I am very confused...let me explain what I did.

I went here https://www.bitcoincash.org/, and clicked wallets and downloaded Bitcoin Unlimited Wallet.

After opening it up, I noticed that they are giving my Balance in "BTC". I thought this was supposed to be a BCC wallet???

Why do they label my balance with BTC?

Also, how do I find out what my BCC address is? and How do I find out my private keys from using this client?

I have downloaded their BCC wallet but am still in the process of downloading the 150GB block chain, it's so slow on their network, got ~20GB left after 1.5 weeks. I am using Bitcoin Cash Unlimited version 1.1.1.0, which is their second version.
My answers are in red below.


I am very confused...let me explain what I did.

I went here https://www.bitcoincash.org/, and clicked wallets and downloaded Bitcoin Unlimited Wallet. - When you go there for a BCC wallet, make sure you click on the "Bitcoin Cash Release" drop down section, did you do that? In the first version which I assume you have because of the date of this post, you can check if you've got the BCC wallet instead of the BTC wallet by clicking the help tab then about then it will refer to BCC in the first line there. Also make sure you check the sha256 and the signature for extra security before you download.

After opening it up, I noticed that they are giving my Balance in "BTC". I thought this was supposed to be a BCC wallet??? - I can't be sure because I haven't yet downloaded the whole block chain and haven't put funds into the wallet yet, but it does seem like in their BCC wallet they do refer to the BCC as BTC, presumably this is because this software is "experimental" and pretty new as they say. So they haven't got round to changing the name of the currency? I would just assume it's BCC. They probably just copied the code for the BTC software and changed a few small things to allow for BCC to be used in it without removing all the BTC references.

Why do they label my balance with BTC? - Answered above.

Also, how do I find out what my BCC address is? and How do I find out my private keys from using this client? - To get your address, click on the receive tab and fill out that form to generate a new address. To export your private keys you need to use the built in console as described here and to import use the console as described here. The commands in those links are probably the same but just in case they are different you can check by clicking on the help tab then command line options, then check the same commands are there, or just try them.

Hopefully they update this BCC wallet soon so it's easier to see what's going on rather assuming things like BCC = BTC, which I'm not entirely sure is the case anyway as I haven't downloaded the block chain from the so slow network and got around to using it. Hopefully they can speed that up too somehow. It is possible to check the code on github here because their code is open source.
