. Se­cu­ri­ties and Ex­change Com­mis­sion (SEC) has ini­ti­ated an audit of the crypto-credit plat­form Salt Lend­ing Hold­ings Inc., be­cause of the $50 mil­lion at­tracted by it through the ICO in 2017, as re­ported by the WSJ. In par­tic­u­lar, the reg­u­la­tor is in­ter­ested in the con­nec­tion of the plat­form with the head of the crypto ex­change ShapeShift Erik Voorhees.

Sources fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion re­port that the plat­form re­ceived reg­u­la­tor’s agenda back in Feb­ru­ary.
