the year 2020 in Bitcoin Cash so far: a detailed history

the year 2020 in Bitcoin Cash so far: a detailed history
What follows at the bottom is a four page long chronological overview of what happened in BCH in 2020 so far. To make it more digestable and fun to read I start with my narrating of the story.
My attempt was to remain as objective as possible and "let the facts speak for themselve" with everything sourced. I also link to many read.cash articles, the decision of which are the important ones to include is certainly not easy, I count on the rest of the community if I overlooked anything important.

summary & my narrating of the story:
The year started out relatively calm, with cashfusion in "the news" and an older ongoing controversy between Amaury and Roger Ver being worked out. Starting Jan 22nd all debate broke loose with the announcement of “Infrastructure Funding Plan for Bitcoin Cash” by Jiang Zhuoer of BTC.TOP. To illustrate this point 2 days later coinspice ran the title " Roger Ver Praises Vigorous Debate, [...]" and 6 days, less than a week, later Chris Pacia made a read.cash post titled "The 253rd "Thoughts on developer funding" Article" which might have been only a slight exaggeration or he might have been counting. Part of the reason of the tsunami was the lack of worked out details. By the time of Pacia's post a lot had changed: Both BU, Bitcoin Verde and a group of miners had made announcements not to go along with "the plan".
On feb 1st, the second version of the IFP was announced by Jiang Zhuoer in a post “BCH miner donation plan update”. Two weeks later on Feb 15th, the third iteration was announced by Bitcoin ABC which was to be activated by hashrate voting and on the same day Flipstarter was introduced, a sign of the search for alternative solutions. After a few more days and a few more people coming out more against the IFP (including Jonald Fyookball, Mark Lundeberg & Josh Ellithorpe), BCHN was announced on feb 20th with a formal release a week later. Also feb 27th, the DAA was brought back into the conversation by Jonathan Toomim with his " The BCH difficulty adjustment algorithm is broken. Here's how to fix it." video. By early march the IFP was effectively dead with its author Jiang Zhuoer vowing to vote against it. This became clear to everyone when ABC, a day later sudddenly shifted gears towards non-protocol, donation based funding: the IFP was dead. End march ABCs 2020 Business Plan was announced as a way to raise $3.3 million. Mid april to mid may was the high time for voluntary funding with four node implementations and General Protocols, a BCH DeFi Startup successfully raising funds.
By May 15th, the 6th HF network upgrade things had pretty much cooled down. The upgraded included nothing controversial and even saw an unexpected doubling in the unconfirmed transaction chain. June 15th a month later things started to heat up again with the BCHN announcement to remove the "poison pill" or "automatic replay protection". 8th Jul Jonathan Toomim posted "BCH protocol upgrade proposal: Use ASERT as the new DAA" which promised the solution to the long dragging DAA problem. Jul 23th however an unexpected twist occurred when Amaury Séchet posted "Announcing the Grasberg DAA" an incompatible, alternative solution. This, again, sparked a ton of debate and discussion. Grasberg lasted just two weeks from Jul 23th to Aug 6th when ABC announced its plans for the november 2020 upgrade but it had successfully united the opposition in the meanwhile. ABCs plan for november included dropping grasberg in favour of aserti3–2d and introducing IFPv4. Now we're here August 8th, the IFP which was declared dead after just over a month (Jan 22-Mar 5) is now back in full force. The rest of the history is still being written but if p2p electronic cash is to succeed in any big regard it's very thinkable that these events will get into history books.

