Blockchain Wallet, one of the most popular wallets in the cryptocurrency world, has announced adding limited support for Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

We’ve been closely monitoring Bitcoin Cash (BCH) since the hard fork on August 1st and wanted to provide a brief update to our users.

Thus, according to the announcement, within the next 8 weeks, limited support for BCH will be added via the settings panel in the Blockchain Wallet. As the team claims, the users with balances of Bitcoin in their Blockchain Wallet on August 1st will be able to access an equal balance, as of August 1st, of Bitcoin Cash.

It's also noteworthy that earlier the Blockchain Wallet team argued that the company would not support the hard-forked version of Bitcoin. 

On top of that, about a week ago added support for Ethereum cryptocurrency.

Crypto Investor to File Lawsuit Against AT&T

Michael Terpin believes that AT&T helped scammers to still his $24M worth crypto

In the Los Angeles District Court, a 69-page lawsuit was filed by BitAngels founder Michael Terpin against the American telecom giant AT&T. Terpin claims that the operator assisted fraudsters in "stealing digital personal data" from the account on his smartphone, which is why he lost $ 24 million in cryptocurrency, according to an official release.

According to Terpin, for seven months, there were two hacks. Initially, an attacker got access to his phone number without providing a password or correct identification data. Later, the phone number was used to steal crypto.

AT&T’s studied indifference to protecting its customers’ privacy and financial assets is a metastasizing cancer, threatening hundreds of millions of unsuspecting AT&T’s customers. Our client had no idea when he initially signed up, nor when later he was promised the highest level of security for his account, that low-level retail employees with access to AT&T records, or people posing as them, can be bribed by criminals to override every system that AT&T advertises as unassailable.

Michael Terpin requires AT & T to pay him $ 224 million - $ 200 million for moral damages and $ 24 million for actual theft.
