I am being flooded with queries/email regarding how to accessBitcoinGold and where to sell it.

I am really surprised to know how many are eager to dump or trade their BTG and buy other altcoins.

And why not? The BTG project has already given several hints of it being a shady altcoin. If you dont think so, then go through my previous post on Bitcoin Gold:

But before I start telling you where to sell your Bitcoin Gold, I want to clarify a few things about this Bitcoin Gold fork.

1.The Bitcoin Gold fork has already happenedaround October 24, 6 am UTC at the block height of491407.So at this time, if you had your BTC in a wallet where you control your private keys or you had your BTC in a BTG-supported exchange, then you are eligible to access or claim your BTG.

2.As of now, the actualhard forkon the blockchain didnt happen; rather, it was asnapshot hard fork.This simply means that a snapshot of the Bitcoin blockchain was taken at the block height of 491407 and BTCHODLers who had BTC at that time will be eligible for BTG when the actual BTG blockchain is live. So, in short, this snapshot fork acts as if it was the actual fork on the blockchain itself.

3.This was a theoretical hard fork, which doesnt exist right now.

4.So how are exchanges crediting BTG to its users?You are not getting real BTG. You are getting a token representing an equivalent amount of BTG which will be credited to exchange users when the BTG blockchain is live. But there are stillfutures of BTG trading on these exchanges.

5.The BTG blockchain is expected to go live on the 1st of November 2017 according to their initial statement, but I dont see that happening as this is not a hard deadline for them as shared by their lead dev in their Slack.

6.As of this writing, BTG has not developed a strong replay protection system. It also seems that they dont have the required expertise to do that because they are running abounty programfor help.

7.BTC holders who are holding their coins in wallets such as Exodus, Coinomi, , or something similar will not be able to access BTG until the actual blockchain is live, which is expected to happen in November.

8.Lastly, many users have asked what price I expect for BTG.I see its price being between 2% to 8% of BTC provided there is enough infrastructure like wallets, exchanges, etc. to support it.

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

Now that you know the exact status of the Bitcoin Gold fork (at the time of this writing), I think it is prudent to tell you about the exchanges where you can sell your BTG when it is all ready to go.

Binance, one of the most popular and fastest-growing exchanges, has also distributed BTG tokens and opened markets for trading BTG.

For more on Binance, see our detailed guide: Binance Cryptocurrency: A Unique And Rapidly Growing Crypto Exchange.

Binance took the screenshot at block 491,407 on 2017/10/24 01:20:39 (UTC Time) andstarted tradingit for its users immediately after.

Actual deposit/withdrawal of BTG is still not active on Binance, but expect it to be available when the BTG blockchain is stable and ready.

If you wish to trade BTG tokens, the following trading pairs are available on Binance(this can be done only if you had BTC on Binance at the time of the Bitcoin Gold fork snapshot):

After Bitfinex, Binance suspended the trading of Bitcoin gold, Bleutrade turned out to be the best place to sell your Bitcoin Gold. We have tested depositing BTG on Bleutrade and exchange it for BTG. So far, its the best exchange for selling your Bitcoin Gold.

HitBTC is a multi-cryptocurrency global trading platform that has been operating since 2013. They have alsoofficially announcedto support Bitcoin Gold post-fork.

HitBTC has allocated BTG tokens in a 1:1 ratio to its users.

Actual deposit/withdrawal of BTG is still now active on HitBTC and you can trade it with BTC and few other pairs.

If you wish to trade BTG tokens, the following trading pairs are available on HitBTC(this can be done only if you had BTC on HitBTC at the time of the Bitcoin Gold fork snapshot):

Here is theirverification policy and verification guide.

Bitfinex is one of the biggest Bitcoin exchanges out there. Like most of the biggest BTC exchanges, after the fork, Bitfinex provided its BTC holders with BTG tokens.

For this, Bitfinex has introduced its new Chain Split Tokens (CSTs) that will allow traders to trade on the potential activation and mining of the Bitcoin Gold consensus protocol.Note:Bitfinex will only be assigning BTG to balances greater than or equal to 0.01 BTC.

Actual deposit/withdrawal of BTG is still not active on Bitfinex, but expect it to be available when the BTG blockchain is stable and ready.

If you wish to trade BTG tokens, the following trading pairs are available on Bitfinex(this can be done if you had BTC on Bitfinex at the time of the Bitcoin Gold fork snapshot and also by depositing new BTC and exchanging them into CSTs):

Actual deposit/withdrawal of BTG is still not active on BitFlyer, but expect it to be available when the BTG blockchain is stable and ready.

Read BitFlyers official statement on BTG

There are a few more exchanges/wallets and mining pools that are interested in supporting Bitcoin Gold. But it seems that they have secretly declared their support. I was not able to find substantial official information from them, so I havent listed them.

I will be updating this list soon as I get more concrete official information, so keep an eye here onCoinSutra.

I have shared previously that forks are an integral part of the decentralized money system, so they are not a thing to get worried or afraid about.

Rather, I think theyre an opportunity for crypto users to become more mature in understanding this crypto-sphere, and also as a test for the strength Bitcoin.

