Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is one of the largest digital currencies in the world by market cap. The digital currency has been a great choice for many investors in the digital currency space. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was hard forked from Bitcoin (BTC) in August last year.
Since then, the digital currency has grown so strong and popular. During the massive rally in December last year, the digital currency tested its all-time high. However, the digital currency was also affected by the massive plunge in the crypto market.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has lost a great percentage of its value, compared to its all-time high. The bears in the market have brought down the value of the coin from thousands of dollar to hundreds. The digital currency is now trading below the $200 mark, which is more than 90 percent less than its all-time high.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) recently went through an upgrade, which didn’t go as planned. The upgrade led to a split in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network. The outcomes of the split are Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) and Bitcoin ABC.
This result in a war on the BCH network. The war was about which of the splits will maintain the original BCH ticker and symbol. However, the dust finally settled with Bitcoin ABC winning the war. Many have attributed the massive declines across the crypto market to the split on the BCH network. Even Bitcoin Cash (BCH) itself suffered a great loss.
