Bitcoin Gold Fork Coming: How To Double Your Bitcoins

Bitcoin Gold Fork - How to double Bitcoin

It has been only 9 weeks since the Bitcoin Cash hard fork, and we are again discussing another Bitcoin hard fork.

For those of you who don’t know about the previous Bitcoin hard forks and its challenges, read my earlier guides here:

And for those of you who aren’t aware of the upcoming Bitcoin hard fork, pay attention.

In this article, I intend to cover everything you need to know about the upcoming Bitcoin hard fork and how to prepare and benefit from it by doubling you coin holdings.

Wowowow… double!! 

Some of you may think this is a good thing as your value will also double!

Note: Doubling of coins does not mean doubling of value, because after a hard fork, the value of both versions of coins are determined based on user sentiments and demand/supply in the market.

So keeping that point in mind, let’s get started…

New: Where To Sell Bitcoin Gold (BTG) [Full list of BTG exchanges]

New Bitcoin Fork – Bitcoin Gold (BTG)

Bitcoin Gold is a new, would be cryptocurrency denoted, as of now, as BTG or “bgold”. It will be a fork of the original Bitcoin that Satoshi Nakamoto invented in 2008.

The Bitcoin Gold community defines BTG in the following fashion:

Bitcoin Gold is a community-activated hard fork of Bitcoin to make mining decentralized again.

At present, there is very little information available about the technical know-how of this fork because their website is under development.

Who Is Doing This Fork And When Is It Happening?

The Bitcoin Gold project is being driven by some developers, miners, and their head Jack Liao, the CEO of the  Hong Kong-based mining equipment manufacturing company, LightningAsic.

Bitcoin Gold’s lead developer is someone anonymous by the name of h4x3rotab and he/she claims that:

Bitcoin Gold is also a real blockchain to pilot Bitcoin upgrades.

As per their official website, the exact time is not yet known for this fork.

But the official date for the fork is mentioned as 2017-10-25 (25th October 2017) but better to follow the block height which is block 491407.

Why Is It Happening?

This is a community-driven hard fork without any consensus voting. It is primarily being driven by a few who believe that the original Bitcoin mining system has become centralized and is monopolized by a handful of mining companies.

They believe this because of ASIC miners which provide a very strong entry barrier for an average user or miner like you and me.

And now, these hard fork supporters want to change that and make the process more decentralized.

As per their Twitter:

BitcoinGold

How Do BTG Supporters Want To Change This Centralization Problem?

BTG (i.e. Bitcoin Gold) advocates have decided to solve this problem by forking Bitcoin on 25th October by changing its original protocol.

Specifically, to combat the mining centralization problem, the BTG developers are implementing a different mining algorithm altogether that will be resistant to ASIC chips called Equihash.

This will make ASIC miners irrelevant for mining Bitcoin Gold because, with the implementation of Equihash, Bitcoin Gold will be mineable simply by using cheap GPUs.

  • Note: Currently, Bitcoin uses the SHA-256 mining algorithm (read about SHA-256).

What’s Their Other Agenda?

Their other agenda is to save Bitcoin in case something happens to it in the future, as they claim will.

Also, I think they want to compete with other GPU minable cryptocurrencies like Zcash, Ethereum, and Monero.

And with Ethereum moving to POS consensus, this is a kind of masterstroke for this Bitcoin-branded coin (BTG) because then those Ethereum mining people will have to switch to either BTG or Zcash or another GPU minable currency in the future.

But they know that they are not competing with Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash as stated by their lead developer in a conversation with Bitcoin.com.

Features of Bitcoin Gold (BTG)

Bitcoin Gold doesn’t bring many features with it, but…

  • BTG will be based on Equihash so it will be GPU minable.
  • BTG will have inbuilt replay protection because it is a direct fork of BTC.
  • BTG will have a variable difficulty that will change per block. (Good thing for GPU miners.)
  • And looks like BTG will have a pool of pre-mined coins for 16,000 blocks.

Apart from these, there will be no changes like block size adjustment.

And BTG will be following the suit of the original BTC core developers for the future betterment of their coin because they believe that’s the secure way.

My Opinion

I have mixed feelings toward this because of several reasons…

It’s a good idea to have a GPU-minable algorithm. This will surely prevent centralization and currently, there is no GPU-minable Bitcoin hard fork. So it’s good in that sense.

