Bitcoin Ore (BCO) is a less wasteful, more environmentally friendly and more egalitarian version of Bitcoin. Bitcoin Ore is based on Proof of Capacity (POC), rather than the wasteful Proof of Work (POW), and will inherit all of Bitcoin’s transaction history. We believe Bitcoin Ore is the best way of making Bitcoin fairer, faster and greener.

The Bitcoin network now consumes more than 18 billion kWh annually and this is constantly growing – vast amounts of energy are continually wasted solely for the purpose of sustaining it. To put this into context, if Bitcoin was a country it would rank 71st in terms of energy consumption, surpassing Iceland, Lebanon and Slovenia. Every Bitcoin transaction consumes roughly 175 kWh (approximately $17.5). In Ethiopia, the average availability of electricity is 65 kWh per capita per year. This transaction cost is 10 thousand times that of the Visa network.

Bitcoin is also very susceptible to ASICs, the expensive specialized hardware that has moved mining away from ordinary people and away from the original aim of decentralization. This has placed the majority of mining power in the hands of a select few.

Therefore, we think it’s time for a new direction. Bitcoin Ore is true to Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a cryptocurrency that is accessible to all, governed by all, and that works for all.

Volunteer benefitsAfter the snapshot, the temporary client will generate 16800 blocks. These will ensure circulation, and after this, the client will freeze and will not produce any further blocks. The income from these 16800 blocks goes into a fund to reward the early developers, to invest in further development, and for the upkeep of the fund. This is considered a voluntary donation from community volunteers (miners). Those who do not wish to support Bitcoin Ore in this way should refrain from mining. After this phase, the regular wallet will go online and mining will change to POC.

Announcing a new fork schedule for Bitcoin Ore

As previously announced, the main chain for Bitcoin Ore’s groundbreaking Proof of Capacity mining system will come into operation on January 28th 2018. From this date, mining will once again be open to all.

Taking into consideration the requirements exchanges have regarding the operational stability of the main chain, we have decided to wait for the main chain to become fully stable before initiating the fork. In addition, we will carefully consider which technology to use as the basis of Bitcoin Ore. In addition to classic Bitcoin we are also looking at United Bitcoin (UBTC), which is a strong alternative. We plan to announce full details of which solution we will use and the exact time of forking approximately one week before the January 28th scheduled fork.
 
As of December 30th, we had agreements with zb.com, aex.com, exx.com, and lbank.info regarding the issuing of Bitcoin Ore at the fork. In order to fulfil these agreements, the Bitcoin Ore main chain will issue Bitcoin Ore to users of these four exchanges at block height of 501949. Bitcoin Ore will be issued at a ratio of 1:1 for those holding Bitcoin at that time (excluding the overlap between now and January 28th)

We’d like to thank you all for your support of Bitcoin Ore so far. We are only at the beginning of our mission to make Bitcoin mining available to all again, and we are certain that Proof of Capacity is the future and will replace Proof of Work in time. We look forward to your continued support and the birth of a better Bitcoin!

I see what you did there Wink

Bitcoin Core, without the C of carbon.

But won't proof of storage capacity simply move the playing field to buying and producing more hard disks?

First time here.  Cheesy

Hoping to get coins from the fork. Looks dead, huh? Too bad. I guess the fork hype has died down along with the major correction of Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin, LOL just kidding.
