Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Explained

What is Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

Bitcoin Cash is a Proof-of-Work blockchain and one of the most successful Bitcoin forks by market cap. While Bitcoin Cash forked from Bitcoin, the network is more scalable and lower trading fees. Since launching in late 2017, optimizations have seen the network more adaptable for use as a medium of exchange with comparatively lower transaction fees and scalability than Bitcoin. Despite philosophical differences, Bitcoin Cash retains technical similarities with Bitcoin. The same consensus powers it, and thus BCH can be mined with the same gear.
