block 5, 478562

The difference in mine time between the first 4 blocks is substantially different, as is the block occupied amount (almost 2mb in the number 2, and less than 100Kb in the following), as well as the BIP 9 signaling. Accompanies in some Segwit blocks, but not at all….

17:00 GMT – August 1

More than 2 hours after the supposed fork, Bitcoin CASH (BCC) is unable to calculate a new block with the difficulty of the inherited network.

15:50 GMT – August 1

Reached block 478558, Bitcoin’s main chain continues to mine blocks (now for 478562), while Bitcoin CASH does not confirm any new block. No confirmed HARDFORK yet

15:00 GMT – August 1

First impressions of HF:

Bitcoin loses value and raise the altscoins as ETH
BCC price 400$
DDOS attack to Bittrex and Kraken.

14:25 GMT – August 1

The fork block for Bitcoin CASH has been activated and created. 6 orphan blocks are needed to confirm that there are two different block chains.

Today, August 1, is a very special date for the Bitcoin world. Announced publicly, today at approximately 14:20 GMT the block chain will be divided into two, Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin CASH (BCC).

We will try from bitcoiner.today to track in real time what happens, reviewing in turn, as it has reached this point.
