Since the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork activated on August 1st, we’ve continued to monitor this emerging digital asset and confirmed in a brief update our decision to roll out limited support, in line with our users’ requests, within approximately 8 weeks.
We’re excited to share that, as of today, any user who had a Bitcoin balance in their Blockchain wallet when the fork activated, will be able to access the same amount in BCH.
Users can now store, exchange, and send Bitcoin Cash by clicking on General in the Settings menu of their web wallet . In the future, we may offer expanded support.
If you choose to continue to store your BCH, you’ll still retain full, exclusive access to these funds, which will always be accessible with your recovery phrase. Still curious about how Bitcoin Cash will work in the Blockchain wallet? Visit our Support Center .
