Blockchain.com Wallet Confirms ‘Limited Support’ for Bitcoin SV
Major crypto wallet Blockchain.com adds partial support for Bitcoin SV, but notes it has no plans to offer full functionality for the crypto at present.
Blockchain.com, formerly Blockchain.info, confirmed Tuesday that users have some of the same options with BSV as with its four other hosted cryptocurrencies — Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum (ETH) and Stellar (XLM).
“We have been tracking Bitcoin SV chain [sic] closely and will now offer limited, close out transaction support for Bitcoin SV (BSV). You will be able to view your balance, exchange BSV for BTC, BCH, ETH, and XLM through Swap, and send BSV to any address,” the blog post reads, continuing:
“We do not have plans to enable full BSV functionality at this time.”
“We will continue to monitor activity of BSV to determine how long we will maintain limited support and we’ll make sure to keep you updated on any service changes!” the blog post concludes.
As part of the wallet’s support for the cryptocurrency, users who held BCH tokens in their Blockchain.com wallet prior to the fork date will now be able to use a dedicated coin splitting tool to retrieve their duplicate BSV balance.
The tool mimics that used by Blockchain.com in 2017, when BCH forked off from the BTC chain.
