Managing the Bitcoin Cash SV hard fork

A hard fork of Bitcoin Cash took place on November 15, 2018. This hard fork resulted in two independent chains and coins, Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV. The Blockchain Wallet supports Bitcoin Cash (BCH), following the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain. The Blockchain Wallet does not support Bitcoin Cash SV.

If you intend to try to access funds on the SV chain, please be extremely cautious about wallets or services that ask for your 12-word recovery seed or offer to split your coins. They may be able to steal all your digital assets, not just your Bitcoin Cash.

Additionally, please note that Bitcoin Cash ABC and Bitcoin Cash SV addresses will look identical. When sending Bitcoin Cash to an external party or platform, please confirm that the third party you are transacting with is also using Bitcoin Cash ABC. If you send funds to the wrong address, your funds may be lost.
