Potential changes to the bitcoin trading schedule from the 31st of July to the 4th of August

Cryptocurrencies the money of the future

Dear clients,

On the 1st of August, 2017, the bitcoin could be split into two separate assets; Bitcoin Classic and Bitcoin Limited.

While most of the established bitcoin trading community is against the idea of splitting the cryptocurrency, with the possibility of such an event taking place, there may be a high level of volatility on the market, which, coupled with low liquidity, increases the level of risk while trading.

We’d like to bring to your attention that, from the 31st of July to the 4th of August, 2017, Alpari reserves the right to make some changes to the trading conditions on the BTCUSD and BTCEUR currency pairs. Such changes may include increased margin requirements and spreads, and instruments may be limited to “Close Only” mode.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our specialists via our online chat service, through Viber, by email at or by telephone on 44 8449 869559.

Best regards,
