As the two Bitcoin Cash (BCH) chains prepare for launch, cryptocurrency companies have courageously nailed their colors to the mast. Recall that CryptoBlockWire reported that plans were underway to hard fork BCH, which would culminate in two unique chains. As expected, BitPay, a Georgia-based Bitcoin payment provider, has joined a long list of crypto industry giants throwing their weight behind Bitcoin ABC. Cryptocurrency exchanges Coinbase and Binance had earlier supported Bitcoin ABC.
BitPay refused to dabble in the debate over the proposed launch of BCH hard fork. However, in its blog post, BitPay said that it would root for the primary software implementation of the blockchain, Bitcoin ABC.
In its blog post, BitPay announced that it would settle for the primary software implementation of the blockchain called Bitcoin ABC. It nonetheless disclosed that it has no provision for migrating from Bitcoin ABC implementation to an entirely new implementation yet. Regarding the safety of BCH transactions, BitPay gave some advice for BCH users. In fact, the company warned users that sending transactions within the period of the hard fork could pose a risk.
