In this post, we will show you how to claim it. There are numerous ways to claim Bitcoin Cash from an Electrum wallet. In this tutorial, we will show you how to claim Bitcoin Cash using the Electron Cash software wallet.

Electrum Wallet Keys Could Be Snatched By Malicious Websites

Electrum Wallet Keys Could Be Snatched By Malicious Websites

Electrum Wallet Keys Could Be Snatched by Malicious Websites Developers of the Electrum bitcoin wallet have rushed out a security update today, to fix a vulnerability that would have allowed malicious websites to scan and discover GUI wallet users private keys. Only non-password protected wallets were exposed to risk of theft from the flaw, a less-serious version of which was first reported a few months ago. Also read: Reminder: You Dont Have to Buy a Whole Bitcoin! Join the Bitsonline Telegram channel to get the latest Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and tech news updates: Anyone running Electrum is advised to shut down the application immediately and update to version 3.0.4 , though Bitcointalk administrator Theymos advised against rushing to upgrade immediately, to make sure everything is settled. The issue also affected Electrum derivative software such as the Electron Cash wallet for Bitcoin Cash and a version for Litecoin . however developer Jonald Fyookball posted on Github shortly after the patch release that Electron Cash had been updated as well. New release: Electrum 3.0.4. Please upgrade, this is a security update. It fixes a vulnerability that was reported earlier today. See the release notes for details. Electrum (@ElectrumWallet) January 7, 2018 The projects Github page described the issue as a vulnerability caused by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) in the JSONRPC interface. Previous versions of Electrum are vulnerable to port scanning and deanonimization attacks from malicious websites. In other words, simply having a non-password-protected Electrum wallet running and browsing the web left users at risk of losing their private keys and thus their entire BTC balances. Even wallets with passwords remain at risk, with protection at that stage being only as g Continue reading >>

Electrum Wallet And Bitcoin Cash

Electrum Wallet And Bitcoin Cash

At the time of the Bitcoin Cash fork (Aug 1st, 2017, if I remember correctly) I had all my BTC stored in my Electrum wallet on my Windows laptop. In Oct 2017 I moved all my BTC from Electrum to another wallet on my laptop. Now I'm want to claim my Bitcoin Cash (BCH). So I exported all my private keys from my Electrum wallet. I'm mostly a newbie, so I'm thinking that one or more of those Electrum private keys correspond to the BTC I had in my Electrum wallet at the time of the fork. * How do I determine which of the Electrum private key(s) correspond to the BTC I had in my Electrum wallet at the time of the fork? * Or, am I on the wrong track and is there some other process for me to claim my BCH? Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here. 1. You could just install ElectronCash ( ).. then open your "old" Electrum wallet using Electron Cash... it should automatically find all your BCH. 2. You can just export ALL your BTC keys from your old wallet and import ALL of them into a BCH wallet (like ElectronCash)... It won't matter if you import "empty" ones... If you want to just check it out to see what you're going to get... or you really only want to import the ones with coins, you could export the "xpub" from your old Electrum wallet... and then create a new watching wallet in ElectronCash using the xpub... it should find all your addresses that have BCH... you can then find the private keys that match the addresses with BCH. Personally, I would say that there is no need for you to determine which key(s) had BTC and therefore have BCH on them... just import them all either by using the whole wallet file with ElectronCash, or importing all the exported keys into the BCH wallet o Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Cash: Huobi And Electrum Signal Their Position On New Fork

