Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Bitcoin Cash is a fork of Bitcoin that prioritizes onchain scaling and utility as a peer-to-peer electronic cash system. The official release date was 1 August 2017. One of the most significant changes from Bitcoin to Bitcoin Cash is the size of the coin. Previously, Bitcoin’s 1MB limitation caused transaction delays, so Bitcoin Cash increased the potential block size to enable a greater number of transactions and help the cryptocurrency scale as it grew and competed with more traditional cryptocurrency platforms.
