Bitcoin Cash is peer-to-peer electronic cash for the Internet. It is a continuation of the Bitcoin project, based on the Bitcoin blockchain ledger, offering peer-to-peer digital cash. Upgraded consensus rules allow it to grow and scale. It is fully decentralised, with no central bank, and requires no trusted third parties to operate. It has low fees and fast confirmations, helping to make it popular amongst users, merchants, businesses and investors. Bitcoin Cash immediately raised the block size limit to 8MB as part of a massive on-chain scaling approach. There is ample capacity for transactions. Responsive Proof of Work (PoW) difficulty adjustment allows miners to migrate from the old Bitcoin chain to the new chain, while providing protection against excessive fluctuations in computing power.
