Bitcoin Cash hard fork coming Nov 15, 2020 - Three tips for success

The devs for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) have scheduled a hard fork for the cryptocurrency on November 15, 2020. Because this platform provides 100% of its gratuities in BCH, the upcoming change will impact every user.

Why is this happening?

One dissenting group of devs, referred to as Bitcoin Cash ABC, want to create a separate pool of funds using 8% of each block reward that is mined. The idea is that this would be automatically set aside to help fund future improvements to the Bitcoin Cash project. The rest of the group, known as Bitcoin Cash Node (supported by Roger Ver notably), do not agree with this vision as evidenced by his recent article.

Three tips for success

The next two weeks will be tumultuous for anyone who is invested in BCH. Here are three tips on how to navigate the upcoming change successfully.

Tip #1 - Beware of BCH price volatility in the near future

Historically, prices for many cryptocurrencies become increasingly volatile in the weeks leading up to a hard fork. This is due to the uncertainty surrounding the change. It's possible that the newly forked coin does not survive!

Unless you are a seasoned crypto investor, I suggest you stay on the sidelines until things stabilize.

Tip #2 - HODL your BCH

If the hard fork is successful, all customers who owned BCH before the fork would be eligible to receive the newly forked coins on a 1:1 basis to match the value of your pre-forked BCH.

For example, if you owned 0.359 BCH before the fork, you would be eligible to receive 0.359 of the new coin after the fork.

The more BCH you own before the fork, the more of the new coins you may receive. Try not to spend or exchange your BCH until after November 15!

Tip #3 - Find out which wallets will support the new coin

If you wish to collect your new coins after a successful fork, you will need to deposit them into a wallet that supports the new forked coins. It's notable that the Trezor cold storage wallet will not support the new coins.

However, Binance has confirmed they would. This means that you would automatically collect the new coins by transferring your BCH funds into your Binance account.

One other advantage of depositing your BCH into Binance is that you would be eligible to earn interest on your deposit. Binance currently offers a Flexible Savings account that pays 0.61% Annual Percent Yield (APY). You are able to withdraw your funds at any time.

the latest news i found is that Binance may not support the new coin either, and it may not survive at all.

"In a Nov. 3 announcement addressing the fork, leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance announced that if current signaling trends continue, “Binance will treat the BCHN chain as the future BCH chain.”

Thanks for visiting and for sharing your thoughts!

i'm a bit skeptical the ABC coin will survive for long. it doesn't appear to have much support from the mining community, and if miners won't support it, it's vulnerable to a 51% attack.

just be careful, and only invest what you can afford to lose.

have you read my articles about The Sandbox? There may be more opportunities on that platform.

If I keep my BCH in the wallet I got from this website when I signed up, will I receive the ABC coins?

In other words: Is some action required or is it enough to do nothing? 😅

this whole issue may be moot...the new coin is not receiving much support.

That's the issue that i didn't have time to discuss with this article.

the RC devs have made no mention about which coin they will support on this platform. my understanding is that if you do nothing, your pre-fork coins will become ABC coins. this can be problematic because it appears that most of the BCH community supports BCHN, and the ABC coins may fail post-fork.

Scenario 1: BCH ABC succeeds, but RC supports BCHN - Do nothing is safe, but you will need to move your BCH to a different wallet that supports the hard fork in order to receive the new coins.

Scenario 2: BCH ABC succeeds, and RC supports both BCH ABC and BCHN - do nothing is safe, and new coins should appear in the RC wallet.

Scenario 3: BCH ABC fails - do nothing is safe, since the code would most likely be reverted to a point in time pre-fork.

i wouldn't be worried. BCH will be volatile for a while, but it will eventually stabilize. if you want my honest opinion though, i feel other cryptocurrencies have a better long term future over BCH.

i'm conservative regarding my crypto investments...my favorite is BTC.

I did. And I finish the verification. I think the linking of the bank is the problem and it won't let me get through PayPal as an option for the withdrawal only for the bank. I honestly don't want the bank to know about my crypto. Heard of that account they close.

None 😂. ABC will need to create a new one. Just hold on to your bitcoin Cash, wait for the new wallet (or for the announcement of one that will support it), import your seed there, and you have the 1:1 forked coins. Then send it to another compatible address for security reasons. You're done.

@Monolith appears to be very confident with that prediction of Nov 13th, along with the recovery of BCH price. I would agree that current percentage of the price drop may not be merited due to uncertainty.

a better question is whether you should be investing in BCH at all. instead of aiming to get a free coin, would it be better to invest in another cryptocurrency or token instead of BCH for long term growth/value?

several notable individuals have recently cautioned against BCH (Max Keiser), or completely withdrawn their support of BCH (Tim Draper). it's notable that BCH value compared against BTC continues to drop, and is probably at an all-time low now (1 BCH = 0.016 BTC).

but given where you are in your life, even if this is a missed opportunity, there will be plenty of others that will come along. Ultimately, I would advise caution, and only invest what you can afford to lose.

Wait for the 13th. Volatility will be at it's best that day. Then buy the BCH you want, and hold. You have earned yourself a free Airdrop. I see some selling their BCH like crazy so undoubtedly some affectation is to be expected. Anyway the price should go up after, so don't be extremely concerned.
