What is BCH?
BCH is a cryptocurrency that resulted from a hard fork of Bitcoin on the 1st of August 2017.
It is totally independent from BTC and has a strong following. The main reason for the fork was to allow for scaling to the masses by increasing the block size.

Why has this taken so long?
Every Fork follows a new set of rules and might cause new problems for our platform. This could result in an unpleasant experience with Coinhako or even affect the integrity of our system.
As Coinhako prioritizes the safety of our users and their funds, we have been carefully reviewing the inclusion of BCH in our platform and ensuring that it does not have a negative impact on our system.
We are always excited to add new technology to our platform and we sincerely hope that you will enjoy this new cryptocurrency. Nevertheless, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and for the delay in BCH’s release.
