Also of note is that on a 30 day basis price appears to be forming a base — which could the stage for it being a support/resistance level going forward.

    Bitcoin Cash $BCH is one of the most promising #Bitcoin forks with low fees and high speed. But do you know that the ATH reached in 2017 was around $4360, while the current price is $350? Does it mean that we a chance to see an 1100% increase soon? Get in until it’s too late.

    @elonmusk @michael_saylor Yes but small ones aren’t due to high transaction fees.And for the people saying “jUsT uSe LiGhTnInG” you still need to use a high fee on chain transaction to get onto lightning.This is the sole reason Bitcoin Cash was created

  • From wisewizzz:

    @timgraham81 @rogerkver @elonmusk @michael_saylor Every Bitcoin Cash user can transact on the chain so they can be their own bank and hold their private keys since the fees are so low. By contrast, when you use custodial services like cashapp, you rely on that company. They may censor you.