On the other hand, their development and way forward look depressing. There is literally no information whatsoever on their GitHub or official website. Moreover, on GitHub, none of their developers are publically available.

Also, haywire information sources on the Bitcointalk forum raise massive red flags about their future and their intentions. I was really surprised to learn that they might have an ICO for these pre-mined blocks, but again, there is little clarity about it on their official website.

But… let’s say that around 25th October they have beaten all odds, clarified the much-needed information about their project, and we have a fork… then what to do in that case?

Then the only thing to do is enjoy and claim your free airdropped Bitcoin Gold coins!

Confession: I am going sell some part of BTG immediately (if a fork happens) and will HODL the rest of it.

How To Get Free BTG

After the BTG fork, you need not do much, but you need to be updated and agile about this subject.

If you want access to your BTG coins, you need to take care of two things:

  • You should have your private keys.
  • You should avoid being replay attacked.

And here’s the important part: Both of your coins (BTC and BTG) will have the same private keys.

Moreover, due to this fork/split, another problem called Replay Attacks can happen.

Though, they say that they have replay protection in place, but we are not sure how effective it is as it has not been tested live.

So to avoid replay attacks and access your free BTG coins, we suggest you take care of the following things:

  1. Avoid transactions for some days until the dust settles to avoid replay attacks.
  2. Keep your Bitcoin private keys with you, not in a third party exchange like Coinbase.
  3. Use hardware wallets like the Ledger Nano S and Trezor. Last time, during the Bitcoin Cash fork, these two hardware wallets were the first to support the forked coin.
  4. If you don’t have a hardware wallet, use software wallets like Mycelium, Jaxx, Coinomi, and Exodus to control your private keys.
  5. You can also use a paper wallet or brain wallet.
  6. If you hold your keys in a paper wallet or software wallet, wait for instructions on how to access your BTG coins.

Order Ledger Nano S | Order Trezor from the official site

Future Of BTG

BTG Blockchain Launch Date: November 12, 2017 – 7:00 PM (19:00 UTC)

The future of BTG isn’t clear yet. But if the fork happens, BTG will likely have some market value and will definitely steal away some hash power from GPU miners.

On the other hand, we really need exchanges and wallets to support this Bitcoin Gold fork; otherwise, it will have a hard time finding any value.

And as the fork time approaches, I will keep updating this article will more information on Bitcoin Gold and which wallets/exchanges are actually supporting it.

Last but not least, don’t fall prey to fake websites/wallets demanding your private keys to let you access your BTG.

So until that time, stay tuned to CoinSutra to keep up with the Bitcoin revolution!

Note: Theoretically Bitcoin Gold Fork is already done around October 24, 6 am UTC at block height 491407. So if you are transferring your BTC now, here and there then you might not get BTG because it’s over now. Regarding claiming your BTG through wallets we will publish further instructions shortly. Happy Forking 🙂

Update 1: Bitcoin Gold’s Website is Live. Read their FAQ section for more details here.

Update 2: Bitcoin Gold’s Roadmap announced here.

Update 3: Read BTG Dev’s Official Statement here.

BTG Dev’s Official statement’s Gist:

The Bitcoin Gold dev team is not holding any information back. We are committed to full transparency.
We do answer all of the questions that are being asked via Twitter, Facebook, Slack, and email, and we
provide all the needed information for the general public.
We don’t hide that we are working hard to provide this solution – to make cryptocurrency that has the
Bitcoin structure and that cannot be mined using ASIC machines. Our project is almost ready, but there
is still a lot of work to be done and we will give all the support if there are people who want to help us.
We don’t make suggestions to buy or not buy any kind of cryptocurrency, especially not Bitcoin Gold
(BTG), as all cryptocurrency markets are still highly volatile and easily manipulated. But the one thing
that you must know is that on October 25, as planned, we will take a snapshot of the Bitcoin blockchain
and everyone will receive 1 BTG free for every 1 BTC in their wallet. So please be sure to keep your
Bitcoin private keys secure in your own possession, as we don’t want any Bitcoin holders to miss out.

  1. N

    Nice Article for Newbies like me. I have one question, Suppose I store my BTC in Trezor, will I automatically get BTG or should I move my BTCs to an exchange? I read Trezor is Segwit2X compatible but what about BTG? Your inputs will be highly appreciated. Thank you

    1. @ Nash Glad to know that it helped you.

