What is a ‘hard fork’ and how does Revolut handle them?

A hard fork happens when a cryptocurrency's code changes, resulting in an old and new version. The developers of cryptocurrencies introduce a new version of the software which creates two parallel blockchains, leading to the creation of a new cryptocurrency.

We'll evaluate how to handle potential hard forks on a case-by-case basis, and we can't guarantee support for new cryptocurrencies. Ahead of time, we'll communicate if we plan to accommodate any new cryptocurrencies resulting from hard forks.
