hi bob thanks for confirming this.  But what is meant by private keys?


so basically at the time of the fork, my bch was in electron cash right?  While other ppl might have it in their nano ledger s, coinbase or binance etc? 
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: BCH just too off like a rocket on: November 14, 2018, 05:26:57 AM
I still did not claim my bch from electron cash as i did not download the program.  I was in the electrum forum and ppl said it does not matter if i claim it or not.  Can others confirm this is true?  Thus in the future, i can always claim my bch and this bitcoin fork with my 12 word electrum phrase?


The thing is i know this fork is as long as you have bch... but what if you never claimed it from electron cash.  Well its there even if u dont claim it.  So that mean my bch is in electron cash is that correct?  Thus i do not need to do anything now?  Because i dont want to not be able to claim anything from the fork because i did not claim my bch from electron cash.

HCP, so just to confirm, even if i dont do the process of downloading electron cash to claim the bch... yes i know claiming isn't the term to use but you know what i mean, i still will get the forked coins later on in the future right?  So its the 12 word electrum phrase that is what is needed?  Thus that is the phrase that is needed for bch claim in electron cash and the bitcoin fork soon?
4  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Bitcoin Cash Fork? on: November 09, 2018, 12:55:44 AM
So i like to know... does this mean if i do nothing now, does it mean in the future when i download electron cash, i could then of course claim my bch... but also claimed that forked coin that is upcoming?  
Short Answer: Yes


Long Answer:

Essentially, all a fork does is copy/paste the blockchain at a set point in time and then build from that point with it's own rules/network... thus, if PublicKeyA contained 1 <coin> at <forkTime> on <CoinChain>, then PublicKeyA would then have 1 <forkCoin> on <forkChain> after the fork occurred (assuming a 1:1 fork... adjust as necessary if the fork is like BCD which was 1:10)

Why this is relevant to you, is that whether or not you have created a forkcoin wallet is (usually) entirely irrelevant... As, ALL the coins are listed on the associated blockchain... not held in wallets.

So if <forkChain> is then forked... and that 1 <forkCoin> on PublicKeyA was not been moved... then at <2ndForkTime>, you will find that <2ndForkChain> now has 1 <2ndForkCoin> listed as belonging to PublicKeyA.

As long as you still have PrivateKeyA (the key that PublicKeyA is derived from) then you will be able to access all the PublicKeyA's... on all the various blockchains.






Hey hcp thanks for that information.  If that is the case, i won't download electroncash yet to get the bch that is there.  So basically my bch is in electron cash right?  Thus me doing nothing is the same as someone downloading electron cash and doing the process to get the bch and them leaving it in electron cash?


When you say the private key, you mean the electrum 12 word phrase right?  Just want to make sure of this.

The thing is you say if you own any bch coins, you will get access to both forks.  So does me not downloading electron cash and doing the whole process... means it does not matter since the bch is already in electron cash?  It just i didnt went through the process?  When i say claim the bch, i mean going through process of downloading electron cash and getting the bch.  I still have not done this b/c i dont have a 2nd computer at the moment.  Well i do... but its a chromebook so i would have to install linux or something.
6  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Bitcoin Cash Fork? on: November 08, 2018, 05:44:46 AM
Okay if i don't claim the bch before the bch fork, would i still have access to the forked coin? 

There is no option to claim or not to claim. If you own any BCH coins on Nov 15th, you will get access to both forks, Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Cash SV. This is assuming you keep these on your Ledger or ElectronCash wallet.

You will NOT get any BCH forked coins by holding BTC however. Only way you would get those is if you held some BTC before Aug 1st 2017 which would get split basically 3 ways.


I held bitcoin in my electrum wallet when the bitcoin cash fork happened last year in august 2017 and whatever date was the bitcoin gold fork.


I thought about downloading electron cash to get the bitcoin cash but did not do this because I only had one computer at the time.  But i then had access to a 2nd computer and still did not claim it.  At the moment, i do not have access to bch or bitcoin gold because i did not go through the process of downloading electron cash etc.


So based on this information, do i own any bch coins or not?  Because if i did the electron cash download to get the bch, i would either move the coins to the ledger nano s or move it to exchange like binance.  That way, i would get the forked coin for sure.  The thing im concerned about is if i don't do it soon, then does that mean i don't get any of the new forked coin soon?

using iphone.  anyone have same issue?
9  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Bitcoin Cash Fork? on: November 05, 2018, 06:15:12 AM
Okay.  I understand the private keys as it pertain to when you have btc and ppl go and claim bch and bitcoin gold.


