This release include various changes. The most notable is a difficulty adjustment algorithm that decrease the difficulty in case hashrate gets very low. We obviously which that this feature won't be used, and it won't kick in if hashrate stay above 8% of the global hashrate. However, this ensure that this chain will survive no matter what, as long as someone think it is valuable.

Maybe if you have some old ASICs, they can be useful again ...

Haven't heard of this one before, a new implementation? Am I missing something or this implementation is basically going backwards on months and months of ideas, developments and talks?

There are some devs that have worked (and they are still working) also on Bitcoin Unlimited, and you can see the presentation here:

This is beginning to become a joke with all the other implementations around. If one fails to gain support from the community on they go with the next. I am not an expert by any means to make a technical comment but the experts like Peter Todd that make technical arguments are brushed off as FUD with no technical rebuttal. Also if there are bugs in their release they blame someone else.

I noticed the difficulty adjust kicked in at 478577 and is now down to 225505642691.99. We are at block 478599 and the difficulty is constant. Is there a set number of blocks before difficulty begins increasing again or does it depend on hashpower?
