What BitMari Users Need to Know About the Bitcoin Cash Fork

Public Announcement Regarding  Bitcoin Cash Fork (known as BCC) that is scheduled to activate on August 1st.

To our users of the BitMari Bitcoin wallet apps, we  have no immediate plans to support BCC. Since these apps are true bitcoin wallets, users hold the private keys and have full, exclusive access to their funds. While users will not be able to observe a BCC balance or create BCC transactions with our apps at this time, it is possible to access BCC at a later date with additional software.

If you have a BitMari wallet, it is essential that you retain your wallets (or your backup words) and not delete them, even if you empty the BTC balance out of your wallets. While BitMari does not have any plans to write software to support BCC at this time, it is possible for third parties to build tools to allow access to BCC balances from BitMari wallets.

If you are considering withdrawing funds from exchanges that do not support BCC, it is safe to withdraw to the BitMari wallets. While it will require tools to be developed, any BCC balances will be accessible to you as long as you have the private keys stored in the app. For large balances, we highly recommend the use of the multi-sig capabilities in the BitMari wallets.
