How to split BCHA from BCH using Electron Cash?

Update July 2021:

On July 1, 2021 BCHA was renamed eCash. It was also denominated, 1 BCHA = 1,000,000 XEC eCash link.

The fork took place and the BCHA chain seems to have survived, so the new coin was created.

I promised to give you a description how to claim the new coin in this case.

You must know that BCH and BCHA do not have replay protection. This means that if you send BCH, BCHA will be sent with it. Therefore you have to split your coin.

Watch this video if you want learn about replay protection

To do this you need to download and install the desktop version of Electron Cash. Then create a wallet in Electron Cash by importing your seed. If you import seed from Exodus wallet, use the default derivation path of electron cash m/44'/145'/0'. If you enter seed from Bitcoin.com wallet or read.cash, use the derivation path m/44'/0'/0'.

After you have imported your seed you will see in Electron Cash your transactions and your amount.

Then do the steps described here

Now your BCHA is not sent when you make BCH transactions.

Wallets which supports BCHA, you can find here.

There are probably exchanges who can do the split for you. As far as I know, binance in coinex do that.

You can use also this service. (Update: This service doesn't longer work)

https://splitbch.com/

You can expect to receive unsplit coins over time because many people will not split their BCH. You will probably get some BCH with the BCHA share in the future. Also here in read.cash. You can always split the coins in the way described above and claim BCHA again and again.

Why it's important to split the coin?

If you have not split your BCHA from BCH, your BCHA will be lost if you send your BCH to somebody or if you swap it. For example: you have an unsplit 0.1 BCH. That is worth $24.8 plus about $1.4 in BCHA. If you don't split it, you will lose the $1.4 BCHA during the swap.

I split my coins this way and it worked.

If you split your coins you can swap your BCHA to BCH using https://abc.voluntarism.dev/

You can do it. They is BCH split (without BCHA) and BCH unsplit (with BCHA). If you send BCH split, you send only BCH, if you send BCH unsplit, you send BCH and BCHA.

Coins.ph actually hasn't confirmed to resume progress, and even then, they're a 13-conf wallet service.

is that a bad thing? what should I do then? Will I still retrieve my $2?

Just wait. I suspect coins.ph is waiting for confirmations. Coins.ph is an exchange not a usual wallet. Many exchanges suspended their work. Coins.ph must have written it on the coins ph website.

Those BCH coins was split from BCHA(or BCHA split from BCH) by coinex. You can transfer it to any bch wallet and use it.

Is it safe to make transactions now and if you split your bch would the value decrease?

$ 0.00
1 year ago

Unsplit coin has a slightly higher value because it includes BCH and BCHA, but if you sell unsplit coin on the exchanges, most exchanges will probably ignore BCHA and you will only get the BCH price. BCHA is then lost. But most Exchanges have not yet resumed BCH deposits and withdrawals.

So it's better not to split? Btw what will happen if I convert my bch

$ 0.00

If you swap unsplit BCH, you lose your BCHA share. It's best to do nothing or send your coin to coinex. Many people here have already done it.

$ 0.00

So it's okay now to transfer them? I am seeing a post that they send BCH today but didn't arrive on their wallets..

Try with a few cents if you are scared. I have already made several transactions after the fork with the split coin and unsplit coin. It all worked.

Which post is it?

This has happened to me too. Is this process still stalled?

This is my short post, Is there anyone who has made a withdrawal yesterday or today, And also received it in his or her personal/Payeer's BCH wallet?

Please tell me because I haven't received my withdrawal of 3$ BCH at my Payeer's BCH Or in another cryptocurrency, could it be a withdrawal? Let me know if you have any experience with this.

Some people sells BCHA immediately. I will hold my BCHA for a while. Perhaps it will increase in value after all. And if the value should fall, then I won't lose much. It is only 5% of the value of my BCH.

I think when the dust will settle down, it might gain some value after all.

I wish I knew what to do but I stilll have no clue. I do not have any of these wallets. The only one I use is Bitvavo and I downloaded Exodus but as I understand it's useless.

I wonder how I can send BCHA too if I don't have it plus how to split if I have only BCH.

What I wonder about too is why they split the block chain this way.

Then send your BCH to coinex, try guarda wallet, the bchsplit.com tool. Or forget the new coi simply.

I paid bchsplit a visit, watched the videos, became a bit wiser and for now I leave it this way. If my connection is a bit better I might try out something or let it be. It's no big deal at least not for me.

Unsplit coin have the same address. If you split the coin you select an different address for each coin.

Good morning, I need urgent help, I would be very grateful if you could help. I had old bchs too. I'm splitting from my ledger wallet on splitbch.org. However, the last bitcoin cash I sent split my cash, but it is not coming to my own exchange account. I even wrote a few bch addresses, but it doesn't come, there is a " 6 Wait for confirmation" message for days. I don't know what to do please help me I would be grateful.

Does this mean that one can't send BCH into his wallet without splitting first.

You can do it, but you always send BCHA along. Better is to split the coin, then BCHA stays in electron cash and you can later send it to another wallet that will support BCHA.
