A cryptocurrency hard fork is a change to the software of the coin/token that creates two separate versions of the blockchain with a shared history up to a certain block height, and differs beyond that block height. When a hard fork occurs, two currencies are created and owners of wallets that held the original cryptocurrency at the time of the hard fork are eligible to claim the new cryptocurrency.

Blockbid has decided that it will not support hard forks, unless explicitly stated otherwise, usually via announcement.

Therefore, if you know of an upcoming hard fork and you would like to have access to the forked coin, you will need to remove the associated cryptocurrency from Blockbid onto a platform or personal wallet that supports the hard fork.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

While Blockbid will take into account all user feedback or issues arising from any forks on the Blockbid exchange, our central priority is the security of our user’s assets and the integrity of each coin. If we feel that this is compromised, we will let our users know.