Bitcoin Cash: Huobi And Electrum Signal Their Position On New Fork

Bitcoin Cash: Huobi And Electrum Signal Their Position On New Fork Huobi and Electrum have signaled their position on Bitcoin Cash amid widespread mixed reactions. Huobi and Electrum are the latest cryptocurrency businesses to add their perspective on the increasingly popular Bitcoin Cash (BCC). Bitcoin Cash , a prospective fork of Bitcoin which is causing mixed reactions in the industry, could come into being from Aug. 1. Exchanges have signaled both support and distaste for the concept, which in turn appeared to be influencing Bitcoins price as investors react to renewed uncertainty about a fork. Just a week ago, Bitcoin surged after it seemed a fork would no longer be necessary and that SegWit activation was guaranteed. In a statement to users today, Huobi expressed full support for BCC. BCC is a digital asset generating from the Bitcoin ABC software. Bitcoin ABC is a full node implementation of the Bitcoin protocol. It has removed the controversial SegWit code, replacing it with a simple, sensible, adjustable blocksize cap, it explained. BCC will begin to be mined at 20:20, August 1, 2017(GMT+8). Wallet provider Electrum meanwhile was more reserved, highlighting technical difficulties in supporting BCCs less secure rules. It would be possible to support BCC in Electrum, by modifying the difficulty rules we use for block headers validation and the transaction creation rules. There are already forks of Electrum doing that, a post commented. However, the headers validation rules of BCC are strictly less secure than those of Bitcoin. Therefore, it would not be possible to use the same rules for both chains in Electrum, without significantly lowering the security of validation of legit Bitcoin transactions. Electrum also said it was unhappy with the use of its logo on B Continue reading >>

How To Claim Your Bitcoin Cash And Sell It For Bitcoin (trezor, Ledger, Electrum)

How To Claim Your Bitcoin Cash And Sell It For Bitcoin (trezor, Ledger, Electrum)

How to Claim Your Bitcoin Cash and Sell it for Bitcoin (TREZOR, Ledger, Electrum) Last updated on August 24th, 2017 at 01:25 am Warning: this guide reveals the exact method the author used to claim free Bitcoin CasH and exchange it for Bitcoin on the 2nd of August. While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure complete and accurate information, the author cant guarantee a successful outcome for those following this method. Waiting for better documented methods and more familiar exchanges to offer BCH deposits is the safer play in this situation. However, as more people figure out how to sell their coins, profitability may well decrease. Bitcoin Cash (aka Bcash, BCH or BCC) forked off from Bitcoin on the 1st of August and its launch has proven rather rocky. Three days later, only 2 exchanges are supporting Bcash deposits and its price has crashed on both. It still takes relatively a lot of time to get Bcash transactions into the blockchain and thats due to the high difficulty of mining.Bcash forked with the same mining difficulty as Bitcoin but only a small fraction (around 5%) of its hashrate. Bcashs first (or genesis block) took around 7 hours to be found. The difficulty adjustment process was meant to compensate for this, reducing difficulty to a level more appropriate for Bcashs low hashrate within a few blocks.However, miners from Genesis Block, an aptly named, high-tech hostel in Hong Kong, apparently began mining Bcash for fun and marketing purposes. The hostels additional, unexpected hashpower greatly delayed Bcashs difficulty adjustment process . As a result, Bcash blocks remain slow, although difficulty has since adjusted to about of Bitcoins. You can use this Bitcoin Cash block explorer to see the status of the current blocks (take a look at the botto Continue reading >>

Top 10 Best Bitcoin Cash Wallets (bch) To Store Bitcoin Cash Safely

Top 10 Best Bitcoin Cash Wallets (BCH) to Store Bitcoin Cash Safely Felix Kster December 13, 2017 13738 no comments Electron Cash (Desktop and Mobile Wallet) Rahakott a new secure multi-currency wallet (sponsored listing) Bitcoin Classic UAHF Client (Desktop Wallet) In this article, Im going to talk about the fork again. As a result, the free money is created from thin air!! Mind you, this was not the fork which you use to eat noodles. This was the fork/split of the worlds first and the biggest cryptocurrency Bitcoin ,and the freemoney created from thin air Bitcoin Cash (BCH). You have missed a lot of buzz and news about Bitcoin Cash if you are new to this Bitcoin Fork scenario. For those of you who have just joined now, in a nutshell, this is what happened: As of block 478559, the Bitcoin (BTC) network has hard forked intoBitcoin Cash (BCH) on August 1, 2017. This hard fork has created a new form of electronic cash for the Internet Bitcoin Cash (BCH). At the time of writing this article, BCH is worth $1610 per unit and is the third most valuable cryptocurrency according to CoinMarketCap . Abracadabra!! Bitcoin Cash was just created out of thin air and is now worth $1610! It used to hit $1970 back in November and threatened the actual bitcoin to overtake it! (No, it didnt BCash fans just wanted it so bad)! You will be really surprised to know that BCH was free for anybody who had any amount of BTCs and were also holding their private keys under their custody prior to the fork. In a post-fork period, in order to claim the free BCH, those Bitcoiners needed to use the same BTC private keys on a wallet that supports BCH. For example, a bitcoin investor that holds 10 BTC should have been credited with 10 BCH after the execution of the hard fork; in other words,your coin hol Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Cash Wallet Support Is Coming To Trezor And (unofficially) Electrum

