What is Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCH) is a permissionless, decentralized cryptocurrency arising from a Bitcoin hard-fork in August 2017. BCH uses the same SHA-256d-based Proof-of-Work consensus system used by Bitcoin and, like Bitcoin, its total supply is capped at 21 million for mining. BCH introduces several improvements to Bitcoin’s underlying code, including raising the size of the block to 8 megabytes, a new algorithm for modifying difficulty, and Schnorr Signatures. The BCH protocol quadrupled its block size from 8MB to 32MB in May 2018. Sign up to the Swyftx crypto exchange to buy Bitcoin Cash in NZ.

The Bitcoin Cash blockchain underwent another hard-fork in November 2018 that resulted in Bitcoin Cash SV and Bitcoin Cash ABC. The BCH ticker was maintained by Bitcoin Cash ABC and continues to be referred to as Bitcoin Cash. Twice a year, BCH has protocol upgrades, and to implement these protocol upgrades, all node operators are needed. Bitcoin Cash ABC and BCHD are the nodes of BCH. To Buy Bitcoin Cash in New Zealand, simply sign up for a free trading account with Swyftx. Deposit NZD, select how much BCH you wish to purchase and select ‘buy Bitcoin Cash.’

What is the difference between Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

Since its founding, there have always been concerns surrounding Bitcoins scalability. The main issue with Bitcoin and the blockchain network it runs on is that it can only process 7 transactions per second. When compared to credit card giant, Visa, which can process up to 1,700 transactions per second, this is incredibly small. With ongoing debates about Bitcoins’ capability to effectively scale, Bitcoin Cash was developed as a result of a BTC hard fork. Bitcoin blocks are limited to 1 megabyte (MB) whereas Bitcoin Cash blocks can be as large as 32 MB. This increase in block size accelerates the verification process, thus making transactions quicker and cheaper than that of BTC.
