Bitcoin Cash Devs Publish the First 3 of 3 Multi-Sig Schnorr Transaction
On May 15, the Bitcoin Cash network successfully upgraded by implementing Schnorr signatures, after which a few developers processed some basic Schnorr signatures. Then, on Saturday, May 18, software developers Chris Pacia, Mark Lundeberg, and Checksum0 performed the first multi-sig Schnorr signature on BCH and sent the funds to Also Read: After Trillions Printed Under QE, Politicians Now Say Deficits Don?t Matter This weekend, Openbazaar and Bchd full node developer Chris Pacia announced the first 3 of 3 multi-signature in a Pays To PubKey Hash (P2PKH) output. Developers Checksum0 and Mark Lundeberg helped process the transaction and the funds were sent to the Ross Ulbricht defense fund. ?Mark Lundeberg, Chris Pacia and I made the first Schnorr multi-signature in history ? The transaction is a donation to Free Ross ? Proof will be published shortly,? explained Checksum before the transaction confirmed. Then, sure enough, the multi-sig transaction published to the chain and contained an opreturn message which read:

Mining Pool BTC.Top Briefly Controls Over 51% of Bitcoin Cash's Hashrate
BTC.Top, a popular cryptocurrency mining pool, has recently hit a high of 54% of Bitcoin Cash?s hashrate, before seeing it recede. According to some users the mining pool has just been going after profitability, although any pool having over 51% of the hashrate could be cause for concern. According to data from Coin.Dance, BTC.Top managed to mine over 54% of the blocks on the Bitcoin Cash network for a brief period of time, before seeing its hashrate go down. At press time, data shows in the last 24-hour period it mined 47% of blocks on the network. 51% ?? ?????#BCH

CoinSpice Research: Bitcoin Cash Upgrade Attack and the 110K BCH Bitfinex Position
TL;DR: Ahead of the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) protocol upgrade and corresponding attack on the network, both of which took place 15 May 2019, traders on cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex borrowed more than 110,000 BCH. If the price of that BCH position fell, traders potentially could have profited handsomely. Although unusually timed, it is impossible to say whether this borrowing activity was linked to the attack. And, while it looks unlikely the money was ever used to short sell BCH, the traders would have been left with a hefty bill all the same. Earlier this week, we saw a malicious actor carry out an attack on the Bitcoin Cash network, coinciding with a previously planned network upgrade. The attack, lasting just a few hours, resulted in transactions not confirming and the network producing 10 consecutive empty blocks before a patch was released to resolve the bug. During the attack, a few clever developers managed to steal 1.2 BCH from the attacker, however rumours of possibly larger financial stakes came on the back of higher-than-usual BCH lending activity on Bitfinex.

Bitcoin Cash Network glitch after hardfork
Final update 17:53 UTC: The Bitcoin Cash blockchain appears to be processing transactions normally. Most blocks found since the last update and include a few hundred transactions in them, with most having been processed by BTC.Top. It's believed the network is now reasonably safe once again. Update?17:06 UTC: Two block with over 2,500 transactions combined has been mined. The BCH blockchain currently has blocks that could grow to as mcuh as 32 MB if needed, meaning the blockchain can easily clear the mempool it build up during the glitch. Available data shows the size of BCH's mempool dropped sharply after the block was mined.

Bitcoin Cash Overcomes an Attack, Successfully Implements Schnorr Signatures
Bitcoin Cash developers managed to quickly thwart an attack exploiting a bug in their software, the BCH network now supports Schnorr signatures. Bitcoin Cash has successfully completed its planned network upgrade. As of block 582680, mined at around 5:30 PM UTC, the updated BCH network now supports Schnorr signatures. This upgrade prevents second-party malleability, but given the preference Bitcoin cash developers have for on-chain scaling, the biggest benefit is a 4% reduction in transaction size, which slightly enhances scalability and throughput. However, the upgrade was not as smooth as ecosystem participants would have hoped for. A block template creation bug was exploited by a malicious entity, which resulted in empty blocks being mined, an orphaned block, and a temporary mempool size of nearly 20MB.

Bitcoin Cash Protocol Successfully Upgrades Schnorr Signatures Are Here
The Bitcoin Cash (BCH) chain has officially upgraded, adding Schnorr signatures and the Segwit recovery exemption. As of block 582680, the chain has implemented the new features successfully and BCH fans are celebrating another major protocol improvement. Also read: Schnorr Signatures Are Coming to Bitcoin Cash ? Here?s What You Should Know On Wednesday, May 15, the Bitcoin Cash network has completed yet another successful upgrade by implementing two new features ? Segwit recovery and Schnorr signatures. Essentially, the Segwit recovery addition makes it possible for network participants to recover funds that have been sent to Segwit addresses by accident. The implementation makes an exemption following the enforcement of the new CLEANSTACK rule that made Segwit recovery previously impossible after the upgrade last November. But the high profile feature everyone?s been chatting about is the implementation of Schnorr signatures, a digital signature scheme that allows for complex signing abilities.

First to Market: All Bitcoin Cash in SideShift AI Now Processed Through CashShuffle
TL;DR: Recently, automated coin swap service SideShift AI revealed a successful mix of bitcoin cash (BCH) through transaction anonymizing tool CashShuffle, using JavaScript. And while the test was compelling and interesting, it is now live and standard on the SideShift AI platform, making it the first-to-market service of its kind, furthering the quest of some enthusiasts toward more cash-like properties for peer-to-peer digital money.   More Spice: SideShift AI Founder Creates First CashShuffle Mix on Public Server with JavaScript On the morning of 11 May 2019, SideShift AI confirmed all BCH received on their platform is shuffled, and no BCH sent goes unshuffled. ?SideShift AI will use a simplified wallet setup to enable CashShuffle early,? a representative disclosed. ?Deposits go to wallet A. Withdrawals sent from wallet B. All outputs from A are shuffled over to B. As a side effect, withdrawal change will end up in B,? noting the service will transition soon to a hierarchical deterministic wallet (shuffling from the same address to the same address isn?t really an improvement in privacy, they noted).

A single Bitcoin Cash address is responsible for nearly 50 percent of the networks transactions in the past month.
One single address on the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network has accounted for nearly half of all the transactions in the past month. The movement, which was first brought to The Block?s attention in a tweet by poster 'IamNomad,? could be an indication that there?s a single entity acting to prop up the number of transactions to make the network look more active. The address first started to make transactions on April 8, and at the time of this writing has made over 575,000 transactions. In the same period, the entire Bitcoin Cash blockchain has processed 1.17 million transactions meaning that this one address has accounted for 49% percent of BCH's total transactions.

Bitcoin Cash readies up for Schnorr signatures, which will make transactions faster and lighter.
Bitcoin Cash has beaten Bitcoin to the Schnorr party, but will that translate to real use? Bitcoin Cash is preparing for another fork, which will upgrade the software for the fourth-most valuable blockchain network. Unlike the last hard fork, the next upgrade is unlikely to cause any dramatic splits, focusing instead on efficiency and scalability improvements. The biggest addition to the protocol is Schorr signatures, which will allow enhanced scaling to the blockchain network.  Bitcoin Cash will add Schnorr signatures on the mainnet on May 15, replacing the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA), which is the legacy signature protocol of the original bitcoin. Schnorr signatures make transactions leaner, with several signatures able to be verified simultaneously.
