Ethereum (ETH): Ethereum is capable of responding proactively to the scalability issues. Since multiple cryptocurrencies are battling for the top spot, Ethereum needs to make a solution for its issues to maintain in one of the top places. 

Bitcoin cash(BCH): Bitcoin cash updated its website with the roadmap that is divided into three sections as scaling, usability, and extensibility. The design requires upgrades to make the product better.
