This means that the 51-percent attack that CoinGeek threatened to execute will not take place.

Changing camps

CEO of ( Jiang Zhuoer publicized his support of BCHABC and stated that the company is going to mine the aforementioned coin at the start of the weekend. He said that he wants to end the chaos that the BCH hard fork brought to life last week.
