BitMarket's statement regarding BitcoinGold fork activation in Bitcoin network.
What will change in our service during those days ?
BTG deposits and withdrawals have been enabled on the 1st of December 2017 13:00 GMT.
Deposits are credited after 6 confirmations.
On Thursday at 11:00 pm CET there will be a maintenance which will last one hour. During this time we will credit BitcoinGold according to captured balances and open BTG/PLN market.
Deposits and withdrawals of BTG will not be available for the time being, they will be implemented later on.
We reserve the right to decide whether to support or not BTG market at any time in the future.
BitCoin Gold balance was calculated on 24th of October at 3:20 a.m.
Buy/sell transactions made after this time mark will have no impact to your initial BitCoin Gold ( BTG ) balance.
We would also like to inform you that the BTG balance which was accounted on 24th of October will be visible once developers of Bitcoin Gold finish their work on preparing Bitcoin Gold wallet and the official main network. Currently we are unable to confirm that due to the lack of the BTG blockchain any other than the testnet.
Due to the fact that the Bitcoin network will split into two different blockchains (BitcoinGold fork is set to the block #491407 i.e in the morning on 24th of October ) we would like to assure you that all your deposits are safe. Above event will not affect any of PLN/EUR/LTC/BCC functionality and only BTC market will be affected.
3 hours before the fork, Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals will be turned off for about 6 hours. We reserve the right to extend that period if it will be necessary (e.g stability of the network) to ensure that your funds are secure. During the time of the fork we will not allow to place orders in the BTC market for a while to capture all your BTC balances. We will inform about that in the announcement bar in the upper part of the service.Rules about granting BitcoinGold are the same as they were with BitcoinCash fork. BTG Balance will also include funds allocated in SWAP contracts and all the sell offers as well. Security deposits coming from Margin Trading will not count to the balance of your newly created tokens.
Due to the security reasons and because this fork is connected with some controversial opinions we cannot say for sure that we will open trading market for BTG. After the calculations your new balance will be visible in exchange however you will not be able to withdraw your tokens until our team finishes all technical work.
We remind you that Bitcoin technology is still under development and in a beta phase thus we reserve the right to decide whether to support or not given fork of the Bitcoin at any time.
