    Bitcoin Cash was created on 1 August 2007. One of the things changed when they forked Bitcoin into Bitcoin Cash was the difficulty algorithm. Bitcoin’s difficultly is so high right now that if it lost a large amount of hash power all at once the blocks would slow to nearly a halt… two weeks to wait for a few transactions would essentially destroy it. Bitcoin Cash now have much quicker difficulty adjustments (every hour) compared to Bitcoin which needs 14 days to adjust his difficulty algorithm.
