BitPico to Launch Attack on Bitcoin Cash
The anonymous development team on Thursday claimed to have brought its malicious nodes onto the Bitcoin Cash mainnet, initiating a "stress test" against the fourth-largest cryptocurrency.
That announcement came roughly a week after the group emerged from a several-month hiatus to announce that they were in the final stages of testing for that attack, which they boasted would splinter the BCH network.
"The [bitcoin cash] attack has been started; it will continue to run as we work to amplify it over the coming months," the group stated. "We expect to have 5000 Bcash attack nodes in roughly 6 weeks and then we will multi-fork the chain. @rogerkver will now cry."
