What Is Bitcore?

What Is Bitcore?

When people conduct an online search for Bitcore, they will come across two entirely different products. The one we are looking at here is the Bitcore cryptocurrency, which is known as BTX across trading platforms. It is a new cryptocurrency which offers regular airdrops, even though it aims to become the world’s number-one payment coin in the future. Surpassing Bitcoin or any of the established currencies will be quite challenging, though.


Even though Bitcore positions itself as a state-of-the-art cryptocurrency, very few people are actively concerned with this project, by the look of things. It is still a relatively new and unknown currency, even though there are regular airdrops taking place. New coins are handed out free of charge every single week, which should get BTX into the hands of as many people as possible in the long run.


For a currency launched in April of 2017, there has not been too much buzz about Bitcore. This is mainly because the technical aspects of this currency are not exactly unique, even though there are some interesting nuggets. With 21 million coins and a 10 MB block size, Bitcore is certainly worth keeping an eye on. Its total block size is also less than 300 MB, which is rather peculiar. Plus, it supports Segregated Witness, which is a positive thing.

What will make Bitcore stand or fall is whether or not it offers unique features. The way things look right now, there is nothing that really stands out about Bitcore, as there are no smart contracts, innovative features, or blockchain-based projects worth keeping an eye on. It does use a completely different mining algorithm and support up to 48 million transactions per day, but that won’t matter much if only a few people use it. It also has no replay protection to speak of, as the developers claim it is not needed in the slightest.

One feature which may be of interest to Bitcore enthusiasts is that users have the option to control the address from which coins are sent. Moreover, they can also manually determine which address should receive the change amount of every transaction. It is a nice addition to the ecosystem as a whole, even though it’s not necessarily something that will catapult Bitcore to the number-one spot in cryptocurrency.


For now, there are no active use cases for Bitcore as a currency. It is an investment vehicle for those who firmly believe this project has a future, but there are no merchants officially accepting BTX as payment. It is unclear if this situation will change in the future, but for now, there is no reason to purchase BTX tokens if you want to pay for goods or services.


A project such as Bitcore can only thrive if its developers keep their eye on the prize. According to the official roadmap, the first hardware wallet supporting BTX is just around the corner. The native platform will support direct purchases and sales of BTX in the future, and the merchant network will be expanded throughout the rest of the year. Bitcore’s developers have some rather bold plans, such as raffling off a car and running TV commercials. Whether any of this will actually happen is a different matter altogether.

The Merkle
BTX token


Using the bitcoin logo in a different colour. Using the same name with 2 different letters as Bitcoin.
Making marketing material comparing Bitcore to Bcash, BTC and other forks, its clear they are ´´pretending´´ they are a fork as well, without actually saying they are or arnt.

Its an embarrisment to the cryptocurrencies that this coin wasa top 100 coin in January.
2 of my Noob Crypto buddies are heavily invested in this SHITcoin since 3$ and it honestly hurts me that they have earned a lot of money and see this as a viable crypto.

This project is the embodyment of the speculative bubble cryptocurrencies are in. There is NO. WAY. this should have a market cap of approx 250 million dollars.


fully agree on that, i wasn´t even able to find a whitepaper :thinking:


where did you found it?
