At block height 12,965,000, or approximately 2021–08–05 11:55 (UTC), the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain is scheduled to undergo the London Hard Fork.
In the event that the hard fork might result in an additional token, BuyUcoin has taken the following steps to reduce the trading risks brought about by price volatility and to maintain the safety of user funds during the hard fork as per the following:
BuyUcoin will suspend ETH and ERC-20 tokens deposits and withdrawals at approximately 2021–08–05 00:00(UTC). Please ensure that you leave sufficient time for your ETH and ERC-20 token transfers to be fully processed prior to the above time. We will handle all technical requirements for users holding ETH and ERC-20 tokens on BuyUcoin.
The two likely scenarios to occur with the Ethereum (ETH) London mainnet activation are:
No new token is created. BuyUcoin will then resume ETH and ERC-20 tokens deposits and withdrawals as soon as possible. A further announcement will be posted.
The chain splits into two competing chains and a new token is created. BuyUcoin will credit users with ETH from the chain with the most work done. We will then also credit users with the token from the minority chain at a ratio of 1:1 based on the snapshot of ETH balances at block height 12,965,000, or approximately 2021–08–06 00:00 (UTC) as stated above. Further details regarding this distribution will be stated in a separate announcement.
BuyUcoin reserves the right to update the treatment of the chain split in a further announcement.
Classic & EZ OTC trading: ETH and ERC-20 tokens spot trading will not be affected. Please ensure you take sufficient risk measures as price volatility is often high during contentious hard forks.
