Rebranding and ticker symbol changes - Bitcoin Cash (BCC), Legends (LGD) and Bitswift (SWIFT)

On Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 3 p.m. PT, Bittrex will begin the process of rebranding and ticker symbol changes for the following tokens:

  • Bitcoin Cash (BCC) - Ticker change to BCH. Name is unchanged.
  • Legends (LGD) - Ticker and name change to More Coin (MORE).
  • Bitswift (SWIFT) - Ticker change to BITS. Name is unchanged.

In order to make this change, Bittrex will need to take the BCC, LGD and SWIFT markets offline for at least three hours. If we encounter unexpected technical challenges, the markets will remain offline until we address those issues.

During this renaming process all orders, pending deposits and withdrawals will be canceled. All modified assets will be shown as the new names and tickers once the change is complete. Customers that use Bittrex APIs will need to change the “market” and “wallet” parameters from the old tickers to the new tickers after the renaming process is finished. In addition, customers should be aware that this type of action causes a “price rediscovery” event, which may lead to a price adjustment. 

Customers should take this timing into consideration for any related transactions, and cancel any orders, pending deposits and withdrawals that you had in-progress on June 20, 2018.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, and we appreciate your patience as we assist the token teams in this process.
