Ethereum (ETH) will undergo a hard fork & upgrade at the block height of 7,280,000 (expected to happen on March 01, 2019, GMT+8). BTEX will do the following responses for this upgrade:
1. Before the hard fork (at 1:00 GMT+8, March 1, 2019), we will suspend deposits and withdrawals of Ethereum (ETH) and all ERC20 tokens. All relevant tokens can be traded normally during the upgrade. It is recommended that you deposit the tokens in advance to BTEX, and we will help you with technical problems in the hard fork. Don’t worry.
2. When the block height reaches 72,800,000, we will take a snapshot of user holdings of ETH on BTEX. Accounts in scope for the snapshot include Exchange Account, Contract Account and Margin Account. If any candies are produced during the hard fork process, BTEX will distribute candies based on snapshot data. The distribution rules are as follows:
1） Exchange Account: Candies will be distributed according to the ETH holding snapshot amount.
2） Contract Account: Candies will be distributed according to the snapshot ETH holding amount.
For the above accounts, ETH less than 0.0001 will not be included in the snapshot. Amount in unfilled/frozen orders will be included in the snapshot.
3. We will release another announcement once the official website becomes secure and stable and resume deposits & withdrawals.
Thank you for your support of BTEX!
