Comprehensive List of Segwit2x Stances for Exchanges

Sites updated as of: November 7th, 7:00 PM EST

With the upcoming Segwit2x fork of the Bitcoin network, we felt it prudent to notify our users of how it may affect their cryptocurrency portfolio and balances. The Segwit2x hard fork will occur at block 494,784 on approximately November 16th, 2017.

Below is a comprehensive list on cryptocurrency exchanges/services and their stances on Segwit2x. As some sites have switched sides, just having signed the NYA does not by itself show support for Segwit2x. If an exchange was not included in the below list, our team could not find any announcements for said exchange. Any name in bold is an exchange.

We will try to update this list as we can, and please do not hesitate to let us know if we missed a site’s announcement.  Find our list below:
