ActivTrades policy on hard forks
A fork is a change to the software of the digital currency that creates two separate versions of the blockchain with a shared history.
Forks can be temporary, lasting for a few minutes, or can be a permanent split in the network creating two separate versions of the blockchain.
ActivTrades actively monitors protocol developments and works hard to ensure customer funds are safe in these events. In the case that one version isn’t discontinued – known as a hard fork – we will generally follow the blockchain that has the majority consensus of cryptocurrency users, and will therefore use this as the basis for cryptocurrency contracts. In order to determine which fork to support, we look at factors such as size of the network, market value and customer demand.
If the hard fork results in a brand new cryptocurrency becoming tradeable on exchanges we have access to, then in our absolute discretion, we may create an equivalent position or cash adjustment on client accounts to reflect its value, however we will have no obligation to do so.
When a hard fork occurs, there may be substantial price volatility around the predefined fork event, and we may suspend trading throughout if we do not have reliable prices from the underlying market.
Please bear in mind that due to the unregulated nature of cryptocurrencies, trading CFDs on cryptocurrencies is high risk. These markets are extremely volatile with limited liquidity. You should ensure that you fully understand how blockchain technologies work prior to investment.
ActivTrades reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to stop taking new open positions on cryptocurrencies upon breach of internally set limits for net company exposure on cryptocurrencies.
