What is Bitcoin Cash ABC?

Bitcoin Cash ABC (BHCA) was created as a hard fork from Bitcoin Cash, due to disagreement in the community regarding management and development direction. Interestingly, Bitcoin Cash was a hard fork from the original Bitcoin, where the network’s government was also split on development direction. According to Investopedia, Bitcoin Cash ABC naturally shares a number of elements with Bitcoin Cash. Both intend to develop a cryptocurrency that is accessible and tradeable while addressing the scalability and speed issues of Bitcoin. What makes Bitcoin Cash ABC unique is the "coinbase rule". The coinbase rule adds a tax to those mining Bitcoin Cash ABC. 8% of all BCHA mined are distributed back into the ecosystem, allowing for a self-sustaining network. 50% of this "tax" is given to developers for protocol operation and the remainder is used in a governance system called the Global Network Council. BCHA tokens are native to the Bitcoin Cash ABC network. They can be used for certain integrated applications as a form of economy, and they can be used to vote on governance. There is a high entry-level stake required to gain voting power.

What to consider when buying Bitcoin Cash ABC

As a second derivative from Bitcoin, there are certain risks associated with BCHA that should be considered. Before purchasing any coins, here are a few things worth thinking about:
  • Competition. The first derivative, Bitcoin Cash, was originally created to re-focus Bitcoin away from a store of value and back towards a transactional network. Bitcoin Cash ABC follows this same philosophy but now implements a few fundamental differences. Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Cash ABC are, technologically, very similar, which means they all compete for the same market share.
  • Availability. Bitcoin Cash ABC is an accessible token that is available on most popular exchanges such as Binance and CoinEx. BCHA can be traded against fiat currencies, as well as stablecoins.
  • Governance. There is a high barrier for entry for voting on governance proposals. As a result, the majority of voting power is distributed between miners, high-volume token holders and developers. While this does impact the goal of decentralization, it does mean that governance will be assessed by those with a greater stake and clear understanding of the network.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Cash ABC, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of BCHA is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision.
