Frequently asked questions

FAQ

What is Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a cryptocurrency that was created in August 2017, as the result of a hard fork with the main Bitcoin currency. Bitcoin Cash is virtually identical to Bitcoin, except for the fact that the blocks are significantly bigger in size. Bitcoin Cash aims to offer faster transaction speed and lower fee costs than Bitcoin.

What is the difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash is in many aspects a copy of Bitcoin, besides the fact that it aims to process more transactions in less amount of time. This way, Bitcoin Cash aims to compete with prominent payment services such as Visa regarding transaction volume.

Where Bitcoin has limited block sizes of 1MB, blocks in the Bitcoin Cash chain are 8MB. The main benefit of an increase in block size is that a larger amount of transactions per second can be processed.

One result of the exponential growth of interest in Bitcoin in recent years is that a demand to process more transactions each second has caused some difficulties. With a block size limited to 1MB, every second only around seven transactions can be verified. As the number of transactions grows, the time it takes before a single transaction is processed also increases.

This means that for payments being made with Bitcoin, it can take over 30 minutes for a transaction to be processed. With block sizes of 8MB, Bitcoin Cash is able to process op to 61 transactions per second, thereby significantly increasing the speed of the process.

What are the benefits of Bitcoin Cash?

As stated above, the main goal of Bitcoin Cash is to reduce the amount of time it takes to process a single transaction through its network compared to Bitcoin. In addition to an upgrade in transaction speed, the transaction fees will also decrease with Bitcoin Cash.

Since Bitcoin allows users to raise the fee that the miners of a block receive, a common strategy to prioritize a transaction is to simply increase the fee in order to incentivize miners. The higher the fee is you are willing to pay, the more appealing it will be for the miners of a block to let your transaction come through first. With a higher demand, this leads to rising fees.

Bitcoin Cash aims to lower the transaction fees by providing faster processing capabilities.

Can you make money with Bitcoin Cash?

As with any other cryptocurrency, it is possible to make a profit by trading BCH. With an active community behind the Bitcoin Cash project increasing its popularity, the price of the coin has increased significantly since its introduction in August 2017. However, Bitcoin Cash has shown to be volatile, which means that large profits could be followed by losses.

Bitcoin Cash is no exception to the uncertain future most cryptocurrencies have. It remains difficult to predict the exact path that BHC will follow in the future. This means trading with Bitcoin Cash always carries a degree of financial risk.
