HitBTC will support the upcoming Ethereum (ETH) Constantinople hard fork. It includes five separate Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs) and is taken as a step to transit from the Proof of Work (PoW) protocol to a more energy efficient Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm. As expected, this update will make the ETH network faster and less costly to operate.
Please leave sufficient time for deposits to be processed in full prior to the block height shown below. We will handle all the technical requirements involved for all users holding Ethereum in their HitBTC accounts, please be assured that funds will be safe.
We have always supported all the significant forks, endorsed by the community and oriented towards improving the blockchain ecosystem. We were amongst the first to support BCH and ETC forks, and users can be assured that their accounts will be credited for the different forks if any occurs.
