The SLP Foundation sees a decentralized node landscape as crucial for the stability and longevity of Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and by extension the SLP token ecosystem.
Our goal is to make Bitcoin Cash the best token ecosystem to build on top of. A split does not align with this mission.
SLP Foundation and SLP entities maintaining the infrastructure and ecosystem issue this joint statement:
We do not consider a protocol that redirects coinbase rewards to be Bitcoin Cash (BCH), especially when such a rule was announced unilaterally.
This action by Bitcoin ABC was carried out without prior discussion with the wider BCH ecosystem, and is a sudden deviation from every other Bitcoin Cash node implementation. Therefore by forking economic changes on its own volition, ABC is also no longer a project that aligns with Bitcoin Cash's values and principles.
We will support SLP infrastructure development on Bitcoin Cash, not on a fork of Bitcoin Cash by ABC.
We will continue our work with collaborating with the large array of BCH node softwares that have chosen to collaborate rather than fork.
Put simply, in our view, all of SLP's critical infrastructure and partners should carry on uninterrupted supporting BCH.
