MIGRATION NOTES

Important information

Beta $handles will expire

$handles not claimed on HandCash 2.0 from the beta on January 31st, 2020 at 00:00 CET will become available to new users.

About current backups

Your HandCash 2.0 account is a totally new account, that means that your old Google Backup or 12 words seed will not be needed anymore after the migration. You'll have to write down and keep safe your new Recovery Phrase

Family accounts

Currently we will allow assigning only one $handle per phone number, but we will be adding family accounts soon, being able to restore multiple HandCash accounts with just one phone number.

Beta $handles will stop working

The $handle system will stop working for beta users right after the launch of HandCash 2.0, only QR code and legacy transactions will work since then.
