Wallets Ready For Bitcoin Gold: How To Be Prepared For The Fork?

Wallets Ready For Bitcoin Gold: How To Be Prepared For The Fork?

Only a couple of hours are left before Bitcoin Gold hard fork is activated. Even though November SegWit2X hard fork is more important for BTC future, plenty of people hope for free tokens. So where should we keep our Bitcoins in order to receive BTG? Which wallets are ready for Bitcoin Gold? Bitcoin Gold is an interesting project, which aim is to furtherly decentralize the cryptocurrency. Due to implementation of Equihash algorithm, resistant to application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), BTG will be mined using GPUs. In contrast to SegWit2X, Bitcoin Gold hard fork is meant to be friendly towards the main chain and wont compete in order to get the title of real Bitcoin. Because of that, there are less doubts concerning tomorrows division. In particular, there are no doubts about double-spending. You can read more about Bitcoin Gold in our previous article . All hard fork guides constantly say that users should keep their BTC on such address where the user is able to control his private keys. What does it mean in practice and how should we pick the right wallet? As of wallet choice, the safest option would be to choose any recommended by Bitcoin.org website. For some people the easiest way is to use desktop wallet, such as Electrum or GreenAddress . Individuals who care about higher control and security can keep their Bitcoins on full wallets, such as Bitcoin Core or Knots . Different tools that might prove valuable are BitGo , Armory and Bither . After wallet was installed, its crucial to export data with private key addresses. Its the data that will allow us later on to login in to chosen wallet supporting Bitcoin Gold and get access to due tokens. In case of Electrum, all you have to do is to export keys from menu to generate the desired file. If an address with Continue reading >>

Retrieving Bitcoin Gold From Electrum : Bitcoinmarkets

Retrieving Bitcoin Gold From Electrum : Bitcoinmarkets

I tried searching here but wasn't able to find anything. I want to claim my BTG from an Electrum wallet that was holding my BTC around the Bitcoin Gold fork. I have already claimed and converted my BCH from that wallet. I have tried to Coinomi approach but I'm getting a message saying there are not funds available in that wallet. Has anything new been released on how to claim from Electrum yet? Also, since I have claimed my BCH with Electron Cash did I expose myself and possibly get my Bitcoin Gold stolen/lost? Edit: Hi guys I swept the private keys again from my Electrum wallet using the QR code and setting up a Bitcoin Gold Coinomi wallet. It worked. Just waiting on confirmations. Maybe I was just doing it wrong the first time. Continue reading >>

How To Claim Your Free Bitcoin Gold [btg] From Any Wallet

How To Claim Your Free Bitcoin Gold [btg] From Any Wallet

How To Claim Your Free Bitcoin Gold [BTG] From Any Wallet By: Sudhir Khatwani In: Bitcoin Last Updated: I am assuming that you know about Bitcoin Gold already. But if you dont, check out these write-ups on Bitcoin Gold: Will We Really Lose Bitcoin In The SegWit2x Fork? In short, Bitcoin Gold is a new cryptocurrency that forked out of Bitcoin last week (late October 2017) from the block height of491407. Before the fork, CoinSutra had published detailed instructions for our community so that they could benefit in the future. And that moment of the future has now come! Update: Ledger wallet users should read this tutorial to claim BTG If you were not tracking the fork or not reading CoinSutra and have left your Bitcoin in an exchange that is not supporting BTG after the fork, then you are out of luck. On the other hand, I would like to congratulate our community readers who heeded our advice of keeping their BTC in the Ledger Nano S , Trezor , Mycelium , Jaxx, or other similar wallets, and are now lucky enough to be eligible to claim BTG. Also, these forking events are a timely reminder for all of us that one should never trust exchanges and should always be in control of their own private keys. Note: The fork has already been done and some exchanges have already credited users their BTG tokens. And remember these are only tokens, not actual BTG, given and traded by these exchanges. However, users who had their BTC on a wallet at the time of the fork where they control their seed/private key will be able to claim BTG through the process which I am going to elucidate in this write-up. Another thing is that users will be able to claim BTG only once the BTG blockchain is live, which is going to happen in early November. I will update this section again with the new and lates Continue reading >>

