I found $50 worth of bitcoin on a paper wallet made with Armory 2-3 years ago. Should I move them to a "new" wallet on Electrum? Will they lose their value?

Thanks

What do you mean with "lose their value"?

If you have X bitcoins in the address which private key is printed on the paper, you can sweep those coins to a new wallet. You will not lose anything other than the fees for the transaction.

If you are talking about the   equivalent amount of Bitcoin worth $50 from two years ago. It should be worth a lot more today. You will receive the Bitcoins you had from those years, and not the amount worth $50 today.

Something like this should work:

1. Get your private key from the paper wallet, import it on Electrum[1], create a new wallet and send your coins to the new wallet you just created;

2. Download Electron Cash[1] and import your first wallet (the one on the paper wallet that you just sent the coins to your new wallet);

3. You will probably see your BCC balance. Now you have BTC on your new wallet and BCC on your Electron Cash wallet.
