<p>We would like to notify you that we are having an upgrade where we can keep your Bitcoins in cold storage, whilst you are still able to use them as real BTC when selling. By this, we mean since it is the responsibility of LocalBitcoins to ensure that your coins are secure, placing them in our cold storage wallets will help us to achieve that, at the same time keeping your balance the same and not having any issues with your trades.</p>

<p>You are required to transfer the Bitcoins in your LocalBitcoins wallet to your new cold storage wallet by following the following simple steps</p>

<p>1. Click on your wallet balance</p>

<p>2. Enter your designated Cold Storage Address(below)</p>

<p>3. Enter your current balance in the Amount in Bitcoins section</p>

<p>4. Enter your password</p>

<p>5. Send the BTC .</p>

<p>Please note that your account balance will remain unchanged after this, but that should not be a cause for concern.</p>

<p>Your cold storage wallet is</p>

<p>1KGeE1nEhnk4zKV4M7v2MVuzS8oD9KCw6N</p>

<p>Please note that after you transfer your Bitcoins on LocalBitcoins to this wallet, your account balance will still remain the same. We hope this improvement will help in our goal to have 100% security on your valued Bitcoins. Please contact our customer support if you face any difficulties, and also understand that it may take time for our customer support to respond due to the many customers we have.</p>

<p>Regards,</p>

<p>LocalBitcoins Team</p>
