BCHN FAQ on November 2020 Bitcoin Cash network upgrade
No, we do not support a "no upgrade" for November as we see the correction of the current DAA's problems as critical for the survival of Bitcoin Cash. The ASERT proposal has been evaluated against a wide range of contenders, including the recently announced Grasberg proposal, and has demonstrably outperformed them.
The intent of "Automatic Replay Protection" is to avoid un-upgraded nodes causing problems after a planned upgrade. It causes un-upgraded nodes to fork themselves off to a new network at the time of an upgrade.
BCHN has a better way to accomplish the same intent by first ensuring that un-upgraded nodes notify the operator ahead of time, and second simply halting the un-upgraded node at the upgrade. Notification and shutdown are more actionable and save the operator the wasted time and money of mining or accidentally transacting on an empty chain.
No. Despite being in contact with pools, exchanges and many other businesses that use and build on Bitcoin Cash, no-one has ever asked BCHN for this feature.
Moreover, the implications (longer block times & reduced mining reward) as recently considered by the ecosystem have shown strong and wide opposition to such a feature which negatively affects many users and would harm the reputation of the network.
