In his next tweets, he emphasized other aspects of Bitcoin Cash for 2018: an improved private key system, as well as accelerated transactions and more sustainable transparency. However, when asked who works on the Bitcoin improvement project and when testnet comes out, Craig did not give a concrete answer. He only said that now their team is working on spreading the cryptocurrency all over the world, which will undoubtedly lead to BCH growth.

There were a lot of questions whether Bitcoin Cash program is planned well.

It is planned in the best way, it has many additions. We are interested primarily in the fact that cryptocurrency can be turned into cash, but it will not happen through bank settlement system.

Craig Wright called for people to help, only after listening to the wishes of ordinary users it becomes evident what to implement to the project to make it popular. Thus, bitcoin users sent numerous messages, and offered ideas for the interface. It should be noted that Roger Ver, Bitcoin.com CEO has already announced the release of Bitcoin Cash Visa debit card, and ViaBTC has developed a new exchange platform for cryptocurrency, which is primarily focused on BCH.

No one can yet give accurate forecasts as to whether a new currency can compete with Bitcoin, but it is obvious that the team is primed for victory.

Rising interest in Bitcoin Cash has made a big impact on cryptocurrency market and service providers alike. The rising exchange rates and more widespread support on exchange platforms contributes to the fact. And this can;t be ignored by companies involved in Bitcoin ATM business. They wouldn't want to be left on the side in such a quick-rising market. So Athena Bitcoin took a logical step and added support for Bitcoin Cash to their ATMs.

In the case of Athena Bitcoin, it's an interesting step because of many reasons. The don't plan to drop Bitcoin anytime soon, so it's just an expansion of bases, rather than a complete turnover. Also added support will be interesting to statistics, because Athena's widespread coverage in several US states will allow to see, whether or not BCH is more popular than BTC in some states.

Bitcoin Cash support will also allow for BCH to fiat conversion with two-way machines available in Athena's network. Added competition doesn't thrill Bitcoin Core community, but BCH enthusiasts are quite happy with this situation.

So far Athena Bitcoin is one of the first providers to give such opportunity to the masses, so it would be interesting to see if other ATM networks will follow the example. Decisions like that are always more than a little controversial so we'll have to wait and see if it pays off.
