As detailed by the team, if the minority chain has significant value, Blockchain.info will make that value available for customers to hold or exchange for a period of time, as they did with Bitcoin Cash. If the minority chain is the one with 1MB blocks, the company plans to call it BC1. If the minority chain has 2MB blocks - BC2.

Some users even started to withdraw funds from this popular wallet.

Singapore users need not only to create an account, but also to link it to an account in the local Xfers payment service, which provides cryptowallet approved by local regulators.

It is noteworthy that earlier Xfers was a partner of Coinbase, when the latter launched its services in Singapore, but relations between the companies were terminated.
