Is it better to buy bitcoin (BTC) or Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

Both BTC and BCH have been some of the more popular investments within the crypto space. Some traders believe they each have unique advantages and have allocated to both of them in their portfolios. Firstly, BTC has the largest market cap of any cryptocurrency and is the most well-known coin. It has established a strong 'digital gold' narrative and is considered a strong store-of-value by many. With the layer-2 Lightning Network, developers are also aiming to make Bitcoin easier to use as peer-to-peer cash. BCH may not be as large or well known, but it has its own advantages. It is able to process transactions faster than the BTC network and at a much lower cost. The vision for BCH is that it becomes widely adopted as peer-to-peer decentralised cash, in line with Satoshi Nakamoto's original vision, without needing a layer-2 solution.
