Frequently Asked Questions
Bitvavo makes Bitcoin Cash as easy as possible. Here are answers to common questions to help you make your first steps in the world of digital assets.
What is Bitcoin Cash?
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) originated on August 1, 2017 as a split of the Bitcoin blockchain, or "hard fork". This hard fork created a new blockchain with an associated currency: Bitcoin Cash. Bitcoin Cash largely corresponds to Bitcoin but is primarily focused on processing more transactions in a shorter time.
How does Bitcoin Cash work?
With Bitcoin Cash you can receive and send values. The transactions performed are recorded in the blockchain. The blockchain is an online decentralized payment network that can be compared to a public transaction log. All Bitcoin Cash transactions that are carried out can be found here. The transactions are processed in transaction blocks, which are comparable to payment batches, and are recorded in the blockchain.
This payment network is maintained by miners. The computing power of a computer (also known as miner) is used to process transactions and to secure the network. As compensation for the processing of transactions and for securing the network, miners receive Bitcoin Cash.

How to store Bitcoin Cash?
Storing Bitcoin Cash and other digital assets requires a wallet, but don’t worry: Bitvavo’s hosted wallet allows you to store Bitcoin Cash without any technical knowledge. Here is a brief overview of the existing wallet options to store your Bitcoin Cash:
Hosted wallets are wallets where the private keys to your Bitcoin Cash are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password and other advanced security features. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Bitcoin Cash online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform.
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or other device in order to use and manage your Bitcoin Cash. Using a software wallet gives you full control over your private keys, so you are not dependent on third parties. The risk is that you alone are in charge of the security of your Bitcoin Cash, and if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Bitcoin Cash) can be stolen.
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Bitcoin Cash offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Bitcoin Cash, because the private keys are stored on a separate and offline device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In many ways, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Bitcoin Cash is stored.
You can use Bitvavo's hosted wallet to easily store, send and receive Bitcoin Cash. Once you have purchased Bitcoin Cash on Bitvavo, you can choose to send your Bitcoin Cash from your Bitvavo wallet to your own software or hardware wallet.
