Bitcoin Cash (BCH): EXMO Supports the Protocol Upgrade

The Bitcoin Cash code update is supposed to be held every 6 months due to the project’s roadmap. The next update 0.21.0 will take place on May 15, 2020.

EXMO обновления

To implement and test the update, today, at 11 AM UTC, we will turn off the deposits and withdrawals of BCH. No worries, this is only a temporary measure, as soon as we make sure that the new protocol works correctly, we’ll immediately return all the functions.

We remind you that trading for pairs with BCH is still available!

Update 0.21.0

According to the developers, the updated protocol will open up new functions:

  • Increased transaction chain limit from 25 to 50.
  • OP_REVERSEBYTES opcode support in script.
  • Improved counting of signature operations using the new “SigChecks” method.
  • Support for a miner-activated infrastructure funding plan.
