What is Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

So what exactly is Bitcoin Cash, and why would you want to get hold of it?

Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency that was created in late 2016 - by mid-2017 it was already becoming increasingly popular. Bitcoin Cash is actually a fork of the most well known cryptocurrency Bitcoin. BCH has its own blockchain and functions just like a digital currency.

Let’s dive into some of the features of Bitcoin Cash and look at the ways it differs from its parent currency, Bitcoin.

The differences between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin:

  • Bitcoin Cash has cheaper transfer fees, making transactions in BCH more cost effective
  • Bitcoin Cash has faster transfer times
  • Bitcoin Cash can handle more transactions per second than Bitcoin, allowing a greater number of people to trade in BCH at the same time.

Bitcoin Cash is cheaper and easier to use due to its core advantage of scalability. More people are able to perform transactions on the blockchain at a given time. BCH developers are constantly implementing solutions to make the blockchain more scalable, giving Bitcoin Cash greater potential for adoption and increased usage.

In terms of market value, Bitcoin Cash is indeed a valuable currency, with the price having reached as high as €2,600 euros. BCH currently sits at a healthy €351 euros, a steady increase after a period of fluctuation. Backed by seasoned developers and investors, with low fees, fast transactions, and a stable and secure blockchain, BCH is a smart investment for anyone looking to break into the profitable cryptocurrency trade.

What to do with your Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash was designed with not just trading in mind; its intended usage is to act as a peer-to-peer electronic currency. BCH can be used as a digital currency to make purchases ranging from online shopping, to purchasing other cryptocurrencies.

With near instant transactions and low fees, it is one of the most secure and widely used digital currencies in the world.
