Dear ViaBTC users:
On January 20th, 2018, at block height of 505050, a hard fork will happen on Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain and create a new blockchain asset - Bitvote (Token: BTV; Website: http://bitvote.one/). Bitvote (BTV) increases its blocksize to 8MB and adopts SegWit, which to a large degree has improved it transaction efficiency. BTV supports CPU mining with CryptoNight algorithm and has a total supply of 21 million.
On January 20th, 2018 (Block height 505050), ViaBTC will take a “snapshot” of every user’s BTC balance at the fork time. On the basis of “snapshot”, we will allocate BTV to your CoinEx account (www.coinex.com) against a 1:1 ratio on your ViaBTC BTC assets.
BCH mining, deposit and withdrawal will remain available in ViaBTC during BTC forking period.
How to get BTV in CoinEx
For your convenience of buying or selling BTV after the fork, we will allocate your BTV assets to your CoinEx account.
