Their website read: “Within the next 8 weeks, we’ll be rolling out limited support for BCH via the settings panel in your Blockchain Wallet. Users with balances of bitcoin in their Blockchain Wallet on August 1st will be able to access an equal balance, as of August 1st, of bitcoin cash.”

Why is Blockchain Giving Limited Access to Bitcoin Cash?

Peter smith, founder of Blockchain, tweeted why they were going to provide limited support for BCH. He said “current options for users are sub-optimal and many users have request help accessing their bitcoin cash.” In this sense, it appears more users need assistance gaining access to their BCH.

Blockchain guarantees Exclusive Access to BCH Funds

Furthermore, the blog suggested that users should not worry about losing their BCH. They will have total, exclusive access to their bitcoin cash funds so long as they stored bitcoin on prior to August 1. Their site elaborated:

“While no immediate action is necessary, rest assured that your funds are secure. Blockchain wallets are non-custodial and you hold the private keys, meaning you always have full, exclusive access to your funds — which are always accessible with your recovery phrase.”
