Important BCH Upgrade Information

On May 15th, 2021, BCH (Bitcoin Cash) will have an upgrade to bring improvements for merchants and users. It will undergo a process that will bring a handful of improvements. The following updates will be included: facilitating multiple OP_RETURNS; the removal of the unconfirmed transaction limit; the implementation of double-spend proofs, and a new mining block default limit size of 8 MB, as the inclusion of Cash Improvement Proposals (CHIPs) to introduce new specification changes to the protocol.

Nearly all of the key changes are destined to improve the experience of both users and merchants when using BCH to make in-store or online payments, reasserting the currency’s commitment with becoming a peer-to-peer cash-focused tool.

The BCH pairs will continue to be offered to our clients provided that our liquidity providers continue to offer pricing and execution. There is a possibility that the BCH pairs will go to Close Only mode for some hours during the process.

Please keep in mind that traders will only be able to close the open (existing) positions under the Close Only mode.
