UPDATE: Ether Classic and the Ethereum “Hard Fork”

We would like to keep you informed of the implications of the Ethereum “Hard Fork”

Due to the developing interest in ETC (Ether Classic or ETHC), we at Gemini would like to keep you informed of our ongoing work to best address the implications of the Ethereum “Hard Fork” which occurred on July 20, 2016 at 13:20:40 UTC. At this time, withdrawals of ether from Gemini exist only on the “Hard Fork” ETH branch and not on the ETC branch. We have not yet decided whether to open matching engines for ETC trading.

Our engineers are actively investigating the implications to customers who had ether balances on Gemini at the time of the “Hard Fork,” and to customers who have intentionally or unintentionally deposited Ether Classic into their Gemini accounts after the “Hard Fork.”

Thank you for your patience and support. We’ll be sure to keep you informed with additional blog posts as the situation evolves. If you have any questions, please contact support@gemini.com.

Onward and Upward!
