About Bitcoin Cash
Bitcoin Cash is a BTC hard fork with an increased block size. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a hard fork of the original Bitcoin (BTC) that occurred in 2017. Bitcoin Cash was created as an alternative for users who opposed the addition of SegWit2x technology to Bitcoin in July 2017. To address concerns over scalability and staying close to Satoshi's original vision of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash utilizes an increased block size with an adjustable level of difficulty. This function seeks to ensure speedy transaction verification as its user base increases.
