Announcements > Ethereum Hard Fork Plans July 15, 2016

Today the Ethereum foundation announced plans for an Ethereum hard fork to recover the funds from the DAO exploit.

This hard fork is planned to occur at block 1,920,000, which should be on July 20th or 21st depending on your time zone.

In anticipation of this hard fork we will suspend all deposits and withdrawals starting at block 1,919,744 (approximately one hour before).

We will reenable deposits and withdrawals when we are confident that the longest valid chain has been clearly decided.

During this time exchange trading, margin trading, and margin funding will all continue to operate as usual.

Upon re-enabling deposits and withdrawals we will put up a notice on the website as well as bitfinex.statuspage.io, and Twitter (@bitfinex), so please monitor any one of these mediums to stay up to date.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to let us know, you can email us at [email protected]