So the bitcoin cash and gold that i never claimed yet... well its still there.  Thus i can claim it now or whenever.  But when bitcoin cash fork happens, does that mean i already have the private key for that?  The thing is if i claimed my bitcoin cash from electron cash and then send it to my nano ledger s or send it to coinbase/binance, i know i will get the fork coins.  But because i never claimed the bitcoin cash, then where would the fork coin for bitcoin cash be then?  Thus does that mean in the future, when i go and claim my bitcoin cash from electron cash... then i go and claim the forked coin from bitcoin cash right afterwards?  I guess i shouldn't use the word claim but own it.  But where would i claim the forked coin from bitcoin cash then from the fork?  Because is there a chance i do not get anything from bitcoin cash fork if i didn't claim my bitcoin cash from electron cash?  My wording might seem a bit confusing here.

I like to add something else.


Does anyone know if i could claim bitcoin cash on a chromebook?  I have a computer that i do everything on... my main computer.  I also have a chromebook as well but thats for doing things like visiting websites that maybe sketchy, streaming websites... and watching porn.  So whether or not i have virus there, i don't have a clue.  But i know i could powerwash it... its a term thats like complete wipe of the computer.


The reason i ask this is because most ppl say don't download electron cash on the same device as your electrum.  I have very little btc in my electrum.  I sent those to my nano ledger s already.  So could i download linux on a chromebook... i read you could do this.  Then once i do this, then i download electron cash on it and claim my bitcoin cash... send the bitcoin cash to my nano ledger s... and that way everything is good?  Because i do not have access to a 2nd windows computer at the moment.  I only have 1 computer and i know many ppl say don't download electron cash on same computer as electrum.  But what if my electrum has very little to no btc?  As long as you download correct electron cash, there is no harm to your computer right?  Because this computer, i do have wallets stored on it and also... i use a program like lastpass and keepass for passwords so i wouldn't want to get hacked because obviously my email and passwords are in those programs.  Anyone have advice on this?  Had i knew there was going to be a fork like this, i would have claimed the bch in another windows computer a while back.  Now i dont have access to a 2nd computer.

So what would the forked coin be?


Also, what if you never claimed your bch from your wallet such as electrum?  Do you still get the fork coins or not?
I'm not sure though but it's better that you'll claim your bitcoin cash already using electron cash.

But before doing that, you should send your bitcoin elsewhere because putting your seed with electron cash is quite risk, you may not who's watching at the back end of that wallet.



My issue is i don't have a 2nd computer to claim the electron cash though.  Would it be fine using the same computer as electrum though?


The thing was i had no idea there was ever going to be a fork like this.
12  Bitcoin / Electrum / Bitcoin Cash Fork? on: November 05, 2018, 04:42:53 AM
I heard this is going to be soon and i read that if you have bitcoin cash in coinbase or binance, you will get credit for it.  Now is there anyone here that still have not claimed their bitcoin cash from electrum?  I still have not.  Does anyone know if that means when the bitcoin cash fork comes... does that mean i do not get anything from the fork because i never claimed the bitcoin cash in the first place?


Thus those of you that claimed your bitcoin cash and held it and either keep it in a hardware wallet or an exchange, you should get something from the fork.  But what about those that never claimed bitcoin cash?  Would we still get it somehow or not?  Does that mean we have to claim our bitcoin cash soon then if we want to get something from the fork?
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Blockfolio Updated Itself? on: November 05, 2018, 04:38:20 AM
To anyone that use this program on their iphone, did anyone notice it updated itself?  It looks horrible.  But not only that, i notice that it doesn't seem to update correctly for each coin?  Example say you add coins like btc, litecoin and lisk and a whole bunch of other coins even if you don't own them.  Previously whenever you opened blockfolio, it would update the numbers for ever coin.  Now it seems like you have to click on each coin to see its current price?  That is ridiculous.


Anyone here have this issue and know how to fix this issue?  Any way to use the old blockfolio?

are you using old waves wallet or the new one?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Your Opinion on Graft (GRFT) on: October 19, 2018, 07:52:43 PM
What is the purpose of this coin?  Isn't this a pump and dump coin?  If so, isn't it good for trading?
18  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: The advantage of day trader on: October 19, 2018, 12:01:11 AM
Do you guys use blockfolio or programs that alert you when day trading?  What programs do ppl use this for this?  Example you want to know when a coin hits say 2 dollars when its 1.50.  I know blockfolio on phone you can set alert but what about the computer?
19  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: how much usd need for trade ?? on: October 19, 2018, 12:00:07 AM
whats a good amount to start with if you want to test it out where the amount is not too tiny.  Like 100 or 500 or 1000?
20  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Good day for arbitraging on: October 18, 2018, 11:59:35 PM
Wasn't this like last time when btc prices were pretty big between coinbase and exchanges like binance and bittrex?  Thus it all has to do with tether usd value?
