Hi there. So i wanted to give it a try and used a small wallet to check if electron cash is safe to use. Well it is not. I imported a wallet using all the precautions needed to save my bitcoins, and imported a small amount of bcc into the wallet. A couple of minutes later the bcc were sent away like magic. Farewell...

So be carefull!!!

your experience well noted , i think it is a bad start for cloned project bitcoin-cash (BCC) where almost in one month we can see a total fail of it very soon  . so forget about getting hyped program might not be as in ETC success . Thanks

looks like you send a btc transaction before the split and then almost 8 hours later when it split the transaction wasn't on that chain?

same thing happened to me, it showed my btc transaction. just change the server to one that is bch. (click network, bottom right, deselect 'select server automatically' then go to server tab and right click on server (with correct height 478562 as of now, i used casharia) and click 'use as server.' then the btc transaction is gone.

Electron Cash has a "peer list poisoning" bug, see https://twitter.com/ElectrumWallet/status/892433256385261568
This is probably what you are experiencing.
To fix that, disable auto-connect, and select a server that you trust to be a BCC server.

Thanks for the warning, this is a reason I will just wait a bit until there are more tried and tested methods.

Thanks for the info. I kinda expect something like this after BCC release after all, it is a new wallet and of course it is full of bugs so I guess it is better to use BCC days or weeks after today. It would be nice to sell now though, we might see it below 200$ in a week after all, many people wants to sell it fast so badly, it is not even valued by many people at all. They just want to get BCC to get free money.

For me I chose casharia as server, but it says "Not Connected" for several minutes now, what's wrong ?

Yes. Definitely a good strategy, although we might loss some value of BCH because everyone is dumping it hard but its better safe than never.

Thanks for the warning and its good that you used small amounts just for the hell of checking if it really works as intended. Maybe this early, it has a bug or something that's why it is not working by designed.

I'm trying to consider this eletron cash to get some BCC but thanks for your warning mate. You surely made it to warn all of us just in time.

so how many people have had a successful bcash transaction using electron cash so far?

I have seen only one so far.
Got my BCH now. Electroncash default server is a BTC (bitcoin) not a BCH (Bitcoin cash) server. Click on the network icon and de-select the "select server automatically" box and select a server on the BCH blockchain ( right click>Use as server) and my BCH have appeared!

I'm quite skeptical before to use electron as theymos stated here already https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2059111.0 that we have to be careful about those full btc hosted wallets for bcc.

Hi,

it is working did some tests 3 confirmations so far. See above for public address, donations welcome. Smiley

Only Problem Electron Cash can connect to Bitcoin nodes but this is an easy fix. Also only use private key where Bitcoins have been transfered away!
