Like bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash relies on the community.
With the growing number of transactions, the blockchain has been having trouble keeping up.
Miners run a digital ledger, known as the blockchain, which keeps a theoretically unhackable record of transactions. In case of Ethereuem's hard fork, both Ethereum Classic and Ethereum have survived and thrived, and the same can be the case with legacy bitcoin and the new comer as well.
