Last Updated March 19, 2021, 03:016 GMT

At the time of this writing, Bitcoin Cash’s price is up $1.91 (0.36%) from the hour prior. Bitcoin Cash has seen its price go up 4 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bulls. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 20 hour changed directions on BCH; it is now pointing up. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

A Deep Dive Into Why Bitcoin Cash is About to Take The Center Stage

Here we can see that Bitcoin’s daily economic activity ranges between 1B and 3B (USD) at a price of $4,000 to $12,000….Looking at the above chart, we can see that while Bitcoin Cash’s economic activity was very high in the hype of 2017, it failed to retain a significant portion of the economic activity on Bitcoin, explaining the reality that the price of Bitcoin Cash has been declining with regards to Bitcoin….As we can see in the following chart: economic activity picks up on Bitcoin Cash at the point where it became clear that the mean transaction fee on Bitcoin would not fall back below $5….While it is difficult to know for a fact that the relatively large increase in economic activity on Bitcoin Cash is occurring due to new activity emerging or because of existing activity migrating from Bitcoin, the timing of the economic activity increase being perfectly timed with the transaction fees on Bitcoin increasing steadily and showing no signs of slowing — points to it being the latter; economic activity is shifting from Bitcoin to Bitcoin Cash despite having much lower liquidity….It is also possible that Bitcoin’s baseline economic activity that has supported its price until now has recently shifted to Bitcoin Cash.
