Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Price Analysis: Support Holding Ahead of Hard Fork - Ethereum World News
Bitcoin Cash continues to hover around the Fib retracement levels while traders await the outcome of the hard fork. By the looks of it, there is still no consensus in the community as a near 50-50 split on the versions is eyed. On the 4-hour time frame, the 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the upside. In other words, the uptrend is more likely to resume than to reverse. After all, Bitcoin Cash recently formed a double bottom reversal pattern and was able to break above the neckline. Besides, the 100 SMA also seems to be holding as dynamic support around the 61.8% Fib and $500 handle. A larger dip could test the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point, but a break below this could mean a move back to the swing low or lower.

How the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Hash War Is Affecting Bitcoin (BTC) - Ethereum World News
The last 24 hours in the crypto-market have stunned many traders and left them speechless. This is due to the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) fell from levels of around $6,300 to a new low of $5,544 in a matter of hours if not minutes. The total crypto market capitalization also fell from levels of $209 Billion to $180 Billion in the same time period. BTC is currently trading at $5,660 and down 11% in the last 24 hours. The total crypto market capitalization now stands at $186 Billion. All other cryptocurrencies are bleeding heavily also. One explanation of the current turmoil in the crypto-verse, is the ongoing Hash Wars between the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) community as they prepare for the upcoming BCH hard-fork. Both sides of the ?battle? ? Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV ? have vowed to take down the other using all means possible.

Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork: Hashwar Continues, ABC and SV Remain At Odds - Ethereum World News
Now that November 15th has passed, all eyes have been glued to Crypto Twitter and websites regarding the Bitcoin Cash contentious hard fork/network upgrade, as it has yet to be determined whether Roger Ver, Jihan Wu, and their compatriots (Bitcoin ABC) have ousted Craig Wright and Craig Ayre (Bitcoin Satoshi?s Vision) over in the other corner, so to speak. When the upgrade activated during Bitcoin Cash?s 556767th block, ABC quickly took the lead, overtaking SV in terms of hashrate and community support. More specifically, within a few hours, even though ABC suffered a suspected spam attack, Roger Ver?s client of choice left SV in the dust in terms of block height.

Checkmate: Bitcoin Cash Hash War Ends With SV Surrender - Ethereum World News
Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin SV, Cryptocurrency?As the cryptocurrency markets continue to slip into another day of price fall, with headlines across the internet declaring Black Friday savings for Bitcoin and altcoins, the BCH fiasco encapsulated in the recent ?hash war? is finally coming to an end. While the original Bitcoin Cash was at the center of a naming controversy when it split from Bitcoin Core in August 2017, with BCH figurehead Roger Ver claiming the coin to be the true iteration of Bitcoin, the subsequent hard fork on Nov. 15th has been far more contentious. The resulting factions from Bitcoin Cash, named Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV, have been at one another?s throat since the split, with supporters of each doing their best to besmirch and tear down the other?with the ultimate loser being the entire industry of cryptocurrency. Similar to the earlier split of BTC and BCH, both coin communities and developers wanted to claim the ?official? title of Bitcoin Cash, thereby holding sway over the majority of investor interest and brand appeal. However, the lack of consensus across the industry?a combination of exchange support, developer weight and algorithmic hash production?led to an ongoing conflict where by both parties suffered.

Roger Ver: Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Is "The Best From An Investment Standpoint" - Ethereum World News
For the better part of a decade, Bitcoin (BTC) has sat at the forefront of the cryptocurrency industry, continually proving itself that it is a reliable project to invest your time and money in. But for proponents of Bitcoin Cash, the crypto that spawned out of August 2017?s hard fork of the Bitcoin chain, BCH reigns supreme. It goes without saying that Roger Ver, dubbed ?Bitcoin Jesus? by some, has quickly become the controversial poster child of Bitcoin Cash. Ver recently spoke with the hosts of CNBC?s ?Fast Money? show to discuss his opinions on the cryptocurrency market, specifically regarding Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Stress Test a Success Amidst Poor Price Projections - Ethereum World News
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?Despite analysis by Satis Group earlier in the week, which gave an overwhelmingly negative price forecasting for Bitcoin Cash, BCH has managed to gain 14 percent in 24 hours from news of a successfully implemented stress test for the underlying cryptocurrency network. According to information published through the blockchain metric-monitoring website Bitinfo, Bitcoin cash experienced over 2.1 million transactions on Saturday, September 1 in a scheduled stress test to push the limits of network capability. This particular stress test was a community driven effort to gauge the limitations of the BCH main net and prove the worth of the underlying blockchain capacity and scalability of the coin. The goal of the test was to create millions of minuscule-fee transactions in a single 24-hour period and observe how the network responded?such as whether transaction times would be slowed to a snail?s pace or transaction times surge to untenable prices. In addition to revealing information about the BCH main net as a source for transactions, it also provided data for developers looking to implement decentralized applications (DApps) via Bitcoin Cash.

