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 anywhere. 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 thought about trying this out with an Electrum wallet with a low balance that is not longer funded.

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.  I have no doubt it's a scam. They will take your BTC and probably your BTG as well. Don't enter your wallet keys/seed into any online site.  Only use wallets with proven histories.
