Bitcoin : Risks of Wallets Accepting DSV Transactions
Bitcoin.com has announced intention for its wallet to run the new Bitcoin ABC v 0.18.2 client after the protocol upgrade and before one chain emerges as dominant. The new Bitcoin ABC client adds a controversial new OP_code (OP_DATASIGVERIFY). Bitcoin.com has stated that its wallet will add OP_DATASIGVERIFY as a default to all transactions sent from its wallet. By stating that all transactions will utilise OP_DATASIGVERIFY, there is a real risk of Bitcoin.com users losing their funds if the chain supporting OP_DATASIGVERIFY does not eventually survive. This same risk would apply to users of any other wallet that also runs the new Bitcoin ABC 0.18.2 client and includes OP_DATASIGVERIFY in their transactions as default after the protocol upgrade and before one chain emerges as dominant.
Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority.