      Their position is unclear. Here is the statement of Trezor’s CTO on Reddit– “We are still evaluating this. Evaluation depends whether they will implement replay protection and the address change.” Which I think is a fair answer. But if they support BTG then there is no problem at all.

      But even let suppose they don’t support BTG, you will be able to claim BTG via other wallets as long as you have the seed key of your Trezor wallet. So no worries at all.

      Let the dust settle and Fork happen.

      1. J

        Thank you for your article. I have trezor, and I have a legacy bitcoin account, and a standard bitcoin account on it. I heard a rumor that in order to take advantage of the bitcoin gold fork and claim my bitcoin gold, I’ll need to keep all my bitcoin in the legacy account. Is this true, or can I simply leave everything in the standard account?

          1. P

            I had bitcoins in my trezor wallet on october 23 and still there, but I do not see any bitcoin gold in my wallet, what to do, please suggest

  2. A

    I have my btc in Electrum wallet which is operated by my private key(paper wallet) will i get the same amount of BTG the.Reply ASAP

    1. @ Amarpreet

      Yes, you will as long as you have the private keys with you in any wallet.

      But if Electrum didn’t support it then you need to claim your BTG via some other wallet with the same BTC keys.

  3. M

    I have my Bitcoins on my Ledger Blue when the Bitcoin Cash fork happened I was able to split them (with a step by step guide on YouTube) Being in the U.S I had to then send them to Bittrex where I traded them for regular Bitcoin
    . So far there’s nothing on the ledger wallet website or anything but they did create an app for bitcoin cash that made it a lot smoother back then. Is there any word from them if they will do the same for a bitcoin gold hardfork? Lastly, is the most reasonable safe thing to do (as I did with Bitcoin cash fork) is sell/trade half of my Bitcoin Gold Coins and keep the rest in my Hardware wallet? just in case it somehow becomes the prevailing coin some day?

    1. @Mike

      Nothing officially so far from Ledger yet.

      But ledger allows you to control your seed keys so if Ledger didn’t support BTG then your can claim BTG via another BTG supported wallet. Which wallet that is still not clear.

      Another thing there are some red flags about BTG so let the fork happens and dust settle.

      Never put your seed/private keys here and there for getting BTG in a hurry because if it turned out scam you will lose your BTC too.

      And regarding the strategy of selling BTG, you can keep some and sell some because a GPU minable version of BTC will surely have some decent value if it got hash power.

      Hope this helps:)

  4. Can I get a Bitcoingold if I put my Bitcoin into bitfinex.com before 25/10 ? And Can I convert my Bitcoin to other currencies in 26/10 Without losing Bitcoin gold opportunity ?

    1. @Mounir

      Looks like relying on the matter of BTG on Bitfinex won’t be appropriate because there is no statement by them on BTG.

      However, they will support Segwit2x fork as they have said in their official post and CoinSutra has also mentioned about the same in this post-Will We Really Lose Bitcoin In The SegWit2x Fork?.

      And on 26/10 if you have the private keys of BTC then you can access your BTG with it. But Bitfinex doesn’t give keys so remember that.

  5. l

    hi, does anyone know of Wallet services that will make the split for you automatically (like BTC.com did for Bitcoin Cash). I’d much prefer that to having to be entangled in complicated procedures involving showing your private keys online…

    1. @lemmi

      It will be just in time.

      But until now no one is doing it. Probably Trezor might do it first this time because they said they will support if BTG chain is stable. Read Trezor’s CTO comment on Reddit.

      If some secure wallet officially supports it then we will surely update it here accordingly.

  6. L

    Hi, i have ALL my BTC on a Ledger Nano S in a Segwit (not Legacy) wallet…Will i still be able to access my BTG after the Fork ? I am ‘presuming’ so….I just need to access my private keys and ‘guide/BTG wallet recovery tool’ will be available ? Or do i need to put them ALL back into Legacy ?? Thanks

    1. @LeeJ

      Good question.

      Yeah, you are correct. You just need to do this only for accessing BTG.

      And no pulling back to Legacy is required.

      1. L

        So Im assuming you don’t need to move to a segwit address if you currently have a legacy address & you will still be able to claim bitcoin gold?

