hello

I had some BTC funds on my electrum wallet during the time of the BCC/BCH fork,
after the fork i transfered that funds to an exchange, now how can i claim my BCC/BCH that is in my electrum wallet, linked to the private key of the recieving electrum adress?

I tried with electron to import the private key of the electrum adress used to store my BTC during the fork but the balance stands at 0.
Didn't the BCC equivalent of my total BTC in the electrum wallet automaticly split during the fork?

Make sure your ElectronCash is pointing to the right blockchain... when you goto the network settings... what is the current block count? If it is higher than 480,000 then your ElectronCash is most likely connected to BTC servers...

Also, did your Electrum address start with a "1" or a "3"?

Also, did your Electrum address start with a "1" or a "3"?

I Changed the netwerk just to be sure manually to a bitcoin cash server aswell as the port.
block height is 479186

My electrum adress where i initially deposited my btc before the fork started with a 3, why?

1- get electrum cash https://github.com/fyookball/electrum
2- on your electron click Wallet => Private Keys => Export => Save file
3- on Electrum Cash wallet => Private Keys => Import => Select file

1; got it and made a wallet
2; in electrum i can only export private keys to JSON or CSV format, did both
3; in electron (= electrum Cash) tried importing the files both are not readable, i must enter all the private keys myself

What i have done is this:

1. Made a wallet in electron
2. Exported the private key of the BTC recieve adress in my electrum wallet that holded the BTC before the fork.
3. Seeing the option import private key(wallet - private keys - import) was not availlable, In my electron wallet i did "new/restore" under file menu and entered the private key of step 2, creating a new wallet with the private key where my BCC funds should normally be in.
4. double checked the server was linked to the bitcoin cash network

Still dont have my BCC..

That's a MultiSig address... you can't just export the key for that address... as there are multiple private keys required for this address... You need to restore your wallet from seed in Electron Cash to be able to use this wallet... is it a 2FA wallet? because that will also cause problems... as TrustedCoin don't support BCH...

1- get electrum cash [ur l=https://github[dot]com/electroncash/windows-linux] <--- (Possible) SCAM URL
1; got it and made a wallet
I hope you didn't click his link... it is likely that this is A SCAM!!!! he hid it behind the fyookball github url and has been spamming this URL all over the Electrum threads!! Undecided The repo was only made like 24 hours ago... it can't possibly be the official github!

If you clicked his link... and downloaded from that website... you should consider ALL your keys and coins as compromised!! you need to act FAST!

Thanks for the update, i followed the video and i have my BCC/BCH in my electron wallet now Smiley
I did click the link but i defenitly did not download anything from there as i dont trust these things, if i needed to redownload electron cash i would have gone straight to the source and not use some link a guy send Wink.

Been looking also on how I'll claim my BCH. Thanks for this. But with the #1 I'll follow HCP's tip as it is a scam.
