Transactions & deposits
“If the hard fork is to take place in the nearest future, we expect the suspension of all deposits/ transactions for about six hours. We strongly recommend our clients to refrain from making Bitcoin transactions during the hard fork to make sure your money won’t be lost due to the technical issues.”

What am I able to do?
“If you still worry about the circumstances of the hard fork, we recommend you to exchange bitcoins to any fiat currency available for Cryptopay users.
