Is Bitcoin Cash (BCH)’s Reputation Toast After The Civil War?

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) received a serious blow to its reputation following the notorious hard fork. The price of BCH/USD tumbled double digits on major exchanges. If this hard fork had occurred in the same way as Bitcoin Cash (BCH) forked off Bitcoin (BTC), it might have been a non-event and people would then look at Bitcoin ABC or Bitcoin SV in terms of their own merits.
