Bitcoin Prices Rise as Post-Fork Market Shows Poise

Everyone who held Bitcoins received Bitcoin Cash.

"From an investor's point of view, we invested in Coinbase because they have made a voluntary commitment to be regulated", Schuler said, "and to focus on being trusted and safe - as safe as you can be in an experimental environment like this".

The cryptocurrency was created as a result of the hardfork in Bitcoin's blockchain, which occurred on 1 August.

Despite this, sources close to the situation said that the users who left the exchange are likely only gone temporarily and expect to see many people return to Coinbase while simultaneously storing newly acquired bitcoin cash in a different digital wallet.

Bitcoin Cash increases the limits to 8 megabytes - but that too could become a limiting factor in time. It's pretty much impossible to predict how a new coin will perform over the course of so many months.

It has undergone several exchanges including the popular destinations like the Coinbase and Kraken.

Some observers are speculating that the Coinbase cold reserves fell by 50% when customers unhappy with the decision to stick with only the original blockchain made a "run on the bank" withdrawing their value.

Could Bitcoin Cash still have a fighting chance against its predecessor? For users on exchanges and custodial platforms, which handle private keys for their clients, each exchange is handling the BCH hard fork differently.

The original bitcoin traded Friday almost 3 percent higher at $2894.91, holding near Tuesday's highs, according to CoinDesk.

Some leading bitcoin exchanges including US -based Kraken and South Korea's second largest bitcoin exchange Korbit support BCH/BTC trading and offer wallet services.

How happy users will be largely depends on the price they will be able to sell their Bitcoin Cash at when withdrawals are finally available on Coinbase and GDAX.

"We have no plans to support the Bitcoin Cash fork". Namely, most bitcoin holders can't yet trade their bitcoin cash because only that portion held in exchanges can be traded.

Others were concerned that Coinbase would secretly keep the bitcoin cash that was generated on Tuesday.

In a blog post published yesterday, the company assured its customers that they would eventually get access to that digital currency.
