Bitcoin Cash, same as Bitcoin, is a cryptocurrency based on decentralization, adopting point-to-point network and consensus initiative, open-source code and taking blockchain as the underlying technology. The bitcoin community has debated about capacity expansion for three years. Finally, on August 1, 2017, Bitcoin Cash performed a hard fork at block height 478558, distributed according to Bitcoin 1:1, with a total amount of 21 million, and the isolation was removed. Witness and block upper limit were upgraded to 8M, and later upgraded to 32M. Through on-chain expansion, the problems of high handling fee, slow confirmation, and poor practicability in the old Bitcoin system were solved, fulfilling the promise of Bitcoin as " point-to-point e-cash".
Total circulation: 21 million
