I was searching for supported wallets and I found btgolds.org.  It looks well put together and I found a mention of it being the official wallet, however I can't find any mention of it here or really almost anywhere.  Is this legit?  The about page has no company information. It doesn't accept HTTPS which is a major red flag. Twitter feed talks about a hack they survived. I want to try this out with an Electrum wallet with a low balance that is not longer funded. Go?  No go?

Update:  I entered a disposable email and went to their "secure site" which is the same site, no encryption.  I put in the same seed it gave me as a wallet seed and the error message includes "Something goin wrong try after 10 minets or other Seed / Private Key" (sic) I also just noticed that there's no login button, no way of coming back to your wallet.  No confirmation email.  No doubt now it's a scam.

As far as I know till now there is no trusted wallet recommended by officials. And Blockchain hasn't go live yet. Be very careful to not get scammed

I tried to make an account and it's just way too suspicious to be legit.  Seems like a slick and devious scam and no doubt once they have access to enough wallets they will transfer it all out (BTC and BTG).  Domain tools (http://whois.domaintools.com/btgolds.org) show that it was registered 3 days ago (10-24) with only 1 year registration.  The languages are English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean with no European languages so that would indicate that this is based in Asia.

Also, a site that was created after the fork is telling you to move your BTC to a wallet to claim your gold.  no.....  No doubt they will clean up with this.  If they had used SSL and added a login link I would have left this at a question mark instead of changing it to an exclamation point.

This wallet looks so shady, i would never put my funds in a wallet like that, and honestly, their interface looks horrible, i dont know how the f*ck they are running an online wallet.
It is too good to be a real one, because there have not been any blockchain created by the bitcoin gold community yet, so there is no way to have a wallet for bitcoin gold instead of exchange addresses.
Try to hold your coins on your exchanges instead of trying to move them to there.

Don't be using a wallet that is made from someone other than the official teams wallet because they can be used to take your private keys.
