Number of Bitcoin Cash Whales Drops Following 39% Price Surge

August 10, 2020   Bitcoin

The number of Bitcoin Cash investors holding at least $3M dropped by 10 since Aug. 1 following the price surge to more than $311. Following a 39% price surge at the end of July, at least 10 Bitcoin Cash whales have left the network, possibly trading or selling their millions in holdings. 

According to Crypto Twitter user Ali Martinez, data from analytics site Santiment shows the number of investors holding between 10,000-100,000 Bitcoin Cash (BCH) — roughly $3-30 million — has fallen by 10 since Aug. 1. The drop comes after the token surged 38.7% from $224.46 on July 17 to a three-month high of $311.34 on July 31, implying that a number of whales could have sold their holdings.

BCH continues to be the fifth largest crypto asset by market capitalization at $5.6 billion, with Chainlink (LINK) trailing at $4.6 billion. At the time of writing, Bitcoin Cash is trading at $307.84, having risen 3% in the last 24 hours.

Adjustments to BCH difficulty algorithm


Bitcoin Cash uses the SHA256D algorithm — the same as that used by Bitcoin. However, its hashing power is less than 5% of that of Bitcoin, which has sometimes left it vulnerable to a 51% attack.

In response, the BCH community has floated changing the algorithm as part of the network’s November upgrade. Cointelegraph reported on Aug. 7 that developers have worked out a compromise between two proposed solutions. The network will implement the ‘Aserti3-2d’ difficulty adjustment proposed by lead BCHN maintainer Jonathan Toomin, and an infrastructure funding plan.
