Bitcoin Cash is a blockchain protocol that hard-forked from Bitcoin in August 2017. A hard fork is a split of the existing blockchain, which means that Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash blockchains were one and the same before the split. The division was a consequence of a debate in the Bitcoin community on how to process a larger amount of transactions per minute. There were two main solutions put forward. The first was to reduce the amount of information included in each block through SegWit2x technology. The second suggestion was to increase the block size, an option suggested by a group of people skeptical of the actual benefits of SegWit2x.
This group of people eventually split up and forked into a new blockchain, namely Bitcoin Cash.
To summarise, the main differences between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin are: the block size of 32 MB instead of the 2MB and the scalability solution based on the increased block size rather than on Segwit2x.
Crypto APIs supports Bitcoin Cash mainnet and testnet APIs.

Decode Raw Transactions EndpointGet general information Decode Raw Transactions Endpoint
We also offer the ability to decode raw transactions without sending propagating them to the network; perhaps you want to double-check another client library or confirm that another service is sending proper transactions.Documentation
Creating Transactions EndpointGet general information about Creating Transactions Endpoint
Using Crypto APIs, you can push transactions to blockchains one of two ways:Documentation
Sign TransactionsThe Send Transactions Endpoint allows users to sign a transaction.
The Sign Transactions Endpoint allows users to sign a raw transaction.Documentation
Send Transactions EndpointThe Sign Transactions Endpoint allows users to sign a raw transaction.
Transaction Send Endpoint allows users to broadcast the signed transaction to the Bitcoin blockchain.Documentation
New Transaction EndpointGet general information about New Transaction Endpoint
The New Transaction Endpoint combines the other three endpoints: Create, Sign and Send Endpoints. Users should provide the inputs and outputs fields with the corresponding data, as well as the fee and the wifs(private ECDSA keys) of the addresses. Therefore, the endpoint creates, signs and broadcasts the new transaction to the Bitcoin Blockchain. For more information, see the examples.Documentation
