This split happened last year August 2017 when the first bitcoin-branded hard fork happened to ‘increase block size' as one of the primary drivers between the community split. This was all done due to the fees being too high during BTC's run from $1,000 to near $20,000 in 2017.
What if I told you that median Bitcoin transaction fees – expressed in Satoshis – have never been lower since around March 2011?

BCH and BTC are both versions of Bitcoin. The question becomes: which one is more useful?

Opposing crypto camps (Proof of Work vs Proof of Stake, Ethereum vs Bitcoin, Bitcoin vs Bitcoin Cash…) keep trashing the other side's ideology.
In this endless war of rants, everyone is right. Because every single crypto idea was born out of false premises, and is full of shit.

What do you guys think of the Bitcoin vs Bitcoin Cash debate and community split? There is no doubt it has made the totality of the ecosystem weaker in whole even though both coins are doing their respective things in building a bigger and better tomorrow using the blockchain technology inherent in either whitepaper from day one.
