The latest hard fork of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on May 15 has increased its block size to 32 megabytes. Since then the developer Unwriter has created three applications called Chainfeed, bot_opreturn, and read.cash.
BCH was launched on August 1, 2017, with a size of 8MB per block, the project started as a split from the Bitcoin blockchain. The decision to split from the original block has created a lot of controversy in the bitcoin and cryptocurrency community. After almost one year the disputes and discussions over which is the real Bitcoin still go on but at lower magnitudes. While the conflicts have not disappeared the developers of BCH are continuing working on the project. With the recent Hard Fork and increase in block size to 32MB a developer dubbed Unwriter has developed new applications.
BCH Blockchain Newsfeed – Chainfeed
Chainfeed is a global newsfeed that displays in real time all the news that is created in the Bitcoin Cash Network. To do this, the tool logs all OP_Return transactions on the BCH chain and delivers the data to the users on the side of the clients. If you scroll through the interface, you can see all the transactions that are currently taking place. The users can filter the information so that they only find OP_Return transactions that are tied to specific applications such as blockpress. The data can be shared via a link or bookmarked.
Twitter/blockchain bot, _opreturn:
The Twitter bot @_opreturn is a program that uses the Chainfeed firehouse API to record real-time messages sent on the BCH chain. The messages are then replicated to Twitter using the Twitter API. The bot has now posted 3,435 tweets and has 123 followers (as of 27.06.2018).
Read.cash: Wallet monitoring
Third, “Unwriter” finally wrote the read.cash application. The application takes all social media accounts of BCH like yours.org, blockpress, and memo and unites them in a single platform. This allows the users to manage all connected BCH wallets in one place. It also allows read.cash to add portfolios through the public keys instead of using private keys. read.cash also creates a watchlist so that users can monitor the account activity and deposits on websites.
All the applications are open source, and both the code and the descriptions can be viewed on Github.
The BCH price is currently at $706. In the past 24 hours, the cryptocurrency has seen a decrease of 3.5 percent while on the weekly and monthly index, BCH went down between 20 and 21 percent.
