I do not believe that you will be getting BCC if you have BTC on a blockchain.info account with Bitcoin deposited within it at the time of the fork. You likely need to have it in a desktop wallet for you to have access to BCC and BTC, otherwise you will likely not be given any BCC, nor will you be able to access it if you do not have the private key.

As for why you would want to have BCC is beyond me but if you're trying to grab it and dump it then I respect the hustle.

At the moment Blockchain didn't announced if they will support the fork.

But even if they don't, you can export your private key from your Blockchain wallet and import them in a wallet with proper instructions on how to "cashout" your BCC. But remember that it would still be better if you move your bitcoins to an offline wallet like Electrum before the fork.

If your coins are saved in blockchain.info, I don't think you will be getting a bitcoin cash. Theymos suggested some wallets that is ok and may give you the some BCC based on the bitcoin you saved there. And also, saving BCC is your choice, for me I will be treating it as another altcoin.here is a link of the post of sir Theymos.

You will not be receiving any BCC on your blockchain wallet. Some said that they did not support the fork. It is better to keep them on a the suggest wallet from the post of Theymos like Electrum and Mycelium since I store them in my android phone.

There is no private key on blockchain.info wallets, so he can't export or import private keys that never exist.

I also wanted to know about this. Because in bittrex I saw that they will give bitcoin cash for every bitcoin you have. For example you have 1 btc you will get 1 bcc. That also applied in blockchain? Inform me pls.

No you won't get any BCC from blockchain.info as they didn't give any statement about it.

Until they say something, it means they don't support the hard fork (i.e, they won't add it to their wallet).
They might be waiting.

Just use myceilum. It's better.

There is no private key on blockchain.info wallets, so he can't export or import private keys that never exist.

It used to have the option to export private keys. Did they remove that feature ? That would be so weird and why ? (I mean since they used to have it as an option before)

I don't necessarily want it either, but I also have a crappy blockchain wallet (don't ask), and I'm interested
to see what's going to happen.  Blockchain was not on that list of good wallets Theymos listed, so I said screw
it, I'm buying Dash for the time being.  I'm OK with that.
Any BCC acquired will be sold or spent, though as of right now I won't be getting anything at all.  Sure is a weird
situation with this.

Blockchain certainly doesn't give you control over your private keys, unlike better wallets.  Think it's probably a good
time to switch to something better.

First of all you must not rely to blockchain.info in giving you this BCC if fork happens because the safest and most reliable wallet is the one who you holds the private key and this is the offline wallets, if you really value your Bitcoin protect it by yourself and don't just wait for something bad to happen.

OP, if you only have a small amount of Bitcoins in Blockchain.info, I suggest you make a Kraken account and send them there. Kraken has expressed that they will be accepting and listing Bitcoincash in their exchange and would give all their users the BCH that is due to them.

After the fork, your address will have both BTC and BCC/BCH/Bcash.

Blockchain.info will most likely only show you the BTC balance.

You will be able to access BCC by importing your private keys to a BCC supported wallet post fork.

You can sell the BCC on exchanges for $$$  Cool

With blockchain.info you hold your own private keys, therefore you can claim the airdrop on August 1st. I think that it is more appropriate to call bitcoin cash an altcoin rather than a fork.

However blockchain.info will probably only have support for one coin. It is likely that you have to download the actual bitcoin cash client or using another supporting wallet to claim your bitcoin cash tokens.

You don't need to exchange anything, there is a snapshot taken on the day of the fork. There is really no work to be done. It's just like the stellar and byteball airdrops, all you need to do is to import a private key with coins in it on the snapshot time.

Stellar and Byteball airdrops were different. They just neeed a signed message from your Bitcoin wallet. But BCC is going to be different. It requires the private key of your Bitcoin wallet to be imported in to a BCC-compatible wallet.

So here is the best way to claim BCC: Move your coins from your primary Blockchain.info wallet to another wallet a few days after August 1. Once this is done, import your private key from your primary wallet to any of the BCC-compatible wallets. In this way, you will get the BCC and there will be no risk for your Bitcoins if something turns out bad.

HI NETNOX

I have some Bitcoin in an offline Multibit Classic Wallet, After the fork if I import its private key into one of the compatible Bitcoin Cash Wallets will I receive Bitcoin Cash ?  Reason Why I am asking is if these BCCoins are going to be worth something I may as well avail of them or cash them in for bitcoin Huh

OMG you're holding coins on blockchain.info? And you're holding them over August 1st?! You must really not give a shit about privacy, knowing your own private keys, owning your own bitcoins or anything. What a stupid wreckless pointless thing to do. Do you also use Fiat bills as window coverings? You're just asking for people to steal your bitcoins and/or rip you off.

If you have the private key you will always be able to retrieve the bitcoin cash, at the end of the day the private keys for bitcoin and bitcoin cash are identical.

You can look at Blockchain.info CEO tweet: https://twitter.com/OneMorePeter/status/891406518561669122?p=v
This everything what they said about fork and you can interpret his words how do you want. It looks that you don't get Bitcoin Cash on blockchain.info automatically and you may need to make few additional steps to receive Bitcoin Cash. In your place, I would move my bitcoins out from Blockchain.nfo. You still have some time to do it.
