Bitcoin Cash hard fork
Thursday is the fourth largest digital currency Bitcoin Cash
It is placed on heavy forks and divided into two currencies.

"This drop in price is more than probable due to the upcoming tough villas scheduled by Bitcoin Cash," said Marcus Svanepoel, co-founder and chief executive officer of Luno, a criminal for trading wallets.

"So, recent sales have not changed my look at the technology or potential that it has. Wait for the currency or debt crisis and the day it strikes the door, guess who will answer the door? Bitcoin."
