Hello guys,

I have a question about claiming BTG from breadwallet.
So i have read you can claim them by converting your 12 word seed into an adress and then claim the BTG.

Can i then send this BTG to bittrex for example and sell them?

My main question is; is it worth it? Is this risky in the way that i might loose my BTC?

Cheers guys!

It's not risky if you keep your seed safe (for example, operating with it only on an offline computer).

Which tool are you going to use?

I don't know what breadwallet is because i've never used that software, but im just going to tell you that to be 100% safe, to access forked coins (irrespective of if it has replay protection or not) you must first empty your wallet (move your BTC to other BTC addresses). Then, this now empty wallet, can be used on a BTG wallet to access your BTG. Note that in the case of BTG, you will have whatever balance you had at October 24th which is when the snapshot was took as far as I can remember.

Then you can send these coins to bittrex or wherever you want in safety, because the addresses no longer match in both chains.
