A split in the Bitcoin community is set to create a new incompatible version of the cryptocurrency on Tuesday. A group of insiders is unhappy with existing plans to speed up transaction times. They plan to offer existing investors a matching amount of a new virtual asset - called Bitcoin Cash - which could put pressure on the value of original bitcoins. One expert has warned there could be trading "chaos" over the coming days. Several popular Bitcoin platforms are refusing to support the new coins.
