bump to this waiting for the wallet
A big yes for coinomi wallet, and you can try to read more in this link https://coinsutra.com/bitcoin-gold/
I just think another BIG not for bittrex exchange site to distribute the bitcoin gold into the bitcoin holders. You can try to get a lot of information regarding the wallet or exchange site that already supported the bitcoin gold fork.
Jaxx and coinomi seem to be a correct place for you.

I will just wait for a wallet to be release to safely claim bitcoin gold instead of rushing because you are afraid that the price will go down once the dump happens. We should learn from the mistakes of bitcoin cash, a lot of people lost thousand or even millions of dollars claiming bitcoin cash and getting wallets claiming they will help you extract it while sending them your private keys. You can go back and you will find a lot of thread about it. Sad to hear their story. So them be greedy and have patience. Electrum wallet does not support bitcoin gold as far as I'm concern. So don't fall for someone saying they can redeem bitcoin gold with Electrum, and please don't share your private keys with anyone. If you wan't to take risk then deposit your bitcoin to Yobit.

Few hours ago Richie of Bittrex announced on his Twitter account that they are done with the snap shot of the current Bitcoin holders and the amount heing held. So I guess its safe to say that they will support Bitcoin Gold but the question is when are they going to distribute Bitcoin Gold and when are they going to allow it to be traded to Bitcoin.

I got my bcash like this:

1) Moved my bitcoins to another address. (newly generated)
2) Installed a VM and downloaded electron cash.
3) Imported my old priv keys into electron cash.
4) Dumped my bcash Wink

I am pretty sure this would work exactly the same with bgold but if my memory serves right the only thing bothers me is that bgold has no replay protection. And I don't know how can that harm me.

Since I always move bitcoins at the step 1, bgold lacking of RP confuses me and prevents me from taking action.

I need solid information from an experienced forum user.

I'll be waiting, but likely not taking any part in it at all. With the Cash split, btc.com launched a tool to extract your cash from other platforms that didn't support it. I imagine that something similar will appear again, providing it doesn't just completely bomb.

It's important to keep in mind that Bitcoin Gold forked off the original chain without replay protection! I would suggest waiting a few days (or even weeks) until the dust is settled so you don't risk your (true) Bitcoins when making any kind of transaction.

Gotta wait for the Wallet to come put, even then who in the hell trusts a wallet with your private keys? Plus, BTG is only worth $120 now lol. Not sure its even worth grabbing.

I think the safest way to claim bitcoin gold is simply to use wallets that are supporting the release of bitcoin gold. There are no more other additional tasks. You just have to simply park your Bitcoin and then wait for the wallet to give you Bitcoin Gold for free in the amount equal to the bitcoin you are storing such wallets. That was already done several hours ago, when Bitcoin Gold was officially introduced.

I am not sure that blockchain.info is accepting the segwit2x and gives the reward for bitcoin gold.
I have some bitcoin in the coinbase wallet and I got the notification from the coinbase support team states that bitcoin gold reward will given for the bitcoin we saved in our wallet that amount of bitcoin we saved there.

I did the exact same thing as you with BCash, sending the BCash from the ElectronWallet to Kraken and then exchanging it for BTC there.

Critical for safety is step 1 as then all your BTC is moved to new addresses which only exist on the original chain - nothing that happens on the new chain can then affect those funds. This assumes no replay has occurred.

If replay DID occur on the new chain, step 1 would be paralleled on the new chain.

NEVER do a transaction on the new chain from addresses which have BTC balances on the original chain as a replay would move these latter funds also. Always check the balances of these addresses on the original chain are zero, so no replay is possible to that chain.

With BGold if you do step 1, check it has not been replayed to the new chain. Then once a wallet supporting BGold has been found, do Step 3 with that wallet. If replay happened, then in Step 3 you would see balances of zero. If the original balances are there however, in BTG, then no replay has happened.

You can then go ahead and send these BTG funds to an exchange for conversion to BTC. No replay to original chain of this can happen - because on the original chain these address balances are zero, because you shifted the funds to new addresses in Step 1.

As well as a wallet supporting BGold we need a blockchain explorer for BGold so we can check the BTG balances of addresses. We can compare this to the balances of these same addresses on Bitcoin Blockchain.info Explorer at each stage to ensure we know exactly what's happening, and to check if replay has occurred.

If you are being attacked by replays then you need to investigate how you can counteract them, eg see below for one suggestion :-
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAhgvzNEhCM

Note when you are sending funds to your own addresses, the replay attack does not cause any loss of funds since it is only being sent to yourself. If sending to a trusted honourable party then again they would likely just return you the additional funds mistakenly sent to them, so there would be no loss. Replay attack can only cause loss of funds if the receiver is NOT a trusted honourable party, and might NOT return the funds you mistakenly sent. Replay attack only sends funds to the SAME RECEIVING ADDRESS(ES) as you specified in your original transaction.

Worth grabbing, sure, imagine if you decide to despise every coin´s beginning. most of them don´t start so high. most of them are worth cents and still, people rush for the airdrop. maybe isn´t much but a few dollar here and there add up. I am still waiting for the setup of the wallet, but with all these people trying to dump and causing the huge plunge, I better keep mine for better days.

The securest way to gain Bitcoin Gold should be to move first Bitcoin out of the wallet. Your history will be enough, so it doesn't matter now, when wallet is empty., you although get BTG, when you had Bitcoin on it during fork.
