Listing information

We will be performing system maintenance and upgrades on Sunday 9th February at 2pm (AEDT). We expect this to last approximately 4 hours and during this time you will not be able to access your Independent Reserve account.



Bitcoin SV (BSV)

Bitcoin SV was created out of the hard fork of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on November 16, 2018.

The BSV community wanted to increase the blocksize for greater transaction speed and limit potential smart contract features. 

Tether (USDT)

USDT is a token that is designed to mirror the value of the U.S dollar. It was developed to create a stable cryptocurrency that can be used like digital dollars.

Coins that serve this this purpose of being a stable dollar substitute are reffered to as "stable coins".


BSV from the BCH fork

Customers who chose to leave BCH in their Independent Reserve account during the BCH-BSV fork will be credited BSV automatically after this deployment. To be credited BSV you must have had BCH in your Indepenedent Reserve account at 3:40am Sydney time on November 16th, 2018. Any BCH deposits made after this date will not result in BSV being credited to your account. You can check this by going to your Accounts page, and selecting the Transaction History tab, and then selecting the BCH currency filter.
