Bitcoin hard fork: our official statement

We would like to notify you that on August 1st, the Bitcoin blockchain will hardfork. This may lead to separated cryptocurrencies, the original Bitcoin (BTC) and the new Bitcoin Cash (BCC).

Whatever the outcome might be, the updates will influence blockchain stability. For this reason, on July 31 we will temporarily stop the trades until the network comes back to normal. It means that for a short while you will be unable to trade Bitcoin pairs on Changelly. Unfortunately, we can’t predict the timelines when Bitcoin gets back.

However, most probably that certain popular crypto pairs will still remain available for trading (e.g. ETH-LTC).

We strongly suggest you to keep your Bitcoins on wallets that provide your private keys. After the hard fork you will be able to import the keys and receive BCC in BTC equivalent. Store the keys in a safe place nobody else has access to.

We will keep an eye on the major trading platforms to see how the hard fork influences the market. Depending on these factors, we may consider BCC to be listed on Changelly.

Stay up to date with Changelly on Facebook, Twitter and Reddit.

If you have any questions about the forthcoming hard fork, feel free to contact us at support@changelly.com

Severe bug of Parity multisig Ethereum client

Severe bug of Parity multisig Ethereum client

Dear Customers,

Yesterday Parity, an Ethereum client, reported that 153 000 ethers worth $30 million were stolen due to the critical vulnerability of their multi signature wallet. The funds stolen potentially belong to ICO projects based on Ethereum, including Edgeless Casino, Swarm City, and æternity.

Being an anonymous exchange providing fully automated instant transactions, Changelly likely was up against the fraud and became the point the stolen money has been exchanged through. Supposed hackers might have used coinmixed and partially transferred the amount through Changelly.

Luckily, the Ethereum blockchain is transparent, so we have easily figured out and blacklisted the compromised wallet addresses. However, in order to completely protect funds from theft, there is a need for more measures to be taken.

Changelly is always ready to collaborate with wallets, exchanges and notable owners to improve security and data defense. Currently we’re in touch with the investigation team of Parity, Etherscan, MyEtherWallet and others.
