Bitcoin Classic version 1.2.0 is now available from;
This is a new major version release, including new features, various
bugfixes and performance improvements.
This release marks a change in strategy for Bitcoin Classic, moving from the
very conservative block size proposal based on compromise to one where
Classic truly innovates and provides a long term solution for the market to
choose and leave behind the restrictions of the old.
The most visible change in this version is the decentralised block size
solution where node operators decide on the maximum size.
Bitcoin Classic is focused on providing users a way to get onto the Bitcoin
network using a high quality validating node for a large set of use cases.
Classic presents top notch quality processes in this release, to help anyone
We include in this release various projects with the beta label. People who
want to use the Classic node as an on-ramp to Bitcoin will find them
interesting. These projects will need to be enabled in the config by those
that want to test them.
