Bitcoin Gold is a fork of Bitcoin, sharing its history up until the block height 491407 (around October 24, 6 am UTC). If you have held bitcoins on TREZOR before this block,you will have the same bitcoin gold balance as your bitcoin balance (at the time of the fork)

Bitcoin Gold is not Bitcoin. It merely uses bitcoins history similarly to the case of Bitcoin Cash. This process will not affect your Bitcoin wallet at all.

Please go toTREZOR Walletto update your device firmware.

Make sure you have your recovery seed accessible, in case you are asked to recover your device after a firmware update. Never update firmware without your seed nearby.

Make sure your firmware isupdated to 1.6.0before you start the claiming process.

Open theClaim Toolin your browser. The link istrezor.io/claim-btg

Select the account type from which you want to claim your bitcoin gold either standard account (SegWit enabled) or legacy account.

Click onConnect with TREZORand authenticate yourself in the TREZOR Connect window. Let it run the discovery process. Depending on the size of your accounts, this may take a minute.

Select an account with a positive BTG balance. Input an address in which you want to receive your BTG. The default address is taken from your TREZOR, but you can enter any BTG address.

Bitcoin Gold addresses start with either A or G as the first symbol.

Click onClaim amount, and confirm the transaction in TREZOR Connect. The claim tool will refresh and you will see aTransaction successfulbanner. Now you can repeat the process for your other accounts.

Go toTREZOR Walletand authenticate yourself. (If you do this immediately after claiming your BTG, your TREZOR is already unlocked no need to enter PIN.)

In the upper left corner, click on the currency selector and chooseBitcoin Gold (BTG). You will be brought to your BTG wallet, first account. If you claimed BTG to this account, the transaction would appear here.

When you use our claim tool, you are effectively sending your BTG from BTC addresses to your new BTG addresses. You are splitting BTG away from the Bitcoin pre-fork history, so that your BTG and BTC wont share common addresses anymore.
