We at Bitcoin India™, our top priority is the safety of users' funds and security of the network, customer demand, trading volumes; we always spend extensive time in designing, building, testing and monitoring our systems continuously in order to ensure that the digital assets which we support remain safe and more secure.
We are not always the first exchange in adding any altcoins, but when we do, we make sure that we’ve invested significant time and care into supporting it securely. We believe this is the best approach for Bitcoin India™ to maintain customer trust and safety of their funds.
Over the last few days, our development teams have investigate all of the relevant concenrs and have decided to work on adding support for Ethereum (Byzantium Hard Fork) for our users.
Based on the above stated factors, we at Bitcoin India™ Organization loved to immediately support Ethereum (Byzantium Hard Fork) which is one of the Ethereum (ETH) derivative, which will be born out of the desire to ensure the security of network operations and the safety of our users' assets/tokens.
Today, on 15th October 2017, we have planned to update our servers by 4:00PM IST, to handle "Byzantium Hard Fork", in order to credit our Bitcoin India™ users who would hold Ether (ETH) in their account balance at the time of the hard fork (which will likely occur between 12:00 UTC and 13:00 UTC on Monday, October 16, 2017) with matching number of Byzantium, if Byzantium Hard Fork happens as scheduled.
More updated to follow soon; we really appreciate everyone of our users patience on this regard.
