On February 20, Bitcoin Cash engineers held the second 2020 BCH developers’ meeting and the first since the Infrastructure Funding Plan (IFP) was added to the Bitcoin ABC version 0.21.0 client. Seven developers discussed new features that are coming after the May upgrade, but a majority of the conversation focused on the ongoing IFP discussion.
Second Bitcoin Cash Dev Meeting Convenes: Upgrade Features and the Infrastructure Funding Plan
During the last few weeks, BCH supporters have been fervently discussing the proposed Infrastructure Funding Plan (IFP). On Feb. 15, news.Bitcoin.com reported on Bitcoin ABC’s plan to add support for IFP within the 0.21.0 client release and the team published the implementation a few days later. Our newsdesk also covered Btc.top founder Jiang Zhuoer’s latest blog post about the IFP concept and opinions from other businesses and members of the BCH community. Following the announcement from Zhuoer, a group of well-known developers announced the release of a new Bitcoin ABC client, “BCH Node,” a project that plans to strip the IFP from the codebase. The Infrastructure Funding Plan has been a hot topic in Bitcoin Cash land, to say the least, and the Feb. 20th developers’ meeting focused on this topic.
