For me the best solution in the past was Electrum, I had no problems with the forks

and everything was pretty easy to handle.

How much you guys expect to gain on such a move? Would it be much more than investing in Alts at -50% discount?

I think that any wallet where you have the full control over your private keys is good choice and that is also the most important feature. Electrum could be one of the good choices. The other issue is that with this multiple forks that are happening not all wallets are supporting them or better to say the coins like recent Bitcoin Cash or Bitcoin gold so if that is important to you that is another thing you have to pay attention.

The best thing for you would be hardware wallet. It is safe from hacker attacks and it will be safe for the potentional fork. There are many hardware wallets to choose from. I would personally choose nano. If you are ready to spend some of your BTC buy hardware wallet. It will meet up with your expectations. I hope I helped a bit.

I think Coinbase would be nice for an online wallet to withhold your Bitcoins with this incoming Hard Fork because they said that when the Bitcoin network mines the block 494,784(that's the time for Segwit2x) they will give the exact amount of Bitcoin2x(new coin after Hard Fork) to the users who hold their Bitcoins at their platform. As of now I am using an Electrum wallet for my desktop computer and I am all good with it because I also hold my private keys that is eligible in getting the new coin and it doesn't need to download the whole blockchain in able to use it.

Hi There,

Trying to get my head around the coming fork or whatever might happen.

It is all a bit over my head. So i'll leave it to the experts.

Just wondering what is the best wallet to use to protect my investments.

I have both BTC and ETH so I am using Exodus at present as it is nice clean, and holds my coins in one place.

Should I be using a wallet that downloads the entire blockchain instead, to keep my BTC for the coming month or two?

I am sure some of you BTC geeks will know.

Advice appreciated, explanations would be awesome.

cheers,

Rhyso


it' easy.
just choose one who will give you the possibility to export private Keys.
You need this feature to import Keys in the new wallet who will be able to manage the new chain!

Yes. that's the smiple rule. After fork, you still need find the proper wallet to recover your keys to gain your coins.
what if a consolidate wallet which act quickly to support all fork coins?  Roll Eyes

I like coinomi (only on smarthone at this time), team is very reactive and new forked coins are implemented very quickly (bch, btg etc)
