The Breadwallet cryptocurrency wallet will start to support the BitcoinCash (BCH) from 14 August. Thus, Breadwallet will become one of the first mobile wallets with Bitcoin Cash support. This is reported by the Bitcoin.com

In the meantime, the application will provide a one-time send function for users who want to move their coins to the time of the full implementation of the start-up. The project team believes that the BCH network must withstand, and in the future plans to introduce full support for BCH.

Our current plan is to add a simple feature to the existing Breadwallet app, that will let users send their entire balance of BCH to an address of their choosing. This operation can only be done once, and your entire BCH balance will be sent to the address provided. Your BTC will not be affected in any way.

The company informs users that along with the new functionality there will be certain shortcomings, for example, when sending a BCH balance, the transaction will be publicly associated with all addresses in the wallet. In addition, the announcement says that the company does not recommend sending BCH to the address in the Breadwallet application itself.

So far, not many mobile wallet operators have expressed their desire to introduce BCH support. Nevertheless, companies such as Jaxx and Airbitz are going to add it soon.
