What is Bitcoin Cash?
Bitcoin Cash is a hard fork of Bitcoin, fueled by questions regarding Bitcoin's scalability. The debate ultimately led to the hard fork on August 1, 2017, which resulted in the creation of a new blockchain. Anyone who owned Bitcoin at the time of the fork received the same number of Bitcoin Cash units. In August 2021, Smart Bitcoin Cash was launched as a sidechain for Bitcoin Cash to enable smart contract functionality and compatibility with Ethereum's EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) and Web3 API.
