On 28 September 2019 at 10:00 UTC BitCash will hard fork. The new wallet version v0.17.19 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android is uploaded and everyone will need to upgrade their wallets before the hard fork. Download Wallet Version v0.17.19 Here.

The most notable change from the hard for will be the switch to X16Rv2. The move to X16Rv2 is necessary to remain ASIC resistant as there now is an ASIC miner available for X16R. We are adding the algorithm Tiger into three separate parts of the current X16R algo. The Tiger hash is performed before the algorithms Luffa512, Keccak512, and SHA512. The t-rex miner included in the Windows version of the BitCash Wallet will be updated as soon as t-rex releases the version with the X16Rv2 support.

The new algo has been added to the github reference implementation for the Yiimp mining pool: https://github.com/WillyTheCat/bitcashyiimpx16

After the fork when you convert to and from BitCash to BitCash Dollar, the blockchain will now be able to store a min and max acceptable price. The newest wallet version v0.17.19 will set this price range to +- 3% of the current price. The blockchain will now be able to store this information. For example, if a large price jump happens shortly after you sent the transaction and before it has been mined into a block, this mechanism will protect you so that you do not get a unacceptable price for your conversion. The transaction will be removed from mempool if the price is out of range. You can then abandon the transaction and create a new transaction.

Other notes:

· Better Privacy

· Random salt for AES encryption