Lastly, needless to say, it will be interesting to see how the story of BTG goes from here.

Now its time that to hear from you: Which BTG exchange you are using? Are your selling your BTG orHODLINGit? Let me know in the comments below!

Next: I will be publishing a list of wallets through which you can claim your BTG if you had kept your BTC in your control at the time of the snapshot fork.

How To Claim Your Free Bitcoin Gold [BTG] From Any Wallet

UBIQ Cryptocurrency: Top Things Beginners Need to Know

Im a big fan. Thanks for the great articles!

Thanks dear your post is very very educative to me I am gad I subscribed. Please I had my btc in my Blockchain. Info at the time of fork. And I wish to trade my bit gold if I am educated about it. I signed up in c-cez and coin exc&ange.io but have not startedvtransaction with any not yet sure of which to use and be safe. Thanks

Will update this article on BTG trading and accessing soon as it is confirmed officially from others.

Hi, great writeups! I have my bitcoin on a Trezor. I am thinking of the following procedure: make a paper wallet and send all btc from Trezor to the paper wallet. Then take a Btc-Gold wallet that allows sweeping the 24 words of my Trezor or entering the private keys (if I enter the 24 words in Mycelium-Android you can expose the private keys for all derived addresses).

My question is: what wallet (or online web script) allows me to sweep the words/private keys and send corresponding Btc Gold to an address (of exchange, want to sell them as quickly as possible).

Coinomi Wallet claims that they will be able to do that once the blockchain is live.

I had my BTC in my Jaxx wallet before but I need to trade my BTC today, will I still get BTG when the blockchain is live

Another thing if you had BTC in Jaxx and have its seed key then you will be able to claim BTC when its live.

Thanks, great job you are doing. I really needed to trade my coins and I didnt want to miss BTG at the same time. Thanks once more

You can trade now fork is over and regarding BTG claim I have clearly mentioned in the above article about the latest status.

If i had bitcoins in my jaxx wallet that i downloaded on my laptop, but i accessed/looked at my private keys after the fork, will i still be able to claim btg?

refer this guide Bitcoin Gold blockchain is live.

Bittrex and poloniex par kab se start hogi iski trading?

I am having my BTC in Coinomi wallet. I think Coinomi is not going to support Bitcoin Fork going to be happen between 14th Nov to 17th Nov-2017. Should I transfer by BTCs in or any other wallet before 14th Nov-2017.

No wallet has yet clearly stated its plans for November fork so the best thing to do is keep your Coins in your control.

What do you need to do if your bitcoins are on a Ledger Nano S? Thank you!

Wait for Ledger to support it or claim it through your seed via another BTG supported wallet.

Anyways you cant claim until the BTG blockchain live.

Can I claim them if I have an account on Binance?

Did you already publish the article about claiming btg if your btc was sitting in a wallet (like exodus) at the time of the fork?

refer this guide Bitcoin Gold blockchain is live.

During waiting the BTC Gold coming to my account in my Trezor wallet, can I sell some of my BTC in my Trezor wallet? Is there any effect on the number of the BTC Gold that I will receive? And is it safe to sell BTC currently?

Hi Sudhir, BitcoinIndia exchange has had some extremely bad reviews from its users past many months. Even in case of problems, their teams simply block the users from any correspondence on any social media platform and the users can simply rue their bad decision and misfortune. Criticizing comes to even biggest companies but people actually losing money and giving proof of the same against them is different. As a blogger with quite a number of followers (including myself), dont you feel you should take a stand against them atleast by not including them in BTG exchange list? Thanks

I gs my BTCs in a paper wallet by the time of the snapshot. How can i transfer them to an exchange so i can dumpem?

Sweep your paper wallet keys in a BTG supported wallet and then send those BTG on exchange to dump.

Coinomi is one BTG supported wallet for Android.

Some Exchanges like Changelly and Cex.io are thieves. Becareful with them. They charge more 300 to 1000 dollar over the spot rate. There are too many fee involves. Dont dump your hard earned money behind these coins. You are paying a lot of fees as well. Some of them charges deposit fee, withdraw fee, sending fee, receiving fee. And it is not small portion of your money.

hitbtc is not allowing deposits/withdrawals of bitcoin gold BTG. be aware, so they only trade what their userbase had before the fork. i guess other exchanges are still not accepting (poloniex). 17/11/21

I have a question now that things have passed roughly 4 months.

I notice that the ledger nano s has support for BTG (bitcoin gold) as legacy or segwit. Now, say I set my nano up as legacy and I store my BTG using that, when I send them to another wallet or exchange, and the exchange is using segwit for the that particular coin, will my BTG still arrive at that address? Is that how it works?

Thank you so much. I am confused as to the the legacy vs. segwit. I know its a new type of delivery system but currently allot of ppl I talk to are using legacy to store their BTG in the ledger nano s and are afraid to transfer any of them out due to the address possibly being segwit, Does it even matter?

It matters if you like low transaction fee feature of segwit.

Yes, your coins will arrive at the segwit address of exchange for BTG.
