I nervously watched the chaos during the 2018 Bitcoin Fork Wars from the sidelines. Those who paid attention consolidated all their UTXOs on the chain they favored least and some even fell victim to replay attacks. They had to do this so they could sell their stash. This led to the mass deanonymization of Bitcoin users on both chains. Currently, a similar situation is unfolding with the upcoming Taproot soft fork. Although there is little chance for another chain split this time, it’s still worth clarifying Wasabi’s fork policy:

Even though we have our own preferences at Wasabi, we will prioritize what’s best for our users.

Wasabi Wallet will support both sides of any meaningful bitcoin fork. We will not withdraw our support until we are sure our users are given enough time to sell the less successful side of the fork without compromising their security or privacy.
