How to buy Bitcoin Cash in Finland
Is BCH a good investment in Finland?
Bitcoin Cash crypto (known as BCH) was released in 2017 with an initial price of $440. At the very beginning, BCH surprised everyone with its price rise to $621 in only a few months. Surprisingly, BCH set a record for the all-time highest price of $2,940 in December of the same year. It was shocking for BCH owners because, in less than a year, their investment had delivered almost 6 times the profit. However, 2018 wasn’t that good for people who decided to invest in BCH at the end of 2017, because every month the price dropped until it reached $81 per token in December of 2018. The next year wasn’t so fluctuating for BCH and almost passed with a stable price between $300 to $400. The same happened in 2020. In 2021, the BCH price again climbed and reached $1,454 per coin, and became a highly profitable investment for its owners.
BCH had ups and downs, like any other cryptocurrency. It had shown many times that it could be a profitable investment. However, no one knows what may happen to its future. Therefore, when you want to purchase this coin, you may wonder if it will be a good investment. To answer this question, you need to check several things to understand if BCH might be on growth or may fall. One of them is BCH price predictions. Crypto analysts and experts analyze the performance of crypto and other factors to forecast its future. Most analysts believe BCH's price might reach $2000 by 2030, which means it may be a good long-term investment.
What is Bitcoin Cash ?
Bitcoin Cash was released in 2017 as a hard fork of Bitcoin, which means it was split from the original protocol to solve the problems regarding scalability, low speed, and high fees that Bitcoin had. Bitcoin Cash is technically and structurally similar to Bitcoin, but it can pack 4 to 8 times larger data into each block. It can also process 116 transactions per second, which means blocks are bigger, and yet the speed is higher compared to Bitcoin. Furthermore, due to its fees, Bitcoin wasn’t suitable for everyday purchases anymore. Thus, Bitcoin Cash was created as an alternative to Bitcoin for everyday use.
