An effort to create an alternative version of the bitcoin blockchain is officially moving ahead.

After running into roadblocks this morning, miners were able to successfully create a block on a new blockchain, called Bitcoin Cash, at roughly 2:14 p.m. ET today. The move effectively finds the miners breaking away from the main bitcoin network and forging ahead with a different technical roadmap.

The block in question was mined by mining firm ViaBTC, according to a Bitcoin Cash block explorer hosted by data provider BlockDozer. ViaBTC later acknowledged the finding on Twitter and WeChat.

All in all, the event came nearly six hours after block 478,558 – the point at which miners attempted to start the separation.
