1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Tranfsfer old btc address to cold storage (btc & bch) on: January 18, 2018, 02:25:35 PM
Hi I have question regarding transfer my bitcoin fund to new cold wallet. This is address legacy address from 2014 that never been touched since.  For security reson  I want to send all my funds to  cold storage with open possibility claim all forks  later.   

This is my plan what I and please correct me if you see something wrong with my process of thinking. I do not want screw up something because that might be very costly. 

1. Generate cold storage address downloaded from to offline computer.  Can I still use this site ? As far as I know same legacy address (beginning with 1)  still can be used on both sides ( BTC and BCH).
I want to keep things simple use preferably use same address for BTC and BCH. Is there any disadvantage beside slightly less  fee by using segwit address on BTC side Huh  I somehow trust to generate truly random passwords because that site been around for  long time.

2. Download and install electrum wallet (this Is wallet I am most familiar with) from

3. Import private key to electrum wallet ( I don't see need to generate new adress and swipe pk to that since I will be transferring my fund to cold storage address generated in step 1

4 Transfer BTC to new cold storage address ( What site I can use to properly estimate fee ?)
Is that true that I can use really small fee because I transfer between my 2 accounts and in worst case scenario ( insufficient fee) transfer will be canceled and funds returned to  source adrress ?

5. Download electron cash from import PK I transfer fund to key generated in pkt 1 Some people claim that is much safer to first transfer BTC and after that BCH.

6. I believe after transfer I can still claim  all posible  btc and bch forks ( bitcoin gold etc.) in future ?

Hi, I suspect that my private key can be compromised and I wanna move my coins to a different address. My address was created in 2014 and never been touched since. I want to generate a new private key for cold storage. My coins weren't split to BTC and BCH and I want to keep that way. My question is if I generate new PK in and move my coins to that address will they remain unsplit  Huh How I can check if my address contains unsplit  BTC and BCH or just BTC Huh
