Bitcoin Cash Price Hits the $630 Mark a Two-month High
Looking at BCH's performance over the last seven days, its price jumped by 30 percent to the new trading price, as illustrated on the chart below.
Amid a rise of all cryptocurrencies from last week, Bitcoin Cash was trading at around $425 but surged with a 32.5 percent increase to a high of $588 on Monday. The surge marked a 5-week high in Bitcoin Cash (BCH)’s price.
The price increase comes at a time when Bitcoin Cash is getting ready for a hard fork which will be released in the crypto world on November 15th.
The hard fork will implement two software products in its mainnet – Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV. The primary goal of the hard fork is to increase the hashing capacity of the Bitcoin Cash network.
Bitcoin Cash is a result of an earlier Bitcoin (BTC) hard fork. The main issue that led to the hard fork was the scalability of Bitcoin.
