The Hard fork itself is not really going to have a major affect on Bitcoin , it was simply the creation of a new altcoin ( Bitcoin Cash ) which will likely be about as successful as ETC is compared to ETH. While a significant amount of the hashing power went with Bitcoin Cash , the majority of the market stayed on the BTC chain, so not very much has changed except that there is a new altcoin with decently large market cap and hashing power. Bitcoin Cash in itself could do fairly well too, just like most cryptocurrencies. Many people are making the assumption that only one coin can survive, which is the exact same thing people said during the ETH hardfork, but the evidence clearly shows that both chains can survive, and thrive, at the same time.
