OPEN BLOCKCHAIN-AND-FIAT-SPECIFIC LICENSE

Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal in the Software without restriction other than the conditions set out below, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions:
1. Usage Limitations. The grant to deal provided above is restricted to dealing in the Software only for purposes relating to one or multiple of the following:
- Purposes related to The Bitcoin SV Blockchain
- defined as the Bitcoin chain with the most SHA-256 Proof of Work accumulated, following block height #560000 with this hash: 0000000000000000035cb1baaf4f82d8358a8b9ed22aec52c2801a02b9c6f18f.
- Purposes related to The Bitcoin Blockchain
- defined as the Bitcoin chain with the most SHA-256 Proof of Work accumulated, following block height #1 with this hash: 00000000839a8e6886ab5951d76f411475428afc90947ee320161bbf18eb6048.
- Purposes related to Government (FIAT) money.
- Defined as any form of money issued by a government and declared a legal tender by a government.
- Purposes not related to money
- defined as any usage of the software that does not interact in any way with any form of money
In case of competing blockchain protocols, if the difference of their total accumulated Proof of Work is less than the required sufficient advantage, the license is valid on both chains, until one of them gains sufficient advantage in accumulated proof of work.
- Competing protocols are defined as cryptocurrency protocols originating from the same genesis block (or block with a specific height and hash, if such is specified in the above permission notice) and using the same proof of work algorithm.
- A sufficient advantage is an advantage of at least 1000 blocks with the difficulty of the latest block on the chain with more accumulated Proof of Work.
- The proof of work difficulty of a block is measured by the leading zeroes of its hash, where each extra zero is worth twice as much as the previous one.
- For example: A block with 4 leading zeroes is measured as 15 units of difficulty (1+2+4+8).
- The accumulated Proof of Work of a chain is defined as the sum of the difficulties of all the blocks in that chain.