A Beginners Guide To Claiming Your Bitcoin Gold (and Selling It)

A Beginners Guide To Claiming Your Bitcoin Gold (and Selling It)

A Beginners Guide to Claiming Your Bitcoin Gold (and Selling It) Heres what you can do with your BTG now that the blockchain is alive and well. This is a re-write of A Beginners Guide to Claiming Your Bitcoin Cash (and Selling It) . Please note: Everything in this article is just advice based on our best understanding of the current situation. Bitcoin Gold (also referred to as Bgold, and trading under the ticker BTG) launched November 12, 2017. Since the Bitcoin blockchain technically forked on Bitcoin block 491407, anyone who held bitcoin (BTC) on October 24, 2017 should have an equivalent amount of BTG attributed to their Bitcoin private keys. In our beginners guide to surviving the Bgold and SegWit2x forks , we explained how to secure your private keys so you could be sure to access your BTG and B2X. The B2X fork has since been suspended by the leaders of that project, however, and it currently seems very unlikely to happen in any serious way. As such, this follow-up article explains how you can claim (and potentially use) your BTG only your BTG. Good news: Bitcoin Gold enforces strong replay protection. This means you cant accidentally spend your BTC when you mean to spend BTG or vice versa. As such, if you dont care about BTG at all right now, you dont need to do a thing. You can just keep using bitcoin as you always have. If you ever change your mind (and dont lose your Bitcoin private keys in the meantime), you can still claim your BTG at any point in the future. Likewise, if you want to hold onto your BTG long term, you also dont need to do anything right now. You can keep using BTC as if nothing happened; just make sure to never lose your private keys. (In both these cases, however, it could come in handy to keep a record of the Bitcoin addresses that stored y Continue reading >>

Digital Bitbox | Bitcoin Gold

Digital Bitbox | Bitcoin Gold

In October 2017, the Bitcoin blockchain was cloned, or "forked", to create a new cryptocurrency coin called Bitcoin Gold (BTG). As a consequence, anyone possessing Bitcoin (BTC) at the time also automatically received BTG. You can decide to keep BTG or sell it or ignore it as you wish. Some exchanges will allow trading it. The Digital Bitbox firmware natively supports Bitcoin Gold, but the Desktop app does not and likely will not in the future. However, Bitcoin Gold can be accessed by exporting your private keys into a third party wallet that does support BTG. Step-by-step instructions for one possible way to access your BTG follow below. This example uses the popular Electrum software to display private keys and the Coinomi Android wallet to access the BTG. IMPORTANT: To access your BTG without compromising your BTC, be sure to first 'split' your coins. This can be done using the Desktop app by creating a new wallet and moving the BTC from your current wallet to the new wallet. This requires switching wallets using the micro SD card. Only your BTC will move and not your BTG because the BTG blockchain has implemented replay protection. Wait until the transaction is confirmed on the BTC blockchain. The BTG remains in your old wallet. WARNING: We have and claim no relationship with Bitcoin Gold or any third parties supporting Bitcoin Gold. We cannot vouch for the safety of any BTG software or application or at this time. The following instructions are provided for those who wish to access their BTG quickly and are willing to assume the risk of potentially losing coins. Plug in your Digital Bitbox with the backup micro SD card inserted. Create a new wallet by resetting the device. Send your coins to the new address. If this step is skipped, the private keys protecting you Continue reading >>

