Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Hardfork Policy and Impact on BitMEX BCHUSD Perpetual and BCHZ20 Futures Contracts

As mentioned in our previous post, Bitcoin Cash will undergo a hard fork on 15 November 2020. Two BitMEX contracts (BCHUSD and BCHZ20) and two BitMEX indices (.BBCH and .BBCHXBT) will be impacted and will follow one side of the fork only.

These markets will be open during the fork and the contract and index names will remain the same. After the fork is completed, these products and indices will follow the Bitcoin Cash Node.
