Gatecoin makes no promises/guarantees/warranties to support Forks. The rationale for not supporting Forks is simple; fundamentally we believe that is it our duty to act in a manner that is in the best interests of the majority of our platforms users. With this is in mind and given the uncertainty of potential technical risks such as security, compatibility, and liquidity combined with the substantial costs associated with supporting each Fork, Gatecoin, therefore, does not support Forks.
We will continue to monitor the situation and may reconsider our position in the future. In such cases, we will makea public announcement regarding the specific Fork(s) via our blog, and twitter feed. However, in general, platform users should manage their digital assets if they want to ensure access to funds on all Forks. Therefore it is advisable for users to withdraw affected digital assets in the event of a Fork.
Please Note: Our customer support team will not answer questions about potential or proposed Forks. Any announcements regarding Forks will be communicated via our blog (https://blog.gatecoin.com/), twitter feed (https://twitter.com/Gatecoin) and FAQs (https://support.gatecoin.com/).
