The Story

The next upgrades in the pipeline for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) will finally pave the way for people to start treating the cryptocurrency as what it is supposed to be—electronic cash. And a fungible one at that.


The upgrades will enable more complicated functionality.

According to Dr. Craig Wright, chief scientist at blockchain research and development firm nChain Group, a series of protocol upgrades that will happen every six months starting May 2018 will see developers re-enabling a whole host of opcodes in the scripting language, among other things. Restoring the opcodes is important for the network because they will enable Bitcoin Cash to become more than just a currency.

Essentially, the opcodes will allow Bitcoin Cash to have more complicated functionality so that it can also power smart contracts—more than what Ethereum can offer—along with other functionalities that will drive up the cryptocurrency's usage.
