So since the bitcoin gold is finally on the coinmarketcap, I understand (after reading few news articles) bitcoin gold (BTG) was indeed officially forked. I was very confused with fork being cancelled and now coin cap listed on coin marketplace.

Since it is officially coming up on the exchanges. Can someone provide information on how to claim BTG? There seem to be a lot less information compared to BCH fork. Is the official date of fork Oct 23rd? I since have moved portion of BTC holding from offline wallet to coinbase. So hoping I still get original value that I had in my wallet at the time of fork.

Hope for more information, anything is appreciated.


Side question...starting with same momentum as BCH, do you think BTG will follow its predecessor's rollercoaster ride?

We would need to know what wallet you are using for Bitcoin in order to assist

There are a few guides here but most of them rely on Coinomi or Bitcoin Core.  I didn't want to download the entire Bitcoin blockchain and the other guides required Coinomi.  I'm an iOS user so I felt like I was out of luck.  However, I luckily found this great post that helped me recover my BTG; it uses Coinomi but there's a free Android desktop app you can download.  Took about 10-minutes start to finish.

 Okay.  You can't import using the passphrase as they aren't compatible so...
Move your Bitcoin to new Bitcoin address within the same Electrum wallet and wait for them to confirm.
Load the Coinomi wallet on your android phone and select bitcoin gold.
Go back to your Electrum wallet and right click on the addresses that previously contained Bitcoin and show the private key.   Click on the QR code so it displays.
Using the phone and the Coinomi wallet,  select sweep and scan the QR code.   The BTG should appear in your Coinomi wallet.   While your doing that,  you might as well claim any Bitcore to which you are entitled using the same method after adding Bitcore to your Coinomi  wallet.

 Hope that helps

You guys play with fire. Super risky to do that on a mobile device. Lose it and all is gone. I'd not touch Coinomi with a ten foot pole.
