Bitcoin Cash is a hard fork of Bitcoin with a protocol upgrade to fix on-chain capacity. Bitcoin Cash intends to be a Bitcoin without Segregated Witness (SegWit) as soft fork, where upgrades of the protocol are done mainly through hard forks and without changing the original economic rules of the Bitcoin. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is released on 1st August 2017 as an upgraded version of the original Bitcoin Core software. The main upgrade is the increase in the block size limit from 1MB to 8MB. This effectively allows miners on the BCH chain to process up to 8 times more payments per second in comparison to Bitcoin. This makes for faster, cheaper transactions and a much smoother user experience. Why was Bitcoin Cash Created? The main objective of Bitcoin Cash is to to bring back the essential qualities of money inherent in the original Bitcoin software. Over the years, these qualities were filtered out of Bitcoin Core and progress was stifled by various people, organizations, and companies involved in Bitcoin protocol development. The result is that Bitcoin Core is currently unusable as money due to increasingly high fees per transactions and transfer times taking hours to complete. This is all because of the 1MB limitation of Bitcoin Core’s block size, causing it unable to accommodate to large number of transactions. Essentially Bitcoin Cash is a community-activated upgrade (otherwise known as a hard fork) of Bitcoin that increased the block size to 8MB, solving the scaling issues that plague Bitcoin Core today.

PacCoin (PAC), or the People’s Alternative Choice Coin, is a lesser-known coin that’s been sitting since 2015. It experienced rapid inflation during 2017, which might be attributed to generous mining rewards. At the start of 2018, PAC had become one of the cheapest cryptocurrency coins out there, with a relatively large total supply of roughly 3.5 trillion coins and a planned cap of 100 trillion. It has a devoted community that hopes to see their holdings come to fruition and make them rich, believing in its future as an “Internet penny” that lends itself to micro-transactions. PACcoins started to trade at 0.0000$ as of only a couple of days ago. Later on, the coin gained some on its price with a couple of increases that helped the price jump from non-existent to existent. After the latest decrease that made the price drop for over –9%. This decrease led to the current price of 0.000031$, which is still better than having the coin traded at 0$. For now, it remains uncertain what will happen with PACcoin and how well this coin will perform after being re-launched three weeks from now. For now, we strongly advise to give this token a thought and consider investing – the price is still too low, so even if the coin drops again, you won’t be losing much money.