How Bitcoin Halving Will Affect BTC Price

Bitcoin Halving 2020

In every 210K mined blocks a planned (programmed) event takes place. This event is called halving. It is a regular reduction of miners’ fee (reward) for a produced block. Bitcoin creator put these halvings in software to keep inflation in check. Most commonly one block is being mined in 9 minutes and 20 seconds. According to this, halving occurs every four years. The Bitcoin network had two halvings: first in 2012 and then in 2016. If we look back and remember how much coins miners could earn in the early history of Bitcoin, it was 50 BTC for one block. Later on, after the first halving, the fee was equal to 25 BTC and the same happened four years after, then the reward was cut down to 12.5 BTC. The next (third) halving may be expected in May 2020. The payoff then will be reduced to 6.25 BTC. This will actually continue till there’s no award left (this will approximately happen in 2140).
So why is there a need for halving? If coins are produced very fast or the amount of emitted BTC is not limited, there will be so many Bitcoins in circulation that they will have limited value. Vitalik Buterin once said in his interview with Bitcoin Magazine: «The main reason why this is done is to keep inflation under control.»

What will happen with BTC price after Bitcoin halving?

Like any other cryptocurrency price prediction, the Bitcoin price prediction is always hard to make, so we can just guess looking at a combination of factors. Opinions are divided as follows: some think that the BTC price will go up and others think nothing will generally change and the price will stay the same. There are also skeptics that see the halving as bad luck. They believe that if even 10 percent of miners quit, it might scare away the investors and make them move out their assets. As a result, the Bitcoin price will go down. After the first Bitcoin halving the BTC price grew almost two hundredfold, the second time it grew sevenfold. Both times BTC had increased volatility. But no one can guarantee the same events nowadays. As far as we can see from the previous halvings, they had the same dynamics: the Bitcoin price grew up. This gives some people hope that it will repeat after the next BTC halving in May 2020.
What are people’s opinions and predictions regarding the next Bitcoin halving? Let’s have a look.

The CEO of Pantera Capital Dan Morehead predicts the rise of BTC after the coming halving:
“It’s right on the trend line, and I think it’s a good shot that by the end of the year, we hit that, and then if you just extrapolate that line out for another year, it’s $122,000 per Bitcoin and in one more year $356,000.”

Tom Lee from Fundstrat Global Advisors posted a part of the report regarding crypto outlook 2020. Here what is said regarding the BTC price in that report:
“For 2020, we see several positive convergences that enhance the use case and also the economic model for crypto and Bitcoin – thus, we believe Bitcoin and crypto total return should exceed that of 2019. In other words, we see strong probability that Bitcoin gains >100% in 2020.”

Bobby Lee (co-founder and CEO of BTC China) also expressed his opinion via twit saying:
“After next #BlockRewardHalving in Spring of 2020, new #Bitcoin output will drop again, to just 900 BTC/day. I predict #HashPower will continue to grow, with ever higher amounts of investment in mining (electricity costs). If that amount reaches $54m/day, we‘ll have $BTC at $60k.”

Jason A. Williams had an “unpopular opinion”:
“Unpopular Opinion – Bitcoin halving in May 2020 won’t do anything to the price. It will be a non-event.”

John McAfee is insanely positive as usual when speaking about the Bitcoin price prediction:
“When I predicted Bitcoin at $500,000 by the end of 2020, it used a model that predicted $5,000 at the end of 2017. BTC has accelerated much faster than my model assumptions. I now predict Bitcoin at $1 million by the end of 2020. I will still eat my d\ck if wrong.”*

Paolo Ardoino (Bitfinex & Tether Chief Technology Officer) said the following in his interview to U.Today:
“The halving is expected to occur next year, and I think it’s reasonable to expect an increase in the price of Bitcoin. I won’t do any price predictions myself and this is not financial or other advice from me or from Bitfinex or Tether, but I don’t see any reason for Bitcoin not hitting $100,000 within the next few years. That would already be an amazing goal for such technology.”

Tone Vays (Financial analyst) is less ambitious. That’s what he thinks:
“Technically, everything is in play until end of 2020, after that sub $5,000 is not likely. Worst Case Scenario: prices drop to $5k into the halving, then after halving 70% of miners shut down due to negative revenue, #Bitcoin spirals down in price but then rises from the dead!”

Petros Anagnostou, the founder of Crypto Solutions declares:
“My prediction: Bitcoin will reach $12,000 before the end of this year. And will reach a price of $50,000 – $100,000 by the end of 2020.”

