Bitcoin Cash is peer-to-peer cryptocurrency built using the Bitcoin Core blockchain technology. It came into existence through a hard fork of Bitcoin caused by disagreements among the community on how to solve Bitcoin’s scalability issues. The hard fork was initiated when some Bitcoin miners started mining blocks on the new Bitcoin Cash blockchain instead of the original Bitcoin one. Bitcoin Cash offers all the features of Bitcoin itself (public ledger blockchain technology, peer-to-peer transactions, proof of work mining) while also increasing block sizes to 8 megabytes in an attempt to improve the scalability of the network and the speed of transactions. The Bitcoin Cash token has two different ticker symbols: BCC and BCH. Both refer to Bitcoin Cash, but exchanges have not yet come to an agreement on which symbol to use.
