OMG i think i have done it!!

thanks mocacinno this worked:

If you don't want to do this, you should export the private key belonging to the change address of the last transaction that was confirmed...

I looked at the transaction, found the 'change address', dumped the private key for that and then went to electrum and did a sweep and its now showing as an unconfirmed transaction

the other address i swept earlier how now confirmed so hopefully this one will do the same

can i buy you a beer seeing as its friday night?



I'm glad it worked, a tip isn't really necessary. That being said: i'm certainly happy when i receive a small tip.
My tipping address is in my profile, it's the same address for bitcoin and bitcoin cash (since you found the private key for your bitcoin address, and you swept the unspent outputs, you can safely import the private key in the electrum wallet for bitcoin cash and spend those BCH to Wink... Well, wait untill the sweeping transaction is confirmed just to be sure.

cool, i will send a little bitcoin cash to the address in your profile then

is it safe to install the electrum cash wallet on the same machine? i have read you should empty your electrum wallet and do it on another machine. maybe thats over cautious?

Personally, i have many machines running, i chose to use a different machine for electron cash just to be sure, so i can't really comment on this (sorry)

The safe approach is not trusting it, and taking precautions. You're talking about large amounts of money, so being very careful doesn't hurt.
I don't trust Electron Cash on my system (note the correct spelling, many phishing sites try to give you compromised wallets!), so I use it in a VM just to be sure. It worked fine without problems though.
The real site: Electron Cash.

I am back again with another query

i am trying to claim my BCH from this old wallet but every time i try and sweep the private keys i have it says 'no input found'

i have tried using the 2 private keys i successfully swept for BTC in my new  electrum wallet but got the same result

are they not the correct keys? do i need to find some others?

thanks

If you successfully swept BTC from them, then the private-keys are valid (the same private-key is valid for BTC and BCH).

My guess is that there is no BCH in the wallet, so there is no inputs to spend. Did you make sure the address isn't empty by searching them in a BCH explorer[1]?

If the addresses aren't empty, import them in a Electron Cash wallet and see if there is any balance. Then, try to spend them normally.

in this transaction https://blockchain.info/tx/9732bc17cd2d3468a1af8e3c3f83a67e87e45b865f10dcc8e15904e1c80da955
you're sending to 1FsdYR2AMw... and 1PXpkd9fd... and I believe your address is 1PXpkd9fd...
try importing the key for 1PXpkd9fd... it should have balance in that address on BCH chain
