Bitcoin Cash price ballistic surge

Bitcoin Cash is among the biggest single-digit gainers on Monday. The crypto seems to be extending the weekend action from levels under $300 to highs marginally above $400. The bulls’ focus remains on $400 in the near term. However, the biggest task is to sustain gains above $360 or establish a higher support area. At the moment, BCH is trading at $361 and features a 4.12% growth on the day.

The surge has been connected to Bitcoin Cash partnership news with Mecon Cash M.Pay platform. The collaboration will see BCH withdrawals enable in over 13,000 ATMs in South Korea. The support will allow Bitcoin Cash users in the country to make urgent small transactions in areas that do not support peer-to-peer electronic cash directly. Bitcoin.com Executive Chairman Roger Ver said in regards to the partnership:

Mecon Cash is enabling Bitcoin Cash to be used at 13,700 ATM locations across Korea. Bitcoin.com is proud to be working with Mecon to help bring Bitcoin Cash and Mecon Cash to Korea and to the world.
