According to the announcement, Bitcoin Cash is the fifth digital asset available on the Gemini platform, joining Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin and Zcash. Trading will begin Monday, December 10, with USD, BTC, ETH, LTC and ZEC pairs.
“Bitcoin Cash, a fork of the Bitcoin network, was recently forked into two distinct networks and blockchains: Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV. At this time, we will only be providing support for the Bitcoin ABC network and we will be referring to it as Bitcoin Cash with ticker: BCH,” reads the announcement. “We have added replay protection to all BCH withdrawals from the Gemini platform to ensure transactions are only valid on the Bitcoin ABC blockchain.”
The listing of BCH comes after Gemini recently received approval from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYSDFS) to offer trading and custody services to its customers.
