Bitcoin Rhodium (BTR). Have you heard of it? Possibly not, and it's no wonder. We've already had Bitcoin Cash, Gold, Diamond, Private, Atom, Top, Hot and even Pizza for crying out loud! The number of forks and sporks has truly reached the absurd stage, so why on earth would anyone care about, let alone remember Bitcoin Rhodium?
While at first glance this seems to be a fair enough reaction, a closer inspection of Bitcoin Rhodium reveals that it has some special properties that set it apart from the list of Bitcoin 'Whatevers' mentioned above. To start with, it not a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain, nor is it a spork of Bitcoin and another altcoin. Instead, Bitcoin Rhodium is an airdrop, awarded only to those who signed up to claim it, and not to all Bitcoin holders. In addition to that, the developers have built a brand new blockchain. This gives BTR a uniqueness advantage over the forks.
Next, and this is the killer app in my opinion, the supply of Bitcoin Rhodium is capped at two point one million (2,100,000). This is opposed to the circa twenty one million coins made available by the vast majority of Bitcoin forks, and the whopping two hundred and ten million units of Bitcoin Diamond. This gives BTR a scarcity advantage over the forks.
Furthermore, the team members, including the developers behind Bitcoin Rhodium, have chosen to remain anonymous. In all communication on their Discord channel and social media sites, they have opted to use pseudonyms. Doing so removes the single point of weakness factor, created when there is a central, known figure behind a cryptocurrency. This gives BTR a security advantage over the forks.
Add to this, enhanced privacy via two anonymization levels and a partnership with the rhodium precious metal market, and you've got a powerful new crypto asset.
Bitcoin Rhodium is set to launch shortly after the final claim period, which ends on September 29, 2018. Finally, the secret will be out and Bitcoin Rhodium will take the crypto world by storm!
