The team is working to make sure every Bitcoin holder can claim their BTCU coins.
In order to protect users who store their BTC on exchanges that will not support the AirDrop from losing their BTCU during the launch of the network, the accrual will only occur on wallets of exchanges that publicly announce their support for the fork and confirm participation in the AirDrop for further distribution of the received coins among their users.
This measure is being taken because of the large number of centralized exchanges that can ignore the AirDrop, which will lead to the inability of users of these exchanges to receive BTCU and lead to the loss of coins, as a result of users storing their BTC in the wallets of these exchanges!
The BTCU team will credit these coins to a special wallet for storing, which will be publicly published on the official website of the project. Users of any exchanges that did not support the AirDrop, will be able to reclaim it by providing proof of BTC balance in their account at the time of the fork. An exchange that wants to participate and distribute BTCU coins it did not receive at the time of the fork will be able to claim them by filling out an application and contacting the BTCU team.
Bitcoin is forecast to become the future of finance. However, Bitcoin carries over legacy issues that might endanger that stellar progression. The BTC Ultimatum (BTCU) leadership team spotted those and have set out to solve what was dragging Bitcoin behind: the excessive energy consumption associated with mining, scalability, and transaction anonymity, all these while maintaining Bitcoin’s useful characteristics.
BTCU next-gen blockchain, based on Bitcoin fork has the potential to cover millions of hours of paperwork every year, hold public officials accountable through smart contracts, and provide transparency by recording public records of all activities. Blockchain-based voting could improve civic commitment by providing high levels of security and incorruptibility that can allow voting to be done on mobile devices.
