Bitcoin Cash’s goal is to be used by merchants and users as a form of payment, a "peer-to-peer electronic cash system". It provides fast, secure transaction with low fees. Adoption of the cryptocurrency by merchants is a huge influencer of the coins success and valuation.
Altcoin adoption has a major role in positive price increases, adoption is hugely influenced by the use cases of the coin. Spreading of FUD by media, negative press from influential people, banning of crypto by certain countries (regulation) and hacking of altcoin and exchange platforms has a negative effect on altcoin prices.
