Since its birth in 2009, Bitcoin has become one of the most influential cryptocurrencies and developed into one of the most reliable public blockchain networks. It’s an important achievement of human civilization, which has great possibility of becoming the infrastructure of the development for other blockchains.
However, with the massive strides of Bitcoin and massive influx of users, in order for Bitcoin to survive and continue to grow, it’s been proposed to increase the size of current block chain and upgrading software which might lead to Bitcoin split. There has been debate within the Bitcoin community.
Under the circumstances that it’s unknown yet whether we are heading towards a split or not, we decide to make precautions for the upcoming Bitcoin fork on August 1st by:
- inactivating the bitcoin payment option in the days following the split until things clear up.
- providing alternatives for payment.
