All set for the November hard fork of Bitcoin Cash [BCH], the development team at Bitcoin Unlimited has started implementing the ruleset changes of Bitcoin ABC. Amongst these preparations, the developers also published BU version 1.5.0 last Sunday. Furthermore, the hard fork is scheduled to take place on 15th November.

This version is believed to differ and contain many changes from the previous BU version released by the team. More so, the website run by BCH proponent Roger Ver also stated that the version is compatible with all the hard fork changes previously taken place on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.

However, the team has also informed the community that it is still waiting for support from Bitcoin SV. On Twitter, Bitcoin Unlimited posted regarding the update and wrote:

“Bitcoin Unlimited’s #BitcoinCash version 1.5.0.0 is now available. Compatible with http://Bitcoincash.org spec, ergo with ABC 0.18.x for the 15 Nov 2018 general upgrade. “

In this version, the main changes made by the BU development team are the addition of configuration parameters to allow miners to specify their BIB135 votes, admission of multithreaded transaction admission to the mempool, parallelization of message processing, improvements to the Request Manager and more.



Through BIB135, the team wants the miners to be able to start voting on the features that are to be added in the BCH hard fork on 15th November. For the miners who do not support the Bitcoin Cash hard fork at all can also vote for the features they want in the protocol, stated Andrew Stone, the lead developer at Bitcoin Unlimited.

About the BIB135 voting system, Stone also mentioned that the features that are voted for will automatically be implemented. In his words:

“BIP135 voting does enable the features automatically, but after a 3-month 75% or greater “yes” and a 3-month “grace” (time to implement the feature) period — So plenty of time”

Proponents in the cryptocurrency space have made it a point to push for the mainstream adoption of digital assets. One such proponent is Bitcoin.com’s Chief Executive Officer Roger Ver. In a recent podcast, Ver touched upon the reasons why Bitcoin Cash [BCH] was better than the current version of Bitcoin [BTC], while at the same time elucidated on the obstacles in the industry.

The BCH bull stated that,

“The key to being an investor is to invest in a good product before anyone else and that is what I did with Bitcoin all those years back. I got into Bitcoin because I knew that it would be useful in the future while at the same time bringing financial freedom to the entire world. Those are the same features that Bitcoin Cash has right now and many are saying that BCash is a scam and all that, to them I say that name calling is not an argument.”

Ver further spoke about the government clamp on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, claiming that the lockdown that regulatory bodies have over user’s money is actually a ‘hindrance to our progress as a species.’



According to Roger Ver, Bitcoin is a tool to separate the control of money from the state. He was also asked whether anyone could stop Bitcoin and its effects, to which Ver had his own suggestions. He said that if anyone wanted to hinder the world’s largest cryptocurrency, then the best way is to make it too expensive or too complicated to use. In his words,

“Becoming too expensive or too complicated to use is what has happened to the current version of BTC and is something that BCash is trying to move far from. I want to say kudos to the people who hijacked the original BTC product and the thing is a vast majority of the people do not realize what actually happened.”

Ver was in the news recently after he attacked the BTC camp, stating that it is toxic and full of censorship, trolling behaviour.
