JP Buntinx May 27, 2: There are numerous discussions regarding Bitcoin versus Bitcoin Cash fees in this regard.
It now seems the average Bitcoin transaction cost is lower than that of BCH. As is usually the case, such a temporary snapshot can look very different in a few hours. In fact, the BHC costs have been relatively flat for quite some time now.
Bitcoin fees have been lower than BCash fees in the last 6 hours.
Bitcoin is Set for Another Price Plunge
An interesting development, albeit one that only tells a small part of the story. The screenshot itself shows these fees for Bitcoin have spiked just an hour or two prior.
