Bitcoin Cash (BCH) cryptocurrency, which can be used on the Internet or converted to your local money.
We raised .0395 BCH ($20 CAD) for our meet-up, which was paid out to holders of the BCT (Bitcoin Cash Toronto) token using the bitcoin.com dividend calculator. 14 people received tokens this time around, some choosing to spend their tokens on raffle entries and Bitcoin swag, while others decided to HODL it for future dividend payments.
While handing out BCH and BCT tokens, I eventually hit a current bottle-neck in the Bitcoin Cash protocol, which limits the number of chained transactions to 25 per block. And given the current gaming of the BCH DAA (Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm) by large mining pools, a block had not be found in over 2 hours.
It was an awkward exchange between myself and a brand new attendee. Luckily he was very understanding and shared his SLP address with me so I could send him the funds once the block cleared.
This highlights the need for developers, miners, and interested businesses to co-operate in order to solve this tx-limit. What it really boils down to is the need to fund developers to work on this problem, which has become a point of contention in the BCH space.
In the meantime, if you plan on making many consecutive transactions, I encourage you to split your funds/tokens between two or more wallets a few hours before you need to spend them. This way you can increase the 25 tx limit to be 50, 75, etc, depending on how many wallets you create.
