Dubai, UAE. – The Bithereum (BTH) team is officially launching their peer-to-peer (P2P) fork of Bitcoin centered around “Proof of Stake”, the future of Ethereum mining and blockchain consensus. The launch of Bithereum will occur around December 28th, or at Bitcoin block number 555,555. Based on security, scalability, and functionality, this platform will ultimately lead the world closer to a fully-inclusive, global, decentralized currency.

“Bithereum has developed a platform that will enable a truly peer-to-peer currency while mitigating many existing issues in Bitcoin through its multi-pronged scaling approaches,” explains Bithereum co-founder Sachit Singh. “By bringing together the best aspects of both Bitcoin and Ethereum, we are confident our network will revolutionize Bitcoin mining via Ethereum’s technological roadmap and lead to the widespread adoption of cryptocurrency.”

Bithereum will be starting as a Proof of Work coin upon launch, but recognizes its various inefficiencies in the long-term and will focus on Proof of Stake implementation as a paramount objective; the team has already released a proof-of-concept model for the implementation to the public.

“Proof of Stake”, or PoS, will be the engine that gets this train moving. PoS is a transaction validation method that makes the blockchain network faster, more efficient and cheaper to run. The current Bitcoin mining method, known as “Proof of Work’” is very costly and wasteful in the long run. Not only are there very high up-front costs, but there are also the issues of excessive energy consumption, monopolization of mining efforts and a slow transaction speed.

Co-founder Scott Wade explains: “By augmenting transaction speed and reducing fees, ‘Proof of Stake’ mining will be an economical as well as an ecological advancement.”

“This new method will also lower the excessive energy consumption used by ‘Proof of Work’ mining. We are excited about the potential,” concluded Wade.

Furthermore, the network will be rewarding anyone who runs a full node, similar to how miners get rewarded for their work in every Proof-of-Work system. Full nodes are machines that store the entire blockchain and are a necessity for keeping the network up, however they are not incentivized to do so; Bithereum will address this issue with regular incentives.

Bithereum represents two chains in one coin; by hard-forking Bitcoin, and hard-spooning Ethereum to reward them with BTH, it will be the world’s first hard-spork, rewarding holders of coins on both chains. Ethereum Holders also have the option to claim their BTH prior to the launch on the website if they choose to.

Users who wish to see more about the platform are encouraged to go to the website and to start keeping up with the progress leading up to the launch.
