Bitcoin Cash {BCH} adoption: a major firm involved in cryonics welcomes BCH donations


Bitcoin Cash is ranked at #4 ahead of Litecoin on coinmarketcap. Even though BCH was in the green zone a day ago, a drop rate of 10.46% was noted. The trading volume recorded in the course of the past 24-hours is $1.793 billion, while the supply has 17,947,888 BCH tokens in play. The total market cap of Bitcoin Cash is $5.632 billion. At present, BCH is priced at $313.84.

The Alcor Life Extension Foundation, which specializes in cryonics has declared that BCH donations is henceforth acceptable. This field is disputed even amongst members belonging to the scientific community, as many regard it as “pseudoscience”. So far, cryogenics is yet to yield favorable result; may be sometime in the near future advanced technology holds the key to furthering life.

Alcor executives were convinced back in 2014 due to persistent efforts by Roger Ver, soon after they began accepting BTC donations. Now, Roger is the CEO of and a BCH enthusiast. Hal Finney, an early BTC collector got his body preserved at Alcor, and his wife followed suit.

Alcor accepts donations in the form of BTC, ETH, LTC as well. From henceforth, BCH will be joining this list.

The Alcor Life Extension Foundation has been a pioneer in cryonics technologies, and if a breakthrough occurs, they will most probably be involved.

While thousands disagree with the Foundation and their principle, frequently associating them with “quackery”, Dr James Bedford a professor of psychology, was the first person who was cryopreserved when he was declared dead. Robin Hanson and Ralph Merkle, both engaged in the crypto-community have been long-term believers of cryonics.
