What is Bitcoin Cash?
Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency that was launched in August 2017. It is a decentralized peer-to-peer electronic cash system, used as both a long-term store of value and as a medium of exchange.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) shares many of the same characteristics as Bitcoin (BTC) — yet it also features a number of changes that sets it apart from Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash was created to accommodate a larger block size compared to Bitcoin, in order to improve scalability and enable more transactions to be processed.

Bitcoin Cash & Flights
Why use Bitcoin Cash?
Bitcoin Cash is a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain — the most widely-used and most secure cryptocurrency in the world. It has been developed to serve as a safe and reliable form of digital cash. Because it is a decentralized and open network — meaning that no single group or individual can control it — the future of Bitcoin Cash is secure. There are numerous reasons why an increasing number of people are turning to reap the benefits of investing in and using Bitcoin Cash. Here are some of the reasons:
Bitcoin Cash is a reliable currency
Fiat currencies can inflate or deflate, and the value of savings can dwindle. In comparison, Bitcoin Cash has a fixed supply. The Bitcoin Cash protocol ensures there will never be more than 21 million Bitcoin coins in existence, therefore creating a reliable and sound currency.
Easily send money anywhere in the world
Bitcoin Cash makes it easy to send money to anyone, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. Send money globally for just pennies, compared to the much higher fees that is usually charged for fiat currencies.
Take control of your funds
Bitcoin Cash gives you complete, sovereign control over your funds. It does not rely on any central authority, such as a government or financial institution. Banks can be volatile, whereas Bitcoin Cash gives you access from anywhere in the world.
For privacy and anonymity
Bitcoin Cash is a permissionless, decentralized and open network. Bitcoin Cash offers more privacy and anonymity than traditional fiat payment systems, such as bank transfers and credit card payments.

Bitcoin Cash and Flights
What is the difference between Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash?
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) was created in 2017 through what’s called a ‘hard fork’. A ‘hard fork’ is a radical upgrade to the open-source software behind the blockchain. Both BCH and BTC assets share a transaction history, common code base and more, but BTC now follows the old rules and BCH now follows a new set of rules.
Bitcoin (BTC) was formed by bitcoin miners and developers who were concerned about the future of the bitcoin cryptocurrency and its scalability. The technical difference is that Bitcoin Cash allows larger blocks in its blockchain than Bitcoin. This allows it to process more transactions per second.
