Ledger Wallet users were unable to access Bitcoin Cash in the past day due to a parser break with the new version of Bitcoin-ABC, the Bitcoin Cash node. The company reported on its website it has fixed the problem, and that all systems are currently operational.

The company updated users on its website and on Reddit and Twitter over the past day as it worked to fix the problem.

Ledger Wallets: Funds are Secure

Prior to fixing the problem, Ledger Wallet yesterday advised users that their funds were secure and they could receive transactions. Customers were advised that they could use Electron Cash to access funds in case of an emergency.

Resyncing the nodes took more time than originally expected, the company noted, as monitored the situation.

Ledger Wallet copied all blockchain data from one explorer to another. The explorers then had to resync with the BCH blockchain since April 6 at 00:00.

“Once we’re sure that everything is running smoothly, we’ll apply our patches to Ledger blockchain explorer and the BCH daemon before we sync the rest of our infrastructure,” a notice said on the company website.

Ledger Wallet also posted updates on Twitter and Reddit.

At 11:36 a.m. UTC, all BCH servers were up to date and the situation was considered to be resolved, the company noted.

Users Complain

Ledger Wallet users complained on Reddit that the situation was not resolved 20 hours after the break occurred. Customers were unable to access their wallets and no transactions were visible.

Some customers feared they had sent funds to the wrong wallet.

“It’s disappointing to see such an issue taking so long to resolve, I would’ve hoped for more professionalism from Ledger, but it seems like they treat Bitcoin Cash as a minority token with a very low priority,” one user commented yesterday on Reddit.

Another user noted that after 109 confirmations of a BCH transaction the transaction still had not appeared on the ledger. Another commented that a better-placed status page by Ledger Wallet would have saved them from having to go to Reddit to find out what was happening. Several customers expressed appreciation for the fix on Twitter.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Price Watch: Ready for Uptrend Confirmation?

Bitcoin Cash Price Key Highlights Bitcoin Cash also formed a double bottom reversal pattern and appears to be inching past the neckline. In that case, this could confirm that bulls are back in the game and ready to take price much higher from here. Technical indicators are still reflecting the presence of bearish pressure, though. Bitcoin Cash is attempting to break past the neckline of its reversal pattern to signal that an uptrend is in the cards. Technical Indicators Signals The 100 SMA is still below the longer-term 200 SMA on this time frame to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the downside. In other words, there’s a good chance that the downtrend might still be able to resume. Then again, the gap between the moving averages has narrowed enough to suggest that a bullish crossover is imminent. Once that happens, more buyers could rush in and sustain the climb. The chart pattern spans around $650 to $800 so the resulting rally could be of the same height. However, RSI is already hovering at overbought levels to indicate that buyers are feeling exhausted at this point. Similarly stochastic is indicating overbought conditions and could be ready to turn south, so Bitcoin Cash price might follow suit. BCHUSD Chart from TradingView Market Factors Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin Cash price drew strong support from news that institutional investors are looking into the space. Most notably, BlackRock reportedly formed a team to look into investments in the space, and confirmation early this week allowed rallies to resume. This could continue to support investors’ optimistic views that a rebound could ensue in the industry after a rough second quarter. Traders are also noting the regulatory developments in South Korea as a reason to see more legitimacy and security in the industry.
