Created on August 1st, 2017, after a so-called "hard fork", a code change splitting the blockchain and the cryptocurrency in two BTC (Bitcoin) & BCH (Bitcoin Cash)
The purpose was to increase bitcoin's block size, due to increasing fees.
The change was initiated by a group of developers, entrepreneurs, and investors looking to turn bitcoin into a transactional currency, led by Chinese based miners.
The practical difference between BTC & BCH is its block size, allowing BCH to increase the number of transactions its ledger can process, and the block size limit being 8MB.
