REAL-TIME PAYMENT BLOCKCHAIN

(Possible) upcoming Bitcoin fork explained

 
Good article explaining in layman terms the (possible) upcoming Bitcoin fork – a possibility to get two versions of the popular cryptocurrency due to the split of Bitcoin community.
The risk is that Bitcoin could effectively split in two, with one type becoming incompatible with another, ultimately undermining confidence in the project altogether.
The issue is that Bitcoin’s underlying technology has an in-built constraint: the ledger of past transactions, known as the blockchain, can have only 1MB of data added to it every 10 minutes.
Some software developers have favoured reorganising the format of Bitcoin transactions to make the blockchain more efficient. However, critics say it would deliver only a temporary respite while adding an extra level of complexity.

About GRAFT Project

GRAFT is a blockchain based payment processing network the functions similarly to a credit card processing network with off-chain authorizations and in-network atomic swap based interchanges. The network is completely decentralized, able to work cross borders and adapting to local regulatory environment.

In addition to decentralization, GRAFT solves four biggest problems that exist in cryptocurrency at a point-of-sale today - privacy, speed, fees, and integration.

Economically, it’s a two layer (proof-of-work and proof-of-stake) blockchain with proof-of-stake based authorizations with participants able to benefit both for mining and staking

Finally GRAFT is open-platform, open-source, non-for profit community project. To support GRAFT Network, please donate BTC to: 39UBccrXeKBtoxeKXPqsXxPFnhzt6bueSY
