    Up until last week, the only crypto-currency accepted by Bovada has been Bitcoin. They have now added support for another cryptocurrency called Bcash or Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash supporters claim that this new crypto has lower fees and faster confirmation times. Anyone hodling bitcoin at the beginning of August also owns the same amount of Bitcoin Cash following the fork. Most wallets like Breadwallet, Trezor, Ledger and GreenAddress allow you to easily claim your free Bcash/Bitcoin Cash coins. Coinbase and will be allowing their customers to withdraw their Bitcoin Cash coins at the beginning of January 2017.


    If you decide that you want to use BitcoinCash instead of bitcoin, be aware that you will need to use a different wallet. For example, if you buy Bitcoin Cash at an exchange and send it to your Breadwallet then the money will be lost forever. Bitcoin Cash is a completely separate crypto currency to bitcoin in the same way that Litecoin, Monero or Ethereum are.

    remember that bitcoin cash is over $1,000 so there might never be a better time to dump them at bovada.

    I'm pretty sure they all use the same crypto payment provider so I'm sure they support Bitcoin Cash too. Bovada don't mention BitcoinCash on your website so they don't seem to be pumping it that much.

    Yes, CloudBet paid out the BCH to their players who were holding BTC on their site at the time of the fork. Shame they have banned gamblers from America.

    What advantage does Bitcoin Cash have over Litecoin? I don't understand its USP?

    I guess Bcash is supported by Chinese miners. I can't think of any other advantage. Litecoin transactions are just as cheap and blocks confirm every 1.5 minutes so it's also faster than Bcash.

    i'm really surprised that calvin ayre isn't offering any specific bch bonuses on bodog given he is one of the main backers or bcash.

    Do they also accept Bitcoin Cash SV (Satoshi Vision) since Calvin Ayre is the main backer of that cryptocurrency?
