BCH Stress Testers Will Put Pressure on the Network in Two Weeks
On September 1, 2018, Bitcoin Cash ecosystem participants have plans to conduct a network stress test which will involve individuals and groups sending millions of transactions throughout the course of one day. With the BCH stress test day approaching soon, BCH proponents have been testing sending large amounts of small transactions at one time and have built tools that fan out hundreds of microtransactions at once.
Stress Testers Unite Hoping to Light Up the Bitcoin Cash Network with Millions of Transactions on September 1
In about two weeks, the Bitcoin Cash network will be tested for strength and reliability with the first of many stress tests planned. On September 1, 2018, BCH network participants plan on slamming the peer-to-peer system with a vast amount of transactions in a small period of time. Supporters of the community-driven stress test day are hoping to broadcast millions of transactions that day and some people have decided to practice early by lighting up the network with roughly 687,000 transactions in one day on August 1.
August 1, 2018, 687,000 Bitcoin Cash transactions.
Scale.cash and Memo Games
Stresstestbitcoin.cash promoters want everyone to participate on September 1st, so a few individuals and groups have created transaction broadcasting tools to accelerate the process, and even some Memo.cash games. For example, the Twitter handle @SpendBCH_io has created a tool called Scale.cash that lets people send thousands of on-chain transactions all at once in a very simple way.
