I have BTC in an account with Coinbase.
Since Coinbase doesn't support BCH, they don't provide access to it.
In all honesty I don't know much about bitcoin and how to move my BTC from Coinbase to an offline wallet, so when I received the notification they wouldn't support the split, I didn't understand the ramifications.
From the little I understand at this point, I believe this is the situation I find myself in, and I am looking for verification that my points below are correct - hence this question:
Coinbase owns the private key to my wallet with them.
If I now move my BTC to a different wallet, to which I own the private key, only the BTC will be moved.
As such, the BCH (which is technically mine), is held against the private key in my Coinbase wallet, and won't be moved.
Therefore, to all intents and purposes, unless Coinbase is somehow persuaded to release the BCH and/or private keys to their BTC customers, that BCH is lost to me.
Is there any way for me to obtain access to my BCH?
