About Bitcoin Cash

Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency launched in 2017 by forking the Bitcoin blockchain and changed the size limit of blocks added to the blockchain. On August 1, 2017, Amaury Séchet released the first Bitcoin Cash software implementation. The new cryptocurrency was supported a few high-profile early bitcoin investors like Roger Ver who claimed that Bitcoin’s one-megabyte block size limit would inhibit its ability to scale and accrue value as more investors and users adopt cryptocurrency. Bitcoin Cash sparked a trend of creating new cryptocurrencies by forking the Bitcoin blockchain. Measured by market capitalization and active users, Bitcoin Cash is the largest Bitcoin fork.
