Bitcoin Cash contentious hard fork, ETH Devcon 4 videos up, SpaceChain launches first fully functioning node in space!

The Ethereum Devcon 4 talks are all posted on SlidesLive.

ZCash is already discussing future updates and feature goals to the ZCash protocol entitled “Blossom” after their successfull Sapling upgrade.

Bitcoin Cash will be undergoing a contentious hard fork in 2 days. The likelihood of the outcome will be a split chain (Same thing experienced by Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash over a year ago). This will not affect Bitcoin (BTC), only Bitcoin Cash (BCC/BCH) users.

SpaceChain launched their first fully functioning node into orbit on October 25.
