1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Tranfsfer old btc address to cold storage (btc & bch) on: January 22, 2018, 11:41:24 AM
First a want to thank you for a comprehensive and fast response. Regarding point 6 I am afraid I still don't get it and want to clarify it.

Let's assume that I already transfer my BTC and BCH to new addresses. With my BTC address, I still should have unsplit bitcoin gold/diamond and all other forks that happened after BTC/BCH (regardless if I use legacy or segwit address to store my BTC) and I can split them in a future is that correct ??

2  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  bitaddress.org 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  bitaddress.org 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 https://electrum.org/#download

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  https://www.electroncash.org/ 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 ?

Thank you guys for such a fast and comprehensive response. This community is great.

So this I think I should do please correct me if I'm wrong

Regarding BTC
1. Since I have my old keys in old Multibit Classic Wallet download legacy  Multibit Classic Wallet export PK to Electrum as shown
on this video https://youtu.be/LaijbTcxsv8
2. Generate cold storage PK for BTC in legacy format using bitaddress.org (of course offline) or in new segwit format using
Segwitaddress.org (is this site legit and reliable PK generator Huh?)
3. Transfer BTC from old address to new cold storage address in Electrum

Regarding BCH

4 .Same as point 1
5 . Generate cold storage PK for BTC in legacy format using bitaddress.org (of course offline)
6. Transfer BTC from old address to new cold storage address in Electron Cash

Thank You guys in advance for reply

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 https://www.bitaddress.org 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
