Roger Ver, the early investor in Bitcoin related startups who has always been a prominent supporter of Bitcoin adoption and saw Bitcoin as a means to promote economic freedom, now started to promote Bitcoin Cash. This was stated in a series of tweets in his official twitter account.

In the interview with Bloomberg Roger Ver explained that he considered Bitcoin Cash to be the future of Bitcoin when it was traded at the price of only $450 each. He claimed that he is a much bigger fan of Bitcoin Cash as BTH became the third biggest cryptocurrency in the entire ecosystem after 5 weeks. He also states that Bitcoin Cash is the most useful currency as it has a limited supply which can be moved much faster and cheaper.

Currently a daily Bitcoin Cash has a trading volume of over half and a circulating supply higher in comparison with Bitcoin. It's price showed crazy fluctuations recently and  the crypto community is beginning to pay closer attention to Bitcoin Cash.

Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin and will have the bigger market cap, trade volume and user base in the future.

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.
