How to Recover Bitcoin Cash from Wallet, Reinis Fischer

The further written applies to those btc.com wallet owners who moved their bitcoins to wallet prior to August 1 bitcoin fork. At least I did so.

Things you will need: BTC.com wallet and optional withdraw address at Kraken or any other exchange that support BCH (I ended up using hitbtc.com exchange for withdrawing BCH)

As coinbase announced that they are not looking to support Bitcoin Cash (BCH) I moved my coins out of it (in fact I had some coins on Poloniex.com, I moved them also, as there were no clear answer how Poloniex will handle this fork/split.

I waited until storm is over and in August 1st noon went to btc.com wallet to see how to get free Bitcoin Cash (BCH), here comes another update from btc.com: The Ultimate Guide to Get Your Bitcoin Cash

Step 1.: Log in to your wallet

Log in to your BTC wallet on your browser. Remember, while you BCC is safe no matter if you use the browser or the app version, the BCC extraction tool does not work in the app. We highly recommend you to use your desktop.

Discovering Wallet funds

Once more, click that green big button saying – Begin Discovery

Now, click on Continue Recovery

Recover Wallet Funds

Enter your Bitcoin Cash Address, for getting one I opened an account at hitbtc.com.

Waiting for confirmation

Now, wait some time and check your BCH to arrive at your address.

The complete this process took me about 8 hours, as I performed it on August 1st, just after bitcoin split, most of the exchanges experienced a heavy traffic and for most of the time had degradable experience. At the end my recovered BCH coins arrived at hitbtc.com exchange after all. (I tired to open kraken.com account, but haven’t been able to verify it yet, because of heavy traffic there)