How To Claim Bitcoin Gold (btg) From Electrum Wallet

How To Claim Bitcoin Gold (btg) From Electrum Wallet

As I recently found out, claiming Bitcoing Gold from Electrum wallets by importing the seed is not possible because Electrum use a custom algorithm for deriving the seed words that is not compatible with the industry standard BIP39. However, I discovered a way to claim BTG from Electrum using the Coinomi wallet and bitaddress.org. Itrequires a lot of manual operations and might be impractical if you want to reclaim BTG from multiple addresses on a well-used Electrum wallet, but I only had to work with ~40 addresses, and it took me less than 10 minutes to do everything. Here is what you need to do. First and most important: if you keep Bitcoins on the same address(es) which you will claim BTG, move them to a different BTC wallet/address. BTG splitting requires direct access to your private keys and you should consider them compromised and unusable from that point onwards; that is why you must move your BTC funds elsewhere. Do not proceed past this sentence until you have moved your BTC safely to a different wallet. To get your Bitcoin Gold, you need the following: Access to your Electrum wallet(s) that have had balances prior to block 491406 mined around 1:17am UTC on 24. October 2017 A working copy of Coinomi on your Android mobile device (sorry, no iOS or desktop version) In summary, you have to do the following: (1) Extract all private keys from the Electrum wallet; (2) Expunge the keys that cant have BTG balance (spent/unused); (3) Generate a BTG wallet in Coinomi; (4) Sweep remaining keys into the BTG wallet. A full description of each step is given below. Open Electrum and go to Wallet Private Keys Export. Select location for the export file and choose CSV format. After export is finished, open the CSV file in the text editor. Exporting your private keys from Elec Continue reading >>

How To Claim Bitcoin Gold (btg): A Step-by-step Guide

How to Claim Bitcoin Gold (BTG): A Step-by-Step Guide Last updated on November 25th, 2017 at 06:38 pm On October 24, 2017, a new type of Bitcoin was created: Bitcoin Gold . This altcoin has the same abilities of Bitcoin, but its mining algorithm works a bit differently. Most importantly, its easier to mine with home equipment like GPUs. Anyone who held Bitcoins before the time of the creation of Bitcoin Gold is eligible to receivean amount of Bitcoin Gold (BTG) equal to the amount of Bitcoins (BTC) they had. For example, if you had 1 Bitcoin before the split (aka the Bitcoin Goldfork ), youll now have 1 Bitcoin and 1 Bitcoin Gold. If, by chance, you had your Bitcoins stored in one of the supporting Bitcoin Gold exchanges, you may not have to do anything because youll have been automatically credited the relevant BTG amount by the exchange. Heres a list of supporting exchanges: The purpose of this guide is to give youa basicstep-by-step guide on how to claim your Bitcoin Gold. However, before we start, Id like to providean important warning: If at any step along the way youre not sure what to do, please stop whatever it is youre doing and seek advice.

A Few Ways To Claim Bitcoin Gold

A Few Ways To Claim Bitcoin Gold

Lately, people have been talking an awful lot about bitcoin forks and how to claim them. One particular fork that took place on October 24 called, bitcoin gold (BTG), has been a hot topic recently. As the networks wallet and exchange support grows larger, people are trying to figure out ways to split their bitcoin (BTC), so they can obtain BTG to dump on exchanges, or hold for a while. Right now there are a few methods available for individuals to split their forked tokens. Also read: After Mugabe, Zimbabwe Pushes Bitcoin to $17,875 Bitcoin Gold is a fork of bitcoin that took place on October 24. There are significant differences between the two cryptocurrencies. The BTG network has changed the consensus algorithm to a method called Equihash which allows GPUs to mine the token. Further, there are other contrasting features; like the currencys address format which means BTC and BTGs cannot be mixed up or accidentally sent to the wrong type of address. Additionally, the project is controversial as the development team has mined a large quantity of BTGs prior to allowing the public access to the network. However, many people still want access to their BTG so they can either sell them or store them for a later day. Anyone who owns bitcoin prior to October 24 gets a 1:1 distribution of BTG. Using Coinomis Wallet and a Private Seed One method people have been using to access their BTG tokens is by using, Coinomi , a mobile wallet that can be found in the Google Play store. Basically, a user can send bitcoins from their old wallet to a freshly created bitcoin wallet of their choice, and import the old wallets seed/key into Coinomi. Following these steps, all a person has to do is toggle BTG within the Coinomi client and claim the tokens that were derived from the old wallets Continue reading >>

