BitMEX Launches New Fork Monitoring Website to Keep Track of Bitcoin Forks 1

BitMEX just launched a website to make it easier to keep tabs on hard and soft forks on the Bitcoin blockchain.

According to a recent blog post, the research arm of BitMEX is sponsoring a new website, ForkMonitor.info, which is connected to 13 nodes of Bitcoin and its hard forks, most notably Bitcoin Cash.

The website will monitor many different aspects of the networks and their associated blockchains, with the ultimate goal of keeping track of these variables during forks to be “potentially useful in helping to detect unintentional consensus bugs.”

The article says that BitMEX is launching this new website in anticipation of an upcoming hard fork for Bitcoin Cash, which is expected to take place on November 15, 2018.

BitMEX Research took to Twitter to announce its new tool. In the comment section, the company continued to take shots at Craig Wright, whose infamous claiming of Satoshi Nakamoto’s identity has made him a pariah in the industry, for his part in the November 15 fork.

“[Craig Wright’s] (AKA “Fake Satoshi”) node, Bitcoin SV, is expected to fork off from the network onto a new chain,” the thread reads.

The Twitter thread went on to explicitly state that the focus of Fork Monitor will be to examine Bitcoin’s network, insinuating that the website’s highest priority isn’t necessarily looking to keep precise notes on Bitcoin Cash and its own forks.

Still, the planned date of the BCH hard fork has given BitMEX ample time to build a functional monitoring website that will eventually gather more hard data. At its current stage, Fork Monitor is something of a pilot project, albeit one that “will hopefully provide useful information to some stakeholders” in the future.
