At the time of the software upgrade (also known as a fork) anyone owning bitcoin was also in possession of the same number of Bitcoin Cash units.[19][16] The technical difference between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin is that Bitcoin Cash allows larger blocks in its blockchain than Bitcoin, which in theory allows it to process more transactions per second.[20] Bitcoin Cash was the first of the Bitcoin forks, in which software-development teams modified the original Bitcoin computer code and released coins with “Bitcoin" in their names, with "the goal of creating money out of thin air."[21] In relation to Bitcoin it is characterized variously as a spin-off,[5] a strand,[22] a product of a hard fork,[23] an offshoot,[24] a clone,[15] a second version[14] or an altcoin. On 1 August 2017 Bitcoin Cash began trading at about $240, while bitcoin traded at about $2,700.[16]


“The arguments have devolved over three or four years of bitter debate, the principles are real and they are important to preserve, but a lot of the drama has nothing to do with principles anymore. A lot of this debate is now more about hurt feelings. It’s about bruised egos. It’s about things that were said that can’t be unsaid, insults that were exchanged, and personalities and ego.”


第二次矛盾,当萨利姆和贾马尔被诱拐到了马曼所开的“孤儿院”时,萨利姆凭借自己的勇敢和聪慧,成为了孩子王,也同时被马曼看上,选择为他自己的爪牙。在萨利姆把一群流浪儿管理得服服帖帖的时候,他与广大的孤儿产生了不可避免的矛盾,而与贾马尔的矛盾也是必然的。编剧在设计他们之间的矛盾时,使用了拉提卡,把她放到了矛盾的冲突点和制高点上,使拉提卡再一次成为贯穿主线的人物。萨利姆想要把婴儿交给拉提卡带,说:“拉提卡,今天你负责带他”,拉提卡说:“我不带”,这时候,萨利姆的权威受到了质疑,作为一个小头头,他一定要让拉提卡服从,于是他说:“抱着吧,这是为你好,有小孩可以要双份。”冲突产生了,萨利姆的命令和拉提卡的意愿产生了矛盾,这时出面的,就是既喜欢拉提卡,又是萨利姆弟弟的贾马尔,他在这两人中, 始终保持着微妙的关系。贾马尔说:“她说了不想带。”当时的贾马尔,决对不是萨利姆的对手,而且萨利姆也必须以牺牲弟弟的利益,才能在孩子中树威,所以,他斩钉截铁地说:“你少说话,贾马尔,接着,不然我把他扔了。”这样,迫使拉提卡接受了萨利姆的建议,再一次的争锋中,萨利姆的名利观战胜了兄弟情。


The would-be hard fork with an expanded block size limit was described by hardware manufacturer Bitmain in June 2017 as a "contingency plan" should the bitcoin community decide to fork; the first implementation of the software was proposed under the name Bitcoin ABC at a conference that month. In July 2017, the Bitcoin Cash name was proposed by mining pool ViaBTC. The change, called a fork, took effect on 1 August 2017. As a result, the bitcoin ledger called the blockchain and the cryptocurrency split in two.[16]


Bitcoin is the world’s first virtual digital currency underpinned by a completely decentralized blockchain technology also known as the Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). Bitcoin was first created in 2009 by an anonymous identity of Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin allows for peer-to-peer transactions and is completely free of any third-party involvement like financial institutions or central banks. The Bitcoin’s blockchain network maintains a history of all the transactions made and facilitates instant funds transfer with minimal transaction fees required to cover the cost of network operation. The total supply of Bitcoin is fixed at 21 million coins and its smallest fractional unit is called as Satoshi. Each Satoshi is a hundred millionth of a Bitcoin which means 100,000,000 Santoshi = 1 BTC. Bitcoins are generated by a process known as ‘mining’ which involves solving of complex mathematical algorithms. The miners involved in the mining process look after the Bitcoin network security and validate each transactions taking place on the network. Bitcoin can be exchanged with other digital currencies or fiat currencies. Bitcoin is used as a means of payment by over 100,000 vendors and merchants.

Bitcoin Cash was launched in August 2017, as a direct response to small block sizes on the Bitcoin code. 1MB block sizes were not meeting the demand of the growing community, so a group of dissatisfied crypto enthusiasts decided to create a ‘hard fork’ of the Bitcoin blockchain, with an increased 8MB block size. No one person currently takes credit for the token’s creation; rather it is attributed to a de-centralized group of developers.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is hard fork (a community-activated update to the protocol or code) of Bitcoin that took effect on August 1st, 2017 that increased the block size to 8MB, to help the scale the underlying technology of Bitcoin.Nov 16th 2018: BCH was hard forked again and split into Bitcoin SV and Bitcoin ABC. Bitcoin ABC became the dominant chain and took over the BCH ticker as it had more hashpower and majority of the nodes in the network.
