Andy asked 1 year ago

Hi, I am using electrum wallet and see all kinds of complicated and dodgy-sounding ways to get the BCH, but I dont want to mess around I barely understand electrum anyway.
Is there a way to just transfer all my balance to some exchange where it will also show my BCH, then sell the BCH for BTC and then send it all back to my electrum wallet?

Hi that will be interesting, but for now I just want to get hold of the BCH, I can’t sell it till I have it. Thanks!

Hi Andy, we will write a post soon about how to buy Bitcoin Cash on the market. In the mean time, you can check the exchanges listed on where you can buy directly Bitcoin Cash.

Hey Andy, just to follow up on this, at the moment I don’t know of any exchange that will automatically give you BCC if you didn’t have your BTC on the site at the time of the split.
My guess is that you’ll have to “mess” with your keys if you want to get BCH.

Oops, replied in wrong place to Zsofia….

Yes It looks like no other options. A good reason to hold on to it for now and see if it becomes worth all the bother. Thanks.
