In turn, Bitcoin cash, has jumped more than 22% since Friday, according to the exchange data. Bitcoin cash is gaining popularity because of its larger block size allows signing more transactions within single block, making each transaction cheaper. More and more miners are taking shift into mining the new cryptocurrency and leading technology providers already adopted ASICs to support new algorithm.
