  1. New links and images added to the first page. More updates are coming soon!
  2. Over the last few days BStash Hash has seemed to settle around 5.3 Eh/s! http://explorer.bstash.org
  3. Bitcoin Stash Merged Mining Guide Overview Bitcoin Stash is a merge mineable cryptocurrency that utilizes SHA256 for its mining algorithm. This means that it can be merge mined with other SHA256 coins like Bitcoin an Bitcoin Cash. Merge mining is a process where a miner is able to mine multiple cryptocurrencies at the same time. All that is required for a miner is to add 48 bytes of data to the coinbase of the parent block. We will have a private testnet testing phase beginning at 11/4/18. On 11/4/18, miners will have access to Bitcoin Stash binaries (with only testnet capabilities available). They will be able to merge mine on the testnet by following the below instructions. A sample code implementation is provided in bitcoinstash_mergemining_sample.py. Instructions Follow the step belows to merge mine on Bitcoin Stash. Sample code implementation is provided in bitcoinstash_mergemining_sample.py. 1.Use RPC call getnewaddress() to get a new address for Bitcoin Stash (this will only need to be done once) 2.Call RPC command createauxblock() with address obtained from step 1). This will make a Bitcoin Stash block with a coinbase payment to the address. 3.From the JSON output of createauxblock(), use 'auxcoinbasedata' to obtain the data that must be inserted into the script sig of the coinbase in the parent block. To understand how this data is constructed, read the 'Constructing the Auxpow Coinbase Data' section below. 4.Start solving the parent block until you meet the encoded target threshold specified by the 'bits' field in the JSON output of createauxblock(). 5.If the parent block meets the target as defined step 4, construct the auxpow header data. Submit the auxpow header data using RPC command submitauxblock() with first argument being 'hash' from output of createauxblock in step 2), the second argument is the hex string of the auxpow data. Instructions on constructing the auxpow data is shown below. If a valid auxpow header data was submitted, the merge mined block will be submitted on the Bitcoin Stash network. Constructing the Auxpow Header Data Auxpow header data is extra data attached to the BitcoinStash block header that links the block to the the parent block. It is composed from the below data. Serialized coinbase transaction + Hash of the parent block (32 bytes) + Merkle branches (can be 0x00, if only transaction in block) + Index in the merkle branch (4 bytes, must always be \x00\x00\x00\x00) + Chain Merkle branch (4 bytes, can be 0x00, if no other child chain) + Index in the chain merkle branch (4 bytes, can be \x00\x00\x00\x00 if no other child chain) + Serialized parent block header Constructing the Auxpow Coinbase Data The auxpow coinbase data is data inserted into the parent block's coinbase to link the parent block to the BitcoinStash block. It is composed from the below data. Merge Mining Header (4 bytes, must always be \xFA\xBE\x6D\x6D ) + Root hash of Merkle Trie containing child chian (32 bytes, set to hash of Bitcoin Stash block if no other child chain) + Merkle Trie Size, (4 bytes, set to 1 if no other child chain) + Nonce, the nonce and the chain id of the child chain determines a pseudo random slot in the chain merkle trie (4 bytes, can be set to anything if no other child chain) + Parent Chain Id (4 bytes, set to 210 if Bitcoin is the parent block 209 if Bitcoin Cash is parent block) Stand Alone Mining Stand alone mining (mining Bitcoin Stash only without using its merge mining capabilities), will also be possible through the standard RPC call getblocktemplate.

  4. UPDATE: v0.0rc3 https://github.com/bstash/BitcoinStash/releases This release fixes a major bug where nodes would fail the initial block download. Update is required for your node to stay in sync when offline for a long length of time or when downloading the blockchain for the first time.
  5. No problem! Bitcoin Stash explorer is here! 🚀🚀 http://explorer.bstash.org/
  6. ⚡ Bitcoin Stash wallet binary files are now available! ⚡ Download links (Windows & Linux): https://github.com/bstash/BitcoinStash/releases Instruction: Uncompress the downloaded zip file (.tar.gz file for Linux) and double-click on bitcoin-qt file under the bin folder to run the Bitcoin Stash GUI Wallet. Mac version files are coming in the next few weeks!
