Bitcoin Cash Revives From Downtrend Lows Amid Increasing Demand
Bitcoin Cash is a hard fork from the Bitcoin blockchain, created in August 2017. Compared to Bitcoin, proponents claim BCH fees are quite lower while transactions also tend to take less time to clear and require fewer resources. On Mar. 24, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fell to lows of $442 after Tesla’s CEO, Elon Musk rejected using it for payments.
Bitcoin Cash rose from the doldrums following Latvian airline airBaltic and Paypal adoption. In late March, Latvian airline airBaltic announced that passengers can now pay for flight tickets using Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and other selected cryptos. Online payments giant PayPal also revealed that it might start to accept cryptocurrency (Bitcoin Cash inclusive) as a medium of exchange at its millions of global merchants.

BCH price started a major upward move from Mar. 25 lows of $450. Buyers gained strength and the BCH price settled above the MA 50 at $560. Bitcoin Cash managed to stabilize above the $773 resistance (prior yearly high), moving against many analysts’ expectations that it would correct lower.

On the upside, an immediate resistance beyond the recent yearly high is near the $900 level, above which the price could accelerate towards the $1,000 and $1,200 levels in the coming days. On the downside, there are many supports on the approach to the MA 50 at $560. The previous resistance near $773 is likely to act as strong support ahead of the $652, $625, and $595 support levels. Below the MA 50, support lies at $525, $484, and $442.
