So I have a keep key wallet which does not support btc gold. I recently bought a ledger nano s which does support it.

How do I safely and successfully access my btc gold once I send my btc over to the Nano s? Is it as simple as sending it from keep key wallet to nano s? And then the coin that was on there before the fork would appear in the btc gold holding or do I have to do something special to have gold  appear once I send it over?

Anyone that's ever done this before from one wallet that didn't support gold to another wallet that did plz comment only if you have experience w this problem thnx

Sending bitcoins to a new wallet is recommended to avoid exposing private keys with BTC to a third-party software. BTG will remain in the old wallet - transferring BTC does not transfer BTG. I have no experience with Keep Key wallets, but I suppose they are able to export private keys. In general the procedure is the following:

1. Send BTC to a new wallet
2. Export private keys from the old wallet (now they have BTG and maybe other forks)
3. Import these private keys to a wallet supporting BTG (it may be the same Ledger Nano S device you sent BTC to, if it can import private keys)

If the software supporting BTG in Ledger Nano S can be completely trusted, you can probably skip step 1 and import private keys with both BTC and BTG.

I do not have a hardware wallet, but I claimed BTG in a similar way - by sending BTC to another wallet, exporting private keys and then importing them to a wallet supporting BTG (in my case it was Coinomi).

I dredged this thread up from page 4, and I awarded one merit to the above poster for making a helpful post.

I think it is sad that nobody else commented.

Thank you. Yes, I agree - it is sad to see technical threads getting much less attention than those endless "Bitcoin is falling/rising", "Should I buy or sell?", etc.

Thank you for your response however I am confused on how to execute steps 2 and 3. I can easily send my btc ov to new wallet. How do I go about exporting the private keys from the old wallet? Then once I hae exported the private keys how do I import the private keys to my new wallet without deleting or erasing somehow the BTC I just transferred ov?
