Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Hard Fork
Scheduled Maintenance Report for Kraken
Completed
Funding for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Bitcoin SV (BSV) has now been enabled. Deposits for BCH require 15 confirmations before being credited and BSV requires 30. If you generate an address for BCH the same address will be generated for BSV allowing you to split your coins when depositing to Kraken. We will continue to monitor the situation.

Update
Kraken will be crediting all clients who held BCH at the time of the hard fork with an equal balance of Bitcoin SV (BSV). As previously stated, the Bitcoin ABC chain will continue to be represented by the current ticker symbol of BCH. Kraken has launched three Bitcoin SV (BSV) trading pairs, BSV/BTC, BSV/USD, & BSV/EUR. As for funding, we are currently monitoring both the BSV and BCH networks and will not enable deposits or withdrawals in either token until we think it is safe to do so. Funding may be enabled sometime this week, though it could take longer. For more details, please see our new blog post: https://blog.kraken.com/post/1928/

Verifying
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) funding remains offline while we monitor the outcome of the hard fork update. Please note that, as previously announced, the BCH ticker symbol on Kraken now refers to the Bitcoin ABC chain of Bitcoin Cash. All current balances of BCH now represent tokens on the Bitcoin ABC chain. At this time we do not have an estimated timeframe for bringing BCH funding back online.

In progress
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) funding has been taken offline in preparation of the upcoming hard fork update. Until funding is brought back online, BCH withdrawals cannot be sent, nor will any funds sent to a BCH deposit address be credited. After the hard fork, we will monitor the situation closely and bring funding back online only once we believe it is safe to do so. BCH trading remains online. We do not currently have an estimated timeframe for bringing BCH funding back online, but we will provide updates once we have more information to share.
