Popular cryptocurrency wallet Blockchain has added Bitcoin cash with full functionality through the same web wallet Indian users.
“With Bitcoin Cash joining our existing lineup of digital currencies, users now have a full suite of options and can easily toggle between digital currencies to send and request funds, safely manage balances, and monitor market prices – all from one central place,” the company said in a blog post.
If you had bitcoin in your Blockchain wallet prior to August 1, users will see an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash in your wallet. Just like with bitcoin and ether, users hold their Bitcoin Cash private keys, meaning they always have full, exclusive access to their funds with their backup phrase.
Blockchain will be rolling out full support for Bitcoin Cash on mobile by the end of first quarter of 2018.
With the addition of Bitcoin Cash, Blockchain is now the largest digital wallet provider for bitcoin, ether and Bitcoin Cash with over 20 million users, the company added.
The price of bitcoin rose over 10 per cent to 1.99 million yen ($17,594) this month, coinciding with its futures debut on a major US stock exchange.
