5 Introducing bchd - bitcoin cash in Go

yours.org posted by andythomas 25 days ago  

I've been wanting to see someone port the btcd full node implementation over to Bitcoin Cash for over a year now since it's a really well written implementation and Go is my favorite programming language. Doing so, however, is a pretty daunting task as you not only need to implement four different hardforks which change the consensus rules, but (ideally) you'd need to completely rip segwit out of the codebase and segwit affects around 5,000 lines of consensus code across more than 70 files. So I didn't really want to be the one to do it.
