How to claim my BitcoinCash

For every Bitcoin(BTC or XBT) you hold you will be getting a BitcoinCash(BCC or BCH).

Moving your BTC to paper wallet is the sure-shot way for getting your BCC but it is going to be little cumbersome especially considering that the prices of BCC may go down drastically after the fork and you might need to redeeem your BCC and sell it before that. If you don’t mind that and would prefer moving them to paper wallet (or any wallet which supports private keys) should be the de-facto option.

If you are not too technical and you are still finding your way with Bitcoin you can plan to move them to Exchanges.
There are couple of exchanges that have already announced their support for the split like

  1. Bitfinex
  2. Kraken
  3. ViaBTC
  4. LiveCoin

More exchanges might add support by tomorrow. If you trust them enough you can move your bitcoins there.
