Bitcoin Cash Trading Now Available on GDAX

We’re happy to announce that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is now listed and available for trading on GDAX.

We made the decision to list BCH by considering such factors as customer interest, developer support, network security, market capitalization, trading volume, and our Digital Asset Framework. You can read more about Bitcoin Cash on our FAQ page.

The following order books have been created and will remain in post-only mode until there is sufficient liquidity for trading:

  • BCH–BTC
  • BCH–USD
  • BCH–EUR

Bitcoin Cash was created by a fork of the Bitcoin network on August 1st, 2017. All customers who held a bitcoin (BTC) balance on GDAX at the time of the fork have been credited an equal balance of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in their GDAX account. Your BCH balance will reflect your BTC balance at the time of the Bitcoin Cash fork, which occurred on August 1, 2017 at 13:20 UTC (block #478559).
