It would improve the security of nodes if they automatically tracked BCH and other SHA256d PoW systems (not necessarily blockchains).

Then the node could have a true sense of the full global mining hashrate (which could be switched to an attack on Bitcoin at any time, even if not currently mining Bitcoin), and adjust its security predictions appropriately.

@lukedashjr What's the current ratio of bitcoin fork mining hash rate to bitcoin's?

@raucao I assume no alerts would be triggered right now.
