BCH will undergo a hard fork this Sunday, meaning a change in business as usual for fans of the BTC-derived alt-coin.

What does this mean for BCH?

BCH will split into two assets

There are two competing fork proposals: BCH ABC and BCHN.

What does this mean for BCH on Newton?

**The timeline for disabling of these features has been accelerated as per our custodian's request– BCH support will now be paused as of 11:50pm ET on Thursday, November 12th.**

On the day of the fork (11/15/20):

  • BCH will not be available to buy, sell or trade
  • BCH will not be available to be used to fund your account, or to withdraw from your account.

After the fork:

  • Of the two variants created from the fork, whichever of the two assets that does not inherit the BCH name will not be carried on Newton.
  • BCH support platform-wide will return to normal when the network has stabilized.

Further updates will be posted as more information becomes available.
