Support for the WAX (WAXP) blockchain upgrade

WAX (WAX) will be upgrading their blockchain from an Ethereum ERC20 token to a new mainnet blockchain, which will become operational on June 30, 2019. Bittrex will conduct a one-time token swap to the mainnet on August 29, 2019, after which the ticker symbol will change to WAXP.

All WAXP users will retain the balance of their WAX addresses, which will be migrated to the new blockchain under the WAXP ticker symbol.

Users' WAXP Bittrex exchange balance totals will reflect the same WAX total that they had prior to the swap in a 1:1 manner. Tokens held on exchange during the swap will not be staked and will not be eligible for WAX's Genesis Block Member program. Once the swap is complete, all ERC20 tokens from the old blockchain will no longer be supported or traded on Bittrex.

Bittrex will re-enable the WAXP wallet when we and the WAX team agree the migration is satisfactory.

Note: Wallets will be closed for deposits and withdrawals at 12:00 PM PST on 8/29/2019 (7:00 PM UTC on 8/29/2019). If any WAX deposits you had sent to Bittrex are not settled by then (marked as pending), you may not be credited with WAXP.

We would like to thank the WAX team for working closely with us.
