The Bitcoin Cash hard fork is set to be one of the most nerve-ending days in the short history of the cryptocurrency. As you may know, a hard fork is taking place in which the blockchain is being split into two separate camps – Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV.
The hard fork is set to take place at 4.40pm UTC on November 15 and debate is raging as to who will come out on top. In other words, one of these two blockchains is expected to dominate as the cryptocurrency markets watch the battle unfold.
Who to Watch During the Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork
In case you might be asking yourself, Bitcoin ABC is the name given to the developers of the first chain, while Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision is led by research company nChain.
Simply put, miners will use their hash power on one of these two chains, as investors decide which coins to back and which coins to sell.
Needless to say, everything is up in the air at this point but one thing is certain, there will be fireworks shortly after the BCH hard fork.
As you may also know, Bitcoin SV had stated in recent days that they intend to take down their opposing chain which only fuels the fire more and promises for an interesting day tomorrow.

What Will Happen with the BCH Hard Fork?
Well, it’s anyone’s guess now. At first, it seemed as though Bitcoin ABC would come out on top with little trouble. However, Craig Wright has revealed that Bitcoin SV has most of the BCH hash rate which gives them a clear advantage in what is now a highly critical race.
