I know that bitcoin uses hashcash as PoW algorithm, Ethereum uses EtHash and Litecoin uses Scrypt. But I didn't found anywhere the PoW algorithm used in BitCoin Cash, does it uses hashcash too?

  • I would assume so since it was a hard fork from Bitcoin and was billed at one point as 'the real Bitcoin". Changing the PoW algorithm i think would have made that argument silly. I could be wrong and they did change, it just doesn't seem likely to me. – cleanmarker Dec 24 '18 at 22:00

BCH and BSV both use SHA256 as their POW algorithm, as does Bitcoin (BTC).
