Starting today, November 11th, Bitcoin Cash will be temporarily removed as a payment method in anticipation of a new hard fork taking place on November 15th.
What is a Hard Fork?
A hard fork refers to the BCH network splitting into two chains, each following their own protocol. As a result of the split, these new chains will not have ‘replay protection’ meaning that transactions performed on one version can be replicated on the other.
The BCH network will need time to settle and reach an agreement; once this happens, we will notify you that BCH is once again available on site.
What Do I Need to Know?
- Your Café Casino account and any previous deposits made with BCH are safe.
- If you currently hold any BCH funds, we strongly recommend refraining from using BCH at least 24 hours before the hard fork (Nov. 15th) and until network consensus is reached.
- Any pending withdrawal requests remaining in the system after the removal of the option will be processed as normal.
- Until the network settles, keep your BCH in your wallet where you control your private keys (backed up with a 12 or 24 word mnemonic phrase)
How can I make a deposit during the outage?
To ensure you can continue to play at Cafe, we’d recommend using Bitcoin (BTC) until BCH is available once again.
Updates will be sent by account messages and/or onsite notifications, including when BCH will be available once again. For any additional updates, please check this thread.
