Bitcoin Cash has proved to the investors that it has the ability to reverse a downtrend significantly. This comes after the digital asset corrected from the lows formed around $73.36 to highs around $229.65 in less than one week.

The hash war and the trade wars between the chains has cooled down as both networks focus on development.