To summarize, the forthcoming BTC halving 2020 will be a kind of guarantee that there will be no inflation, and investments will be profitable. At the same time, it is being one of the key factors responsible for the growth of the Bitcoin price. When it comes to miners, they usually feel stressed about it as to keep their income at the same level they will need to invest in new technical equipment. As for those who don’t mine but just buy Bitcoin to keep BTC as a cryptocurrency investment, the BTC halving will barely have any effect on them.
No one can predict what exactly will happen after the upcoming BTC halving. It is always up to you either be on the optimistic side or be one of the doubters.

Una breve historia de Ethereum

Una breve historia de Ethereum
En 2012, a los 17 años, Vitalik Buterin conoció Bitcoin por su padre y se interesó mucho en su tecnología. Vitalik comenzó a escribir para Bitcoin Magazine y sugirió mejoras a la plataforma Bitcoin. Cuando no se hicieron estas mejoras, decidió crear su propia criptomoneda.

Su idea fue Ethereum, y se puso en marcha en 2015. Desde que comenzó, el precio de Ethereum ha subido mucho y ahora tiene una "capitalización de mercado" de 48.700 millones de dólares (ese es el valor total de toda la moneda Ethereum en el mundo actual). Entonces, ¿por qué Ethereum está subiendo?

An Article on the State of DAOs - where we stand today and how the term is being used

Since 2016 and the fall of the DAO project, spotlights on DAOs have silently faded until 2019, when it started to gain traction again. During this period of what we call the ‘winter of DAOs’, there was and there still is a general sense of trauma revolving around DAOs and the idea of decentralizing organizations with the help of smart contracts.
In the ‘Beginners Guide to CBDAO’ article, we have explained the term DAO, in layman’s terms, to be an organization which is governed and managed by all members as opposed to having a select few entity or individual(s) governing and making executive decisions indefinitely.
However, this definition does not do justice to the overall concept of DAOs. There exists some room for debate as to what exactly a DAO is and how it operates. Philippe Honigman from DAObase states that each of the words in the term DAO, “can be interpreted in many ways, spawning different definitions of DAOs with emphasis on one aspect or another”.
For instance, the word ‘decentralized’ in the term ‘DAO’ may contain varying meanings as the word does not fully indicate or consider the level of decentralization used on its consensus protocol (these levels are described in the Beginners Guide to CBDAO article). Honigman (DAObase) describes the word ‘decentralized’ to have two varying meanings when it comes to DAOs and these are:
As such, it is not right to assume all DAO projects to be completelydecentralized’ and ‘autonomous’.

So what exactly is a DAO and how can we better describe the term?

To be able to better understand the term, we will have to briefly learn about the history of DAOs and how they emerged. The concept of DAOs were first introduced by Dan Larimer back in 2013 as he was describing Bitcoin to be a ‘Decentralized Autonomous Corporation’, whereby its shareholders would be the holders and its employees would be the miners.
For something to be considered a ‘DAC’, it must have the following measurements met:
DAOs work in the similar sense that:
Now that DACs were a ‘thing’, the blockchain community moved on to discuss about how these DACs could be governed better. Here’s where Vitalik Buterin (Founder of Ethereum) first introduced the idea of a resource-democracy voting mechanism, while he was still working as a writer on the Bitcoin Magazine.
“We can use some kind of resource-democracy mechanism to vote on the correct value of some fact, and ensure that people are incentivized to provide accurate estimates by depriving everyone whose report does not match the “mainstream view” of the monetary reward.” — Vitalik Buterin
As such, an incentivized governance protocol was first introduced for DACs. Ever since, many different types of consensus protocols have emerged and DACs have evolved to become DAOs.
Philippe from DAObase explains that as of today, there are two dominant types of DAOs — protocols and collectives.
“Protocol DAOs enable interested parties to make collective decisions regarding the critical parameters of a crypto-network based on an open-source protocol: blockchain protocols such as Tezos or Decred, financial protocols such as Compound, DeversiFi or Maker.
Collectives are closer to traditional organizations: They have a smaller number of active members and a wider range of activities than protocol DAOs. 1Hive, dOrg, or MetaGame are examples of collectives that use DAOs to be more transparent, more open, more flexible and fairer towards their members than usual corporations.”
He further indicates that “there is no such thing as a pure “Decentralized Autonomous Organization”. DAOs are imperfectly decentralized, very moderately autonomous, and hardly comparable to organizations in the traditional sense”.
DAOs are less a thing than a gradual, dynamic process. — Philippe Honigman

