Update: Ethereum Classic (ETC) Deprecation on BitOasis

We would like to inform you that Ethereum Classic (ETC) will no longer be available for trading or storage on BitOasis starting Friday 15th of January 2021 12:00 PM UTC.

The decision has been made by our team after evaluating the protocol performance and the regulatory requirements that we need to meet in 2021. At BitOasis, we carefully make such decisions with our main priority being the safety and security of users’ assets along with being compliant with regulatory requirements.

You will still be able to buy/sell, deposit/withdraw ETC until Friday 1st of January 2021 12:00 PM UTC. After this date, the only options available will be the ability to sell or withdraw ETC to and external wallet up until Friday 15th of January 2021 12:00 PM UTC. We encourage you to take one of the below steps:

  • Convert your ETC balance to another token that is supported on our platform before the planned deprecation date.
  • Sell your ETC balance to AED at the time you find most suitable as long as it is before Friday 15th of January 2021 12:00 PM UTC.
  • Withdraw your ETC balance to an external wallet.

Important Note: After the date of deprecation (Friday 15th of January 2021), any remaining Ethereum Classic (ETC) balances will be converted automatically to Bitcoin (BTC).

We understand how this step might cause inconvenience to you. Hence, our customer support team will be available to assist you through our support channel. Simply reply to this email or submit a support ticket through our support page and we will be ready to help you.
