I have some bitcoin at coinbase who do not support the new bitcoin cash. ive just got back from some time away and I would like to move the btc I have with coinbase to my trezor so i get the "free coins" that come with the fork.

I dont know all the details and drop by from time to time, I guess my question has 2 parts:

1) is it safe/possible to send btc at the moment
2) If I send now to a trezor from a place that does not support bitcoin cash now will I likely get the bitcoin cash with the fork or am i too late?

Thanks



edit
I sent a small amount as a test and it looks to have started the process as usual with the transaction waiting for confirmation, however, I sent 0.05 and its showing as me sending 0.05 and 0.0171 to 2 different addresses, I would guess the 0.0171 is the btc cash?

Very interesting



Okay ignore me - I started this thread because I was curious but everything worked regarding the transfer and I suspect I will get the cash too given what I found above

I believe that you won't get your BCC anymore.

Coinbase posted an announcement last week saying that they wouldn't support the Bitcoin Cash chain and that you should withdraw your coins out of their wallets if you wanted to get them after the fork. Now that the fork already happened, if you take your coins to an external wallet, you will only receive Bitcoins on the legacy chain. Could you confirm that?

The 0.0171 BTC on the transaction is probably only Coinbase sending the change[1] of the transaction to their same wallet. That's not how the fork works. You would receive the same amount of 0.05 that can be spent on both chains.

First, bitcoins held by Coinbase do not entitle you to any BCC. Second, any bitcoins received now (from anywhere) will not entitle you to any BCC. Third, the 0.0171 BTC in the transaction is called "change". It is not yours.
