About Bitcoin Cash

Bitcoin Cash is a fork of Bitcoin that seeks to add more transaction capacity to the network in order to be useful for everyday transactions.

How it works

The Bitcoin Cash blockchain is based on the original Bitcoin blockchain, but it has some distinct differences. A major one is an increased maximum block size of 32MB, compared to just 1MB on Bitcoin. Increased block size allows Bitcoin Cash to process transactions faster than Bitcoin, with lower fees and an increased per-second transaction capacity. 

Keep in mind

Bitcoin Cash is available via virtually all exchanges and is supported by PayPal. But remember that even though it was designed to be faster and cheaper than Bitcoin, that doesn’t mean that Bitcoin users have abandoned the original for a newer version.
