This will probably come as old news to a lot of you but if this comes as new information to you please read on. As you can probably decipher from the title of this post this is a short and simple article to inform those who may not be aware of the fact that the popular decentralised Ethereum based cryptocurrency exchange, ForkDelta, have officially moved to their own web host and web domain as of August 15th 2018.
You may or may not have noticed in the past that, as with EtherDelta, ForkDelta were using their Github repository to power their exchange application but this is no longer the case. The decision to change to their own self-hosted website came after what is an apparent eviction notice from the GitHub team, possibly due to using a large percentage of the company’s resources.
The change in hosting and web domain should not pose much of a hinderance to most users as there is a notice which explains the domain change when you visit their old web page. However, the only thing which is a problem for those who imported their private key to the old service is that they will have to reimport it on the new domain.
The new ForkDelta domain is a lot easier to remember (forkdelta.app) which should assist with bringing new blood to their ecosystem. As with all domain changes in crypto there is a slight danger of phishing attempts so please ensure that you are using the correct domain before entering any private keys into the ForkDelta website, although I have not personally seen any attempts reported as of yet.
As always do your own due diligence and you should be fine.
