The Bitcoin Uranium (BUM) Hard Fork is scheduled to take place on the New Year’s Eve – 31 December 2017.
It has the new proof-of-work algorithm we have come to know as Equihash. Pretty much all hard forks of Bitcoin utilize this algorithm right now, as it is always easier to copy existing code than to create something new entirely. At the same time, Equihash is ASIC-resistant, which is a logical feature for a project claiming to be a better Bitcoin.
Moreover, the BUM block rewards will be halved every 450 days and the total supply will be 21 million. It is good to see Bitcoin’s supply of 21 million be maintained, as some other airdrops will gladly increase this number. Bitcoin Uranium will seemingly be around long enough to undergo at least one halving, though there are no guarantees.
