Bitcoin Cash (Bcash) fulfils the original promise of Bitcoin as "Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash", where merchants and users are empowered with low fees and reliable confirmations.
It is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain ledger, with upgraded consensus rules that allow it to grow and scale. All Bitcoin holders as of block 478558 are owners of Bitcoin Cash. All are welcome to join the Bitcoin Cash community as we move forward in creating sound money accessible to the whole world.
Any transactions after the August 1st ledger split are separate between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, meaning any Bitcoin acquired after the split does not include Bitcoin Cash, and Bitcoin Cash does not include Bitcoin. New features compared to Bitcoin include on-chain scalability, improved transaction signatures, emergency difficulty adjustment and decentralised development.