Someone Just Copied Bitcoin's Wiki Verbatim for Bitcoin Cash - Cryptovest
A prominent user on Twitter alleged that Bitcoin Cash ripped Bitcoin's wiki to pass it as its own, but there is some evidence to the contrary. For most cryptocurrency enthusiasts, there?s rarely a middle ground when asked about Bitcoin Cash. They either hate it, or they love it. Those who hate it will find as many reasons as they can to do so, and those who love it will find any reason to defend it against any reasonable argument. On Monday, we came across a tweet that added fuel to the fire. User WhalePanda alleges that the Bitcoin Cash team created a new website for its wiki that rips off of the Bitcoin wiki. A quick look at the two shows that they are indeed identical, save for the fact that some words were changed with ?Bitcoin Cash.?

Bitcoin Core Developer Cory Fields Revealed as Finder of Vulnerability in Bitcoin Cash Consensus - Cryptovest
Cory Fields finally revealed his identity as the finder of a consensus vulnerability, which was publicly disclosed by Bitcoin ABC in May 2018. A vulnerability in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) consensus that could have fatally harmed the network was found and pointed out by Bitcoin Core developer Cory Fields. He went on to share the debacle in a lengthy blog post, once again stirring the debate of responsible disclosure in open source projects. ?On April 25, 2018, I anonymously and privately disclosed a critical vulnerability in Bitcoin Cash, one of the world?s most valuable cryptocurrencies???not to be confused with Bitcoin. A successful exploit of this vulnerability could have been so disruptive that transacting Bitcoin Cash safely would no longer be possible, completely undermining the utility (and thus the value) of the currency itself,? Fields announced.

Bitcoin Cash Difficulty Normalizes, Miners Cautiously Get On Board - Cryptovest
During the weekend rally of Bitcoin Cash, another event was noted- miners flocked to the coin, creating blocks with a shorter time. But the mining party was soon over, as it often happened in the past during periods of lowered difficulty.  Now, a hard fork has passed and the erratic changes in difficulty should smooth out for Bitcoin Cash. At the moment, its blockchain is still ahead of the original Bitcoin, with more than 670,497 new coins created ahead of schedule.  At the moment, the Bitcoin Cash blockchain is slightly less profitable. And while during peak difficulty the Unknown entity covered almost all the mining and blocks slowed down again to one hour, some pools are back to Bitcoin Cash.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Community Splits Over Craig Wright's Intention to Fork the Coin - Cryptovest
Craig Wright announced his intentions to bring his own version of Bitcoin Cash closer to the Bitcoin 1.0 vision, leaving the community expecting a hard fork. Craig Wright, known for claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of Bitcoin, is now after Bitcoin Cash (BCH). He has shared his own vision of the crypto asset?s future and potential features, which does not coincide with the plan of the Bitcoin ABC developer team to evolve BCH quickly with regular updates. ?Something people fail to understand about bitcoin is it is intentionally limited in what it can do and how it can be changed. This is purposeful. Bitcoin is designed to be stable money and for that reason it is not designed to have new opcodes added outside the need for a few security-based replacements or to be altered,? stated Wright in a recent blog.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH): 3 Reasons the Price Has Stalled - Cryptovest
BCH is fighting for attention as an altcoin and is not seen as capable of stealing value from Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) peaked at over $3,500 for a brief spell after getting listed on Coinbase, but then the digital coin gradually lost its positions, sinking way below the $1,000 mark. BCH has now stalled at around 0.1 BTC, its value fluctuating up and down but remaining stagnant. The price range of $750 to $800 is still higher compared to the post-launch days. Here are three reasons why BCH has stalled: Since the launch of an emergency difficulty algorithm for the BCH network, there have been no new periods of excessively high difficulty followed by easy mining and one-minute blocks. However, the chart shows that the profitability of BCH mining has been lower than that of Bitcoin for longer stretches of time. Even during periods when mining BCH was more profitable, the margin was very slim. For months, BCH has been mined by pools related to Bitmain, which may be a form of altruistic mining carried out despite the lower profitability. The influence of Bitmain has further eroded the credibility of BCH, which has always had its critics.

Blocktivity reflects all activity, and projects like BitShares and EOS have been accused of boosting their positions with spam transactions.
