Llew Claasen, founder of the Bitcoin Foundation, urged prospective investors that they should enter the cryptocurrency world with caution.

It was on this date when Bitcoin’s blockchain—the fundamental structure that supports and drives the network—was split into two, creating a new cryptocurrency, called Bitcoin Cash (BCH), that stood side-by-side BTC. At the core of this “solution” was a need for faster processing of payments/exchanges, and that is exactly what the end-result has been.

Only a few weeks ago, the debate was whether the hard fork—splitting Bitcoin into separate entities: Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash—would mean the death of the pioneering cryptocurrency, or if it would open up the door to a new future.

To an extent Litecoin is the forgotten coin. It does what bitcoin does, a little bit faster. It is nothing compared to Ripple and Ethereum, which have many more applications and use cases, or even DASH, which offers instant transactions and complete anonymity.
