How to Buy Bitcoin Cash


What is Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

Bitcoin Cash came about during the great "block-size" debate of 2017. Bitcoin had some serious scalability issues and a segment of the community believed that the solution was to increase the individual block size of the Bitcoin blockchain. This segment forked off from the main Bitcoin blockchain on August 1, 2017, to create Bitcoin Cash with an 8 Mb block size as opposed to BTC's 1 Mb.

Quite like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash uses a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism, has a 10 min block time, and a max supply of 21 million. During the 2017 hard fork, every wallet holding BTC received an equal amount of BCH. Recently, the Bitcoin Cash protocol was split into Bitcoin SV (Bitcoin Satoshi Vision) and Bitcoin Cash with a 32 Mb block size.

What can you do with Bitcoin Cash?

Send Bitcoin Cash

Bitcoin Cash was strategically named to convey its main use case – conduct online transactions. The main use case of BCH is to allow users to conduct a simple transfer of value. Two parties can directly transact without having to go through an intermediary, provided they have compatible wallets

Hold Bitcoin Cash

Many people buy Bitcoin Cash for the profit expectations and benefit from the long-term gains. If you do have a "buy-and-hold" strategy, then we recommend transferring your coins to a cold hardware wallet like Ledger Nano. Having said that, CoinSmart has taken several security measures to ensure user fund protection. These include – mandatory 2FA, withdrawal confirmation emails, cold storage & BitGo user funds insurance.
