BTCfork releases HFP0: an early prototype of a Bitcoin hard fork

Wed Sep 21, 2016 5:20 pm

The BTCfork organization today released source code for hardfork_prototype_0 (HFP0), an early prototype of a Bitcoin hard fork (spin-off) client.

Reddit announcement thread:
https://ww.reddit.com/r/btcfork/comment ... hard_fork/

Main features of the prototype include:
  • fixed block height trigger
  • an implementation of BitPay's adaptive block size algorithm which adjusts the block size cap in the range 2MB-4MB
  • optional change of POW (modified scrypt, CPU minable and hopefully ASIC-resistant)
  • per-block difficulty adjustment using MIDAS (Multi Interval Difficulty Adjustment System)
  • Xtreme Thinblocks from Bitcoin Unlimited
BTCfork reminds that this is a prototype and should not be used to put real money (i.e. Bitcoins) at risk.
Development of a production-ready Minimum Viable Fork client will continue.

Excellent write-up, well done!!!!!!!!! It is amazing to see people such as yourself place so much of your time into projects like this.

A paragraph in your post reads:
and unknown criminal elements employing 'dirty tricks' against the network infrastructure of such forks (e.g. denial-of-service attacks against their nodes)
I understand your anger and frustration. My nodes too have been attacked. Unsuccessful sabotage against my nodes, clients nodes and people I speak to is on a near daily basis.

Please keep up the great work, thank you, it means a lot to me and thousands of other people, I can assure you of that!

Is this project still alive?
