The rapid increase in the price of Bcash can be attributed to a number of factors, including the latest announcement of the founder of the Pirate Party, Rick Falkvinge, that he is redirecting all available resources to the BTH.

Under the "latest developments" Rick Falquinge is referring to the statement of the supporters of SegWit2x about the refusal of the planned for the middle of November hardfork.

Another important reason for the increase in Bcash's price can also be considered the approaching hardfork of this network: as previously confirmed by the developers, it will happen on November 13. This fork is planned and is aimed at changing the existing consensus rules in the Bcash network.

We can not, however, exclude another version, which co-founder of Bitcoin.org Cobra recently expressed.

Also, among the latest developments in the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem, we can point out the Bitcoin. com almost stopped BTC mining and now is focused on Bitcoin Cash. At the moment, the Bitcoin.com share in the total hashte Bitcoin Cash is about 18%.
