Top Bitcoin Supporters Jump Ship to Bitcoin Cash

Roger Ver, Craig Wright, Calvin Ayre, and Emil Oldenburg Choose Bitcoin CashBitcoin.com recently switched its focus to developing services for Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin. One of the reasons for this is that Bitcoin Cash provides a solution for every issue of Bitcoin.

The transaction fee for Bitcoin Cash is less than a dollar. Bitfinex, one of the largest crypto exchange sites, sets the transaction fee of Bitcoin Cash to 0.0001 BCH, which is around 24 cents at the time of writing. There is also no lead time for Bitcoin Cash which makes transaction faster to confirm.

Bitcoin Currently Faces Serious Problems

According to Oldenburg, one of the issues that make Bitcoin a risky investment is its transaction times, costs, and lead times. This is due to the rising value of the cryptocurrency that nearly brushed the $20,000 mark recently.

Bitcoin was once hailed for its fast transactions with low fees. A normal transaction currently takes an average of 4.5 hours to get confirmed. Transaction fees only cost 20 cents last year. Today, it can take more than $20 just to send a Bitcoin payment.

The risks surrounding Bitcoin is threatening the cryptocurrency’s liquidity. Issues with the transaction are making the Bitcoin network useless. This is due to Bitcoin’s block size of 1mb which limits the amount of transaction anyone can make per second. More, the rising numbers of investors who are buying into Bitcoin are contributing to the congestion of the network. The limitation of Bitcoin and its issues are making it unusable as a feasible payment method, even in the Bitcoin casino market.
