Bitcoin Cash Upgrades Won’t Cause Permanent Forks

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) developers have recently assured the crypto community that the blockchain network is unlikely to experience a chain split when it undergoes the next upgrade on May 6, 2021.

Cameron Lee, a musician who accepts BCH for payments, had asked the devs if there will be a split during the blockchain’s upcoming upgrade. During Bitcoin Cash’s 2018 hard fork, he noted that a faction split off to create a new blockchain called Bitcoin SV led by Craig Wright. 

Bitcoin Cash developer Josh Green responded by saying that future splits are unlikely. He noted that it would be “difficult for a split to happen at this point,” as an alternate node team would need to deliberately advocate for change and gain a prominent share of Bitcoin Cash’s mining power. 

Paul Wasensteiner, Executive Director of the Bitcoin Cash Association, said that the goal is to not have any splits at all, ideally for several years. He added that developer discussions help prevent splits by bringing together the blockchain’s ecosystem. He added: 

It’s not just about May, it’s about all of the foreseeable future of Bitcoin Cash. 

Another developer, Emergent Reasons, noted that Bitcoin Cash and similar blockchains are designed so that miners can intentionally split the blockchain. However, he says that there is “basically no chance” of that as nobody desires a split. 

Reasons concluded that there is no single approach that will ensure that splits do not occur in the future. However, he noted that the development community aims to establish a culture that instantly clarifies how companies and devs feel about proposed changes.


Bitcoin Cash Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Bitcoin Cash price is likely going to test the $500 level. If they somehow cross the $510 resistance barrier, BCH will reach $550.
