Can you explain what Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is?

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a digital currency that was born out of a hard fork from Bitcoin in 2017. Its primary difference from Bitcoin lies in its protocol upgrade aimed at fixing on-chain capacity. Unlike Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash does not use Segregated Witness (SegWit) as a soft fork. Instead, it mainly relies on hard forks for upgrades while maintaining the original economic rules of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Cash aims to restore the inherent qualities of money present in the original Bitcoin software. Over the years, these features were gradually omitted from Bitcoin Core, resulting in high transaction fees and slow transfer times. The upgrade to Bitcoin Cash addresses these issues by increasing the block size limit from 1MB (as in Bitcoin Core) to 8MB, enabling quicker, more affordable transactions, providing a better user experience overall.

Who created Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash emerged out of the community of Bitcoin developers and miners on August 1, 2017. It was their response to the perceived drawbacks of Bitcoin, especially regarding the problem of scalability. They carried out a hard fork, which resulted in a new version of the original Bitcoin Core software — now known as Bitcoin Cash.

How does Bitcoin Cash work?

What Makes Bitcoin Cash Unique?
