Information on the ongoing event of Bitcoin Hard fork

Chronology of foreseen events:

  • July 31, 2017: Suspended bitcoin related operations

  • August 1, 2017: The event of hard fork and chain split (resulting in two tokens “Bitcoin” and “Bitcoin Cash”)

  • After August 1, 2017 (hours, days, or even weeks): Unocoin will resume their services after there is a clear majority in support for the Bitcoin and reduced chance of confusion between the two chains.

Dear Unocoin users,

Unocoin would like to bring to your notice about the stance we have taken in the light of an ongoing hard fork (chain split) in the bitcoin network (initiated on August 1st).

We have already suspended a greater part of services pertaining to bitcoin transactions (such as sending, receiving bitcoin) on our platform from 31st July. This means, the coins stored in your Unocoin wallet are absolutely safeguarded from the ongoing network discrepancies and will be available to transact once the ambiguity of network support is attained.

In the current situation, Unocoin is technically not equipped to support both “Bitcoin” & “Bitcoin Cash” simultaneously and is looking forward to extend the support for “Bitcoin” only.

As Unocoin has no control over the happening Bitcoin fork, there is no way of predicting when Unocoin will be able to resume the services again. Our services will be re-enabled when the network has been deemed safe (ie when the results of the fork are clear and significant).

Users are advised to stay up-to-date with more updates on Unocoin services by following us on Twitter & Facebook

Thank you for your patience and understanding during a time of critical update in the network.

Unocoin Team
