Bitcoin Cash: Update

Dear Bitstamp Ltd customers, In response to the high levels of customer demand for Bitcoin Cash (BCH), we will distribute corresponding BCH balances and enable BCH support by the end of September 2017. Now that the stability of the newly created fork has been confirmed, we have also decided to add support for BCH trading as well. The following pairs will be available: BCH/BTC, BCH/USD and BCH/EUR.

To recap, in July we advised our customers who wanted their BCH funds immediately to withdraw their BTC before the hard fork occurred. Since the safety of the funds under our custodianship comes before all other considerations, this decision was taken to ensure the continued stability and security of our platform. All customers who had bitcoin balances at the time of the fork now have an equal quantity of BCH safely stored at Bitstamp.

Stay tuned for further updates on Facebook, Twitter and our website about precisely when BCH support will be available.

In the meantime, with BTC, XRP and LTC all available (and with 0% fees still available for ETH), there is still plenty of trading to do. Click here to trade now!
