Cardano Introduces Proof-of-Stake With ‘Shelley’ Hard Fork
It's alive! Cardano has successfully hard forked to its major upgrade, Shelley, which introduced proof-of-stake to the network.
The Thanos upgrade is aimed to allow more miner participation and thus increase security.
The hybrid blockchain will soon undergo a fork enabling network participants to stake and earn rewards from tokens held in offline wallets.
If the Bitcoin network is a collectively told story, as the philosopher Craig Warmke argued, wouldn't hard forks be fan fiction?
A California appeals court has backed a prior judgment that the cryptocurrency exchange wasn't obliged to to support the Bitcoin Gold hard fork in 2017.
The bug sheds light on the challenges of Bitcoin's decentralization. At least we've got 86 years for the community to join together and implement a fix.
