Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Update

August 12th, 2017

Shortly before August 1st, we announced that BitGo would provide a tool to deal with the BCH fork. Like others, we didn’t have enough lead time to support the BCH fork on the day it launched. The bad news is that we’re late completing the tool we promised to enable movement of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) coins from BitGo wallets. We sincerely apologize for the delay. But the good news is that when our support for BCH wallets arrives, it will be far more comprehensive than originally described.

Due to strong customer interest BitGo will enable full support of Bitcoin Cash. You’ll soon find a new coin in the BitGo interface and be able to fully send and receive BCH from your BitGo wallet:

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Update 1
All BitGo users with BTC balances prior to the Aug 1st fork date will see their BCH balances within the BitGo interface. The BitGo API will also support BCH, utilizing the new BitGo V2 platform. Developers will be able to access wallets and send coins with same unified interface as used for Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple, and Royal Mint Gold. API documentation is available here. If you’re an exchange interested in listing BCH and need an enterprise-grade, multi-signature wallet, please contact us.

Thank you for your patience — our first priority is security of your coins. We will deliver the new product as soon as we can, but not until we are confident that it is fully ready. Because of the lack of tooling and lack of a testnet for BCH, this is taking a bit more time than expected.
