As previously shared, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) experienced a hard fork on November 15th. The main outcome of the fork was the splitting of the Bitcoin Cash chain into two chains, and therefore two tokens – Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin SV. This means that anyone that held 1 BCH before the fork would end up with 2 tokens after the fork – 1 BCH (ABC) and 1 BSV. Last month, we implemented a coin-splitting solution that allowed us to safely resume Bitcoin Cash services in the Wallet, with BCH representing Bitcoin Cash ABC. This coin-splitting solution preserved users’ balances on the Bitcoin SV chain.
We have been tracking Bitcoin SV chain closely and will now offer limited, close out transaction support for Bitcoin SV (BSV). You will be able to view your balance, exchange BSV for BTC, BCH, ETH, and XLM through Swap, and send BSV to any address. We do not have plans to enable full BSV functionality at this time.
To access BSV services and your BSV tokens, log into your wallet through any web browser and select the Settings option on the bottom left, then Wallets & Addresses. On mobile? You can log into your Web Wallet by logging into the Blockchain app and clicking ‘Log in to Web Wallet’ in the side navigation.

We will continue to monitor activity of BSV to determine how long we will maintain limited support and we’ll make sure to keep you updated on any service changes! Have questions? Feel free to reach out to our Social team and support team for help.
