It’s happening. The historical day is now just hours away and it’s expected to be most likely the busiest day bitcoin has everzwijn had ter its 8 years long practice.

All industry will likely zekering bitcoin deposits and withdrawals tomorrow. Certainly for bitcoin, but just to be super safe they may suspend eth and other currencies too. So you want to get everything ready today.

How to do so depends on your aims. If you are a medium to long term investor that doesn’t project to get burned te trading, then life is a bit effortless for you. Just pick a nice wallet, preferably a hardware wallet like Ledger or Trezor, otherwise a paper wallet or a light wallet like Jaax, and send your bitcoin there.

Then sit taut and love the voorstelling. Primarily, much of it will toebijten on the fork profesor. It’s not spil cool spil the one eth had. They had chains moving around, visualizing the split, but it should give you the necessary information and the basic stats.

Technically it should all go slickly. Hash-power is something to keep an eye on. Presently it’s at around 0.26% of the total bitcoin network, but the Bitcoin Contant chain doesn’t exist yet so wij’ll have to wait for the day and see how much hash it attracts.

It would most likely depend on price. So if you are a trader, speculator, want to make a point, or just think one coins is better than the other, then you very likely have fairly a big role to play.

Since deposits and withdrawals will be frozen generally 12 hours before 12:20 UTC and 12 hours after the fork, while trading will proceed ter the meantime, you might want to keep a petite portion of your bitcoins on an exchange while securely keeping most of it on a wallet where you control the private keys.

There are fairly a few exchanges that will list Bitcoin Contant trading. Te the westelijk, Openleggen is most likely the busiest, so they may have a field day. Albeit there are suggestions Gemini will list it too, but they have made no such definitive statement.

While Bithumb is a good place to be if you are ter South Korea. ViaBTC, one of the OKcoins, or Huobi if you are based ter China, with ViaBTC very likely your best bet.

Volatility is expected to be very high on the day and soon after spil everyone rushes to buy, sell, or spin flop like a two year old.

It is probable the two currencies will develop an inverse correlation on the day spil bitcoiners sell one and buy the other. With price movements likely prompt and acute both up and down most likely ter both currencies.

But, eventually, after some weeks or maybe by autumn, price should lodge, with the two developing a more long term relationship which may be a peg of sorts or may be an inverse correlation.

During the very first few weeks, however, everyone will very likely be watching to see whether there might be a spin of sorts. If you’re a holder, it very likely wouldn’t matter spil you hold both coins. If you are making bets, make sure to keep an eye on things and see if they are going your way.

Because there are many different opinions out there, but no one can predict the outcome except with hindsight. Bitcoin Metselspecie may rise even above BTC’s price or Bitcoin Core may maintain price dominance, or eth rises to overtake them both ter marketcap.

The combined market cap of the two, however, should eventually lodge higher than bitcoin’s current price because there may be more value te two different visions, free to go after their own roadmap te their own projects.

But whether that is indeed the case remains to be seen with just tomorrow left to go now before bitcoin’s very big day when the currency splits into two and all current bitcoin holders get an equal amount of both.

Unless you’re on Coinbase, te which case you’ll unluckily have to join the queue and wait ter line for the leegloop.