      1. C

        Help! Frantically trying to get btc to a place where I can get the btg after the fork. Transferred everything to Exodus, who now says they DON’T support it. Looked at Coinomi, per your recommendation, but can’t put on my Mac. Any other suggestions?

        Thanks!

        1. @christine
          No clarity as of now on mac wallets. Will update as soon as we get.
          Coinomi has an android app so if you want it through coinomi then import your Exodus wallet into Coinomi.

          1. C

            Huh? I am on a mac….how do I import if I can’t download coinomi to my computer? If it’s an android app, it’s not going to work on my computer…

          2. That’s why I specifically mentioned android app. I understand you have a MAC.
            You can try using an emulator or wait for full node Bitcoin Gold Client.

  7. Srinivas Kulkarni

    Thanks for the update… Trying to move away from exchanges and non private key wallets as of now.. Any idea if Coinomi or Jaxx or Exodus might give BTG on split… Ideally I’m should just hold on to few of my alts to get a good price later on, or buy in the dips currently so it would be beneficial later on… What do you think? If I don’t get BTG, at least can buy Altcoins at a good rate… What’s the best wallet /exchange according to you for Altcoins?

    1. @Srinivas
      No official confirmation from Coinomi or Jaxx or Exodus yet.

      A hybrid strategy to HODL some and BUY/SELL some part works well.

      Wallet for Altcoins- Ledger Nano S, Trezor, Coinomi, Jaxx or Exodus.

      Exchange for Altcoins- Bittrex, Poloniex, Binance

  8. r

    hi.. i have an App. called COIN.PH with this app i can convert my PHP to BTC directly.. but then I DONT HAVE PRIVATE KEYS . i have my btc address but idont know if that is considered a private key.. im actually a begginer about. now my question is. can i get BTG by sending my BTC to a wallet that supports BTG?

    1. @ron
      Don’t mind but FIRST THING FIRST.

      If you are newbie consider reading this for your own sake:
      What is Bitcoin? A Beginner’s Guide.
      Best Bitcoin Wallets
      Bitcoin Private Keys: Everything You Need To Know

      Secondly, there is no Wallet as of now that has confirmed officially support for BTG.

      Lastly, keep your BTC is a wallet like Ledger Nano S, Exodus, Coinomi or Jaxx where you control your private keys so that if a fork happens you should be able to claim your BTG.

      1. S

        JAXX has not even been able to produce BCH(bitcoin cash) as of today 10-16-17 so i would not store your BTC in that wallet unless you want to wait for a long time

      2. C

        Thanks for adding those links. I am pretty new to this and appreciate all the help I can get. I have only a small amount of bitcoin on 2 exchanges, Bittrex and Gdax. I have tried contacting them both regarding bitcoin gold and got no response. Gdax (I’m sure you know) only supports btc, eth and ltc. Should I move what I have to the Bittrex site to be able to get the bitcoin gold? Other people have told me that Bittrex will support the gold, but Bittrex has not responded. PLEASE tell me the best way to go about this. Thank you!

        1. @Christine,
          Don’t believe anyone unless Bittrex officially supports BTG.
          Until that time keep your BTC in a wallet where you control either private keys or seed words.
          You can use a mobile wallet or a hardware wallet.
          Android: MyCelium, Coinomi
          iOS: Jaxx
          Hardware: Ledger Nano S and Trezor

    Hi, Do you have information if bittrex supports the fork? as happend with BCC.

    Which wallet/exchange do you recommend to wait fot the fork? and get BTG of course.

    Greetings

    1. @Julio

      No statement from Bittrex on BTG. And No wallet officially claims to support BTG yet.

      Better control your private keys yourself.

    1. @Kuzey
      By Blockchain, I am assuming you are talking about Blockchain.info wallet.

      So if you have seed keys of your Blockchain wallet then you will be able to claim your BTG directly from Blockchain.info wallet (in case they support it officially)

      Otherwise using the same seed claim your BTG via some other BTG supported wallet that will be known after the fork only.

    Thank you for making this article! It somehow seems to start making sense. ASIC mineable vs GPU mineable. which one would last and which is one is more valuable? I guess no one can tell what the future will bring. Keep those article coming! 🙂

    1. B

      If Bitcoin wants to take over the world they need some strong players I believe. It looks like the ‘early adopters’ libertarians want to use the GPU.. Also, normal Bitcoin is much more known with everyone in the rest of the world. Some countries are already relying on it.. What do you think?

