    • About Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

      In 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto published the famous white paper "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System". In 2009, he released the first version of Bitcoin software. In the following years, the Bitcoin network ran smoothly, and transactions could be quickly confirmed with low handling fees.

      However, from 2016 to 2017, Bitcoin became increasingly unstable and expensive. This is because the community failed to reach a consensus on improving network capacity. Some developers did not understand or agree with Nakamoto's plan. Instead, they wanted Bitcoin to become a settlement layer.

      By 2017, due to availability issues, the market value of Bitcoin had dropped from 95% to 40%. Fortunately, most of the Bitcoin community, including developers, investors, users and businesses, still believed in the original vision of Bitcoin - a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that could be used by people around the world with low handling fees.

      BTC was forked into two independent Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on August 1, 2017. Bitcoin Cash was born, and its total amount reached 21 million. The block size of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is 8MB, and the block size of Bitcoin (BTC) was decided to increase from 1MB to 2MB within six months on the same day. At that time, the person holding Bitcoin (block 478558) would automatically become the holder of Bitcoin Cash (BCH). The Bitcoin Cash network now supports blocks up to 32MB, and has been studying how to carry large-scale growth in the future.


      How does Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Work?

      The working principle of Bitcoin Cash is the same as that of Bitcoin from the technical level. Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin have a hard upper limit of 21 million assets. Both of them validate transactions through nodes and use the PoW consensus algorithm. PoW means that miners use computer capabilities to verify transactions and then earn BCH rewards according to the corresponding contributions.

      However, with its large block size, BCH has better operation speed and lower transaction costs than Bitcoin.

      In general, Bitcoin Cash is more suitable for transactions with small capital, such as buying a glass of beer. In order to meet the transaction needs of users with larger capital scales, Bitcoin Cash supports smart contracts and applications, such as CashShuffle and CashFusion.

      CashShuffle - a coin mixing protocol. BCH holders who use some wallets can enjoy this protocol. Its role is to shuffle your Bitcoin Cash with other holders before trading, so as to ensure that your transaction is private and will not be easily tracked. The reason is that Bitcoin Cash is a public ledger.

      Even so, for some other reasons, people will find that coin mixing is not reliable in real time. First, it requires users to trust third-party services. When users consider that encryption means autonomy or pseudonym, they will find some black humor in it. Mixing may require payment, which is not a good experience for those who regularly trade. Several jurisdictions have spoken with cryptocurrency mixers to inform them that funds entering such platforms are usually obtained through illegal activities.

      CashFusion does not mix transactions with other transactions, but puts users' BCH in a single large transaction filled with other CashFusion users. After that, it will send BCH back to your wallet - except that your transaction has been confused and combined with many other transactions, so that no one can track the path you hold (ideally).

      CashShuffle and CashFusion are two recognized applications in the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem, but in fact they are only the tip of the iceberg. BCH has inspired dozens of protocols and other projects to expand the technology and make it more accessible to all users.


      What is Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

      Like Bitcoin, bitcash BCH is also a cryptocurrency based on decentralization, peer-to-peer network and consensus initiative, open-source code and blockchain as the underlying technology. The relevant communities have had a long and fierce debate on the expansion of Bitcoin, with a time span of 3 years.

      The final result of this debate is that on August 1, 2017, Bitcoin Cash was hard forked at the block height of 478,558, and distributed according to Bitcoin 1:1, with a total amount of 21 million. The isolated witness was deleted, and the upper limit of the block was upgraded to 8M and then to 32M. Bitcoin Cash has solved the problems of high handling fees, slow confirmation and poor practicability of the old Bitcoin system through chain expansion, and realized the original intention of Bitcoin "peer-to-peer electronic cash". Bitcoin Cash is currently maintained by several different development teams. In daily life, more and more merchants accept BCH payment, and the recognition received by BCH is increasing.

      In addition to placing BCH in the Gate.io exchange to facilitate trading, BCH can also be placed in a crypto wallet.
