The Plan For August 1st

In anticipation of upcoming disruptions on the Bitcoin network, SwCPoker will be temporarily pausing all deposits and withdrawals on August 1st at 8:00 UTC.

On August 1st at 12:20 UTC, “Bitcoin Cash” will fork away from the Bitcoin network. At that time, games will be paused and a snapshot of player balances will be taken. Deposits and withdrawals will be re-enabled as soon as possible, at a time we deem safe. We expect this to be less than 12 hours after the event, but it will depend upon the stability of the Bitcoin network.

SwCPoker does not endorse “Bitcoin Cash,” and will remain a Bitcoin poker site. However, we will allow players the opportunity to withdraw the “Bitcoin Cash” derived from their Bitcoin balance. The process for “Bitcoin Cash” withdrawals will be announced shortly after August 1st.

Update at 12:30 UTC: The snapshot is complete.
Update at 15:30 UTC: Deposits have now resumed.
Update at 19:00 UTC: Withdrawals have now resumed.
