Hello all,

I have 1 bitcoin from a few years ago and I was wondering how to obtain the BCC without fucking up my bitcoin.
I just downloaded the electroncash wallet.

Do I just import my the private key of my 1BTC address to this wallet and im good to go?

Thanks you.

Hi,

If your private key starts with "5", "K" or "L" you can use electrum and sweep the key.

OK, I already have the BTC in an electrum wallet.

My question is, if I import the private key of the 1BTC addy to the "electroncash" BCC wallet is that all I need to do to move the BCC without fucking up my BTC?

Thanks for your reply.

You can probably do this, but it means you have to completely trust electroncash. A much safer approach is to move your Bitcoin to a new address, one that isn't related to your old wallet, before importing your private key in any untrusted software.

After this, you can import the private key to access your Bitcoin Cash. I don't trust Electron Cash on my normal computer though, so I used it in a VM (Virtual Machine) to be safe.

Next, you can do the same for Bitcoin Gold and Bitcore (I used Coinomi on Android to import those private keys).
