Bitcoin Cash Added to Keepkey Wallet, Exchanges in India and Hong Kong
Bitcoin cash (BCH) adoption by cryptocurrency companies is continuing, offering new options for users. It has now been added by a hardware wallet to its software client as well as by two more exchanges in Asia for trading. Furthermore, over 4,500 merchants in India may soon be able to accept payments in BCH.
Bitcoin Cash on Keepkey
All of the wallet's users that were holding BTC at the time of the fork on August 1, 2017 and have not yet claimed their BCH, will see that bitcoin cash is listed at the bottom when they open their bitcoin account in the Keepkey software. They can also now add a bitcoin cash account to send, receive, and exchange BCH with Shapeshift. For complete instructions see here.
Big Community Support in Asia
Hong Kong-based exchange Kucoin has announced that a bitcoin cash market has been added to the platform, enabling its users to start trading six new pairs using BCH on Wednesday. Explaining the move, the company wrote that: 'The community has expressed the desire to be able to trade with more flexibility. Kucoin's primary objective is to provide a diverse trading platform to all users.'
In addition to trading, bitcoin cash holders may soon be able to use BCH to pay in thousands of stores and restaurants across India. Mohit Lalvani, the CEO of Quikwallet, a payment processor that serves over 4,500 merchants in India, told news.bitcoin.com today that bitcoin cash support be added to the service in about a month. 'The obvious reason was high fees and confirmation times, which is why we decided to add BCH support since BTC became unusable.'
