Why not play around with offline paper wallets? Use bitaddress.org a Open Source JavaScript Client-Side Bitcoin Wallet Generator and create Single Wallets; Paper Wallets; Bulk Wallets; Brain Wallets; Vanity Wallets; Split Wallets etc. etc. Just create these on a separate offline computer to be safe. < A air-gapped computer >

There are many handy "How to" guides on doing this, if you want to go that route with this. I think it is the safest option, if you are doing it correctly. ^smile^

You will find all you need at the top of the forum. Here's he quick link for you.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2012799.0

Here's the snippet of what wallet to used:

OK wallets

The following wallets give you some theoretical way of exporting your private keys, so they should be safe to hold BTC during Aug 1. Depending on what happens after Aug 1, you may have to export your private keys and use different software, though. (Do not go doing this willy-nilly in a panic, though -- wait for agreement and clear instructions from several sources. There will be no rush.)

The ones in bold are ones that I also tend to like for other reasons. The ones in italic seem to make it difficult to export your private keys, or I particularly dislike them for other reasons.

Mobile
Electrum
Mycelium
Copay
Bitcoin Wallet for Android
breadwallet
Simple Bitcoin Wallet
Bither
ArcBit

Desktop
Bitcoin Core
Electrum
Bitcoin Knots
mSIGNA
Armory
Bither
ArcBit
Copay

Hardware
Ledger
Trezor
Digital Bitbox
KeepKey

Web
Green Address*
Coin.Space

* Note for Green Address: You must either use a 2of3 account or have nLockTime transactions emailed to you in the settings. Otherwise you're trusting Green Address too much.

I personally used Electrum though. Lightweight fast and easy to used.

I use Electrum and I advice you to use it. You can import/export private keys.

personally i wouldn't bother with any wallet that requires them to mess around with their servers and create new apps. i'm not super confident they'll all pull it off.


create a paper wallet. send your bitcoins to them now.

after august 1st send your bitcoins back to your regular bitcoin wallet.

all you're left with then is bitcoin cash private keys. you can then choose a bitcoin cash wallet if there is one.


that erases any doubts about the security of your bitcoins or how well wallet providers handle the fork.
