We are pleased to announce that Bitfinex will support the Ethereum Classic (ETC) hard fork. The ETC hard fork, called "Atlantis", will take place when the block height reaches #8,772,000 (on approximately 13/09/2019), according to an announcement on the ETC website.

Please deposit your ETC to Bitfinex in advance to ensure the safety of your digital assets. Bitfinex will handle all technical matters relating to the hard fork on your behalf.

Deposits and withdrawals will be suspended on 12/09/2019 at 08:00AM (UTC). Services will be resumed when the ETC mainnet is stable. Please refer to our further announcements on the resumption time. During this period, the ETC held in your Bitfinex account will not be affected.