Bitcoin Cash Wallet Support Is Coming To Trezor And (unofficially) Electrum

The Bitcoin Cash debacle continues to spawn plenty of discussion among community members. Even though some people doubt thehard fork will occur, certaincompanies and service providers are preparing for the worst. Butwhich wallets will support Bitcoin Cash? Thatlist still seems limited. The binaries for Bitcoin ABC seemingly provide wallet services, but some external support would be nice to have as well. Bitcoin Cash Wallets Are Difficult to Come By For most people, the only Bitcoin Cash wallet they will need is the address provided by one of the exchanges supporting this alternative version of Bitcoin. While there is some merit to that, relying on exchange wallets also means the user is never in full control of his or herfunds. For those people who want to actively support Bitcoin Cash and not be relianton an exchange to keep their funds secure, alternative wallet solutions are in high demand. The obvious solution would be usingthe updated Bitcoin ABC binaries, which were released a few hours ago. The updated client offers strong replay protection, which was one of the aspects in which some exchanges feltBitcoin Cash was lacking. Additionally, other changes wereintroduced including updated ABC logos. It seems most of the binaries werebased on the Bitcoin Unlimited client, which is not entirely surprising. We can only hope this software does not cause any issues andforce nodes offline. Additional wallet service providers for Bitcoin Cash are hard to find these days. However, the project has gained significantsupport from Trezor, as the hardware wallet manufacturer is looking to make itself compatible with BCC (or whatever the final name of this token turns out to be). Having a hardware wallet manufacturer on board is significant, sincehardware wallets are still the mos Continue reading >>

I have used bitcoin paper wallets since I started in cryptocurrencies (2013) but you're always thinking, at some point along this path, someone is going to know my private key. Due to the way paper wallets are created, you are likely to print a batch of wallets. You have to sweep the entire balance. Every time you expose the private key in a transaction, there is a decent chance you can be comprised. There are precautions and workarounds but for most people hardware wallets are easier and as secure if not more. Continue reading >>

Claiming Bitcoin Gold (btg) From Electrum Wallet: Impossible?

Claiming Bitcoin Gold (btg) From Electrum Wallet: Impossible?

Notes & Occasional Rants of a Cryptocoin Miner Newbie Claiming Bitcoin Gold (BTG) from Electrum Wallet: Impossible? Today I decided to claim my Bitcoin Gold and I failed not through a fault of my own but because of a design decision made by the Electrum development team many years ago. Here is what I found out, and why I decided to stop using Electrum Wallet. Update: I found a way to make this work, so if you want to know how to split your Bitcoin Gold coins from your Electrum wallet, read this post . However my opinion on Electrum stays the same, and if you want to hear my reasoning, keep reading. Anybody who has created a new wallet knows what a seed is: a sequence of 12/24 words from a dictionary that can be used to recover the private keys. A seed is particularly important for the so-called Hierarchically Deterministic wallets that use the master private key to derive an almost unlimited (~2 billion) number of child keys so that we can generate new addresses as required and avoid address reuse. Because of the deterministic nature of this process, we only need to keep a backup of the master private key; its children can be regenerated whenever necessary. This makes backups so much easier than having to keep a number of unrelated private keys, so naturally the community embraced the idea, a key generation procedure was summarily standardized under BIP39 and everybody started making their wallet software compatible with this specification. Today I learned that the Electrum developers have a different understanding of security and use a bespoke algorithm for seed word generation. The only thing they have in common with BIP39 is that they use the same dictionary. However when you try to input an Electrum wallet seed into a BIP39-compatible HD wallet, it will warn you ab Continue reading >>
