Bitcoin Cash on the Market arrow_forward
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a cryptocurrency that claims to fulfill the original promise of Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer electronic cash system, as envisioned by Bitcoin creator and developer, the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin Cash was created as a result of a Bitcoin Core hard fork, splitting Bitcoin’s blockchain in two. At the time of the fork, Bitcoin block 478558, any holders of Bitcoin would also own an equal amount Bitcoin Cash. Rising fees on the Bitcoin network led a group of Bitcoin developers – including Bitcoin Cash figure-head Roger Ver – to push for increased block size limits, and thus, Bitcoin Cash was created as a solution.
