Bitcoin Diamond is a fork of Bitcoin that occurred at block 495,866 on the Bitcoin blockchain. The fork resulted in a new cryptocurrency being created, called Bitcoin Diamond (BCD).
Bitcoin Diamond aims to provide a more private and decentralized version of Bitcoin. It does this by increasing the block size to 8MB and implementing new privacy features.
Bitcoin Diamond also has a lower total supply than Bitcoin. There will only ever be 21 million BCD, compared to 21 million BTC.
Bitcoin Diamond is currently trading at around $1.50.
It is not yet available on major exchanges, but can be traded on some smaller ones.
Bitcoin Diamond appears to be a well-thought-out fork of Bitcoin. It has a clear purpose and vision, and is backed by a strong development team.
However, it remains to be seen whether it will gain traction in the cryptocurrency community and become widely used.
