On July 11, 2019 we are changing the ticker of BCHABC to BCH, and BCHSV to BSV. Transactions and trading in BCH, BCHABC, and BCHSV will be unavailable 15:00–15:05 UTC.
After the works are completed, BCH (old) trading will be stopped permanently.
All the balances in BCH will be converted 1:1 to BCHABC and BCHSV.
BCHABC will be renamed to BCH, and BCHSV will be renamed to BSV.
The old BCH will be renamed to BCHOLD and if you need to check your history, you’ll see it under that ticker.
For BCH(BCHABC) and BCHSV(BSV) old and new tickers will be supported simultaneously for all API calls where tickers are used as requests parameters. Market Data requests without explicit ticker specification will return new ticker names only.
For FIX users nothing will change, so you don’t need to worry.
Why is it happening?
BCHABC and BCHSV tickers appeared during the BCH fork. By allowing our users to trade what was then known as Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHABC) and Bitcoin Cash SV (BCHSV), we were encouraging the free choice of our community to support either of the new chains.
Over time, the general public has accepted BCHABC as the successor to the original BCH.
