Japan’s largest and best-funded Bitcoin exchange, bitFlyer, unveils its plans concerning the upcoming Bitcoin hardfork. Thus, unlike many other companies, the company is going to support the new cryptocurrency - Bitcoin Gold.
As detailed, bitFlyer is to distribute Bitcoin Gold (BTG) to users prior to the split of the Bitcoin blockchain, as well as to launch trading services in support of the new cryptocurrency, enabling users to sell, deposit and send BTG from their bitFlyer accounts.
We will credit you with an amount of BTG corresponding to the amount of Bitcoin (BTC) in your bitFlyer account prior to the split. 2 If the BTG split is deemed by bitFlyer to be permanent and secure in regards to customer assets, you will be able to own both BTC and BTG in your bitFlyer account.

According to the company, Bitcoin Gold withdrawals and deposits will be enabled by the exchange “after sufficient observation of the stability in the BTG chain after the split”.
