How to buy Bitcoin Cash (BCH) with iDEAL

If you’re just getting started with cryptocurrencies, you’ve no doubt heard of Bitcoin, but you might still be wondering, “What is Bitcoin Cash?”

To put it simply, Bitcoin Cash is an offshoot of the original cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. The coins are not interchangeable, and although the blockchains that they are based on share a common history, they are now completely separate.

In the years leading up to 2017 when Bitcoin Cash split off from Bitcoin, some members of the Bitcoin community became dissatisfied with certain aspects of the technology, arguing that the blockchain was focused too much on being a store of value without giving due attention to its ability to be used as a medium of exchange. This disagreement led to some developers modifying the Bitcoin code in order to spin off their own blockchain with the aim of making a payment-focused cryptocurrency. Thus, Bitcoin Cash was born.

Today, Bitcoin Cash is a strong cryptocurrency with its own devoted development team and user base and a market capitalization in the top 5 cryptocurrencies. What better way to buy a cryptocurrency designed to be used as easily as cash, than with a payment system easier than any other? With iDEAL, you can have Bitcoin Cash in your virtual wallet in mere minutes.
