15th November 2018 - Bitcoin Cash fork

Update 11th Dec 2018 3pm ADST

Bitcoin SV (BSV) has been added as a new coin and trades are now enabled. Customers who had Bitcoin Cash at the time of the fork have received the equivalent Bitcoin SV in their accounts.

This completes our work for the November 2018 Bitcoin Cash fork. Happy trading!


Update 7th Dec 2018 4pm ADST

Bitcoin Cash deposits, trades and withdrawals are now enabled. We have followed general industry consensus and consider BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

We plan to list BCHSV as Bitcoin SV (BSV) and anticipate trading to be enabled early next week and will update this announcement in due course.


Update 28th Nov 2018 5pm ADST

Unfortunately there is still no clearly dominant fork. However, we are seeing the industry generally favor ABC over SV, and we are evaluating doing the same.

We will continue to monitor how the industry responds to the fork and will continue to update this announcement once we know more. There is no ETA at this stage.


Update 16th Nov 2018 10am ADST

At this stage there is no clearly dominant fork. Due to the lack of replay protection and inconsistent policies across the industry, we have determined that it is not safe to resume trading Bitcoin Cash at this time.

We will continue to monitor the post-fork events and update this announcement once we know more. There is no ETA at this stage.


Initial announcement

Cointree would like to confirm support for the upcoming Bitcoin Cash hard fork and will upgrade our systems to support the Bitcoin ABC client protocol.

We will take a snapshot of all Bitcoin Cash balances in the early morning of 16/11/2018 (Melbourne time). Deposits, withdrawals and trades of Bitcoin Cash will be suspended prior to the snapshot and the fork.

Please leave sufficient time for deposits to be processed in full prior to this time.

We will handle all technical requirements involved for all users holding Bitcoin Cash in their Cointree accounts.

We will make a separate announcement after the snapshot is complete to notify users when deposits, withdrawals and trades for Bitcoin Cash will reopen.

For further information, please refer to the official announcement Bitcoin Cash 2018 Nov Upgrade

Thank you for your support!
