The 411 on the Bitcoin SegWit2x Fork
We wanted to give our customers an update on the upcoming Bitcoin SegWit2x hard fork in November 2017.
We operate by the principle that our customers should benefit to the greatest extent possible from hard forks or other unexpected events.
Customers with bitcoin balances stored on Coinbase at the time of the fork will have access to bitcoin on both blockchains.
There is no action required from customers and bitcoin can be securely stored on Coinbase before, during, and after the fork.
We are currently working on the engineering and security requirements for each bitcoin blockchain — as well as continuing the work to enable Bitcoin Cash withdrawals.
