What is BCH

Bitcoin Cash is an alternative to Bitcoin that aims to fix the main issues that Bitcoin suffers from by changing how the blockchain behaves. The biggest changes are that Bitcoin Cash has a faster block time and larger blocks. That means transactions go through faster and cheaper than they would on the Bitcoin network.


When demand is high, Bitcoin Cash transactions can become slow due to the relatively small size of each block and the fact that each block takes about 10 minutes to complete. This could translate into a long wait time of hours or even days for a transaction to go through. It can also result in a much higher transaction fee to move your transaction to the front of the line.


However, with Bitcoin Cash’s faster block times and larger block sizes, fees are consistently low, and transactions generally take minutes to finalize.


BTC and BCH are not interchangeable and are completely different cryptocurrencies with their own blockchains. The maximum supply of Bitcoin Cash is 21 million, identical to that of BTC. Additionally, Bitcoin Cash has its own blockchain and is, therefore, a coin rather than a token.

Cryptocurrency is a new class of digital assets popularized by Bitcoin (BTC). While cryptocurrencies or digital/virtual currencies work much like their traditional fiat counterparts, the biggest difference between the two is the lack of centralized infrastructure and banks.


Where fiat currencies are issued by and kept in banks, digital currencies are issued via distributed mechanisms that follow strict consensus protocols. This translates into cryptocurrencies being stored on blockchains which are largely immutable, much more transparent and globally accessible.


Given their utility and growing list of use cases, cryptocurrencies are gaining popularity and one way to buy cryptocurrency is to use a reliable crypto exchange like OKX. On OKX, users can sign up, verify their identities and start buying Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies instantly using credit cards, debit cards, bank transfers and other supported payment methods.


Typically, when you buy cryptocurrency, you have to store it in a dedicated wallet, but the security of your digital assets depends on how safely your private key is kept. Every cryptocurrency wallet has a private key which allows complete access to the stored digital assets. If you lose your private key, you effectively lose your funds.


Using an exchange like OKX also facilitates users because their newly purchased or traded digital assets are kept securely on the platform and are credited into users' accounts, available to be sold or transferred as required.


Ultimately, users should always buy cryptocurrency from a reliable exchange, and if they withdraw their digital assets to a personal wallet, they should keep their private keys safe and backed up to ensure the security of their funds.