Here are two videos you should watch to provide yourself with a better understanding of the term. In these videos, Aragon and DAOstack both try to explain what a DAO is and how they operate. Notice that there is a difference in their tone and explanation of the overall concept of DAOs. Aragon explains it to be a ‘fight for freedom’ in decentralizing what can be and should be decentralized whilst DAOstack describes it to be more of a ‘collaborative experience’.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqjIWmiAidw

If you are still unsure about DAOs, it is recommended that you read the following articles which comprehensively covers the concept and definition of DAOs.

DAC Revisited

How the term DAO applies to Coin Breeder

Coin Breeder DAO (CBDAO) can be seen as a hybrid of the protocol-type and the collective-type of DAOs, whereby it functions just like a traditional organization with the ability to make collective decisions regarding the critical parameters of the crypto-network ($BREE token) with an open-source protocol (the $BREE token smart contract).
As Philippe explains above, “there is no such thing as a pure “Decentralized Autonomous Organization”. This statement can be similarly applied to CBDAO in the sense that complete ‘decentralization’ and ‘autonomy’ can’t be met due to the nature of the $BREE tokenonomics — e.g. determining farming rates for each governance asset (an off-chain oracle and manual review is required). However, attempts to reach pure ‘decentralization’ and ‘autonomy’ are in the scopes of our roadmap and it should be noted that it is indeed one of our core priorities (roadmap can be viewed here).

CBDAO’s Role in Researching DAOs

CBDAO will serve as the ultimate sandbox for DAO and blockchain researchers, developers and users to proof-test and experiment various consensus protocols on DAOs. Our main focus will be in experimenting consensus protocols and voting mechanisms to solve existing challenges and vulnerabilities in regards to governing DAOs (some of the issues have been outlined here). CBDAO will be publishing quarterly reports on these experiments, highlighting what we have learned and how things could be improved. Our ultimate goal and mission is to provide a wide range of fundamental reference points for future researchers and developers to save their time and risk less on experimenting and proof-testing various consensus protocols on a DAO. CBDAO will evolve with the community as we collectively experiment, learn and grow together.

An Article on The State of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs)

