If you want to help the development of Bitcoin, OKCoin has an exciting new campaign that can make a big difference to Bitcoin SV (BSV) applications. As announced in their recent press release, the OKCoin “Let’s Build Bitcoin Together” pledge could mean an additional 1,000 SegWitCoin (BTC) worth of funding for BSV development.
Starting on September 3, 2019 at 6:00am PT, OKCoin users will be asked to vote for the selected developers they want to support. Every vote towards a group will contribute 0.02 BTC to that cause until all 1,000 BTC have been donated. Users have until September 27 to cast their vote, or until the 1,000 BTC have all been donated.
Participating in the campaign for BSV, the only Bitcoin to follow Satoshi’s original vision with massive blockchain scaling and a stable protocol, are the Bitcoin Association and Cambrian SV. They will be competing against the BTC’s Bitcoin Core development team and Bitcoin Cash’s ABC dev team, BCHD and Bitcoin Unlimited.
This is tremendous opportunity for the BSV community to make a huge contribution to BSV development with minimal effort or cost. At current BTC prices, every OKCoin user could make an approximate $200 difference to BSVs future.
If you don’t have an OKCoin account, the process is simple. Just make an account, pass KYC (Know your Customer) Level 2, and deposit both am minimum of $100 USD and $100 in crypto, having both in your account at the same time. That’s it! You keep the funds, and your vote can mean a healthy contribution to BSV development.
If you already have an account and have ever met this criteria, you can already vote.
Tim Byun, OKCoin’s CEO, noted that this is their attempt to re-invest in the ecosystem. “There is no question that the past few years have been a roller coaster for the whole community, so we’ve decided to step up and give back to the developers who keep moving us forward,” he noted in the press release. “The ‘Let’s Build Bitcoin Together!’ initiative, which we believe is the first exchange-led community investment of this scale, is our way of showing our commitment and dedication to the Bitcoin community.”
So if your looking to give back to BSV, this is the perfect chance to do so. Get over to OKCoin, and do what you need to do to vote for Bitcoin SV.
