How To Fork Bitcoin

Forking bitcoin is one of the best methods of improving the technology of the blockchain and can be immensely profitable when done correctly.

Already, a number of bitcoin software forks exist in circulation today. In a similar manner as how the Linux operating system has undergone many forks of its original source code to produce newly improved, and specialized versions of the software.

Hard forking bitcoin involves introducing new technical parameters at a specific block within the network and running a full node to propagate blocks to this new transaction chain. Because a newly forked chain is navigating away from the main bitcoin blockchain, both the collective hashing power mining the newly forked chain and mining difficultly parameter will be magnitudes less.

These circumstances combine to create a development environment that is very friendly to experimentation and tweaking the existing technical components.

Tutorial: How To Fork Bitcoin


The How To Fork Bitcoin tutorial is a video and written instruction on how to initiate a hard fork of the bitcoin network and begin mining a new chain of transactions.

Recommended before beginning the course:

  • Willingness to channel existing beliefs and assumptions.
  • Knowledge of software engineering and C Level computer programming languages.
  • Understanding of the bitcoin payment system and how network nodes contribute their hashing power (proof of work) to form a blockchain of transactions.

In this tutorial, we will be required to download a full copy of the exiting bitcoin blockchain. Therefore, it is necessary to allocate at least 300 gigabytes (GB) of hard drive space.

Introducing The Bitcoin Chip From Diginomics Corporation

The Bitcoin Chip™


Mobile Bitcoin Wallet On A SIM Card

The Bitcoin Chip is a full blockchain node running on a mobile SIM card which allows the user to store, receive, and authorize bitcoin payments.

The private key of the user is stored on this mobile storage device while allowing secure network connectivity through IPv6 communication protocol enabled by a hard fork of the original bitcoin ledger. This new, forked chain allows the user to not only communicate through a secure IPv6 protocol (not connected to the www “World Wide Web”) but acts through a virtual private network.

Several of the product benefits of The Bitcoin Chip include:

  • Secure identity authorization.
  • Broadcast transactions and receive payment from a mobile device.
  • Store information on the public blockchain which can only be decrypted by your private key.

The Bitcoin Chip comes in the form of a hardware wallet SIM Card which can easily be fitted to any modern smartphone. SMS-based text messaging and VoIP can be accessed on-chain by applications built ontop of the protocol layer.