      1. @BTCB

        We all know Bitcoin is now far from perfect but not to forget its world’s first crypto.
        I agree on some libertarians want to use GPU which will make it more decentralized I think only in theory because GPU manufacturing companies are also a few which can make it centralized again if they want.

        But surely this a step towards lower entry barrier to mining and decentralization. And of course, it will not be Bitcoin, after all, it will be an altcoin i.e. BTG.

        1. B

          “And of course, it will not be Bitcoin, after all, it will be an altcoin i.e. BTG.”
          How do you mean? That the ‘normal’ Bitcoin will not survive in the long run?
          Greetings

  11. i

    Hypothetical question here, hope you can advise. Let’s say I am holding BTC in a hardware wallet on 10/25 when the first BTG block is established and want to sell my BTC(Bitcoin Core) immediately after(same day), say due to a market crash. Am I at risk of losing or not recieving my BTG if I sell immediately?

  12. Hey Sudhir, why do you not have Bitcoin Core on your list? Also, the problem with Hardware wallets is that they may delay in their implementation of supporting the coin. I would prefer to have the control myself, hence why I’m thinking of using Bitcoin Core private keys.

    1. @George U
      Glad you asked this question.
      Bitcoin Core somewhat tedious to use it. I understand that it works well for a techie guy like you. So I think not everyone will be comfortable using core because initial synchronization will take time and download a lot of data.

      Moreover, I agree with you that hardware wallets will take some time for implementation of BTG but as you have the seed keys of hardware wallet then you need not wait for their implementation.

  13. S

    Hi, Thank you for your nice article, I have two questions to ask:
    1.I have my BTCs in my Ledger nano S, in its Legacy wallet. my question is that is it necessary to move them to segwit wallet in order to receive BTG?
    2.As all of us know, the fork will happen on 25 Oct and we need to keep BTCs in a wallet that we own the private key. Another confusion I have is that after this date we can move our bitcoins to any exchange for trading and expect to receive the BTG on 1 Nov, or we have to keep our BTCs in our wallet until 1 Nov? Also do you know the exact time?
    Thanks

    1. @Sh.Hey Thanks and glad to know that it helped you.
      1. No, I don’t think so that there is any such special requirement. Even BTG dev haven’t put any such conditions so you can use any account segwit or legacy.
      2. If fork, as planned, is done one 25th October you can move your BTC to exchanges but if the fork is postponed and you moved your BTC then you won’t get BTG even if you have the keys or seed. No exact time has known yet. I will update this piece of the article as soon as I hear officially from BTG dev team. Also, read the official statement of BTG dev that I have attached at the end of this article.

      Hope this helps:)

    1. @Hi wealth,

      Wallet support for BTG is not yet decided nor announced by them. So best is HOLD your keys or seed words and wait till the fork.

      1. J

        Thanks you for so much useful info. I am holding my BTC in the blockchain wallet app on my iPhone and my 12 seed words on paper. Is this correct to get BTG once dust settles. Is there any reason to change wallets at this point

    1. @Mahmoud
      Copay provides you seed key when you make a wallet for the first time.
      If you have that you can claim BTG from that seed key later via any other BTH supported wallet.

  14. Exodus says it won’t support BTG fork, but they will focus on November hardfork segwit2x… I’m thinking I’ll keep my BTC in Exodus till anyone announces support… Or should I move to Jaxx now so that I don’t do transactions to avoid replay attack then… (though BTG is claiming they have replay protection). And if so, then I can get BTG as well as B2X if Jaxx supports BTG and exodus support the Segwit2x. Good strategy?

    1. @Srinivas

      I have been using Exodus now since its launch. It provides you seed keys as well specific private keys for your wallet.
      So in case even if they don’t support either of the forks then also you can claim BTG via a BTG supported wallet. So no worries.

      Moreover, I don’t think Jaxx has officially announced support for BTG if so please provide a link to me.

      1. Srinivas Kulkarni

        Yeah, I have seed and private keys both. Haven’t claimed the last fork cause I wasn’t trading back then. Would you have a link to know how to claim BTG with the specific private key? Do I use those private keys to claim BTG from a supported wallet? Yeah, Jaxx hasn’t officially announced support, I just saw a few comments on top and assumed. Watched this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsdFR64AIiE where he said (of course not claiming, but guessing by how Bitcoin cash fork was handled and that Bittrex will support the fork and transfer BTG to our account… I guess only time will tell. Till then I’ll just HODL in my Exodus account.