  7. ⚡⚡ ATTENTION MINERS! ⚡⚡ Now you can start mining Stash coins! Please follow merged mining guide on our GitHub page: https://github.com/bstash/BitcoinStash-MergeMining-Guide Feel free to mine as many Stash coins as you want! We will try to list Stash on many exchanges soon. 😉
  8. Don't count BStash out in the hashwar, we are at half of Bitcoin Cash ABC hash rate and growing. Stay tuned for exchange support and more important development announcements.
  9. UPDATE Due to some techinical issues, we decided to release Stash wallet some time during the next week. We will make an announcement again once everything's ready. We appreciate your patience.
  10. Officially Hard Forked! As of approximately 7:30 PM GMT on November 15th, 2018, we are pleased to announce that Bitcoin Stash has officially hard forked from Bitcoin Cash! With each passing day, as the true value of cryptocurrencies become better understood, the threat of 51% attacks on the Bitcoin Cash network becomes more imminent. Corporate and private interests, combined with greed and incompetence has corrupted the security of the chain. Bitcoin Stash will provide the solution through merged mining with both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. Additionally, Bitcoin Stash will offer replay protection to protect our chain against replay attacks. Bitcoin Cash has imploded into a hash war between Craig Faketoshi Wright’s Bitcoin SV and Bitmain’s Bitcoin ABC. Faketoshi plans on executing a 51% hash rate attack on the ABC chain, mining empty blocks and wreaking havoc. We are not certain when or how long this attack may occur, but we do believe it is imminent. Bitcoin Stash stands against the block size increases implemented by SV and the fraudulent activities of Wright. Additionally, we believe that the leadership of Bitmain, Roger Ver, and Bitcoin ABC can no longer be relied upon, as they were the ones who welcomed Faketoshi with open arms. While Bitcoin SV was plotting their takeover, the leaders of Bitcoin ABC were busy going to boat parties with Faketoshi and developing useless ideas like tokenization platforms and instant transactions. At this point, it seems like almost no one knows what will be the result of the Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC drama. No matter what happens with either of those, Bitcoin Stash will have a purpose since our merged mining will provide more incentive for miners and increase security and decentralization with a higher hash rate. Moreover, Bitcoin Stash should not encounter double-spending issues, as we will not be supporting 0-confirmation transactions. As a result, Bitcoin Stash is here to stay and will continue to be useful in the future with or without Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash holders prior to our fork will be able to obtain an equivalent amount of Bitcoin Stash if they hold the private keys to their BCH wallet. Future exchange support will also be a continual focus for our team moving forward. Please visit our website https://bstash.org to find further instructions on claiming or mining Bitcoin Stash. Our source code is available at https://github.com/bstash/bitcoinstash with binaries to follow. Also, please join our Telegram, follow our Twitter (@BitcoinStash), and continue checking our website for updates! Feel free to reach out to any of our official accounts with any questions. Happy Fork Day! Stash team
  11. Bitcoin Stash has forked from Bitcoin Cash on block 556767! There may be some network problems and the nodes may have trouble syncing. We can thank Faketoshi/Satoshi’s Shotgun for this. We will work relentlessly to resolve these issues over the next several days!
  12. UPDATE: We're experiencing a little delay. Stash wallet will be available for download during the next week.
  13. Bitcoin Stash Bitcoin Stash is a secure and decentralized cryptocurrency, hard forked from Bitcoin Cash. Stash wallet will be available for download during the next week!
  14. Stash will be released in the next 24 hours! Please check our website soon! 😎
  15. ⚡ MINERS & MINING POOLS WANTED ⚡ We are looking for miners/mining pools to test our merged mining with Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash. If you're interested in, please send us an email: [email protected]
