Bitcoin Cash (BCH.X): will the bull run continue?

1:04 pm ET, 23 Apr 2018

Bitcoin Cash has surged almost 80% in the last 7 days. There are speculations in the Bitcoin Cash community that this trend will continue for a notable period of time. 

Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency that forms a decentralized payment system. It was hard forked from Bitcoin on August 1, 2017.   During the fork, a bitcoin owner possessed the same number of Bitcoin Cash units.

Why has the Bitcoin Cash price increased so rampantly? Here are some key developments to be aware of:

  • Another Bitcoin Cash hard fork is going to occur on May 15.
  • The rise in demand for Bitcoin Cash occurred partially because Bitpay, a global bitcoin payment service provider, incorporated additional features in its merchant services solutions.
  • An additional security has been enabled for the coin through the use of new transaction signatures along with a difficulty adjustment algorithm.
  • Bitcoin Cash received a lot of infrastructure support from wallet providers and major exchanges after its hard fork last August.
  • A social media system known as Memo has been powered by Bitcoin Cash micro-transaction. This system lets its users follow various profile fields and maintain the stability of the content that is being shared through the use of BCH chain.
  • To sustain digital scarcity, the mining operation Antpool has announced to burn 12% of BCH. 
  • Compared to other blockchain networks, Bitcoin cash networks are cheaper—and that makes them quite enticing.
