Gemini, which lists Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin and Zcash, began support for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on Saturday, December 8.
In their announcement, the exchange explains its stance on the recent contentious Bitcoin Cash fork that produced two rivaling networks: Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV.
“At this time, we will only be providing support for the Bitcoin ABC network and we will be referring to it as Bitcoin Cash with ticker: BCH. We have added replay protection to all BCH withdrawals from the Gemini platform to ensure transactions are only valid on the Bitcoin ABC blockchain. Any cryptocurrency sent to Gemini over a blockchain that we do not support, such as Bitcoin SV (BSV), will be invalid and irrecoverable. We are continuing to evaluate Bitcoin SV over the coming weeks or months, and we may or may not choose to support withdrawals and/or trading of Bitcoin SV in the future.”
Fully compliant and regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS), Gemini is the 64th largest crypto exchange worldwide with $16.4 million in 24-hour volume, based on data compiled by CoinMarketCap.
The Gemini Mobile App is available on Android and iOS.
