Bitcoin Cash has successfully gone through a scheduled fork at 12:00 GMT on Nov. 15, mostly adding minor upgrades to the code.
This year’s fork, however, has come and gone without much notice from the crypto community. While it’s hard to say whether it’s due to the minor upgrades that were introduced or a general decrease in interest in Bitcoin Cash, the market had quite a bland reaction to the code changes.
While BCH’s price remained relatively stable in the days preceding the fork, it dropped just over 4 percent after the fork was finalized.
Apart from a brief withdrawal and deposit suspension on several exchanges, the fork had no major effect on the market.
There are six more months to go before BCH’s next fork, which will happen around the same time as Bitcoin’s halving, according to current estimates. The timing of the next fork will ensure a more significant market reaction, even if the upgrades themselves remain minor.
