Emil Oldenburg, co-founder of the popular Bitcoin.com platform, has sold all his Bitcoins, deemed "virtually useless", to prefer Bitcoin Cash. In his eyes, this transition is inevitable for lovers of cryptocurrency.
The continued rise in the value of Bitcoin - which recently broke the $ 10,000 mark - is not only happy.
