As such, the digital currency has officially forked and split in two: bitcoin cash and bitcoin. Ether, the digital currency that runs on the Ethereum network and is considered bitcoin's chief rival, rose 2.6% to $209.91.
The Bitcoin split, or "fork", has been discussed at length in the days leading up to August 1st. He likened it to a stock trading "ex dividend"-when the buyer isn't entitled to collect a dividend on the shares".
For 2018, Ronnie Moas, founder of Standpoint Research has given a price target of $5000 for bitcoin.
Considering how Bitcoin Cash tokens do not even exist yet, the market interest is quite surprising. According to Bitcoin's "how it works" page, the balances on the account are kept in a public ledger known as a blockchain, and transactions are confirmed through a process known as mining which occurs inside the blockchain queue. It will happen once blockchains reach over 1,000 kilobytes on the websiteBlockchain.info.
Those who have invested in bitcoin could be heading for an unexpected windfall, with the cryptocurrency today being split in two following a "hard fork" in the blockchain.

Some are less bullish.
Hileman says the support for Bitcoin Cash is being driven by financial opportunism, with some seeing it as "free money". Some bitcoin exchanges, where users make transactions and store their coins, will recognize Bitcoin Cash, including Kraken and ViaBTC - but others like Coinbase and Poloniex said they wouldn't as they're uncertain it'll stick around.
Bitcoin Cash addresses this problem head-on by increasing the capacity for transaction data to a much more generous eight megabytes. Originally used for online payments, bitcoin has been moving into traditional retail and is in use in Alabama. The original version of bitcoin has blocks that are 1MB in size.
With Huobi and BTCC supporting BCC, the list of exchanges that support BCC has increased.
