WazirX will support the Bitcoin Cash hard fork

By November 6, 20182 minute read

Namaste tribe! As you’re aware, the upcoming Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork is scheduled for 15th November, and we’re happy to confirm that we support the hard fork.

What does the fork mean for me?

Remember how Bitcoin’s hard fork in August 2017 led to the creation of a new blockchain and currency — BCH? Similarly, the Bitcoin Cash hard fork will result in the creation of a new blockchain — Bitcoin SV or Bitcoin ABC, and currency — BCHSV or BCHABC. After the hard fork, you’ll get BCHSV or BCHABC equivalent to the amount of BCH you’re holding on WazirX before the hard fork. For example:

👉 Before the fork: If you’re holding 10 BCH in your WazirX wallet
👉 After the fork: You’ll have 10 BCH + 10 BCHSV or BCHABC


👉 Snapshot time: We’ll take a snapshot of your BCH holdings at 10PM IST on 15th November, 2018. You’ll get the new BCHSV or BCHABC tokens based on the amount of BCH you hold at 10PM on 15th November

👉 BCH Withdrawals will be suspended at 2PM on 15th November, 2018

👉 BCH Deposits will be paused at 7PM

👉 BCH Trading will be paused from 9:50PM to 10:10PM, i.e., 10 mins before and after the snapshot

What do I need to do?

Nothing! If you’re holding BCH on WazirX, you don’t need to do anything at all. We will handle all technical requirements to ensure a smooth transition for you. We will also make an announcement after the snapshot is complete, and when deposits and withdrawals for BCH resume.

You can earn 1% bonus on every BCH, BTC, ETH, XRP, TRX & LTC deposit on WazirX before 16th November! Hurry up, and participate here!
