The hard forks of the Bitcoin Blockchain just keep on coming. The latest, Bitcoin Platinum, is set to take place around December 12, 2017 at block 498533.
Bitcoin holders who control their own private key at the time of the fork will receive an equivalent number of Bitcoin Platinum for free. This will provide another opportunity to increase your Bitcoin holdings by selling the free coins and using the proceeds to acquire more BTC.
Unlike some of the other forks, Bitcoin Platinum, will not have a pre-mine. They say that this will, "provide you more valuable currency without any possibility of fraud or centralization."
For more information you can visit the official Bitcoin Platinum twitter account and website btcplt.org which redirects to their GitHub page.
