“Some of [the] forks [currently under discussion] lack the replay protection feature that would be required for Gemini to safely support Bitcoin Cash. Because of this situation, we are delaying our launch of Bitcoin Cash deposits, withdrawals, and trading until late November, after the forks have passed and we can evaluate the health of the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem.”
Not long ago, Gemini declared it had anchored protection inclusion for custodied computerized resources from loaning administrations firm Aon, which will supplement its officially accessible Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) inclusion for U.S. dollar stores.
