What is Optical Bitcoin (oBTC)?


Optical Bitcoin [oBTC] is a Bitcoin fork using oPoW, a proof of work algorithm for optical computers developed by PoWx (www.powx.org).

We originally published an experimental net in March https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5324899.0

The network has proved stable after the initial adjustment to the genesis block difficulty. We're excited to announce that going forward, oBTC is running as the mainnet, not an experimental net.

More about Optical Bitcoin:

What has been changed in the Bitcoin codebase?

The Proof of Work has been swapped for oPoW and the halving period has been doubled.

What is oPoW?

Optical Proof of Work, a hashcash derivative that is compatible with existing optical computers developed for AI.

Who is Behind PoWx?

The founders of PoWx are Michael Dubrovsky and Bogdan Penkovsky, however, there are many contributors. More details are available on Github: https://github.com/PoWx-Org/obtc-core/blob/master/README.md

Current State of the Blockchain


The chain was fair-launched on bitcointalk as a live experimental net with an empty genesis block and has been running for some time now with miners all over the world contributing hashpower. The current block height is 30111.

Project Goals


We outlined the value proposition of oPoW in our paper, blog posts, etc. over the last several years. The long-term goal is to shift the PoW ecosystem to low-energy computing, making the hashrate more resilient and enabling a much broader geographic distribution of mining. Please see www.PoWx.org

Looks great !!!
Optical mining seems to be a very good option which will save a lot of electricity and solve a lot of problems.

This looks like a rebirth of bitcoin.
I checked the teams behind the coin. It is worth to check this coin.
Thanks to the developer hard work and come with something innovative.

I am honestly impressed with the quality of this project, I have rarely seen a community so determined to send a cryptocurrency to the moon.

The real question is: Why invest and mine Optical Bitcoin (oBTC)?

My answer is very simple! Because it is the future of Bitcoin and probably of crypto-currency in general.

Many people are concerned about the ecological impact of crypto-currencies in general and... WOW, this one is really exceptional.

The developer team is doing everything to release a quality Optical Miner and the community is really putting in the work, it's great to see people working day and night for such an important project.

I'm proud and happy to be part of this growing community. Together we WIN.

Optical Bitcoin (oBTC) is going to solve a lot of problems for a lot of people.

If I had to bet on one cryptocurrency, this is it, 100%.

If you're still hesitating, stop. This is the future.

Liar team, refer to here. . After the mainnet was launched before, the team saw that everyone had mined some coins, so they changed the main chain and didn’t exchange it. The team with no credit would plummet after their mining machines were sold.

The mainnet just written at the beginning. . . Later, you modified it into a testnet. . It’s just a team of scammers, without credibility

That is absolutely false. This is probably the most fair mined coin you can find. The chain was reset right in the beginning to give everyone a fair chance to mine because of low difficulty. The difficulty was increased doing so.

Optical Bitcoin is stronger than ever.

And no mining machines were sold, they are still in development.

Are there nodes for synchronization? My wallet doesn't want to sync without them?
Unexpectedly, trading on 1 exchange and the price is already over $ 2.
Who is behind the development?
