What is Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a hard fork of Bitcoin that occurred on August 1st, 2017. It prioritizes on-chain scaling and utility as a peer-to-peer electronic cash system. Bitcoin Cash expands the size of blocks, enabling more transactions to be processed.

Basically, BCH was created to overcome two major challenges faced by Bitcoin scalability- by increasing the “block size”, BCH can process a maximum number of transactions per second when compared to Bitcoin. The other factor is Transaction Fee- Bitcoin’s transaction fee is around $1.31, whereas it is around $0.125 for Bitcoin Cash.

Initially, the coin was launched at the price of $250, and the next day, the price has increased $651 per coin. By the middle of the month, it already costs $900. By then Bitcoin Cash has begun routing its way to the top and managed to reach milestones.
