Slow and Empty Blocks With a Mysterious Message - ABC's New Chain Off to a Rocky Start | Bitcoin News

On November 15, 2020, the Bitcoin Cash blockchain experienced a network upgrade and a bifurcation of the chain as well.

Since the 15th, the nameless ABC chain has seen 197 blocks processed to-date, as a few miners are pointing hashrate at the network keeping the new blockchain going.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was 20 blocks ahead of the ABC chain at this point in time that afternoon.

As of today, the ABC chain has processed 197 blocks, as miners have dedicated a diminutive amount of SHA256 hashrate to the alternative network.

The empty ABC chain blocks also had a coinbase parameter message that once said: “/Nov 25th 2020/.” Although, that coinbase message has changed in recent hours.

On Sunday, Bitcoin Cash proponent Javier González tweeted that the BAB chain was at extreme risk of a blockchain reorganization (reorg).

“The BAB empty blocks now include this message: ‘> Nov 25th 2020: bcha dump | http://voluntarism.dev:6174 u/p: x/x,’” González wrote.
