Bitcoin Segwit2x is a proposed change which is intended to improve the speed and cost of Bitcoin transactions. If the upgrade is not universally accepted, it may temporarily create two Bitcoin blockchains via a fork of the Bitcoin network.
To learn more about forks, check out our blog post.
Are my funds currently on Coinbase safe?
Yes. Any funds on Coinbase before, during, and after the fork will be continue to be stored securely.
When exactly will the fork happen?
The Bitcoin Segwit2x fork will take place when block #494,784 is mined. This is projected to happen on November 16.
Will a new asset be created following the fork?
Yes. The result of the fork will be two different blockchains, which means there will be two distinct digital assets.
What will Coinbase call these two blockchains?
Following the fork, we will continue referring to the current bitcoin blockchain as Bitcoin with the symbol ‘BTC’. We will refer to the new blockchain resulting from the fork as Bitcoin2x with the symbol ‘B2X’.
If the Segwit2x change is accepted by most users, we may choose to rename these blockchains at a later date.
What action do I need to take? Do I need to withdraw my funds from Coinbase to have access to B2X?
No action is required on your part. All Coinbase users with a BTC balance at the time of the fork will automatically be credited with an equal balance of B2X.
What if my buy order was in progress during the fork?
You will only receive B2X for the amount of bitcoin present in your account at the time of the fork. Pending BTC purchases at the time of the fork will not be granted any B2X.
For example, if you buy 1 BTC on November 16 with a bank account, this purchase will likely be pending for 5 business days as we wait for your funds to be transferred from your bank. In this circumstance, you would receive your 1 BTC after the fork, but would not also be granted 1 B2X.
Will Coinbase be operating as normal during the fork?
We will disable buys, sells, sends, and receives for bitcoin approximately 8 hours before the fork. We will re-enable bitcoin services as soon as possible afterward.
Will I be able to buy/sell/send/receive both types of Bitcoin on Coinbase?
Coinbase will support buys, sells, sends, and receives for both BTC and B2X. Services for both chains may be disabled several hours before and 24-48 hours after the fork. We’ve posted a general timeline here, and plan on sharing more specific details as we get closer to the fork.
Is there replay protection built in to Bitcoin Segwit2x? Do I need to take any precautions before sending B2X from Coinbase?
Because Bitcoin and Bitcoin Segwit2x will have identical blockchains up until the point of the fork, it is possible to send the same transaction on one chain and then “replay” it on the other. This can lead to inadvertently sending both BTC and B2X funds at the same time. In order to prevent this, developers must implement a protection mechanism into their software which prevents replays from occurring.
Bitcoin Segwit2x does not have any built-in replay protection, but Coinbase has implemented our own replay protection system. You can safely send any BTC or B2X from Coinbase without worrying about replays on the other chain.

In September, Hacken presented their platform at the world’s biggest ICO Pitch Competition at the 9th edition of the d10e Conference, was chosen among the top three, and won the prestigious award of 33 BTC.
Hacken is the first custom-tailored decentralized token for cybersecurity professionals. It is based on Ethereum platform.

to the blockchain-based HackenProof Vulnerabilities and Countermeasures Certificate, uniquely issued for each project.
The services will be provided by a community white hat hackers centered around HackIT — the major Eastern European cybersecurity conference conducted annually in Kharkiv, Ukraine
What is Hacken Ecosystem?
This token sale will also enable us to create the community center for incubating and growing various cybersecurity projects imagined and developed by our community members. Participating startups are going to be selected by public board of cybersecurity and computer technology experts. The very first talents are going to be selected during HackIT 2017. We will sign option agreements with the teams that were selected by the public board. After the completion of acceleration program, we will execute our option, which should cover around 25% of the equity. HackIT Conference
HackIT is an annual international forum on cybersecurity held in Kharkiv, Ukraine. The first HackIT Conference gathered 450 participants from two countries, the second had 650 participants from six countries. Besides the traditional speaking panels featuring local and international experts, HackIT runs a number of specialized cybersecurity competitions, which are free for everyone to participate. These are: HackIT Online CTF, Battle of Hackers, Cyberdetective OSINT Challenge and HackIT Cup. Please see our white paper for more details on each competition.

Hacken will support bright technology experts, by financially rewarding their original and previously undisclosed zero-day research. For this purpose we will create a remuneration fund that will specialize in acquiring unreported zero-day vulnerabilities. The plan is to invest a substantial amount of funds raised during this token sale in the research of regulatory and legislative framework in major jurisdictions, in particular — Europe. The ultimate goal is to create a transparent regulatory environment for our fund before it starts operations. Cybersecurity Analytics Center
We are going to create a team of analysts, who will perform fundamental cybersecurity research, as well as monitor and audit existing and upcoming cybersecurity products. Our team will then provide outstaffed corporate cybersecurity research, expert clearance and independent research and comparison of these products. The primary areas of research for the Center team are: blockchain security, vulnerabilities and countermeasures; classification, comparison and market research of cybersecurity products; cryptography, secure communications and data.
