An Insight Into Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP)

While Bitcoin is the most famous and valuable cryptocurrency, its blockchain faces some challenges. In order to ensure the constant dominance of the currency in the market, the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP) was introduced. While most BIPs have different levels of potential for positive impact on Bitcoin blockchain, some of them turned out to be much more successful than others.

What is BIP?

Bitcoin is considered the first cryptocurrency and still remains the most successful crypto-project, but it also has its drawbacks. And in order to surpass it, as well as to occupy its niche in the digital world, innovators have created many new currencies, each of which has its own blockchain, designed to provide functions that are not available in Bitcoin. Eventually, one of these new currencies could potentially knock Bitcoin out of the first place.
That’s why the work on the Bitcoin Improvement Proposal began. BIP is a document where developers can submit a recommendation to fix a network problem. For example, after the introduction and implementation of BIP 141, also known as Segregated Witness (SegWit), the transaction rate on the Bitcoin network has increased, and commission fees have significantly decreased.
There are three varieties of BIP:

Bitcoin Lightning Network

The Lightning Network is a BIP proposal introduced in 2015 by Joseph Poon and Thaddeus Dryja. It aims to make Bitcoin scalable with the help of instant payments that are performed outside the network. These external channels form real Bitcoin transactions with the use of standard scripts that allow transferring funds without risk.
The Lightning network came into force thanks to the introduction of wallets with many signatures, where the parties can conduct an infinite number of transactions without having to store all the details on the blockchain. The only information recorded on the blockchain is the number of Bitcoins contained in the wallet and the percentage of contributions of the parties involved.
In addition to enabling instant transactions, the update also provides other benefits for the Bitcoin chain. For example, registration for micropayments, as well as cross-chain payments. Moreover, the update also promotes the implementation of the functionality of smart contracts on top of the blockchain.

MAST technology

MAST stands for Merkelized Abstract Syntax Tree, a technology that uses the ideas of the Merkle tree and the abstract syntax tree. This is a cryptographic tool that allows you to add large volumes of the hash to the data associated with transactions in the Bitcoin chain, due to their layout.
Three BIPs aim to introduce MAST into the Bitcoin network. The first is BIP 114, created by Johnson Lau, the developer of the Bitcoin core. The proposal shows how to increase network efficiency by introducing a new scenario, which he calls a merkelized scenario. The scenario reduces the need for large amounts of transaction data while maintaining greater privacy.
BIP 116 and BIP 117 were proposed by Bitcoin Core developer Mark Friedenbach and are intended to support MAST in a joint implementation. In BIP 116, he outlines the operation code, which allowed validation of the data without revealing the entire set. BIP 117 is called the Tail Call semantics, and in combination with the first, it led to a generalized form of MAST. The difference between the offers of Friedenbach and Lau is that the first supports all the scenarios that are currently used on the Bitcoin network, and the second supports only native SegWit.
The introduction of MAST has led to increased privacy, increased transaction speed, and the ability to include complex data sets, such as smart contracts. Besides, MAST allowed the Bitcoin network to process a much larger volume of transactions and, thereby, increased its scalability.

How many BIPs are there?

Since absolutely any developer can submit the idea of improving the network to the community, more than 300 of these ideas have already been accumulated, and not all of them have been and will be implemented in Bitcoin.

It has taken me a long time, but I finally committed ALL of my resources to BIP 101 - bitcoin xt

I run two full nodes and a small miner. I switched on full node to xt when all of this started, but now I'm fed up. I switched my miner back to slush's pool today and I updated my other node to bitcoinxt. Sometimes it just feels refreshing to do the right thing.
If you want to move your miners to slush's pool and show your support for 8mb blocks (aka: bitcoinxt, BIP 101), set up an account at http://mining.bitcoin.cz and use these mining addresses:
stratum+tcp://stratum.bitcoin.cz:3301 - General
stratum+tcp://us-east.stratum.bitcoin.cz:3301 - USA
stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.bitcoin.cz:3301 - Europe
Slush is re-enabling BIPB101: https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/slush-pool-to-re-enable-bip-bitcoin-mining-1448902761
If you want to set up bitcoixt, it's pretty easy to just remove bitcoind and run the binary linked here: https://bitcoinxt.software/
You can find more information about bitcoinxt blocks here: http://xtnodes.com/

Games4coins.com .. a new service to buy Steam keys with BTX

Games4coins.com .. a new service to buy Steam keys with BTX
Artwork by Desing Team - Bitcore BTX ® 2018
Steam is a digital distribution platform developed by Valve Corporation offering digital rights management1 (DRM), multiplayer gaming and social networking services. Steam provides the user with installation and automatic updating of games on multiple computers, and community features such as friend lists and groups, cloud saving, and in-game voice and chat functionality.
If you purchase a game that uses Steam from another website as a digital download, you'll be given a product key that you use to activate the game on Steam. A Steam key is a unique code that you will use to access the full game2.
Bitcore BTX originally a hybrid fork of Bitcoin, features a proof-of work consensus mechanism and implements all of the BIPs (Bitcoin Improvement Proposals) of the Bitcoin protocol3.
Bitcore: The most clever Bitcoin fork” -- Jimmy Song, Bitcoin Core Developer
More exchanges are listing Bitcore (BTX) and businesses are adopting it. One of the latest cases of adoption of BTX is in purchasing Steam Games Key from Games4Coins.
Games4Coins is a platform that you can purchase Steam product keys. Buying a game on Games4Coins is really simple. Once you have selected a game, you can quickly and securely pay. Why we say quickly and securely? Because a powerful cryptocurrency, Bitcore (BTX) is accepted as a payment coin at this platform (Figure 1). Moreover, as a crypto, they accept only Bitcore.
Figure 1. Bitcore accepted in Games4Coins
After the transaction is complete, you gain full access to your purchased game key which is 15 letter+number code that would look something like this: 8GMR2-Q20YJ-9PDKL. Once you get that, you go into your steam app on your computer and go to Games > Activate a product on steam. Then it will have a space for you to put your code.
Bitcore is one Cryptocurrency with a big Future”. Games4Coins Team
There are totally forty seven steam games and you can pay via Bitcore for all games. Moreover the prices are very cheap, between 0.44303596 BTX and 5.41588852 BTX (Figure 2).
Figure 2. Some samples for the steam games and their price
Consequently, Bitcore is one of the best cryptos in the market. It is also one of the fastest cryptos in the market when compared to Bitcoin, Litecoin and many other top 10 cryptos. Given that transaction speeds are a factor in the applicability of crypto in real-world business usage, it then follows that Bitcore’s long-term prospects are quite good, as blockchain technology continues to gain a foothold in business. This kind of integrations could open the doors for other major businesses to adopt BTX as a payment method, further adding to the intrinsic value of this crypto. The future of Bitcore (BTX) looks great.
