What is Bitcoin Cash

The Bitcoin blockchain network underwent a hard fork (or software upgrade) on August 1, 2017 which resulted in splitting of the original chain into two separate blockchains. The original chain is still called Bitcoin and transactions on the second chain are made in a new cryptocurrency called Bitcoin Cash. Any user who held Bitcoin as on August 1, 2017 got the equivalent amount of Bitcoin Cash on the forked Bitcoin Cash blockchain.

Current state of Bitcoin Cash

At the time of writing this blog, the total market capitalization of BCH is over $7 billion. There are currently over 16.5 million coins in supply out of the total 21 million coins which are to be mined. Check out real-time information and statistics about Bitcoin Cash on Coinmarketcap.