        But still, afterwards, the 18th Nov fork will also help me claim more coins right?

        1. CoinSutra will put a procedure to claim both forks as and when the official wallets supporting both the forks are declared.

  15. Srinivas Kulkarni

    So was going through the slack channel for Exodus and saw this conversation there. But don’t think he’s a team member of Exodus…

    OP: I am looking to prepare for Bitcoin Gold fork on the 25th. Does Exodus support receiving 1:1 if it is distributed?
    Kev Chan: Hey J T, yes if you hold your BTC in Exodus, you will also get Bitcoin Gold after the fork. However, you will need to import your private key into a BTG wallet to claim them. Here’s a link with more info: http://support.exodus.io/article/150-bitcoin-gold-btg

    So I’ll just wait and watch, as long as my BTC is in a wallet that supports private keys.

    Srinivas

  16. SO if you don’t have quite 1 full coin do you still get it? They said 1 BTC you get 1 BTG. If not I need to buy .1 BTC. lol

    1. @Shanevas
      Yes, you will get free coin equivalent to amount of Bitcoins you hold. Even if it’s 0.01 BTC, you will get an equivalent amount of BTG.

  17. A

    Sorry I am still not clear. I have btc stored on a ledger nano wallet. What do I need to do in order to also get bitcoin gold coins?

    1. @Aimling
      Either you need to wait until Ledger Nano supports Bitcoin Gold coins or else if you don’t want to wait then you can simply use your Ledger’s seed keys to access BTG via a supported wallet.

    RAJESH RAMACHANDRAN

    I have BTC in coinbase wallet. Is it really required to transfer to any other wallet for getting BTG? I’m a new bee in crypotocurrency. I buy from CEX.IO then transfer to Coinbase wallet, for that there was some small charges. But if I wanted to transfer from Coinbase to a paper wallet or some other wallet will there will be any more charges? Kindly help me.

    1. @Rajesh
      Every Bitcoin transfer (Transaction) incur a certain cost. Since you usually transfer between your own two wallets, its better to set the low fees option. You should transfer the coin to your own mobile wallet such as MyCelium, Coinomi or Jaxx before the fork. This way, you will have complete control over your wallet and you can claim forked coins in time.

  19. K

    What’s your thoughts on these forks/splits of bitcoin happening every time? Don’t you think it will hinder the accessibility and trust of new and general Bitcoin user

    1. @Kratik
      My thoughts are:-
      1) These forks will make BTC more strong.
      2) It will make crypto users more proficient in understanding the whole ecosystem.
      3) Definitely, some users will lose trust and not get involved.

  20. L

    Impressive and amazing info.
    I hold some bits in Zebpay. I am holding on to them to get free BItcoin Gold after the fork. Do I need to do something extra to get my bitcoin gold or just hold the bits in zebpay.
    Also, once the fork happens, should I refrain from doing any transaction from my wallet to stay safe from replay attacks? Please let me know.

    1. @Luv,

      Zebpay won’t allow you to claim BTG. If you want BTG to keep it in a wallet that gives you the control of your private keys.

    1. @Christine

      No official statement on this from BTG dev but they have few exchanges in their ecosystem see here.

      So best is to keep an eye here on CoinSutra as we will be shouting out the exchanges as soon as we get to know. And you can also keep an eye on the exchanges that BTG has listed down under their ecosystem.

    1. @LeeJ
      That;s a very smart question. You are thinking right as its advisable to setup a new wallet once you used your private key on a 3rd party site/wallet for these forked coins. It will hardly take 30-60 minutes but it’s definitely worth the hassle.

  21. A

    Hi,

    Thank you for the brilliant article! Meanwhile, would you be so kind to answer a couple of questions that are really burning to me:

    I have bitcoins on my blockchain.info wallet, and I have a 12-word seed phrase as well. Will the seed phrase be enough to get free coins? Do I need to extract my private key to be able to get Bitcoin Gold and SegWit2X? If I extract my private not before but after the fork, will I get free BTG and SegWit2X?

    1. @Alexandr
      Seed work should be enough. However, if it doesn’t work you can use your private key. Yes, you can extract it after the fork and use it to claim your coins. We will post a tutorial for the same.