I haven't been following the fork for some days so I can't confirm. Actually, it's not even possible to add Bitcoin Gold to Coinomi yet. This is what I found in the article comments: "The BitcoinGold wallet will only get enabled inside your Coinomi after the snapshot, so you cant see or add it just yet" For now, I don't know which wallet you could use to claim your coins. Edit: Looks like you are right and the fork already happened. I believe that all you can do is wait until someone release a working wallet so you can import your private keys and redeem the BTG coins. I think much better to wait more days to announce from coinomi or news that can we say a signal that we can claim our free bitcoin gold .. Just addi Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Gold Electrum Support

Bitcoin Gold Electrum Support

Quote from: TheKubizz on October 09, 2017, 03:55:25 PM Hey guys! Will Electrum wallet support Bitcoin GOLD? If so how it works? If not, where should I locate my funds to receive Bitcoin GOLD and keep them safe? Thanks for any help. Electrum probably won't publicly support bitcoin gold but since with electrum you control your own private keys there shouldn't be a problem with claiming your bitcoin gold when you are able to do so at official launch. Just like bitcoin cash, you are able to export the private keys elsewhere to split your coins. Electrum is one of the best and trustworthy wallets out there. Above mentioned wallet is not "official electrum wallet". Personaly I'm very sceptical about it as to me it looks like the author is just trying to take advatage of well known "electrum wallet" to lure people (what other reason could be to name it like that ??) EDIT: @CryptoVinny - it's your first and only post .. Im pretty sure you are the author ... nice try, but next time try to find better way to make money then from scamming others. Likely a scam indeed. Bitcoingold.org does not show any electrum variant as wallet and the site linked above links to at first glance shady pages that ask you to "import" your private keys/seeds. For some reason they require you to have a current bitcoin (BTC) balance, which is bullshit. You just needed to have a BTC balance for block 491406 in order to have BTG now. Above mentioned wallet is not "official electrum wallet".

Electrongold Is Effectively Stealing Bitcoin Gold Users Private Keys

Electrongold Is Effectively Stealing Bitcoin Gold Users Private Keys

Ever since Bitcoin Gold launched, there have been a fair few issues. Most users still cant claim their funds properly unless they use a TREZOR or Coinomi wallet. While the currency is trading on some exchanges, it is still a niche market. ElectronGold is a website people really need to be careful of when it comes to claiming Bitcoin Gold. It seems the software used is designed to steal private keys. The nefarious activity in cryptocurrency continues unabated. A lot of Bitcoin holders attempt to claim their Bitcoin Gold. This process has been far more complicated than it really should be. The launch of BTG has been anything but stellar, and things are only getting more complex. A limited number of wallets support BTG right now. Of those wallets, not every piece of software can be trusted either. ElectronGold, for example, is a wallet people need to avoid before they lose their money. More Problems for Bitcoin Gold Enthusiasts Although the developers claim it is a fork of Electrum, there is a lot more going on. Everything looks normal at first, but the source code of this project hints at a malicious activity. One user points out how this wallet mainly steals private keys rather than help users. Not the smartest business model, that much is evident. It is unclear how many users were affected by this theft already. It goes to show things will remain very difficult for the Bitcoin Gold supporters as well. The Electrum team has nothing to do with this project, mind you. Someone took their code on GitHub and modified it. Once that was done, it was given the name of ElectronGold to appeal to Bitcoin Gold users. In the source code is a dropped VBA6 app responsible for exporting private keys. A very disturbing development that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. Thi Continue reading >>
