Bitcoin Cash is a hard fork of Bitcoin with a protocol upgrade to fix on-chain capacity. Bitcoin Cash intends to be a Bitcoin without Segregated Witness (SegWit) as soft fork, where upgrades of the protocol are done mainly through hard forks and without changing the original economic rules of the Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is released on 1st August 2017 as an upgraded version of the original Bitcoin Core software. The main upgrade is the increase in the block size limit from 1MB to 8MB. This effectively allows miners on the BCH chain to process up to 8 times more payments per second in comparison to Bitcoin. This makes for faster, cheaper transactions and a much smoother user experience. Why was Bitcoin Cash Created? The main objective of Bitcoin Cash is to to bring back the essential qualities of money inherent in the original Bitcoin software. Over the years, these qualities were filtered out of Bitcoin Core and progress was stifled by various people, organizations, and companies involved in Bitcoin protocol development. The result is that Bitcoin Core is currently unusable as money due to increasingly high fees per transactions and transfer times taking hours to complete. This is all because of the 1MB limitation of Bitcoin Core’s block size, causing it unable to accommodate to large number of transactions. Essentially Bitcoin Cash is a community-activated upgrade (otherwise known as a hard fork) of Bitcoin that increased the block size to 8MB, solving the scaling issues that plague Bitcoin Core today.

GoNetwork is creating a highly scalable, low cost mobile first network infrastructure for Ethereum. The prime objective is to build a mobile first network for Ethereum ERC20 tokens that’s off chain. It is a fast, cheap and low latency infrastructure. A major concern with blockchain technology centers on speed and high cost of transactions. Transactions on blockchains like bitcoin are expensive and slow. With growing usage, Ethereum will fare no differently over time. GoNetworks solution solves this problem by allowing off-chain transactions. MASSIVE POTENTIAL GoNetwork is designed for the trillion dollar mobile economy and commerce market. GONETWORK MAKES ETHEREUM FAST State channels amortize the cost of transactions based on the number of off-chain transactions completed off-chain. Thus, in typical high-frequency workflows, the cost of transactions will be several orders of magnitude lower than running the transactions on Ethereum directly.
