Bitcoin Cash has continued its decline and has broken below support at $150 and formed a new low around $135. The catalyst for the decline was a hard fork which took place mid-November. The hard fork resulted in a battle for hash power taking place between Bitcoin Cash and the hard forked Bitcoin Cash SV.

Hash power is important for the security of the network. The decreased hash power behind the Bitcoin Cash network has had a negative impact on price as investors reevaluate the value given the decreased security of the network.

Bitcoin Cash Hash Rate

The decrease in price and hash rate has resulted in Bitcoin Cash dropping in the cryptocurrency rankings. Bitcoin Cash was the fourth largest cryptocurrency by market cap for much of 2018 but has now been overtaken by Stellar Lumens. Bitcoin Cash SV is ranked ninth at a price of $89.
