What is Bitcoin Cash ?
Bitcoin Cash is a digital currency forked from the Bitcoin network in late 2017 with the goal to be
the real implementation of Satoshi's original white paper. It is intended to be the real “Peer to
peer electronic cash” as described by Satoshi Nakamoto.
How does it work?
Bitcoin Cash works almost exactly like Bitcoin since it’s based on the original Bitcoin core
software. The main difference is the block size limit. Bitcoin Cash changes the block limit size
with the goal of lowering transaction fees.
What are the features of Bitcoin Cash?
Fast Transaction Time
With large blocks, the Bitcoin Cash network can afford to validate many transactions in a relatively
short period of time compared to the original Bitcoin core implementation.
Low Transactions Fees
Big blocks prevent large transaction pools building up. With no congestion in the pools, fees are
low to validate these transactions from the miner’s perspective.
A change to the Bitcoin Cash protocol that makes old blocks invalid which were valid in the past.
Bitcoin Segwit transactions feature was implemented as a soft fork to the network.
Change to the Bitcoin Cash protocol that makes previously invalid blocks or transactions valid. The
BerkeleyDB bug activated an accidental hard fork to the Bitcoin network in 2013.
