Bitcoin Cash Network Upgrade

The next Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork is scheduled for this Thursday, Nov 15, 2018 at approximately 04:40PM UTC. uses an implementation of Bitcoin Cash called Bitcoin ABC, and we have not made any plans of changing to a different implementation of Bitcoin Cash. As this is a contentious fork, there is a possibility of the network splitting into two chains.

Performing any transactions after the scheduled hard fork is considered risky. We advise merchants to cease transactional activities on the point-of-sale for a few hours prior to the hard fork, and for as long as required after the hard fork until the network stabilises. will closely monitor the event and post another update once we determine that payment risks have passed.
