A BCH Innovation Testnet
NextChain is a testnet for BCH innovation. It is for experimentation with novel features that are or could become candidates for inclusion into Bitcoin Cash.
Features on this testnet exist in various states of maturity. Although we encourage readers to read about all the ideas in NextChain, and contribute to their development, the following features are the best current candidates for BCH adoption, based on their maturity and BCH culture:
This testnet currently implements the following features:
Large Integer operations (via BigNum)
Transaction Introspection (via OP_PUSH_TX_STATE)
Script Covenants (via template scripts)
Miner enforced fungible tokens (via group tokens)
Miner enforced non-fungible tokens (via group tokens)
Merkleized Abstract Syntax Trees (MAST) (via OP_EXEC)
Modified proof-of-work algorithm (nextPOW)
Topics in this section are conceptual only at this point.
