Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a cryptocurrency which was created on August 1st 2017 as a hard fork of Bitcoin. Although technically very similar to Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash uses a larger block size which allows each block to hold more transactions. Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash hold a shared history before the two currencies diverged following the mining of block 478558. Before Bitcoin Cash was launched, it was available for futures trading from July 23rd 2017. All users who held Bitcoin in a compatible wallet on August 1st were also credited with an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash following the hard fork. The value of Bitcoin Cash has fluctuated greatly since its creation but to date BCH has never exceeded the value of BTC. High profile supporters of Bitcoin Cash include Roger Ver, a well-known Tokyo investor who supported the proposal to increase the block size which led to the creation of BCH.
