Ending support for Bitcoin Cash SV (BSV) in the Blockchain Wallet
We're invested in the long-term health of the crypto ecosystem and are mindful to support cryptocurrencies that are reliable, safe, and convenient. Since January we've offered limited support for Bitcoin Cash SV (BSV) and have been closely monitoring activity of the BSV network since the hard fork in November. After careful consideration, we have determined to end all support of BSV within the Blockchain Wallet by May 15, 2019. If you have BSV, we recommend simply swapping it for another crypto in the Blockchain Wallet or sending your tokens to another service. To access your BSV tokens, log into your wallet through any web browser and select the Settings option on the bottom left, then Wallets & Addresses. On mobile You can log into your Web Wallet by logging into the Blockchain app and clicking 'Log in to Web Wallet' in the side navigation.

Tutorials and Guides - Blockchain Blog
At Blockchain, we know that crypto tokens thrive on decentralization and network effects: the more individual users of a network, the more useful and valuable the network's token becomes.

Tutorial: The Import / Export Feature in your Blockchain Wallet
You may have noticed the Import/Export feature in your Blockchain Wallet before, but didn't quite know what it is used for. Maybe you clicked it, but didn't go any further because of the *Advanced Security *warning message.

It's okay to proceed, but if you don't know what you're doing you should not make any changes to this section until you fully understand the implications. We'll walk you through this section, which should help give you a better understanding of what it's about and what you can do in this section.

Announcing Blockchain Airdrops
At Blockchain, we know that crypto tokens thrive on decentralization and network effects: the more individual users of a network, the more useful and valuable the network's token becomes. To bootstrap these networks, creators have increasingly turned to airdrops as a simple, transparent method of distributing free cryptoassets to a wide audience. We think that airdrops, when executed properly, have the potential to meaningfully drive decentralization and supercharge network effects. That's why we're thrilled to share a set of guiding principles that will inform Blockchain Airdrops. In a Blockchain Airdrop, token-based network creators distribute tokens directly to our users via our (almost 30 million!) wallets.

10 commonly used bitcoin terms explained
Anyone interested in bitcoin, from beginners to experts, all come across the same common bitcoin terms. To some of us, we already know what these terms mean. But to others, some commonly used terms are not always known or understood that well. This post serves to explain some of those most common terms in simple to understand language.

Blockchain.com Wallet announces that Bitcoin Cash services will resume in the next few days, and will follow the BCH ABC chain.
As many of you know, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) experienced a hard fork as planned on 15 November. As a precaution to ensure your funds were safe, we halted Bitcoin Cash services within the Wallet until we felt the situation was stable. Because one result of the fork was the emergence of another BCH chain (Bitcoin Cash SV), we have implemented a coin-splitting solution that allows us to safely resume Bitcoin Cash services in the Wallet. Please note, when we resume Bitcoin Cash services in the Wallet, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) will represent Bitcoin Cash ABC. We suggest that you confirm that the party you are transacting with is also using Bitcoin Cash ABC when sending or requesting BCH within your Wallet to avoid any loss of funds.

Stellar, now in the Blockchain Wallet, and giving out $125M of free crypto in your pockets.
The Blockchain Wallet is designed so users can control their crypto with ease and truly use it.

There are so many ways we could say thank you to our 30M (and counting!) Wallet users - but we narrowed it down to 125 million. Starting today, in celebration of adding full support for XLM in the Blockchain Wallet, we'll begin giving away $125,000,000 of Stellar (XLM) to YOU, our users. With nearly 30M Blockchain Wallets to date, we're excited to add an entirely new way for users to get their first crypto.
