1) If the fork occurs, your assets will be safe. We plan to support withdrawals for various versions of Bitcoin, arising from the split(s).
2) During the events leading up to the fork and during the occurrence of the fork, we will monitor the situation until the effect of the fork can be ascertained in order to maintain the safety of our customers’assets.
