I Love Fork

One of the key takeaways from these forks is their similarities. At their core, BUM, BCP, and BTCS are all trying to solve Bitcoin's mining centralization by employing the Equihash algorithm. All of them will integrate replay protection, and as far as this research suggests, all of them will implement Segwit. These comparisons exclude Bitcoin God, because we don't know enough about its development to detail its specifications.

These technological redundancies are not the only similarities of interest, though. If we look at the Bitcoin Talk forums for BTCS and BUM, for instance, they all included copy and pasted information about the coin's goals and purpose. You can see this at the top of each forum with its subheadings, and you can see it at the bottom under each coin's FAQs. What's more, each forum was posted within a day of the other two: BTCS on the 24th of October, BUM and BTP on the 25th within the same hour.

And each one bears some form of Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan, as if in uniform echo from shouting down the same cultural well.

In our opinion, the copy-cat nature of these forums and the intervals between their postings are there. Couple this with the lack of clear information these projects give, and We are downright conspiratorial about all these forks.

Bitcoin Platinum has already been exposed as a scam, and I wouldn't be surprised if a few more of these forks were busted, as well. Super Bitcoin is the only fork that provides a team (minus Bitcoin God, with its one-man team of Chandler Guo), and on that note, only three of the proposed currencies have actual websites (LBTC, SBTC, BCP). All of these forks promise an airdrop of their currency into the wallets of Bitcoin holders, but I'm still unclear as to where you need to hold your Bitcoin to receive any of these forked currencies.
