BZEdge came into existence when BitcoinZ forked to Zhash (Equihash 144,5) around block 160.000. While the BTCZ fork was successful, the old chain remained active and unmaintained, so a group of developers and crypto enthusiasts adopted it and name it BZEdge. At block 200.000 BZEdge implemented another fork and changed the POW algorithm to Zhash in order to maintain ASIC resistance. At the same time, block time was reduced from 2.5 minutes to 1 minute to allow for faster transactions. This fork was not revealed to the public in order to prevent a repeat of the severe equihash attacks that happened when the first batches of ASIC miners wreaked havoc on many chains.
