BCHN flipstarted - thank you to the community

by Bitcoin Cash Node Team
27 April 2020

Yesterday something quite unexpected happened for us at the Bitcoin Cash Node project.

Our Flipstarter campaign reached 100% with 12 days to go before the cutoff!

We would like to thank all those who donated to the Flipstarter.

Also, thanks to those who donated to us via our regular donation address and on through other ways, like tipping our project's blog post or individual developers.

And thank you to the Flipstarter team who helped us (and all other projects) tremendously to get here.

We truly appreciate it. THANK YOU!!!

Fundraiser complete

Some people have asked us how they can donate SLP tokens like SPICE to us.

We only have a temporary holding SLP address for that while we set up a multi-signature wallet, but you can now donate tokens to us at


Warmest regards to all who supported us so far - not only with financial donations, but also with active support (e.g. developing, testing, improving our documentation, giving us good advice or words of encouragement along the way). We believe that together we (not just our project, but all Bitcoin Cash projects) can achieve something new and exciting - a boost of innovation and scaling our ecosystem, both in adoption and technical capacity. Let's do it!

We'd like to give our thanks to the hard-working pools and miners who are supporting us by signaling on chain. This signal matters a lot to show that Bitcoin Cash can be open and diverse - not only in terms of number of infrastructure projects, but crucially at the network level where miners meet all other users.

If you run a pool or exchange, get in touch with us on our Slack or via other means (see our website) to ask questions and find out more.

Our real work kicks off in earnest now.

You can read up on our plans in our proposal, and we trust that you will remind us to stick to our aims and develop what we promised. Our lead maintainer will provide more details as the project planning is refined going forward and we engage further participants who will help us achieve our targets. We invite those who think they can assist us with some of our planned tasks, to get in touch!

For all those who wanted to pledge via Flipstarter but could not make it in on time, please consider supporting some or all of the other projects who are in this together with us to take Bitcoin Cash to the next level.

We are very encouraged to see a lot of them so close to reaching their goals too, and would like nothing more than to see all of them get the funding they need:
