So, I am quite confused and scared to do anything at the moment. When I open my ledger (which I have updated the firmware for) it has 4 different blockchains.

One "bitcoin" chain, i have my normal balance.

Then there is "Bitcoin cash chain", "Bitcoin UASF", and "Bitcoin Segwit2x". UASF & Segwit2x have zero balances.

I created a new wallet with new private keys on a second ledger, it is ready for me to send my coins to. My question is:

Do I send my coins from "Bitcoin chain" to my second wallet under "Bitcoin Segwit2x"? or UASF? After doing this, are my bitcoins effectively split onto the correct chain?

Also, Aren't UASF & Segwit the same thing? Why is there 2 for those, it freaks me out.

Lastly, after I remove my coins from my original wallet, I can then import my private key into BCC to get those coins correct?

Thank you for your time. I just need some clarification because I don't want to lose my coins.

ALso, last question: If I do nothing at all and wait a week, never transacting on either chain, will I still be able to claim my coins from both sides?

The ledger peeps wrote up all you need to know here:

At the moment, Bitcoin, UASF and SegWit2x are all on the same chain... they will only be split later (if at all) according to the rules of UASF and SegWit2x. If in doubt, just pick Bitcoin chain for now. So, send from "Old" wallet Bitcoin Chain to "New" wallet Bitcoin Chain. Then use the "old" wallet to do whatever you want with BCC.

If you do nothing... then your BTC and BCC will just sit on the private keys that they're on now. The only risk is that BCC might dump to zero and become worthless Tongue
