Last weekend (27 & 28 oct) BTC.com organized world’s first Bitcoin cash Hackathon at Rockstrat offices in Amsterdam with great speakers like the Bitcoin cash main developer Amaury Sechet and €3.5k in prize money in BCH which will have a hard fork next month. Why Bitcoin Cash instead of the “normal” Bitcoin core? There’s a scheduled hard fork coming up, what does it mean and why do they do it every 6 months? What are the projects participating in the hackathon?
