Happy to get the extra BTC

I don't vouch for EC or HITBTC but it worked. Use at your own risk.
Did pretty much the same but with trezor's beta wallet instead of Electron Cash. Now Changelly is supposed to support BCC/BCH as well, and be an alternative to HITBTC.

Similar, except used a second PC (with no existing wallets on it) for electron, so had to restore from seed (which is now retired). Sold at viaBTC, which required 20 BCC blocks before the funds could be withdrawn (but only 1 block before trading). YMMV; UAYOR

So if someone has say 1 bitcoin, and does this, it's worth at current rates, ~400 usd?

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

And you get to keep all the OG BTC... Why have I not done this?

I blame reddit for not informing me.

And as I checkr/bitcoin it looks like coinbase is going to support bitcoin cash next year.

Yes, you get to keep all the OG BTC.

Now that the fork has happened, it's it's own thing. Just the same as if you sold all your Ethereum it wouldn't affect your BTC holdings. Also just the same as Ethereum, OG BTC, and any other coin - you sell because you think it is overvalued. You should research. It's never easy to pick the best play in crypto lol, especially when it comes to statements of "sell all X and put it all in Y right now".

this is the way to do it except you dont want to reuse the electrum accout whose seed was used with EC. as i understand it the reason you dont need to enter your seed is because its done automatically on install. the danger is with EC now having access to your BTC if they are not legit.

Once I have claimed it, where can I hold it?

I tried using the coin splitter function but it said my account didn't have sufficient funds and only provided one account option. Is this function down right now or is Trezor viewing my Bitcoin as being from after August 1?

So you're saying just create a new electrum wallet after transferring around the BTC.


Edit:

Also along this premise should you just delete and then reinstall electrum or just make a new wallet, and that is good enough?

Ya it feels strange, seems like there's new 'free money' every month.

Another Byteball distribution this Sunday as well.

Dumped my Bcash today and can't help but wonder who the hell is buying the other side???

I used Changelly.

It took ages to confirm and the exchange rate wasn't great but I'm impatient and I just wanted to dump them ASAP

For those who want to split coins, just use google and search name of wallet + bitcoin cash and you will find a few helpful articles.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

I have my private keys ready to collect my bitcoin cash, but which wallets can I now do this with? Should I wait for more trusted ones?

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

Just wanna confirm that I was able to take BCH off electrum via Electron Cash and use hitbtc to convert it to bitcoin which I now have. Feels good man.

Only lame part is I start all this last night, transfer from EC to hitbtc takes forever so I go to bed, even though I chose the fastest send option and paid more for it, and wake up to BCH being $40 less than it was in the morning.....

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

^^

Also just wanna say that when I was trading there was a open chat, and a guy in the chat named "GoGetIt" not me, said that bitcoin was going to be traded on the new york stock exchange today.

At first I thought like a chat bot using my name was talking, but I never set up a user name on there. But it was kinda surreal.

Also it seems that this fake gogetit is a bad source of info as google pulls up nothing about this recently.



Edit:

And bitcoin on a tear today looking at all time highs in like 2 hours if it keeps going.

Can you explain step by step how did you get this done? I have electrum and did not do this step yet because because mentioned that electron cash wallet was not legit etc.


Where did you send your bitcoin to during this process? Also did you need to use a 2nd computer to do this?


Thanks.

Total dumb luck/laziness. I had ~2btc on bittrex from selling the last byteball drop. I tried withdrawing at the end of the month but I was too late. Sold the ~2 bcash at .32. Then I sold my remaining bcash at .11 via shapeshift.

Now I wake up this morning to a new ATH.

I'm keeping all these airdrop profits in a separate wallet. Free money feels pretty good.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

Even with this recent pump it's hard to believe there aren't going to be at least some negative repercussions from Bcash.

Ideally it will quickly drop to low single figures and everybody forgets about it, otherwise there could def be some tarnishing and confusion surrounding the 'Bitcoin' name, especially with the less informed.

Re: Bitcoins - digital currency

Has anyone who stores their BTC on a Ledger Nano S successfully "claimed" their BCH/Bcash? Part of the process confuses me and I don't want to risk ****ing it up.

Heres how I went from BTC in my Electrum PC wallet to cashing out BCC:

1.Had some BTC in the Electrum wallet held through August 1st so i was due BCC but Electrum doesn't handle BCC yet.

2. I transfered all BTC on my Electrum to an online exchange for security reasons. Could have sent it to another Electrum wallet on another PC of mine if i wanted too.

3. Installed Electron Cash (EC) wallet on my PC that had the empty Electrum wallet.

4. EC automatically showed the BCC I was due. Listed as Not Verified btw. No special seeding needed.

5. I sent the BCC from EC to the HITBTC exchange, Took 3 hours to get there. Transferred it to a trading acct. within HITBTC. Then Traded BCC for BTC. Transferred all the BTC to my other online exchange. Could have sent it to a new Electrum wallet on a different pc if I wanted.

Happy to get the extra BTC

I don't vouch for EC or HITBTC but it worked. Use at your own risk.
