One of the founding principles of Coin Rivet is to promote understanding of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Part of that understanding is looking at pricing trends for cryptocurrencies. This column is a regular analysis of the Bitcoin Cash price (BCH to USD). We compare against the US dollar for ease of comparison (all our cryptocurrency analysis will put values in the US dollar equivalent).

In discussing cryptocurrency prices, we are not recommending a coin neither are we recommending that you should invest in one. In fact, the more you learn and study the more you will realise that cryptocurrency prices fluctuate a lot and can be volatile. As we all know the value of investments can go up as well as down. In the case of cryptocurrencies that can be a lot – in both directions.

About Bitcoin Cash

Bitcoin Cash was born out of the idea of making Bitcoin more practical for small day-to-day payments.

A change to the code was implemented and Bitcoin Cash was born on 1st August 2017.Bitcoin Cash was launched in 2012 to facilitate secure, instant global transactions supporting tokens representing fiat currency, cryptocurrency or any unit of value.
