Cryptocurrency Pricing & Blockchain Forks

The ETX Crytopcurrency prices are derived from an underlying market exchange feed and the market-makers with which we trade.

The decentralised ledger which records all Cryptocurrency transactions is the blockchain. If there is an instance where the software of different Cryptocurrency miners becomes misaligned, a split, or 'fork', in the blockchain may occur, resulting in the existence of two different blockchains.

In order to minimize disruption Cryptocurrency users have historically quickly agreed which version to accept as valid and continue to use. Where this has happened the old version of the blockchain has then been discontinued.

When one version isn't discontinued this is known as a hard fork and ETX will usually follow the blockchain that has the majority consensus of cryptocurrency users.

ETX reserves the right to determine which blockchain has the majority consensus behind them.

If the hard fork results in a viable second cryptocurrency becoming available on exchanges and market-makers we have access to, then at our absolute discretion, we may create an equivalent position or cash adjustment on client accounts to reflect its value, however we will have no obligation to do so.

When a hard fork occurs, there may be substantial price volatility during this period and ETX can suspend trading at any time without further notice if we do not have reliable prices from the underlying market or the market-makers we trade with.
