If you want to learn how to split BCHA from BCH using Electron Cash, read my tutorial:

https://read.cash/@Telesfor/how-to-split-bcha-from-bch-using-electron-cash-ea56683f

People who do not have a PC can register with the exchange coinex and claim the coins by the exchange

https://www.coinex.com/

Watch the video made by Hayden Otto to learn how to do it:

Tutorial for the case when Exodus will support BCHA(BAB). Attention: Exodus does not yet support BCHA.

Many people ask how to claim the new coin Bitcoin ABC (called BCHA or BAB) and whether BCH will be lost during the possible fork on November 15, 2020

You do not need to worry. Your BCH is safe and I present to you probably the easiest way to claim the new coin BCHA or BAB. I do it with the example of BSV, because the new Coin does not exist yet. But it works identically for BCHA (BAB), you just have to mentally replace BSV with BCHA(BAB).

First download and install on your PC Exodus Wallet https://exodus.io

Transfer your BCH to the BCH address on the Exodus wallet several hours before the fork.

Then wait until the fork is over. Do not move the coins during the fork.

After the fork, Exodus will offer the new coin BCHA (or perhaps under the name BAB). You may need to update exodus after the fork to see the new coin.

Choose this coin (I will demonstrate it with the BSV, because the BCHA(BAB) does not yet exist, but it works identically)

Click on claim Bitcoin ABC BCHA(BAB)

Then on claim BCHA(BAB) now.

After a short waiting period your BCHA(BAB) is claimed and you can use both coins.

There will probably be many other ways to claim the new coin. To do so, you will need to know your private key. In the desktop version of Exodus you can view your private key. Atomic wallet and Trust wallet allows you to view your private keys in the smartphone app.

Possibly there will be no fork at all (nobody will mine the new chain) then the new coin will not be created.

PS

I have been using Exodus Wallet for PC and Android for years.

According to @fexonice article, he said when claiming the fork coin, you would need to import your private key from your wallet, is that true sir?

You only need to know your private key (write it down). That is all. If you know your private key, you can later claim the new coin. You can do this in a month or even in 5 months (as long as the new coin exists at all).

Another question sir, how long will the forking will be?

$ 0.00

It takes 6 blocks, so about 1 hour. You can follow it here

https://cash.coin.dance/

Fork will only take place if ABC blocks will be different from BCHN and BU blocks. BCHN and BU blocks will be the same.

The probability is very low. I am curious to see if there will be a fork at all. At the moment no one seems to use the ABC software. The theoretical price is falling from day to day. On Sunday it is perhaps near zero.

Yes, the Exodus wallet has also announced that it will probably not support the coin. I have updated my article.

Okay, so sir is it safe to let our BCH stay on Bitcoin.com wallet and let it float? Since the fork probability is too low then maybe I will not consider transferring my BCH in coinex..

Your BCH is safe. Your BCH isn't in the bitcoin.com wallet. Your BCH is in the blockchain. I wrote about it here

https://read.cash/@Telesfor/how-does-bitcoin-cash-wallet-work-7c14aab0

If you know your seed from Bitcoin.com, you will be able to claim the new coin later (if it exists and is worth anything).

I noted the names you mentioned and will wait what they fought out after the hardfork is realized. I guess sooner or later the brokers will accept the new coins since Citcoincash and Bitcoin SV are created after hardforks as well and available.

Actually, the naming schemes have only been set by the large exchanges to the following:

Bitcoin ABC's IFP BCH = BCHA (CoinEx Futures) / BAB (Kraken) / BCHABC (Other Exchanges)

Bitcoin Cash = BCHN (CoinEx Futures) / BCH (Kraken)

Thanks for sharing this sir. I still have a confusing aspect. Assuming I transfer $10 of BCH there before the fork. After the fork now, will a get $10 worth of BCHA/ BAB and $10 worth of BCHN or it's just the quantity e.g 0.09 BCH that will be available to me? I anticipate your reply Sir. Thanks in advance

You get one BCHA for 1 BCH. The price of both coins after the split is unknown.

Do I have to manually claim forks? For most forks, they automatically appear after the software supports it. Also, do you know if Ledger will support BCHA?

I do not know of any software that automatically splits the forks. I think that only exchanges do that ( see link below ). If ledger supports it, I don't know.

I guess you are right. I first received my BCH on Coinbase which is technically an exchange and I didn't have to do a thing. I do receive some other smaller irrelevant coins from time to time in my Ledger without me doing anything.

I've read a lot of other articles which have described the success of the fork on November 15 impossible. Now reading this, I'm having a hard time knowing which to actually believe. I hope you understand what I mean

It is conceivable that the fork, does not take place at all. Then no new coin is created and you can not claim anything. The description is only for the case when the fork takes place.

$ 0.00

Ook now I understand you. Your article is about preparing people for the steps to take to be eligible for the forked coin if at all the fork is successful. Nice one!. Though I have another question. Is there any risk involved if at all you sent your BCH to the said qualified wallet and the fork's possibility happens to go the other way on the said date? Will your BCH be affected/lost or something?

$ 0.00

Your BCH is not lost during the fork, because your BCH is not stored in the wallet. I have written about it here:
