  • The Bitcoin Cash development team has announced that Bitcoin Cash will receive Schnorr signatures on November 15, 2019.

Roger Ver is the founder of Bitcoin Cash, a Bitcoin hard fork that was born last year. According to his own description, Bitcoin Cash is the true Bitcoin that Satoshi Nakamoto describes in his 2009 White Paper. Bitcoin Cash will receive a major upgrade on November 15, 2019.

Bitcoin Cash upgrade planned for mid-November

On November 15th at Block 1573819200, Bitcoin Cash will receive another upgrade and reach a milestone. Schnorr signatures are to be implemented and a further script that should facilitate the processing of data is said in the current article on Github.

Although Schnorr signatures were implemented some time ago, they could only be used with CHECKSIG and OP_CHECKDATASIG. The new update enables the support of OP_CHECKMULTISIG and the use of Schnorr signatures in all signature verification processes.

Network users were encouraged to update their node software to the latest version, version 0.20.0 or higher. If users do not comply with this request, the systems will no longer be compatible with the Bitcoin Cash network.
