I have a electrum wallet with 2fa. The addresses in this wallet all start with 3. When I export private keys and import them in electron cash to get Bitcoin cash, the addresses start with 1 instead. And the balance shows 0.

Why? What should I do to get my Bitcoin cash?

  • An adress starting with 3 is either segwit or Multisignature, and segwit isn't supported by BCH, hence why it would start with a 1 on their chain. Nov 14, 2017 at 16:07
  • @RutgerV. BCH does support multisignature though (and P2SH in general), which is what electrum uses with 2FA I believe, so your comment is incorrect Nov 18, 2017 at 1:07
