Acknowledging the entrepreneur, Elon Musk too agreed that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is better than Bitcoin (BTC) in terms of lower transaction fees.

Kim pointed out that over half of all cash payments worldwide are just below $10, further reiterating that replacing bitcoin as a payment method would not be affordable as the median fees are quite high. For instance, a median fee for Bitcoin would be $8.92, while for Bitcoin Cash it would be only $0.001.
