BCH Price Prediction

When it comes to future prediction of Bitcoin Cash, there are two things to consider. First of all, it will probably stay in the shadow of Bitcoin for a long time, always being recognized as the fork and not full project. However, technologically it has high chance of surpassing Bitcoin and that's what people will notice in the future. Even now, there are many services which decide to accept BCH instead of BTC for payments. Assuming, bitcoin going to the moon later in the year, BTH could easily achieve current BTC prices. Therefore, a confident and optimistic prediction would estimate it at around $6000 at the end of the year in case of bullish market.
