Now that bitcoin gold launched, I am looking for a way to get my BTG from the BTC paper wallet they were held at the forked block.

I know Coinomi works, but it only has an android app... any other that has a web or desktop app?

  • I'm asking specifically for non-android (Coinomi) which hasn't been answered.

  • If you go to bitcoingold.org/downloads you can see a variety of wallets that support BTG. HOWEVER I only deem Trezor, Ledger and Coinomi as trustworthy. If you want to take the risk, go on and try the other wallets.

  • That question is not android-specific, so I think it covers this question too. I think it's better to keep all the responses in the same place. If you find a good solution, why don't to reply to the other question? ;-) Dec 6 '17 at 1:47
  • brec's answer below is a good solution. I'm letting him copy it to the other question to take the credit

You can run Coinomi through the Google Chrome browser. You install the ARC Welder extension... https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/arc-welder/emfinbmielocnlhgmfkkmkngdoccbadn

...which lets you run Android apps without an Android device. Download the required .apk (the wallet app) from https://coinomi.com/downloads .

Edit: I discovered this on this reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/BitcoinAirdrops/comments/7hc0qu/best_way_to_claim_bcash_from_old_core_walletdat/

which also has some possibly helpful tips.

  • This worked! Thank you. Please copy your answer to the question marked as duplicate so that it may be helpful for others too.
