Temporary Extra Confirmations on BitCoin Payments

Starting today, Sun Jul 23 2017 Bitcoin confirmation times and counts will be longer than usual for appx 4 weeks.

Astutium Ltd, the first UK based web host to accept bitcoins and the first ICANN accredited domain registrar to take payments in crypto-currencies continue to support both traditional and alternative/peer-to-peer payment methods.

However due to the impending fork/split/changes we are extending our wait-for-confirm from the usual 6 confirmations to the network recommended level of 30 confirmations to prevent bitcoin loss / double-spends / etc

More details about the bitcoin network split can be at https://bitcoin.org/en/alert/2017-07-12-potential-split
