Representatives of the project note that the new version of the software implements protection against the attack of reorganization and ensures the irreversibility of transactions, which makes the work of users and companies safe and unhindered.
Recall the other day the Bitcoin SV Blockchain competing with ABC was attacked by reorganization. Such an attack allows to delay or reverse transactions. It's not yet known whether the network was deliberately attacked or if a failure occurred by accident.
Some representatives of the community suggested that the attack was undertaken to delay the process of opening deposits on the exchanges and possible massive sales.
