Major divide of the Bitcoin Cash cryptocurrency

16 Nov 2018

New version of Bitcoin Cash provides the blocks in the blockchain which are considerably bigger than the existing one.

Two competing chains are struggling for the majority of hashrate power and to emerge as a winning chain which will attract more users of Bitcoin Cash cryptocurrency.
