Recovery via seed word for BCH?


Recommended Posts

Hey there, I have my BTC wallet @ blockchain.info (I know - stupid) and did not transfer the BTC to for example kraken or a hardware wallet.

blockchain.info replied after my email, "bad luck, we do not support BCH".

kraken replied to my email, "bad luck, as your BTC werent @ kraken on fork day".

The only possibility that I read about is to use the seed word (recovery phrase) from the blockchain.info wallet as it holds the BTC private key and thus the BCH private key. But I also read there is no tested and secure wallet for this.

Anybody who tried it, or has a different idea? THX, paula

you can try it.

 

1) transfer all your bitcoins from blockchain wallet to another wallet (different blockchain account, or electrum, or anyone else) and wait for ~ 5 confirmations .... so your bitcoins are completely safe now.

2) read this link Step 1 to Step 14   (step 6 u can use the online tool)

3) download electron cash from http://www.electroncash.org/ and run it

 

Enter a wallet name -> Standard Wallet -> Use public or private keys -> insert your private key.

Worked like a charm - thx a lot! 

Afterwards I tried to send and receive BCH from electron cash to cryptopia and back - worked as well without any problem.

Next thing will be to stay away from this old blockchain.info origin wallet and switch to a hardware one - just to be on the safe side...

cheers again, paula
