What is Bitcoin Cash?
Bitcoin Cash is a peer to peer decentralized cryptocurrency that doesn't require third parties or banks. It is the result of the bitcoin blockchain and the cryptocurrency splitting in two 'hard-forked'. As bitcoin became more popular and more people began to use it, the volume of transactions soared meaning the network struggled to keep up, this meant bitcoin users had to wait hours for their transactions to go through.
History of Bitcoin Cash
Bitcoin Cash shares a history with Bitcoin, but as of August 1st 2017, it formed its own currency and blockchain. Bitcoin Cash is also known as 'Bcash', and the currency token is 'BCH' or 'BCC'.

Bitcoin Cash vs Bitcoin
The size of the blocks on the blockchain is the biggest difference between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin. Bitcoin's block size is 1MB, whereas Bitcoin Cash's is 8MB meaning more transactions can be processed in one block. The reason for this is to process bigger transactions, for smaller fees and more quickly.
Other significant differences between both currencies are that Bitcoin Cash has fewer exchanges and wallets compared to Bitcoin as they don't have as much acceptance. Also, the level of difficulty in mining Bitcoin Cash will vary depending on how many miners are active. This caused many bitcoin miners to migrate to Bitcoin Cash as it is faster to generate higher profits than when mining bitcoin.
