BuddyPress uses [5.8 or higher]( in the recent version.
stats(WordPress Version:5.8 or higher) show very very low number of users uses 5.7 or less.

I think we need to bump minimum WordPress version from (5.0 or higher) to (5.8 or higher)

These versions are adjusted with every release.

Keep in mind that backwards compatibility with older versions of WordPress or PHP is generally considered a good thing, and the upper & lower boundaries of what versions are necessary or acceptable are determined by what code bbPress depends on to function.

That means: bbPress working without errors on WordPress 5.0 is not a bad thing and costs us nothing, and when the day comes that bbPress code uses WordPress code that was introduced in a version greater than 5.0, that’s also the day that the readme values are changed.
