Bitcoin Cash splits off into new digital currency

The digital currency Bitcoin is splitting in two, with a new currency called Bitcoin Cash running on a similar, but separate, blockchain.

The split, known as a "hard fork," is expected to occur Aug. 1.

The distributed ledger used by Bitcoin Cash uses larger "blocks," or segments of data that enable transactions on a blockchain. Supporters of the split have said the Bitcoin Cash technology will allow a larger volume of transactions to occur at a faster pace than the one used by Bitcoin. The Bitcoin blockchain can process about seven transactions per second, whereas Visa Inc. processes about 2,000 per second, according to The Telegraph.

Holders of Bitcoin are expected to see their balances transition to a mix of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash once the split is complete.