Since 2016 and the fall of the DAO project, spotlights on DAOs have silently faded until 2019, when it started to gain traction again. During this period of what we call the ‘winter of DAOs’, there was and there still is a general sense of trauma revolving around DAOs and the idea of decentralizing organizations with the help of smart contracts.
In the ‘Beginners Guide to CBDAO’ article, we have explained the term DAO, in layman’s terms, to be an organization which is governed and managed by all members as opposed to having a select few entity or individual(s) governing and making executive decisions indefinitely.
However, this definition does not do justice to the overall concept of DAOs. There exists some room for debate as to what exactly a DAO is and how it operates. Philippe Honigman from DAObase states that each of the words in the term DAO, “can be interpreted in many ways, spawning different definitions of DAOs with emphasis on one aspect or another”.
For instance, the word ‘decentralized’ in the term ‘DAO’ may contain varying meanings as the word does not fully indicate or consider the level of decentralization used on its consensus protocol (these levels are described in the Beginners Guide to CBDAO article). Honigman (DAObase) describes the word ‘decentralized’ to have two varying meanings when it comes to DAOs and these are:
As such, it is not right to assume all DAO projects to be completelydecentralized’ and ‘autonomous’.
So what exactly is a DAO and how can we better describe the term?
To be able to better understand the term, we will have to briefly learn about the history of DAOs and how they emerged. The concept of DAOs were first introduced by Dan Larimer back in 2013 as he was describing Bitcoin to be a ‘Decentralized Autonomous Corporation’, whereby its shareholders would be the holders and its employees would be the miners.
For something to be considered a ‘DAC’, it must have the following measurements met:
DAOs work in the similar sense that:
Now that DACs were a ‘thing’, the blockchain community moved on to discuss about how these DACs could be governed better. Here’s where Vitalik Buterin (Founder of Ethereum) first introduced the idea of a resource-democracy voting mechanism, while he was still working as a writer on the Bitcoin Magazine.
“We can use some kind of resource-democracy mechanism to vote on the correct value of some fact, and ensure that people are incentivized to provide accurate estimates by depriving everyone whose report does not match the “mainstream view” of the monetary reward.” — Vitalik Buterin
As such, an incentivized governance protocol was first introduced for DACs. Ever since, many different types of consensus protocols have emerged and DACs have evolved to become DAOs.
Philippe from DAObase explains that as of today, there are two dominant types of DAOs — protocols and collectives.
“Protocol DAOs enable interested parties to make collective decisions regarding the critical parameters of a crypto-network based on an open-source protocol: blockchain protocols such as Tezos or Decred, financial protocols such as Compound, DeversiFi or Maker.
Collectives are closer to traditional organizations: They have a smaller number of active members and a wider range of activities than protocol DAOs. 1Hive, dOrg, or MetaGame are examples of collectives that use DAOs to be more transparent, more open, more flexible and fairer towards their members than usual corporations.”
He further indicates that “there is no such thing as a pure “Decentralized Autonomous Organization”. DAOs are imperfectly decentralized, very moderately autonomous, and hardly comparable to organizations in the traditional sense”.
DAOs are less a thing than a gradual, dynamic process. — Philippe Honigman
Here are two videos you should watch to provide yourself with a better understanding of the term. In these videos, Aragon and DAOstack both try to explain what a DAO is and how they operate. Notice that there is a difference in their tone and explanation of the overall concept of DAOs. Aragon explains it to be a ‘fight for freedom’ in decentralizing what can be and should be decentralized whilst DAOstack describes it to be more of a ‘collaborative experience’.

If you are still unsure about DAOs, it is recommended that you read the following articles which comprehensively covers the concept and definition of DAOs.

How the term DAO applies to Coin Breeder
Coin Breeder DAO (CBDAO) can be seen as a hybrid of the protocol-type and the collective-type of DAOs, whereby it functions just like a traditional organization with the ability to make collective decisions regarding the critical parameters of the crypto-network ($BREE token) with an open-source protocol (the $BREE token smart contract).
As Philippe explains above, “there is no such thing as a pure “Decentralized Autonomous Organization”. This statement can be similarly applied to CBDAO in the sense that complete ‘decentralization’ and ‘autonomy’ can’t be met due to the nature of the $BREE tokenonomics — e.g. determining farming rates for each governance asset (an off-chain oracle and manual review is required). However, attempts to reach pure ‘decentralization’ and ‘autonomy’ are in the scopes of our roadmap and it should be noted that it is indeed one of our core priorities (roadmap can be viewed here).

CBDAO’s Role in Researching DAOs
CBDAO will serve as the ultimate sandbox for DAO and blockchain researchers, developers and users to proof-test and experiment various consensus protocols on DAOs. Our main focus will be in experimenting consensus protocols and voting mechanisms to solve existing challenges and vulnerabilities in regards to governing DAOs (some of the issues have been outlined here). CBDAO will be publishing quarterly reports on these experiments, highlighting what we have learned and how things could be improved. Our ultimate goal and mission is to provide a wide range of fundamental reference points for future researchers and developers to save their time and risk less on experimenting and proof-testing various consensus protocols on a DAO. CBDAO will evolve with the community as we collectively experiment, learn and grow together.
