Hello MiningBuddy!

No rush, but I am hoping (and praying) you or someone could help, guide or point to a solution. Easy stuff I am sure.

I have a little BTC in my Armory wallet.  All pre-fork.  So I know there will be BCH, Gold, Diamond.....

Issue:  I want to move my BTC, and any other forked assets OUT of Armory and onto an exchange or cold wallet(s).... say Binance (I do have an account)

I do have my keys and phrases.  (And they will stay safe and private) I can fire up Armory and I can see my BTC balance. All is good there and so far.

I know I cannot attempt to do this on any info I can find. I am not a coder or programmer.
I do not understand "sweeping key" and moving to another wallet / address on Armory.

I cannot find a youtube video explaining this either.

LOL...if someone could explain it like I was a 6 year old... that would be nice, but   Man I need help.

I do not want to lose my BTC and forked assets that I am eligible for from the forks.

Sorry to pick on you friend , but I was going thru the forums..
I would be happy to reward for time and call if needed.  

I know my BTC is safe... but I need to have better control of it now that there are simplistic options now.

Any response would be greatly appreciated.   I need 100% success. safe and secure . thanks

Well all comes to just export private keys, import them in wallet software/online one and sell/move them.
For BCH i think blockchain.info allows you to import private key with BCH coins. Im wondering if there are any worth anything reasonable forks, diamond/gold? didn't heard of them only BCH.

I would like to clarify for myself also, if author will import private key from BCH to blockchain.info. Blockchain info can steal his BTC right? (in theory) Because they share same private keys.

You won’t be able to move your forked coins with Armory, but you can take those private keys and import them into various fork wallets to move those coins. I would recommend moving your BTC from the address first.

I would recommend moving your BTC from the address first.
do as suggested to secure your bitcoin, preferably new address in a new wallet
using new address derived from the same seed would be ineffective
read this for some information LoyceV's Bitcoin Fork claiming guide (and service)

I've never tried it myself but these threads also have good information on claiming BCH and Armory
Claim Your Bitcoin Cash Balance and Exchange into Bitcoins (Electron cash wallet)
Using Armory on the BCH chain
warning: BCH has changed its address format, so these guides are a bit outdated

Thank you so much  guys.

I am going to digest this too be certain. I will check those links and info provided.

1)   just export private keys, import them in wallet  .   
 Meaning  move (send) my BTC from Armory Wallet to an outside wallet.  I can do that. I can always send a tiny amount of BTC ahead to make sure.   It would be same as me sending BTC from my Armory to another BTC wallet. 
That is called "sweeping keys"? 

2) take those private keys and import them into various fork wallets
I will use my private keys that are designated to my Armory wallet and put them into a suggested wallet / exchange and hope my Bitcoin cash will show up.  Example..  I now have an empty Bitcoin Cash Wallet set up. I will import (paste) my private keys to it.

And other than that there is not much to worry about?


That simple? 

I will check the links provided too. 

I will be back if stuck or success.  Stay tuned.
Thanks again

ok.
Please help or guide me....

I am still trying to move my BTC out of Armory.  (I am not a progammer or tech)

Stuck at 99%  1 second left.[/b]

Taking all advise , I wanted to do this right.
So I purchased an new HP PC.  Clean!

I downloaded latest Bitcoin Armory version .

I downloaded and ran Bitcoin Core.

All good.. BUT

I then run Bitcoin Armory.  My wallet is confirmed and it starts its process.

After 8 attempts and restarts and hairpulling, I get stuck at 99% / 1 second left.  And it stops.
It is in offline mode while building data.    Bitcoin Core IS working in background.

Rebuild all. Yes.  but always make it to 99%   1 second left.

Please!  Someone ..  I am getting worried and beyond frustrated.

I need to have it open so I can move out to a wallet I can manage.

This is a much better section to get answers to your questions: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=97.0

If I were you, I would get your private keys and try a lightweight client.

thanks.

I will repost there.

having such a hard time.
Can't see my P keys until I get into my wallet.  Alway stops at 99%.

everything else appears correct.  Can't seem to find anything related.  Other than restart, rebuild.

If it was 1990 I could call an expert and pay them for their time. Talk me thru it over the phone  LOL

Will keep trying for solution
thanks
