The team is working to ensure that every Bitcoin holder can claim their BTCU coins.
In order to protect users who store their BTC on exchanges that do not support the AirDrop from losing their BTCU during the launch of the network, the build-up will only take place on wallets of exchanges that publicly announce their support for the split and their participation in the AirDrop for further distribution of the received coins among their users.
This measure is taken due to the large number of centralized exchanges that the AirDrop can ignore, which will result in users of these exchanges not being able to receive BTCU and lead to the loss of coins due to users storing their BTC in the wallets of these exchanges!
The BTCU team will credit these coins to a dedicated storage wallet, which will be publicly published on the project’s official website. Users of exchanges who did not support the AirDrop can claim it back by providing proof of the BTC balance on their account at the time of the fork. A scholarship wishing to participate and distribute BTCU coins that it did not receive at the time of the fork can claim them by completing an application and contacting the BTCU team.
Bitcoin is expected to become the future of finance. However, Bitcoin carries over old problems that can jeopardize that amazing progression. The BTC Ultimatum (BTCU) leadership team discovered it and started to solve what was dragging Bitcoin behind it: the excessive energy consumption associated with mining, scalability and transaction anonymity, all while maintaining the useful features of Bitcoin.
BTCU’s next-gen blockchain, based on Bitcoin fork, has the potential to cover millions of hours of paperwork every year, hold government officials accountable through smart contracts, and provide transparency by capturing public records of all activities. Blockchain-based voting could improve citizen engagement by providing a high level of security and incorruptibility, allowing voting to be done on mobile devices.
