Founding President of the Bitcoin Association Jimmy Nguyen brings us this week’s episode of the Bitcoin Vision from Siberia, Russia. Nguyen had the privilege of being one of the guest speakers at the recent Baikal Blockchain and Crypto Summit, where he educated the delegates about Bitcoin SV (BSV) and why it’s the only blockchain project that’s able to scale to meet enterprise needs.
The BSV community continues to prepare for the eagerly anticipated Genesis protocol upgrade set to take place in February 2020. Everyone in the BSV ecosystem will have a role to play in the upgrade — from miners, to developers, to wallets and exchanges. And to make it easier and more convenient to keep up with all the developments leading up to the upgrade, you can enable notifications directly to your email via a new feature on the Bitcoin SV website.
Nguyen also highlighted the recent developments by BSV/DEVS directory, the one-stop shop for all Bitcoin SV-related developer resources. It announced recently on Twitter that it is now supporting user accounts. Users can now claim any listing as theirs and also make any edits or updates as they deem fit. The directory also added support for file uploads, giving the users the ability to attach manuals, specifications and other related materials to their applications.
For the non-developers, there’s something for you as well. The OnChain BSV/MAPS feature is constantly being updated with new locations where BSV is accepted by merchants near you.
BSV Galaxy is a Bitcoin SV artists collective allowing members to find and collaborate with other members, as well as business development of artists projects. As the founders noted on the website, the platform seeks to “help you to use the Bitcoin SV Blockchain to create new tools, applications, and ultimately change the world into a better place using Proof of Work.”
For the week’s Satoshi shoutout, Nguyen applauded the Bitcoin SV Node Team. Lead developer Daniel Connolly recently wrote a blog post about how the BSV blockchain has proven itself as a reliable method of processing enormous numbers of transactions. The post was written to correct a false narrative that had been advanced by some crypto media sites that the Bitcoin SV blockchain had undergone a three-way fork after the Quasar protocol upgrade. The post puts to bed these allegations and clarifies that the BSV network is performing reliably and is still proving itself to be the superior blockchain project.
