Bitcoin Cash Is Approaching $1,000

Bitcoin Cash is making good ground this morning. Away from it’s blood brother Bitcoin, we are seeing the Bitcoin Cash fork make positive ground in what so far today seems to be a rather tepid morning for cryptocurrencies.

Let’s track back a few days and see how Bitcoin Cash has been performing. To provide context, Bitcoin itself has maintain around the $8,000 region in the wake of the mid-April market surge. Since the surge at the end of last week...

Litecoin (LTC) And Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Could Lose Their Positions Before 2019

Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are similar in a lot of ways. Both coins came into existence to compete with Bitcoin (BCH) as a better alternative. However, the past few months have clearly shown us that Bitcoin is still the unchallengeable monarch of the crypto world and any coins or projects that have nothing else to offer except for attempting to knock down Bitcoin will have a hard time surviving. I’m sure a lot of Litecoin fans will say, “Litecoin is addressing a different market” and will come up with different analogies like the famous analogy of Litecoin creator, Charlie Lee who compares Bitcoin to a busy highway with lots of traffic and Litecoin to a less crowded highway with low traffic. The problem with such statements is that they do not last for long. Six months back you ...

It is often compared to as a great alternative to Bitcoin Core. It was created by Bitcoin miners, after there was a number of disputes over limiting the number of transactions with Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash can provide a fast and cheap way of sending money globally according to its advocates. Ver has spoken to Bloomberg News, where he discussed the fact that Bitcoin Core is still up, even though it faced a decline after it hit a high in December last year. He said; “It’s up about 300 percent from a year ago so investors that have held for more than a year should be absolutely ecstatic. The volatility is half the fun of the ride, so it is...

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Is Starting To Lose Its Charm

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) became popular as the first hard fork of Bitcoin (BTC). Most BTC holders and hoarders received it for free but a large number of investors also paid to get Bitcoin Cash. The reason was obvious, back then some considered Bitcoin Cash as an improvement to Bitcoin and accepted it as a newer version of the coin. Roger Ver, the founder of Bitcoin Cash also owns Bitcoin.com and has significant influence in the crypto community. It is for this reason that early adoption and acceptance of this coin was comparatively easy. The reasons to invest in Bitcoin Cash (BCH) were pretty straightforward. The coin had a faster transaction speed than Bitcoin (BTC) and was a lot cheaper to buy. A large number of investors believed it could outperform Bitcoin, especially those who missed the B...
